SkedgeMe (SkedgeMe.com) – the cloud-based scheduling tool that adds new intelligence to the age-old calendar – today introduces Group Events, a new functionality set that enables organizations of all sizes to plan and manage multi-attendee events online. Group Events is perfect for managing:
- Seminars and workshops
- Multi-class courses
- Training sessions
- Corporate events such as blood drives, flu shots, or volunteer events
- Computer lab reservations
Group Events integrates seamlessly with SkedgeMe’s Individual Appointment capabilities to make any type of scheduling easy for organizers and participants. As with SkedgeMe’s Individual Appointments, participants can self-schedule online via any web browser and organizers have a full suite of tools to manage the events. Organizers can:
- Create a single or recurring Group Event
- Configure events such that attendees can sign up for the whole series of events at once (like a course) or individual sessions (like an exercise class)
- Define a maximum capacity, location, and price of each event
- Book one or more staff and/or resources (rooms, equipment) for the event
“Group Events is a key addition to the SkedgeMe repertoire of ‘smart’ calendar tools, and our users will find real value in being able to schedule multiple variables at once,” said Richard Ruben, co-founder of SkedgeMe. “Good startups benefit from the feedback of their early customers, and Group Events was designed specifically based on the feedback of our clientele.”
SkedgeMe streamlines the booking process by allowing customers to self-book online 24 hours a day. The service provides robust customer analytics and CRM functionality, enabling businesses to understand the behavior and preferences of customers in real-time. SkedgeMe’s automatic reminder system reminds staff and participants about upcoming events and helps minimize no-shows. Customer booking via the SkedgeMe widget can be implemented on a client website in minutes. The application is also accessible via iPhone and Android apps. For more information, visit SkedgeMe.com.
