Our Tungle.me integration makes Rapportive even more awesome: you can now schedule meetings right from your inbox, without the endless back and forth of trying to find that one precious hour where fates, stars and calendars align.
Montréal, Canada (Vocus) September 7, 2010
Tungle Corp., the company that is revolutionizing the online scheduling and calendar industry, today announced its integration with Rapportive, to schedule meetings without ever having to leave your Gmail™ inbox. Rapportive, a Gmail plugin, pulls social data using a contact’s photo, email address and displays links to their profiles such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter in a sidebar within Gmail. A demo of how the integration works is available here.
The Tungle.me integration not only displays the Tungle.me page link for any contact with a Tungle.me profile, but also brings in a ‘schedule’ button. When you click on it, you get a pop-up that displays the user’s schedule and organizes meetings with them, without leaving Gmail.
Marc Gingras, founder and CEO of Tungle Corp said, “We’re witnessing a fragmented representation of our true availability due to the rise of multiple channels, social networks and calendars from which we can share plans. Tungle.me provides an easy solution to schedule meetings, no matter what platform you use. We built this API in such a way that with the click of a button, Rapportive users can use Tungle.me to schedule a meeting, and benefit from greater connectivity, productivity and functionality, all without directing users away from the application.”
Rapportive shows you everything about your contacts right inside your inbox - what people look like, where they're based, and what they do and record thoughts for later by leaving notes within profiles. Tungle.me helps users obtain true availability of contacts they want to connect with, and these tools come together to help you communicate personally and set up a meeting in a truly efficient way, all without signing out of your inbox.
Rahul Vohra, CEO and co-founder, Rapportive said, “Our Tungle.me integration makes Rapportive even more awesome: you can now schedule meetings right from your inbox, without the endless back and forth of trying to find that one precious hour where fates, stars and calendars align.”
