Real World Finally Shakes Hands with the Digital - Online Meetings Extended to Face-to-Face Meetings
Meetin.gs and Seats2meet.com introduced a new ground-breaking service that changes the way meetings are organized.
Utrecht, The Netherlands (PRWEB) March 19, 2012
The mess of organizing meetings, changing agendas, materials, minutes, and taking care of follow-ups may soon be history. Seats2meet.com, the company that offers effortless reservation of meeting spaces across the Netherlands, has partnered with Meetin.gs to provide an additional “online meeting room” for their physical room reservations.
The partners challenge both digital and physical meeting providers with its unique integrated solution. No additional equipment is needed to use the service: once the meeting reservation has been made at Seats2meet.com, the online service will facilitate the logistics around organizing the meeting.
Handshaking and joint coffee drinking have value and are therefore a premium extension to online meetings. Therefore, organizing online meetings is free of charge, but businesses will need to pay to have a physical conference room for face-to-face discussions.
The service was demonstrated to professionals participating in the 3rd Space World Conference, which took place last Thursday in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
“We facilitate a dynamic co-working environment where our guests meet for collaboration, as well as to share their knowledge with others. This is where the boundaries between the physical and the virtual world have faded. This so-called Third Space does not only offer a unique experience, it goes one step further than existing solutions,” says Vincent Ariëns, the Community Manager of Seats2meet.com.
“Meeting culture is changing. People meet more and more online, giving business centers a run for their money. Meetin.gs is going beyond digital with this integrated solution by entering the physical space. We are providing a persistent meeting space for participants to tap into at any given time,” comments Teemu Arina, the CEO of Meetin.gs, the Finnish company behind the online service.
Companies’ IT departments support internal meetings online and face-to-face, but there is no proper solution for participants coming from different organizations. That is why this service is intended particularly for inter-organizational use, for meetings where people from different organizations meet each other.
