TimeBridge's nomination comes after a year of significant growth and continued innovation in providing tools to enable productivity and collaboration. During the past year, TimeBridge has grown from 30,000 to well over 300,000 users, making it by far the largest online scheduling application. TimeBridge's one-step scheduling is the most efficient way to schedule meetings with large groups or individuals across time zones, calendaring systems and companies, drastically reducing the traditional back and forth of scheduling. TimeBridge integrates directly with Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal, and facilitates the easy scheduling of meetings with availability sharing, automated meeting negotiation, calendar updates, meeting notifications and reminders. Additionally, TimeBridge Groups enables work teams to share their availability with each other as a group to and make finding a time to get together even easier.
TimeBridge also offers collaboration tools to provide continued support and facilitate productivity once the meeting is scheduled. This year, TimeBridge introduced the Daily Brief—a log of the next day's appointments and activities sent to the user's inbox the evening before so that he or she is prepared and in control of their schedule for the day ahead. Additionally, TimeBridge provides free conference calling and an affordable Web Conferencing service that is seamlessly integrated into the scheduling process, making it even easier for users to work together regardless of location.
"The Webware 100 represents the best of the best in new web innovation, and we're proud to be placed in that category for a second time," said Yori Nelken, founder and CEO of TimeBridge. "In the past year, we've experienced explosive growth as now more than 300,000 users and 16,000 businesses have realized how easy and useful it is to integrate TimeBridge into their day-to-day work."
TimeBridge has created the first Personal Scheduling Assistant to give busy professionals a faster, more efficient way to schedule their time. TimeBridge's one-step scheduling is the most efficient way to schedule meetings with large groups or individuals across time zones, calendaring systems and companies. TimeBridge allows users to easily schedule meetings, share their availability with others, and connect directly with calendars including Outlook, Google Calendar and Apple iCal. While online calendars help users track their time, TimeBridge facilitates the social, and often complex process of getting busy people together-in person, on the phone or online.
