Meeting Booking Tool Adds 2,000 Video Conferencing, Telepresence Studios Worldwide

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. and SYDNEY, May 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Worktopia, Inc., the leading provider of real-time sourcing solutions for meetings, and Whygo Videoconferencing Pty, Ltd today announced a content distribution and provisioning agreement providing Worktopia Universal Meeting Solution™ users with end to end, around the clock provisioning support for video conference and telepresence sessions along with access to special rates and terms when booking in over 2,000 additional locations globally.

The move by Worktopia is aimed at making world class video conferencing alternatives accessible and easy to book for meeting arrangers in companies of all sizes.  James Matthews, Managing Director of Whygo, said, "Larger companies with sophisticated video networks can now broaden the reach of their own programs, while mid-market and smaller companies can efficiently access a global network of public video conference facilities on an as-needed basis, without the need for capital investment or technical expertise."

Worktopia CEO, John Arenas said, "We are pleased to add end-to-end provisioning by Whygo's global support team, as we bring the public video conference and telepresence networks into the mainstream of  the business travel sourcing process and strategic meetings management."  Under the new agreement, Whygo agents will handle each booking, from confirmation to provisioning to call testing, as needed in order to ensure a high quality video conferencing experience.
