TMN Sponsor of the Week: Julie Desk


Julie Desk is an AI-based virtual assistant that helps you save time and gain productivity by scheduling all your appointments via email. 

Executives spend about half a day a week on scheduling: going back-and-forth with emails to find a date that works for everyone,  sending the invitations, (and often rescheduling, canceling or postponing!)  Scheduling meetings and keeping your agenda up to date is a time-consuming task and not everyone can afford a personal assistant to do it. (Not to mention, most personal assistants would rather focus on other things). Now you can delegate this task to Julie, save time and gain productivity!

How? It is as simple as an email! Simply “CC” Julie in an email when you need to schedule a meeting, and she will start to converse with the recipient(s) until she finds a date that works for everyone. Then, she confirms the meeting and sends the invitations. She knows when and where to host it, because you’ve added all your preferences in the settings, such as:

  • Where to hold meetings
  • When to hold meetings
  • When NOT to hold meetings
  • and more…

Unexpected event come up?  Email Julie, and she will cancel or postpone all of your meetings, saving you numerous steps, and much time.

Julie is supervised by a team of executive supervisors, to avoid any risks of misunderstanding and guarantee the quality of her service.  Julie is the best of machine and human intelligence combined.

Julie is a very unique tool! She saves me hundreds of emails a week; not only saving me time, but also makes me so much more efficient.” said Jason McDonald Director at StringCan Interactive.
