SimplyBook.me launching a competing online solution

SimplyBook.me, a popular scheduling solution, launches a competing solution in the meeting space, SimplyMeet.me.

Release Date: 4/11/2021



SimplyBook.me has launched SimplyMeet.me today, providing an alternative to the well-known scheduling service currently available from the same company, ensuring that users can get the right scheduling solution for their needs. Although SimplyBook.me is a highly flexible and extensive solution and can service the meeting scheduling market, some users wanted and needed a more straightforward solution to solve their meeting scheduling needs.


[Quote - Ingvar Gudmundsson Founder of SimplyBook.me]

"We're signing up over 10,000 new companies every month, but we noticed that a certain number decided not to stay with us, and many of those started using some of the simpler, less expensive solutions on the market. We now want to address this issue and offer an extremely easy to set-up meeting scheduler at an excellent price. We are confident that many of the users trying our solution are actually looking for SimplyMeet.me, which we can now offer them."


Understanding that SimplyBook.me is not the perfect option for servicing the more simplistic meeting appointment market, the team decided to launch a simpler solution to cater to those needs. Building a new solution from scratch was not a good option, and after scouring the market for opportunities, SimplyBook.me acquired the CalDav based Harmonizely solution.


The Harmonizely brand name was considered a drawback on the future evolution of the product and not in line with SimplyBook.me brand. So we are launching the new solution as SimplyMeet.me, a brand that fits well into the "Simply[ ].me" family.


SimplyMeet.me is now available as an efficient solution for meeting scheduling, primarily targeted at users who don't require several interconnected resources, complex business logic, and a multitude of booking channels for their business. It allows anyone to connect their personal and work calendars easily and lets people effortlessly schedule one-on-one and team meetings. It's the ideal solution for any type of meeting and large companies with significant internal conference requirements from HR to Sales and Marketing.


Integration with multiple external calendars and the specific compatibility with CalDAV calendars makes SimplyMeet.me highly flexible for use with a broad array of calendars. Additionally, the number of video calling platforms that integrate seamlessly with the meeting scheduler makes it an ideal candidate for remote consultations and collaborations. It is an essential tool for those who schedule their time efficiently and want something simple, easy to use, and clean looking.


[Quote Rut Steinsen - CEO of SimplyBook.me ltd]

"While some in the team initially thought it could be risky to offer a competing solution at a lower price and that this could cause us to cannibalise our existing users, we are now all fully aligned and excited about the launch of SimplyMeet.me. We are convinced that by offering both SimplyBook.me and SimplyMeet.me, a large portion of our new users will find the right solution for their needs, which in the end is mutually beneficial."


The final judgment on whether the new SimplyMeet.me solution will cater to SimplyBook.me users or not will become known in the weeks and months ahead.
