/PRNewswire/ --
67% of business travellers surveyed said they welcomed the opportunity to
network with new people in their free time, but only 2% of those questioned
actually do. Meetworx aims to address this gap via a simple mobile app that
allows business travellers to make contact with other professionals nearby to
make the most of precious free time & build valuable new contacts.
Social business networking mobile app, Meetworx, today released the findings
of their recent survey into business travel habits. The survey found that whilst
over two thirds of those questioned welcomed the opportunity to meet and
network with new people in their spare time; only a fraction of those questioned
actually did.
Commenting on the findings, Meetworx founder Stuart Reed said "There is
clearly a desire for professionals to grow their network whilst away on business,
but there are few solutions that facilitate this in an efficient way. We believe
Meetworx is the ideally placed to bridge this gap, as it provides a very simple
mobile app allowing professionals to quickly find and connect with others whilst
away on business."
Addressing a need
Meetworx is a proximity aware mobile app available on Android devices. It
responds to a growing trend of modern business travellers that can find
themselves with free time in a new city without any friends or associates
nearby. Many business travellers are likely to find themselves in a similar
situation without the mechanism to easily meet others; losing the opportunity to
make new professional contacts and to eliminate the boredom that can often
be associated with free-time on business travel.
Using location based technology; Meetworx allows the users to discover other
Meetworx users in their immediate area. Using the clever "slider" bar; users
can define their search area anywhere from 0 to 12km to find others in their
vicinity. Additionally, users can choose when they appear online to others and
mobile phone numbers are not shared nor displayed - leaving the user in
complete control of the information they choose to share with others at all
times.
Speaking about the growing trend, Stuart said "How many times have you been
away on business sitting alone in the hotel bar, looking round at countless
others that are also sitting alone and thinking it seems crazy we are not talking?
You could be missing out on some really great professional connections or
simply a good conversation over a drink in your free time. Meetworx makes it
easy to make that initial contact - the smartphone app allows you to identify
other users in the area and to make contact via IM."
Talking about the user experience of Meetworx, Stuart further commented
"Adding a status update along with industry focus, specialism and even a photo
via the personal profile allows others to find you quickly; and for you to swiftly
identify business networking contacts that are most relevant. Using the in-app
IM functionality makes it easy to make contact - helping you build your
professional network and finding potential business opportunities."
Boosting productivity at work
The Meetworx survey into business travel habits also found that almost 80% of
those questioned said they may be more productive at work if they have been
able to interact with others in their spare time, suggesting that there could be
gains for both employer and employee through networking whilst away on
business.

travellers to find people to network with when away on business; or to make
