Email tag wastes 75 minutes a week.
No one likes to play email tag. You know, those quick emails you send back and forth to schedule a meeting with someone whose calendar you can’t see. The conversation often goes something like this:
This process can take 30 minutes, 2-3 times a week, and can sometimes span several days. That’s around 75 minutes a week (or 65 hours a year) that you spend scheduling meetings, which comes out to an average of $1,750 per employee per year.
Now you can schedule meetings directly within Outlook.
Using the Outlook add-in available with NeedToMeet Premium, you can see who’s available when—right within Outlook. So you can schedule meetings with external folks in less than 5 minutes (per our user tests). That’s nearly 6 times faster than passing emails back and forth. It’s also 3 times faster than other online tools that don’t let you sync and view calendars for external contacts in Outlook.
Send a link to your public calendar.
If your external colleagues don’t have the NeedToMeet add-in installed (or aren’t on Outlook), you can still send them a link to your online calendar and let them pick a time that works.
NeedToMeet Premium is only $19/user per year. We also offer a 14-day free trial
(no credit card required). Try it and then pop over to our ideas forum
