One of the most frustrating things is trying to schedule appointments with multiple people. It usually starts with a phone call or an email. Let’s meet, and oh let’s get Bill in on this too. Countless emails whiz through the digital world and follow up phone calls to verify that Bob is available this time, and you’re available that time too. ”No, that doesn’t work for me. How about next Friday?” ”Okay, but I’ll have to call Bob back to confirm that’s good with him too.
Wouldn’t it be nice to say goodbye to all that hassle? You can, thanks to a new company and a service they offer called Tungle. There are other similar services out there, but what I really like about Tungle is that the other person DOES NOT have to create a Tungle account if they don’t want to. They can schedule an appointment with you via Tungle or you can initiate an appointment with them whether they use the service or not. Cool, useable technology that works regardless of whether or not the other party adopts it.
Here’s their CEO describing the company and service:
And for all you LinkedIn fanatics out there, Tungle has tapped into the LI API so when you respond to meeting invites you can see if that person is on LinkedIn, click the icon, and view their profile. Very cool indeed.
Did I mention it’s free? Get started by creating your own Tungle account. Or better yet, Tungle Me and we’ll talk about implementing social media in your business.
