A typical higher education campus has many unique entities, each with its own physical space and other resources, and often with its own processes for managing them. But from the Student Center to Event Services to the Athletic Department and everything in between, the goals are essentially the same.

  • Coordinate the use of rooms and
    resources efficiently
  • Improve communication among
    team members and with customers
  • Streamline the approval process
  • Manage pricing and billing effectively
  • Provide an exceptional customer experience

Meet these objectives and everyone is happy. Fall short, and everyone’s stress level rises.

6 Signs You’re Using Outdated Scheduling Software (and It's Time to Move On)

Too often in higher education, groups are required to manage their meetings and events using outdated, legacy software. If you’re in that situation, you may recognize some of these telltale signs that it’s time to consider a new solution:

1

Your current system is cumbersome and difficult to use, so you’re not fully utilizing it.

2

You can't access the schedule of events from a tablet or phone.

3

It’s difficult to get new users up to speed, so there’s a lag in them becoming productive.

4

Customers are complaining that your department is hard to deal with when scheduling an event.

5

Getting helpful, timely support from the software company is next to impossible.

6

You’re worried that soon your system won’t be supported anymore.

And, when you start searching for a new, cloud-based system, you can’t find one that’s affordable.
The good news is that all of these issues can be addressed with the right scheduling solution!

New Thinking in Event Management From an Industry Pioneer

Mazévo Founder Dean Evans designed one of the first scheduling solutions for higher education in 1986. It revolutionized the way meetings and events were managed and was adopted by thousands of organizations of all kinds around the world.

After stepping away from the scheduling industry for a while to enjoy some time with his family, Dean saw that today’s systems have become unwieldy conglomerations of complex functions “bolted on” to outdated chassis from decades ago. And, he knew scheduling professionals deserved better.

Joining forces with scheduling software veterans like Mazévo Co-Founder and VP of Sales Bryan Peck, Dean launched the company to, once again, transform the industry using the latest technology to produce a lean, powerful, intuitive, and cost-effective scheduling solution.
