Dallas, TX, February 27, 2012
-- WHYGO, the world's leading online distributor of public video conferencing and Telepresence facilities and myVRM, the world's leading scheduling software for private video conferencing and Telepresence facilities, formed a strategic partnership to help end users and channel partners schedule both private & public video conferencing and Telepresence facilities via the Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes scheduling platforms.

Mutual clients using WHYGO's public room network and myVRM's scheduling platform will soon be able to do all their private and public room scheduling via a simple Outlook plug-in. This will be a world first, which not only allows users to easily load and book their private rooms, but also a global network of over 3000 public rooms.

"This will be the utopia of scheduling platforms that has been talked about for so long," says James Matthews, CEO of WHYGO. "I don't know how scheduling private and public video conferencing rooms will get any easier."

Users will be able to schedule their entire meeting via Outlook or Lotus Notes in just 3-4 simple steps. After a quick download and upload of their private rooms they will be able to see live availability of both their private rooms and more than 1,000 public rooms, along with the availability of the people they are inviting.

Larry Roher, CEO of myVRM said, "We are very excited to add the Whygo network and service of public video conferencing rooms to our scheduling platform. This gives new and existing users a huge added value in using the myVRM Outlook plug-in or Lotus Notes integration for their room scheduling."
