NOTTINGHAM, England, April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Cronofy, a global innovator in business scheduling software, today announced the launch of the latest feature of their API, Conferencing Services. This feature gives software businesses and their users the ability to generate online meetings and conference dial-ins as a core function of Cronofy’s API service. When creating an event with the Cronofy API, software businesses can now add an additional attribute to any event to give the attendees the option to connect remotely.
Cronofy is partnering with 8×8, a California-based leading provider of cloud communications solutions including enterprise voice, meetings and messaging, to make this a zero configuration option for all parties. Links are generated and anyone can attend the meeting from their web browser. End-users with Google personal or G-Suite accounts will automatically generate a Google Meet link.
It’s important that this works for everyone, out of the box, but the Cronofy team appreciates that many companies have conference services that they prefer to use. In much the same way as end-users can link calendar services to their account, they can now authorise their conference service provider to ensure meetings are generated using the appropriate tool.
This feature is launching with support for Zoom, Microsoft Teams and GoTo conferences. Additional services will be added in response to customer demand.
