Meetr™ Gives Companies and Employees a Fun, Easy Way to
Keep Tabs on Productivity


SARASOTA, Fla. – Two creative, Sarasota-based entrepreneurs announced the release of their iOS application, Meetr™ for iPhone™. Programmer Patrick Denney and Ringling College of Art and Design graduate 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 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 anorganization’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!

Elasmar, a 2004 graduate of 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.”   

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 For more information, please visit www.meetr-app.com.
