AskCody's year in review: Top 9 moments of 2015



As 2015 comes to an end, we want to take a look back at what a great 12 months it’s been for AskCody. We’ve had so many cool releases and great experiences this year, that it is difficult to decide which to chose for this post.
But these are the 9 highlights we chose from some of our favorite moments in 2015: 


Introducing the AskCody Service AEFS
We started the year by introducing a service for on-prem Exchange Servers called AskCody Exchange Forwarding Service. It’s a service that lets you run your Exchange server on-prem and still be able to integrate with AskCody in the cloud. 

Launched the all-new designed digital meeting room door sign Today+
Later, at the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, we launched the all-new Today+ digital meeting room door sign loaded with a bunch of new features like “confirm”, “extend”, and “end” meeting. Today+ is now able to release a meeting room inside Outlook if people don’t show up for meetings, to optimize and enhance utilization. (By the way check out the new gallery found here: Today+)

The AskCody WayFinder integrates seamlessly acroos all platforms
In June we showed off the new WayFinder at InfoComm in Orlando with seamless support across kiosks, smartphones, and websites. The WayFinder is being used at hospitals, conference centers, campuses and universities, office buildings and corporate headquarters, and ensures a nicer, more relaxed, and efficient atmosphere for everyone searching for directions to rooms or people while freeing up staff to do their job rather than showing people the way.

The WayFinder at Denmark's most beautiful festival
By the end of summer, we had a blast at “Smukfest” with more than 50,000 users of the WayFinder during the music festival. It was amazing!

A brand new app for outlook, the amazing AskCody RoomFinder
We’ve introduced the AskCody RoomFinder for Outlook and Office 365. Since launch, users have performed over 15,000 searches per month using the RoomFinder to search for meeting rooms inside Outlook. It’s perhaps the most powerful tool we’ve ever made.

Total new and improved features for the AskCody Welcome+
The Welcome+ visitor management tool has been updated with features like pre-registered guests, tools for customization, and a new backend where you can keep track of all guests throughout the day and manage your visitors with ease! More than 3,000 people check-in for meetings and visits each month using a Welcome+ check-in screen.

A new and better design for Meeting+
The interface of the Meeting+ Outlook app has been improved so users only get the information they need, at the time that they need it, guiding them through the order. Furthermore, the possibility of creating multiple deliveries as part of the same order in the same room at different times or even in different rooms, is now even easier and more intuitive.

Only one log-in for all your AskCody services
We’ve launched a unified login for all services, which means that you can manage ALL your AskCody solutions from the AskCody Manager backend.

We expanded our team with an experience designer
Cecilie is the newest member of the AskCody Team, with a background in experience design and as a concept designer at Bang & Olufsen, she will manage UX and Marketing at AskCody. We are glad to have her on board!


But most importantly, we have had the chance to meet and work with great people and great companies. 
We look forward to a new and great year with a lot of exciting projects in scope and a bunch of experiences to share. 



Happy New Year to you all

Much Love from
