A bit of bad news coming out today. Meeting management tool ikordo has closed up shop. The message on their site reads, "We regret to inform you that the ikordo service has been withdrawn indefinitely. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that used the service. Please direct all enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org"
I reviewed the service back in July and thought it had good potential. It humanized meeting planning and it’s disappointing to see it go. I chatted several times with VP George Waidell and was impressed with his vision for the product.
Mike Butcher notes, "although lots of people have difficulty arranging meetings, especially between three or more people, most web apps tend to be beaten by people just picking up the phone. Getting adoption for a new service outside the enterprise is probably pretty damn hard."
This morning I have been testing a new meeting management tool called ikordo. I am very impressed with what I have seen so far. ikordo is a "smart" meeting planner in that you give it a time/day range, tell it whom to invite and it does the legwork to figure out what time your meeting will work.
