In First-to-Market Move, EMS Software Offers Google and Further Microsoft Outlook Integrations

Enterprise companies gain calendar options, efficiency while transforming into modern, digital workplaces 

DENVER, Colo. (January 16, 2018) - EMS Software™ today announced it has the industry’s first enterprise-class workplace connectivity platform to integrate with both Microsoft Outlook and Google’s G Suite calendars. In this latest product release, businesses gain the convenience of seamlessly scheduling and managing corporate workspaces, meetings, and events integrated with Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook, giving them access to more options for efficient and effective collaboration. Businesses are rapidly transforming their practices to accommodate the digital, mobile workforce, and access to more workplace integrations like those provided in this latest release from EMS are critical to this effort.

As adoption of cloud services continues to grow, more businesses are embracing these tools by integrating them into their overall corporate scheduling processes. EMS has been serving businesses with Microsoft Outlook integration since 2004, but with their December release, EMS now offers the most feature-rich and robust Outlook-based scheduling tool available on the market. And with the G Suite integration, businesses embracing either Google or Microsoft will benefit from the variety of industry-leading features.

Businesses using G Suite Integration will gain:

  • Convenient access to information from users’ Google Calendars to schedule, coordinate and manage meetings via mobile devices and web applications;
  • Simple attendee-availability viewing via the web or mobile app;
  • User-friendly access to meeting, hoteling, or conference space availability, allowing easy comparison of room and invitee availability; and,
  • Synchronized calendars with invitation details sent directly to the attendees’ Gmail and appointments automatically added to their Google Calendars.

“Employee expectations are rapidly changing throughout the workplace, and organizational transformations are happening at businesses across the world as they accommodate the mobile, remote, and hoteling workforce,” said Akshay Mahajan, vice president of product management, EMS Software. “As companies move to the cloud-based office environment, workspace management is moving beyond real estate and instead is focused on connecting people with the right spaces, resources, and technologies. Integration with technologies such as G Suite and Microsoft Exchange are critical to providing employees with a seamless work environment and experience, yet only EMS can deliver this choice to businesses across the world.”

In addition to G Suite integration, this new release of the EMS for Outlook gives customers the benefit of an updated interface, improved resolution conflict, increased personalization options, and a hassle-free auto-update feature. As a continuous release company, EMS plans to issue ongoing updates throughout 2018, including added features and functionality for G Suite and Microsoft, further enabling the Cloud Office environment and workplace of the future. EMS is currently leading the market in providing customer integrations with a wide variety of hardware and software technologies, giving companies more choices in workspace connectivity solutions such as video conferencing, HVAC, kiosks, room signs, surface hubs, and more.
