AUSTIN, TX, Jan 31, 2006 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- NetSimplicity, a leading provider of office administration software and a division of Forgent Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: FORG), announced today the general availability of a new Interactive LCD Solution for its flagship room scheduling software, Meeting Room Manager.
With the new Interactive LCD Solution, users can view meeting room schedules and book meeting rooms -- on the spot. The solution provides interactive touch-screen computer panels that can be placed on reception desks, or wall-mounted outside meeting rooms or in lobbies. From each panel, users can find a scheduled meeting, see at-a-glance whether one or more rooms are currently available, and book those rooms from the touch-screen interface. Their attractive design creates a positive impression for staff and visitors.
The Interactive LCD Solution is fully integrated with NetSimplicity's Meeting Room Manager, which enables users to view room schedules, book meeting rooms, and manage meeting logistics from any Web browser. Customers can optionally apply Meeting Room Manager's security model to control who in their organizations has access to view room schedules, book rooms, and modify existing bookings -- even from each LCD panel.
By synchronizing planned and ad hoc use of meeting rooms, Meeting Room Manager with the Interactive LCD Solution makes it easy for everyone in an organization to find meetings and meeting rooms and avoid booking conflicts. As the only vendor on the market to offer the flexibility of secure, integrated, multi-room booking from both Web and LCD panel, NetSimplicity offers the most comprehensive and cost-effective solution to manage scheduling for all of an organization's rooms from any location.
"Our customers have told us of their need for ad hoc meeting support. With the Interactive LCD Solution, people can walk up to an LCD panel and instantly see where their meeting is, what rooms are available, and what's in those rooms -- and of course book a room on the spot," said Nancy Harris, Vice President of NetSimplicity. "Ad hoc meetings are part of how people work: the Meeting Room Manager with the Interactive LCD Solution provides the most effective way for organizations to meet these needs."
Benefits of the Meeting Room Manager with the Interactive LCD Solution include:
The Interactive LCD Solution, priced at $2,499, includes the specialized scheduling software and touch-enabled LCD computer. It is available as an optional add-on to the Web and Enterprise editions of Meeting Room Manager version 6.5. For more information, see Interactive LCD Solution.
