Montreal, QC (Vocus) September 16, 2010
Tungle Corp., the company that is revolutionizing the scheduling and calendar industry, today announced its partnership with Jive Software. Jive is the world’s largest and fastest growing independent Social Business Software company. Jive’s platform integrates the best features of collaboration software, community software, social networking software, and social media monitoring tools to extend a layer of social capabilities across every level of an enterprise.
Jive announced its upcoming Jive Apps Market in June of this year. Today the company announced “the most innovative cloud-based developers have committed to developing applications for the Jive Market.” Tungle is one of four companies to be showcased during the opening keynote presentation at this month’s JiveWorld10 conference.
“Tungle and Jive share a vision of efficient and simple collaboration for business professionals through breaking down the barriers of the status quo,” said Marc. “We’re proud to be teaming up with Jive, and excited to bring the power of quick and easy scheduling to Jive customers.”
“In anticipation of the launch of the Jive Apps Market, we looked for companies that exhibit a spirit of innovation and have demonstrated product leadership,” said Robin Bordoli, VP of Product Management at Jive Software. “The scheduling application that Tungle.me has built is a clear example of forward thinking in action. We’re excited to have them on board and we look forward to partnering together.”
Tungle.me, the company’s flagship product, allows professionals to easily schedule meetings and share availability inside or outside their organization, regardless of calendar type, and without requiring others to sign up. The application is free and connects to existing calendars, allowing professionals to enhance the functionality of the environment they’re already familiar with. Supported calendars include Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal, Entourage for Mac, Lotus Notes, BlackBerry, Yahoo, Windows Live and others.
The Tungle app for Jive is scheduled to be released Q1 2011.
Tungle Corp.’s Tungle.me makes scheduling meetings easy – across organizations, calendar systems and time zones – by eliminating the multiple emails, phone calls and double bookings that typically come with finding a time to meet. Tungle.me synchronizes with leading online calendar systems including Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal, Entourage for Mac, Lotus Notes, Windows Live and Yahoo! and does not require visitors to sign in or register to schedule meetings. Tungle.me supports scheduling on-the-go with Tungle.me for iPhone and BlackBerry.
Founded in 2006, the Montreal-based company is venture-backed by investors Commonwealth Ventures, JLA Ventures and Desjardins Capital.
