AUSTIN, TX, Jun 28, 2006 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- NetSimplicity Software today announced general availability of Meeting Room Manager (MRM) On Demand, a new hosted offering of its room scheduling software that will enable customers to get up and running without having to install, upgrade or maintain the software in their own server environment.
"We contacted the support staff at NetSimplicity to see if they could help us use their system to schedule 401(k) personalized investment consultations for a large client. With their unwavering assistance, they were able to structure their online scheduling service to meet our needs," said Aviva Yoffe, Vice President, Sr. Communications Manager, MFS Investment Management, Inc. "Even with many users with varied backgrounds and systems experience, all have found this system easy to work with," Yoffe added.
MRM On Demand allows users to view room schedules and book meetings from any standard web browser, from their Microsoft Outlook® calendars, and from interactive LCD panels at the conference room door. Administrators can control booking rights, automate room and service requests, and manage resource utilization and charges. By providing an integrated, automated and managed scheduling system, Meeting Room Manager makes meetings work, improves productivity and reduces costs -- fixing problems that affect virtually everyone in the organization. MRM On Demand is available in various grades of functionality including Basic, Pro and Enterprise editions, thereby allowing organizations to meet their needs at a price point they can afford.
"We believe that our new On Demand offering will enable customers of all sizes and needs to get started right away enjoying the benefits of Meeting Room Manager," said Nancy Harris, Vice President of NetSimplicity. "The On Demand offering lowers up-front costs and doesn't require customers to make a capital investment, thereby reducing the barrier to entry for all buyers. In addition, the On Demand product makes deployment easier for an organization's IT group because the software resides on our third party hosting provider's servers, thereby reducing the deployment burden on IT."
NetSimplicity's Meeting Room On Demand pricing starts at $19.99 per month per user. Customers can sign up month-to-month or via an annual contract.
