AUSTIN, TX, Jul 17, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- NetSimplicity Software, the recognized leader in easy-to-use software that simplifies everyday office administrative tasks and a division of Forgent Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FORG), announced today a milestone win, securing its 200th law firm customer.
"NetSimplicity has taken the time to understand the needs of the legal industry," says Faye G. Kubacha, Director of Office Services at Jenner & Block LLP, one of the most trusted and respected law firms in the country. "We had no coordinated firm-wide method for handling conference room reservations, catering and equipment needs. Meeting Room Manager provided the solution we were seeking -- a user-friendly, automated system for firmwide use with configurable features critical for a law firm," Kubacha said. "NetSimplicity's support was outstanding throughout the process. Our meetings, events and guest office arrangements are now handled efficiently and consistently. NetSimplicity has helped us dramatically improve the operation of our firm's Conference Centers."

Law firms using Meeting Room Manager provide enhanced client meeting experiences, reduce the wasted time associated with inefficient scheduling, and more accurately track and charge for usage of meeting rooms and associated services such as catering and equipment.
"Legal consultations, team meetings, client conferences, interviews and depositions are but a few activities within firms that require accurate scheduling procedures. With Meeting Room Manager, anyone responsible for managing these assignments can do so with confidence, knowing that their automated scheduling system is keeping track of 'who goes where, and when,'" said Nancy Harris, Vice President of NetSimplicity. "Add to that the ability to schedule catering services and other resources and you've got a great solution for law firm conference room scheduling."
This latest version of NetSimplicity's room scheduling software provides a complete all-in-one scheduling solution empowering users throughout the organization to schedule rooms and resources from any standard web browser, Outlook®, and LCD Panel -- reducing administrative costs and increasing workforce productivity associated with the planning of meetings.
