ATLANTA, March 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi (NYSE: PGI), the world's largest pure-play provider of collaboration software and services, today made mobile calendaring even smarter with its latest Agenday™ smart calendar app release, empowering mobile workers to efficiently poll meeting attendees for availability, schedule meetings on-the go and bring the calendar into the wearable era with Android smartwatch integration. Agenday by PGi was named "Best Mobile Calendar" last year by the Best Mobile App Awards and is free for all iOS® and Android® smartphones.
The Agenday smartwatch app helps busy workers better manage their days—right on their wrists—and includes four unique features:
- Meetings Watchface: With a single glance, see when you have meetings and when you have free time, minimizing missed meetings and late attendance.
- Running Late: Send a message to meeting attendees if you're running behind—right from your smartwatch.
- Join Meeting: Quickly join iMeet® and GlobalMeet® online meetings or initiate a conference call by simply tapping a button on your watch.
- Weather Watchface: Displays the current time and weather conditions.
Forget about time-sucking "who's available and when" back-and-forth email chains. Instead, Agenday users can use the exciting new Free/Busy Polling feature, which enables iOS and Android users to see when others are free or busy and efficiently schedule meetings on-the-go. Agenday Free/Busy Polling users can—auto-magically within the app—find the best date and time for meetings or events in three simple steps:
- Send the Free/Busy Poll with your available dates and times.
- Invitees respond via email or Agenday, indicating the date and time options that work for them.
- Click to schedule your meeting at a time that works for everyone.
"The features in this Agenday release were inspired by our busiest users—from CEOs to salespeople—who need to work smarter, faster," said David Guthrie, PGi chief technology officer. "By extending Agenday's value to the smartwatch and adding intelligent, user-centric features like Free/Busy Polling, the PGi Innovation Lab has once again delivered on our promise to empower businesses and workers with the solutions they need to drive better collaboration for better results."
