iMeet® Agenday™ Smart Calendar App Comes to Apple Watch™
Award-winning Mobile Calendaring and Productivity App Launches Feature-rich Apple Watch Integration to Help Busy Workers Better Manage Their Days in the Office or On the Go
Jul 8, 2015
ATLANTA, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi (NYSE: PGI), the world's largest dedicated provider of collaboration software and services, today announced that iMeet Agenday is now available on Apple Watch. Shortly after announcing new enterprise features that boost company-wide productivity and cut mobile conferencing costs, iMeet Agenday's smart calendar app now syncs with the Apple Watch, bringing you your daily schedule with a simple glance at your wrist.
iMeet Agenday is PGi's smartphone app that combines all of your calendars automatically so you can easily navigate a consolidated view of all your personal and professional activities. The app displays one easy-to-read daily schedule and, with one touch, lets you join online meetings, dial into conferences, call a group of people, send "running late" messages, get turn-by-turn driving directions and more. iMeet Agenday also polls attendees to find the best time to meet and automatically updates Salesforce.com while on the go, letting sales professionals log sales calls and add contacts directly from the app.
The innovative iMeet Agenday smartwatch integration helps busy workers better manage their days with three unique features for Apple Watch:
- Daily Agenda: Simply tap the iMeet Agenday icon on your watch to view your agenda for the day. Swipe up to view today's meetings, and swipe left or right to see yesterday's calendar and tomorrow's agenda. Tap on any event to learn more about your upcoming meeting, including the location, organizer, invitees and meeting notes.
- Glances: Using the Glance feature, iMeet Agenday shows you a countdown to your next scheduled event, so you'll never be late to another meeting. If you are finished for the day, the app shows you a preview of tomorrow's first meeting. Heading into the weekend? iMeet Agenday displays the local weather to help you decide on the beach or a day indoors.
- Notifications: iMeet Agenday sends you automatic, customizable notifications for upcoming meetings and events. Any notifications you normally receive on your smartphone will also appear on your Apple Watch.
"PGi is thrilled to bring iMeet Agenday to the Apple Watch as part of our ongoing mission to help busy workers collaborate smarter and boost productivity—anytime, anywhere and on any device," said David Guthrie, PGi chief technology officer. "The iMeet Agenday app for Apple Watch is the perfect intersection of PGi's commitment to innovation and our focus on bringing better collaboration to today's worker wherever they are."
In addition to its award-winning smart calendar app, PGi's expanding iMeet portfolio of unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) products includes all-in-one web, video and audio conferencing and webcasting.
