Get to Know Mazévo

Conference and Event Management Software

Mazévo (Mah-zay-voe)… it’s Greek for “gather” and it has a dual meaning for us. We’ve gathered a group of scheduling software experts with nearly a century of collective experience, and we’re crafting a unique solution college campuses, churches, and other organizations can use to simplify management of the gatherings that are at the heart of their operations.

Why us and why now? Having been in this industry for decades, we’re passionate about helping meeting and event scheduling departments utilize their space more effectively. And, frankly, too many organizations today are having to use scheduling systems that haven’t changed in any meaningful way in many years. Cosmetic changes? Sure. Innovations in fundamental structure and functionality? Few, if any.

A Fresh Perspective on Scheduling Challenges and Solutions

Schedulers deserve better. That’s why we’ve engineered Mazévo from the ground up to be a mobile-first, web-focused, secure cloud application that leverages the most advanced technology available.

It’s also why we'll be using input from a select group of scheduling experts who will be given early access to the system to shape everything from how it functions to how it looks. We’re giving Mazévo the powerful features and intuitive interface events professionals tell us they need to be efficient and effective in their work, and we’re confident you’ll feel the same way.

Co-Founder

Back in 1986, I created a first-if-its-kind room scheduling system and formed a company to sell, install, and support it.

Cleverly named, Dean Evans & Associates, Inc., the company grew steadily thanks to our focus on delivering feature-rich event management solutions backed by exceptional service. In time, DEA became an industry leader in the event management software space, serving the needs of schedulers in a variety of settings including higher education, corporate, religious, and government organizations.

In 2014, I sold the company and started traveling, thinking my days as a software developer and CEO were behind me. I visited incredible places like London, Budapest, Paris, Venice, Amsterdam, Santorini, and Barcelona. In the colder months, I would head to warm climates in destinations like Costa Rica, Mexico, Turks and Caicos, and St. Lucia. But while I felt fortunate to have time to relax in some truly spectacular settings after decades of long weeks and late nights, it seemed like something was missing.

Specifically, after more than five years away from software development, I realized I truly enjoy finding unique ways to leverage advanced technology to meet scheduling challenges. Now, I’m rested and ready to return to my scheduling roots. And, it feels like the perfect time since new cloud platforms and new tools for accessing them are enabling incredible innovation.

With today’s technology, it shouldn’t require weeks and weeks of installation and training to get a system operational. In fact, we’ve proved that it doesn’t. The new mobile-first, cloud-focused solution my team and I have designed can get an organization ready to start taking reservations in a matter of hours. Plus, we’re backing it with exceptional service and support – the kind that big companies these days seem to be unable or unwilling to provide.

A question we often got back in the day was, “Is there really a ‘Dean Evans’ behind the company?” The answer then as now is an enthusiastic, “Yes!” It’s good to be back.

In 1999, I joined a small, eight-person company called Dean Evans & Associates (DEA).

My first responsibility was performing software demonstrations for churches who were looking for a better way to schedule their space. Both the software and the fact that it was sent on something called a “CD” were very innovative at the time. Through the years at DEA, my responsibilities and my knowledge of the intricacies of space and resource management grew as I had the opportunity to work with companies in a wide range of industries, from higher education campuses to global corporations to all kinds of government entities.

By the time CEO Dean Evans sold the company in 2014, I was vice president of sales. I was also ready for a new challenge, and used the expertise I had developed in helping the company grow its sales and its bottom line to launch a successful business coaching and consulting firm. I enjoyed the tremendous variety as I shared insights with everyone from sole proprietors to companies of all kinds. In fact, I might still be consulting if it weren’t for a fateful lunch I had with Dean recently.

Catching up quickly turned into a conversation about the state of the scheduling software industry today. We both agreed that there hadn’t been any real innovation since Dean sold the company. That led to some “what if” questions. What if we created a powerful new mobile-first, web-focused scheduling solution using the latest technology? What if the system required zero investment in hardware or infrastructure? What if scheduling departments could get up and running with the product in a matter of hours? What if we backed the solution with the kind of service and support that had created such loyal customers at DEA?

Well, since that meeting, “what” has turned to “how,” and now Mazevo is offering a truly revolutionary product that is earning rave reviews from everyone who sees it.

Is it time to take your scheduling to new levels of efficiency and effectiveness? If so, we’d love to talk to you.
