Scheduling/resource-management software available through GSA contract
With the addition of PeopleCube to York Telecom’s General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule GS-35F-0493K, more than 100 federal agencies and organizations will have the ability to purchase the software through a streamlined procurement vehicle.
PeopleCube’s software will help agencies conserve energy, reduce energy costs, lower their carbon footprint and maximize use of shared resources and assets, according to the two companies.
“The combination of Resource Scheduler and York Telecom’s Managed Collaboration Services will allow clients to proactively manage and schedule all of their meeting-technology resources, such as audio and video conferencing, meeting support and portable AV technology,” said Ken Scaturro, senior vice president of global sales and business development at York Telecom.
End-users will find the fully integrated scheduling experience efficient and easy to use, Scaturro asserted, while technology managers will be attracted to the rich reporting and administrative tools and the finance team will be “thrilled” by the increased ROI on meeting technology assets.
The integration of Resource Scheduler creates an affordable energy-management solution for government institutions and enterprises that manage multiple, geographically dispersed facilities as well as single-location organizations, according to the two companies. Resource Scheduler is a Web-based workspace, resource and energy-management product that allows users to quickly and easily schedule shared resources and energy consumption with just a few clicks.
“Given the rising social and economic pressures to go green, energy conservation is no longer a choice for organizations but rather a mandate,” PeopleCube President and CEO John Anderson said. “Because the cost of energy continues to rise, managing energy consumption to reduce costs is a necessity.”
