audience on the same night, but also when entire departments take actions without considering the wider effect on other areas of the organization. The challenge is to deliver master calendars in a meaningful and productive way across your organization — for effective planning and executive-level snapshots, and to avoid calendar conflicts.
The Active Data Calendar suite is an all-in-one, centralized event repository and master calendar. From this single web-based calendar users can publish events, book facilities, and request resources. Active Data Calendar automatically pushes notification to those responsible for approving any aspect of an event. Senior management, staff, customers, and prospects can easily find and filter calendar views relevant to them — date-related information is published directly or automatically pulled from other applications. Users can RSVP and pay online, subscribe to RSS, request e-mail or text notifications, and add events to their personal calendar.
With Active Data Calendar you can meet the demand for proactive, yet streamlined, information retrieval. It can improve communications, increase efficiency and decisionmaking, and enhance productivity across your organization.
