WALTHAM, Mass. & ANN ARBOR, Mich. --(Business Wire)-- April 5, 2005 --

Meeting Maker, Inc.'s Resource Scheduler Supports Dynamic Messaging Directly to Gyricon SyncroSign(TM) Wireless eSignage Product Line

Meeting Maker, Inc., a leader in collaborative time management software solutions, and Gyricon LLC, creator of innovative SmartPaper(TM) electronic media-based display technologies today announced they have formed a strategic partnership to deliver scheduling information to electronic paper-based signage. Resource Scheduler, Meeting Maker, Inc.'s leading web-based resource management solution, now seamlessly integrates with Gyricon's award-winning electronic paper-based SyncroSigns to display and distribute actual meeting space location information. Resource Scheduler will also support Gyricon's newly announced SyncroSign Messenger, which will be available in June.

Resource Scheduler is the leading resource management solution for organizations and institutions of any size to effectively manage, utilize and schedule shared resources. Resource Scheduler eliminates double-bookings by providing users with a simple, self-service resource scheduling solution that seamlessly integrates with existing software infrastructure, making it ideal for IT to adopt and administer.

"We will now have the ability to provide our customers with a simple and economical way to display meeting information at the actual meeting location," said Jeffrey Roof, director of product management for Meeting Maker, Inc. "The fact that Gyricon SyncroSign displays are battery-powered, WiFi-enabled, and affordable means that customers now have a cost-effective solution that integrates scheduling software and eSignage."

SyncroSign(TM) displays are battery-powered WiFi (80211.b) network eSigns incorporating SmartPaper(TM), Gyricon's patented electronic paper technology. SmartPaper, a reusable monochromatic display material, is electrically writeable and erasable, and requires power only when information changes. The SyncroSign display products offer an easy and affordable solution to wirelessly convey information about events, conference center scheduling, room changes and available services.

"We are excited to be partnering with Meeting Maker, Inc., the market leader of collaborative time-management scheduling and calendaring solutions," said Will Anderson, director of product marketing for Gyricon, LLC. "Through our combined solutions, we will help customers reduce the time and expense associated with manually posting information outside meeting spaces," added Anderson.

The Meeting Maker/Gyricon dynamic messaging collaboration will be demonstrated at the upcoming Meeting Maker, Inc. 2005 Solutions Conference on May 23 - 27, 2005 at the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa in Tucson, Arizona. Detailed conference information, conference registration and resort accommodations are available online at
