How difficult do you find the Scheduling Process?

How difficult do you find the scheduling process? How much of the technical mumbo jumbo do you not understand? Many end-users do not know the purpose of a bridge or an MCU nor do they care. They just want to quickly and easily schedule resources and want the system to be reliable. Today, I am writing for people who care about the user experience.

Scheduling a conference that utilizes an underlying technology should not be an overwhelming experience. Sometimes, the problem is that people that develop these systems are so technically advanced that they do not know to how explain the solution to us common users. When using a new tool, I sometimes hyperventilate at the avalanche of information; Between technical diagrams, product overviews and system requirements that come flooding in, I am sometimes wondering, do I know how to use this product and will this save me time and make me more efficient?

myVRM scheduling and workflow automation software can be complex on many levels. However, at the core of our design has been the idea that no matter how technologically sophisticated we became, if an ordinary user could not user our software in a simple and easy fashion then we would be missing our core audience. myVRM has always wanted to champion the user first.

Over the next few months, myVRM is going to explore, through a series of short entries on our social media outlets, the ease of scheduling through the myVRM scheduling solution for the ordinary user. You will be able to follow along with our posts on LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. Feel free to follow along with us @myVRM with #SchedulingSmart and most of all, ask questions or share your scheduling do’s and don’ts.

Hicksville, NY. – June 19, 2014 – myVRM, a leading supplier of scheduling and workflow automation software, today announced that their software, which includes modules that automatically schedule and launch calls, has been demonstrated to interoperate with the latest solutions from Polycom, Inc.

Video Conference Scheduling Software Now Easier to Use

Anyone who doubted the continued growth in video conferencing at the start of 2013 surely will look back on that prediction with serious regret. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) decision in September to invest in Polycom’s video conferencing hardware made it clear that even governmental organizations recognize the significant cost-savings, increased productivity and convenience that video conferencing offers.

However, video conferencing for all businesses and institutions, big and small, presents a host of challenges associated with the management of this new technology. To confront these challenges, NATO and Polycom partnered with myVRM, a leader in software scheduling solutions that was up to the task of integrating the needs of 28 member nations.

myVRM could provide the security and reliability that the organization responsible for the defense of half of the northern hemisphere demands. Video conferencing is supposed to be a business tool, but without the right assistance, even the best tool becomes a hindrance. Mark Escobar, a senior vice president at NATO, stated, “Combined with the (myVRM) scheduling system, the Polycom collaboration environment allows NATO to focus on the work at hand and not on the technology needed to do it.” myVRM is currently helping NATO and is positioned to help other businesses in a number of ways.

Ease of Use 

If video conferencing is going to play an ever larger part in our business environment it will be essential that the scheduling process be easy and accessible. myVRM’s scheduling platform is accessible by the myVRM Web portal, but also integrates with Lotus Notes, Microsoft Outlook and Google. Multiple platforms must also include the ability to schedule and participate in conferences from multiple types of devices. Laptops and desktops are a given, but iPads and tablets are also easily integrated into the myVRM scheduling solution.


The best scheduling software in the future will not just be reliable and easy to use from a laptop, desktop or tablet. myVRM believes that to be the best scheduling option, their software will have to be 100% portable and accessible at a moment’s notice. At myVRM, the future is here now. The myVRM multi-platform access to their scheduling software now includes all Android and iPhone smart devices. Opening up a laptop in an airport or connecting to a hotel network can take more time than scheduling the actual meeting. The business professional with five free minutes before a flight or at the close of the meeting can open the myVRM application from any Android or iPhone device and in a matter of minutes plan a meeting.

myVRM is leading a “meeting scheduling revolution” for managing all of your organizations in-person or audio/video/virtual meetings. Deployable, scalable and easily integrated into existing legacy systems of any size or industry, myVRM is an innovative, end-to-end solution to schedule, launch, monitor, manage and report on all of your business meetings

The Do’s and Don’ts of Meetings

We all know it, everyone hates meetings. No one wants to be in one, or be part of one. They aren’t organized nor efficient. Unfortunately, meetings have to continue to exist and for once it would be a good idea if they served a purpose. Meetings need to add value to our already busy lives, they need to inform us. They need to to be compelling, and informative.

Here are some tips to try to keep all your tasks in place for your next business meeting.


- Checking emails, and answering phone calls

- Multi-tasking – see how else myVRM can help

- Having side talk/personal conversations

Be / Do:

- Open minded and have open communication to avoid negative attitudes, and get the most ideas out.

- Have a (manager) keep the meeting organized in order to stay on task and follow the agenda to  help deliver the business meetings goal(s).

- Invite people pertinent to the meeting. The (manager) person in charge can send out an email to the rest of the employees about the meetings highlights.

Did you know 49% of workers believe unfocused meetings are the biggest waste of time? Putting meetings together wastes valuable time from your real objective – Communicating effectively, and having your issues resolved.

Having these tips set and in place for your next meeting can dramatically save time and make your meetings more effective. See how myVRM can help you accomplish these goals, and more here

Phil Marshman – New Managing Director to Expand myVRM’s Global Reach

Hicksville, NY November 18th 2013 – myVRM, the world’s premier scheduling software solution, names Phil Marshman as its Managing Director EMEA division.  Mr. Marshman, a 15 year video conferencing veteran, will maintain customer relations, while continuing to foster growth and oversee the company’s European operations.

Being part of a software company that has insight and a clear direction for the future of visual communications is important to Mr. Marshman, “myVRM has gone from strong to stronger since I first met them three years ago.  I consider them to be the best end-user conferencing scheduling solution in the world.  Their software transforms the way people interact in an effective and efficient manner.  When the opportunity to join their expanding European team presented itself, I jumped at the chance!”

Larry Roher, CEO of myVRM echoed Mr. Marshman’s excitement. “It’s great to have Phil on board.  His experience and understanding of the video conferencing industry makes him a fit for heading up our European operations.  Phil’s going to be a great asset to our team and I look forward to working with him for many years to come.”

myVRM Introduces the iControl Panel

Hicksville, NY October 15, 2013 – myVRM, the world’s leading scheduling software for in-person meeting rooms, video conferencing and telepresence facilities, announces a new extension to their robust scheduling solution. The iControl Panel is mounted outside the conference room and shows the schedule for that particular room, while giving users access to the myVRM scheduling platform to book new meetings system wide.

The iControl panel offers room status at a glance with color coded screens. The panel also allows the user to make new reservations, offers the ability to find an alternate room and because it runs on a standard iPad, the panel is cost effective.

With the convenience of still being able to schedule meetings from all of the other myVRM supported interfaces, iControl also provides users the added ability to book and utilize available meeting rooms at a moments notice. This is yet another way companies can ensure maximum room utilization and efficiency. Larry Roher, CEO of myVRM said, “We are excited to introduce a new device that makes it easy to coordinate an impromptu meeting and book an available meeting room on the spot. The iControl Panel is one of the ways that myVRM helps our customers maximize room utilization and efficiency.”
