Offers fast, easy, customizable, online date-picking and calendaring

Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) February 29, 2005—Zapatec, Inc., a Javascript tools development company, announced today the Zapatec Javascript Calendar, designed to give webmasters an easy, customizable, feature-rich calendar that offers cross--browser compatibility. The web-based calendar makes it easy for customers to pick dates and times by ensuring that only valid data is available and chosen. The Javascript Calendar package includes a Wizard, making it easy for webmasters to choose from the wide array of available options, including languages, themes, and date ranges.

Keston Woodyatt, owner of Focallength Photography, says, “With the Zapatec Javascript Calendar I can mark the dates where I’m booked, and as a result, customers can go on the web and easily see the dates I'm available to work their weddings. No headaches, no error-messages – It’s a huge help in booking my wedding planning appointments.”

“The current generation of Javascript calendars forces customers to work too hard and lets them make too many mistakes, resulting in lost opportunities,” says Dror Matalon, president of Zapatec. “Our calendar is not only intuitive and flexible, but also configurable so that users can't choose dates that are improper to a specific application. For example, if you're planning a trip, you cannot choose an arrival date that is later than the departure date, or a departure date that's earlier than today.”
