Meeting Manager Edition Differences


Meeting Manager Standard

The standard edition of Meeting Manager uses a file-sharing database. This edition is ideal for small numbers of users in a Windows environment.

Pros

  • Meeting data can be shared over a network.
  • Easy to install.
  • Inexpensive.
  • Simple intuitive graphical interface.


Cons

  • More likely to require occasional database re-indexing maintenance in an unstable environment. An unstable environment is one in which a machine crashes or is powered off improperly.
  • Poor performance with many (over 10) people on at one time.
  • Can only be used on Windows PCs.
  • Includes Data Manager.

Meeting Manager Client-server

The client/server edition of Meeting Manager is well-suited for small or large numbers of simultaneous users on Windows PCs who may need to share schedule data over an intranet or the Internet. Meeting Manager C/S has all the features of Meeting Manager Standard except that data cannot be backed up and restored from the client software. Meeting Manager C/S is a true client/server implementation in that all database access takes place only on the server. Additionally, the data is accessed over a TCP/IP connection. This means you can have the server running in Montana and have a client with an open Internet connection running in China sharing calendar data like it was in Montana.

Pros

  • Meeting data can be shared over an intranet or even the Internet.
  • Very little chance of requiring database re-indexing maintenance.
  • Good performance with many people on at one time.
  • Simple intuitive graphical interface.
  • Includes Data Manager.


Cons

  • Can only be used on Windows PCs.
  • Does not have the Sites feature that the Standard edition has. (Though a similar effect can be achieved using the Categories feature.)
  • Cannot back up and restore data from the client software.
  • Cannot directly connect to other database servers such as MS SQL Server or MySQL.


Meeting Manager Enterprise

Meeting Manager Enterprise is ideal for large numbers of users on at one time in a Windows environment who need to access calendar data over the intranet or Internet. Meeting Manager Enterprise has all the features of the Client/Server edition except that there is no Data Manager in the client software to manage database table data. The table data can only be directly accessed and changed in the database server application. The biggest benefit of Meeting Manager Enterprise over the Client/Server edition is that Meeting Manager Enterprise is scalable. You can start with a small number of users accessing a single database server. Over time you can add more and more users. If performance starts to erode you can simply use your database server's load balancing features to improve performance. Using the advanced features of database servers, you can accommodate an unlimited number of people.

Pros

  • Meeting data can be accessed over an intranet or even the Internet.
  • Data can be stored on your choice of several database servers, including MS SQL Server and MySQL.
  • Very little chance of requiring database re-indexing maintenance.
  • Good performance with many people on at one time.
  • Simple intuitive graphical interface.


Cons

  • Can only be used on Windows PCs.
  • Must use and maintain an external database server, such as MS SQL Server and MySQL.
  • The client software does not have a Data Manager.


Meeting Manager Web

You can access Meeting Manager Web from a web browser on virtually any platform. The web edition of Meeting Manager is well-suited for small or large numbers of simultaneous users who need to share meeting schedule data over the intranet or the Internet. Due to the limitations of HTML not all the features of the Meeting Manager Windows editions are in the web edition.  For example, the Data Manager in Meeting Manager Web is not as easy to use, resource bookings cannot be copied and pasted and there is no sites feature.

Pros

  • Meeting data can be shared over the intranet or even the Internet.
  • Very little chance of requiring database re-indexing maintenance.
  • Good performance with many people on at one time.
  • Client can run in any web browser.


Cons

  • Less functional Html interface.
  • Must run the server software on a Windows-based PC.
  • Cannot change or create reports.
  • Cannot directly connect to other database servers, such as MySQL or MS SQL Server.

"I am sending this note to provide feedback on your value added product. I spent several hours on researching software for managing meeting rooms. I downloaded free trials of four different products and used them for 2 week durations. For sometimes 3 times the price all of these products fell significantly short of the benefits we have realized using CyberMatrix Meeting Manager. To date this tool has been used, with virtually no training, by our manufacturing Process Teams and Management for about 9 months with zero complaints and many compliments. The features are great and some can be directly related to providing effective meetings. Finally, any questions we had regarding the product were immediately answered with easy to understand explanations. I guess the ultimate compliment of any product is saying you would actually pay twice the amount of the current selling price, and for the value we have received, I would!"
