It just solves the scheduling problems I need solved.

CHALLENGE

Startups work in a world of compressed timelines. Productivity tools are deeply embedded in small teams that understand technology and can't afford to waste any time arranging meetings or using inferior tools. 

SOLUTION

Allan uses Timebridge to handle his personal scheduling.

"Scheduling is a constant headache for everyone," says Allan. "Timebridge has a simple UI and just works the way we need it to for meetings I need to set up, and lets me share my calendar and let others schedule directly with me without additional emails."

RESULTS

Allan has fewer scheduling headaches than ever before.

"It just solves the scheduling problems I need solved," says Allan. "The best thing that can be said about any productivity tool is that it just solves your problem and disappears. Timebridge does that."
