Web-Based Meeting Managers

Friday, July 6, 2007 at 10:30pm by Site Administrator

While Apple fanboys and girls are going nuts over the recently-released iPhone just because it’s from Apple, I’m thinking of all the web-based applications an on-the-go nomadic digital entrepreneur can run on them or even a variety of other web-enabled phones. One of the big problems of being on the go is the scheduling or rescheduling of meetings – especially if more than one person is involved.

Well, as long as you have email access, Ikordo, a meeting planning service, will ensure that all expected parties are contacted and the most optimal time slot for everyone is chosen. This is accomplished by repeated “negotiations” between Ikordo and attendees. When the meeting time is set, a text or email message is sent out.

According to Mashable, there are still some glitches, and you probably don’t want to try scheduling a same-day meeting. But as a former assistant project manager responsible for bringing together clients, vendors and the project team, I know how hard meeting management can be.

The next step for something like Ikordo appears to be a better response time so that mobile entrepreneurs can schedule same-day or at least next-day meetings. Booking a room, however, is probably going to remain up to you, the coordinator, for the time being.

Of course, if Ikordo doesn’t work for you, you could try meeting management via Google Calendar, which allows personal schedules to be shared with one or more people – provided all have GMail accounts.
