The new Meetr™ iPhone app, programmed by Patrick Denney and designed by Ringling College graduate Miguel E. Elasmar, gives companies and employees an engaging, accurate and easy way to keep tabs on productivity while calculating the real cost of meetings.
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
Two Sarasota, Florida-based entrepreneurs today announced the release of their new iOS application, Meetr™. Programmer Patrick Denney and designer Miguel E. Elasmar created a unique application that helps companies and employees calculate the cost of time spent by groups or individuals in meetings, conference calls or other events – all in real time. Meetr helps answer the age-old question of “cost versus benefit,” with a humorous and entertaining twist. Meetr version 1.1.0 is now available for download for $1.99 at the iTunes App Store.
Meetr works by allowing the user to quickly input meeting attendees and their estimated salary, providing a running total of the cost of time spent during a particular event. Meetr automatically organizes all completed meetings under “history”, as it runs a grand total for all meetings completed within an organization’s life. The user can also save a specific group of people for reoccurring meetings. Meetr costs are displayed both in time and U.S. Dollars, and results can be shared in several different formats, including CSV files (compatible with most spreadsheets), graphs and even anonymously via Twitter.
Meetr designer Miguel Elasmar, a 2004 graduate of the Ringling College of Art and Design, referred to the user interface design as “an intuitive and beautiful approach to calculating data - influenced by 1980’s LCD gadgets.”
Using Meetr is simple - drop in participants salaries, fire up the app and then see in real-time just how much that meeting is really costing the organization in terms of wages. Many first-time Meetr users are shocked to see just how expensive a 'quick 15 minute meeting' is. Designed not just as a tracking tool, Meetr will spur productivity and provide an active motivator to keep meetings on-task and on-point.
Meetr version 1.1.0 is now available for download on the iTunes App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/meetr/id578167313?ls=1&mt=8
