January 26, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
January 25, 2012 -- The world's leading online distributor of public videoconferencing and telepresence facilities today announced it has successfully integrated with the calendaring systems of an additional 300 public video conferencing rooms in the USA.
Whygo offers a network of more than 3000 public video conferencing & telepresence venues worldwide with 24-hour service by three global operation centres located in Dallas, London and Sydney. As of today, over 800 of these venues now offer real-time availability and instant confirmations, just like booking a hotel or a flight online.
The increase is part of a bigger roll out that will see a further 400 global locations added in the coming weeks offering real-time availability and instant confirmations on the Whygo platform resulting in more than one third of the Whygo network being completely automated.
James Matthews, Whygo's chief executive officer said, "We have been working closely with room suppliers the world over for many years to make this a reality so we are very excited about this recent launch. Today we use simple calendar synchronizations with Outlook, iCal, Entourage, Google Calendar, iPhone and Blackberry, etc. which means public video conferencing room providers can continue to use the existing calendaring systems they use today and at the same time, simplify the availability and booking process for online providers and customers worldwide."
This recent release comes only weeks after Whygo launches its new private & public video room scheduler allowing end users to schedule both their private video rooms with any of the 3000+ public rooms all on the one platform. Click here to see release.

Whygo Videoconferencing specializes in providing public video conferencing facilities to both direct and channel customers worldwide. Whygo was the first broker of public video conferencing facilities to develop and deploy an online global booking system. Not only can users search over 3000+ public video conferencing facilities, they can check availability and book hundreds of those venues in real time, which delivers instant confirmations.
Whygo's online scheduling system doesn't just stop with the end user. They expanded the system so it can be easily re-branded for other agents, brokers and room providers to utilize and help drive conversions for both their own facilities and the Whygo database of global public locations online.
Whygo has operations in Sydney, London and Dallas, open 24 hours to seamlessly service their direct and channel customers. Leveraging this unique service and software offering, many large and small video conferencing operators outsource their public room hire service to Whygo to fulfil.
