Have you ever tried creating a Facebook group or mass e-mail to discuss and plan an upcoming event? Whether you’re planning a surprise birthday party or a large corporate gathering, you probably already know that collaborative scheduling can be extremely time-consuming and exhausting. If you’re the one organizing it you know there are major problems when it comes to finding the right time, right place and managing all the responses.

It’s December, and it’s time to get the party started. Your next get-together could be put together a lot more smoothly with LetsMeetAtJoes. This is a SaaS (Software as a Service) or a “hosted” solution that can link up all your friends and family to let your holiday party come together seamlessly.
We all know how it goes. You’re thinking to yourself how great it would be to get all the family together at your brother’s house (with the nice game room, big screen TV, etc.) maybe the weekend before Christmas. So you call your mom who insists your gathering be at her house on Christmas day as to not upset tradition.

We all know how hard it is to coordinate schedules with a person who is so busy he just seems to never sleep. But it can be just as challenging to try to get a group of, say, three or four people together at the same place, on the same date, at the same time – even if these people are your close family. Now consider trying to coordinate a corporate sized get-together involving hundreds of people. All of these situations call for a common tool that can help you coordinate schedules. LetsMeetAtJoes (LMAJ) from eoMediaGroup is going to be that tool.
There are plenty of software engineers with great ideas and platforms to sell to customers who would use them. But that means the stakes are high for startup SaaS (Software as a Service) companies. Here are some tips for success.
1. Hold Leaders Accountable.It’s important for a leader to understand the SaaS as a relationship-building business rather than simply a piece of software. The leader then needs to understand what the life cycle of the business will look like. How the company’s metrics will evolve and how he or she can instill responsibility along the way for those metrics.2. Know What Your Customer Want. To be successful, the SaaS needs to really understand what their customer wants. As a product that’s quickly developed and delivered to the customer, it also has high competition with other startups and brand names like Amazon.com or Google.

Whether or not you’re a skydiver you’ve probably read about 43-year-old Austrian Felix Baumgartner’s record breaking skydive from a capsule 128,100 feet above the Earth. You probably already know that this 24-mile jump from the stratosphere meant he fell faster than the speed of sound, at 833.9 mph or Mach 1.24, and broke the sound barrier wearing only a space suit. And you’re probably chuckling to yourself about his choice of a landing site; where else but Roswell, New Mexico, a popular Earth destination for all our visitors from space.

Paul, Sarah, Jose, and Tatiana are trying to schedule a time to go to a movie. The movie theater shows the movie at 4:00, 6:30, and 9:00 Monday through Friday. Sarah has Yoga Tuesday and Thursday all night. Two people can only do a matinee (4:00) on a weekday. Sarah can do any day, but Friday and Wednesday. And— EEK!
Let me stop you there, because I’m sure this is the kind of problem you thought you were done with when you said farewell to elementary school. But organizing scheduling has become a real world problem.
