ATLANTA, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PGi (NYSE: PGI), the world's largest dedicated provider of collaboration software and services, is excited to announce that its innovative smart calendar app, iMeet Agenday, won the first-ever Appy Award for Wearables at this year's MediaPost Appy Awards.
MediaPost's Appy Awards honor extraordinary applications on all platforms: mobile, social and web-based in a diverse range of categories.
iMeet Agenday is PGi's smartphone app that combines all of your calendars automatically so you can easily navigate a consolidated view of all your personal and professional activities. The app displays one easy-to-read daily schedule and, with one touch, lets you join online meetings, dial into conferences, call a group of people, send "running late" messages, get turn-by-turn driving directions and more. iMeet Agenday also allows you to automatically update Salesforce.com while on the go, letting sales professionals log sales calls and add contacts directly from the app.
The innovative iMeet Agenday smartwatch integration helps busy workers better manage their days—right on their wrists—with four unique features:
- Meetings Watchface: With a single glance, see when you have meetings and when you have free time, minimizing missed meetings and late attendance.
- Running Late: Send a message to meeting attendees if you're running behind—right from your smartwatch.
- Join Meeting: Quickly join online meetings or initiate a conference call by simply tapping a button on your watch.
- Weather Watchface: Displays the current time and weather conditions.
"On behalf of the incredibly talented developers, designers and thinkers at the PGi Innovation Lab, we are excited that iMeet Agenday is the first-ever Appy Award recipient in the new wearables category," said David Guthrie, PGi chief technology officer. "PGi is honored by the recognition and validation of our mission to deliver truly collaborative, productivity-boosting applications for the modern workforce."
In addition to its award-winning smart calendar app, PGi's expanding iMeet portfolio of unified communications and collaboration (UC&C) products includes all-in-one web, video and audio conferencing and webcasting. PGi recently announced the integration of iMeet into all popular video room systems and endpoints, extending the utility of an organization's video investments to any desktop or smart mobile device. In the coming months, iMeet will release several new innovations in online team workspaces, project management and sales acceleration.
