December 5, 2011 | Hogan Keyser
Addison, Texas (PRWEB) December 02, 2011 -- The world's leading online distributor of public videoconferencing and telepresence facilities today announced it has successfully re-designed, developed and implemented its next generation telepresence and videoconferencing scheduling platform, which now includes enterprise and B2B.

Whygo' s scheduling platform has been developed from the ground up over the last eight years based on both direct customer and channel partner feedback. Considering Whygo' s channel partners comprise of more than 50 of the world's major managed service providers and their customers, the user feedback has been priceless and, as such, the new Whygo platform demonstrates just that.

  • Your own company branding
  • Book multiple locations in one conference
  • Your own video conferencing or telepresence locations

  • Live availability of your own facilities using Whygo's Calendar Sync (Outlook, iCal & Lotus Notes)
  • Your call rates calculated automatically
The new scheduling platform enables the delivery of real-time meeting management services. Designed to bring the end user world of videoconferencing & telepresence systems and facilities together with the public facility network in a combined, seamless, high quality environment.

Whygo ensures that users are able to create meetings with any combination of system, platform and connectivity, with the entire process automated from booking to billing.
Synchronizing calendars is easy with Whygo, meaning users who keep their facility availability using Outlook, Lotus Notes, Entourage and many more internal calendaring platforms don't need to change platforms or existing processes.

Whygo simply syncs with existing systems calendars so when users use their Whygo system they will have live real-time availability of their own facilities on the one video scheduling platform.

Whygo's system is cloud-based so users can simply subscribe to the service and be up and running in minutes. A multi-tenant architecture ensures that users are able to see only their own private sites, however, should they want access to other B2B communities or networks, it is just a matter of providing access to the user accounts.

The new platform provides the ability to upload and display fixed network and dial-up network tariffs meaning users can see exactly how much their private or private & public room and connection costs will be. Add in the Whygo reporting tool and users can get all the insight they need from ROI to travel savings.

The new Whygo platform was implemented in late August 2011 and is now visible on over 300 partner websites.

"The development of this application solves a very real gap in the video facility scheduling market," James Matthews, Whygo's Chief Executive Officer said. "We have many customers using our platform to schedule public facilities today and on many occasions they asked if they could schedule their own private rooms as well. Well now for the first time they can and they can see live availability of their private rooms. We are very excited about it and hope everyone likes it."
