One-touch conference calling app developed for use with Apple Watch
REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Folio3 Software Inc., maker of the MeetingMogul one-touch conference-call-connection application that works with all major conference service providers, today announced a new version of the app that was custom-developed specifically for use with the Apple Watch.
Folio3 Founder and CEO Adnan Lawai said the updated version of the MeetingMogul app for the Apple Watch takes advantage of newly released functionality Apple has introduced with the latest update to the Watch's operating system. Now, with MeetingMogul for Apple Watch, there's no longer any excuse to be late for a conference call.
"With MeetingMogul's Apple Watch app, we have one-upped Dick Tracy. Apple lets users call their contacts through the watch, but MeetingMogul lets them join conference calls with just one tap," Lawai said. "The best part is that our app for the Apple Watch allows users to connect and be part of a conference call with one touch, see meeting reminders, notify attendees when they are running late and review a summary of their daily calls or online meetings right from their wrists."
"The whole point of the MeetingMogul app for the Apple Watch is to provide users on the go – whether business people or consumers -- with the ultimate convenience," he said, adding that no other conference-dialing app for the Apple Watch does as much for users as MeetingMogul delivers.
Key features of the MeetingMogul app for the Apple Watch include:
- Being able to call into a meeting or conference call and participate without using another mobile device to check a calendar or dial lengthy strings of conferencing-bridge numbers plus related codes;
- The ability to talk directly through the Apple Watch, without the need to be connected to a Bluetooth device;
- One-touch dialing into a meeting or conference call by simply tapping the MeetingMogul icon on the watch's display;
- Reminders of meetings or conference calls, with a one-touch icon to either join or send a pre-composed "running late" email to other invited attendees; and
- A high-level view of the day's agenda.
The no-hassle apps bring a mobile-first approach to virtual meetings by using mobile and web technology to simplify the preparation, attendance and follow-up actions for meetings, especially for participants calling in from remote locations or during international travel where dialing into a conference bridge may be subject to high mobile-roaming charges.
No setup is needed with MeetingMogul. Users simply install the app on the Apple Watch or smartphone and get started right away. The application automatically recognizes and syncs with the mobile device's calendar to import scheduled meetings and conference calls while also integrating with leading CRM solutions.
