Eva could end dependence on “phone trees”.

Nothing wreaks greater havoc on a restaurant then re-arranging server shifts at the last minute, yet this happens hundreds of times a day in restaurants all over the country

Bad weather forces a last-minute change in a Little League team’s practice time and place; three food servers call in sick sending a frantic restaurant manager to find replacements; a political campaign manager needs to re-deploy volunteers to a different venue than scheduled.

Harried volunteers, small business owners, and managers plow grimly through phone lists each day to notify or re-schedule people because of last-minute unforeseen changes.

The arrival of Eva – the latest in web-based messaging services – just might signal the end of the phone tree.

In less time then it takes to find a phone list and start dialing, Eva simultaneously calls, e-mails, or sends an SMS message to the entire list with your question or message. Alternatively, Eva can contact a list sequentially and find the first person that answers “yes” to a specific question. Developed by Eventuality, a Maryland-based communication services company, Eva saves time and money by making it easy to communicate with one or a thousand people in just a few short steps.

Customers include small business owners, property management companies, and community sports leagues. Eva is a virtual assistant to people who routinely deal with scheduling and messaging tasks to groups, according to Scott Studer, company director and chief technology officer.

“Nothing wreaks greater havoc on a restaurant then re-arranging server shifts at the last minute, yet this happens hundreds of times a day in restaurants all over the country,” noted Studer. “Eva takes a situation that often takes hours to resolve and reduces it to a five-minute task. You find similar scenarios in sports leagues where volunteer coaches must rely on phone trees or spend hours on the phone to get the word out about changes in game times or locations. Eva changes all that.”

Busy youth basketball and football coach Thomas A. Rozylowicz knows first-hand the benefits of Eva. “Any coach dealing with a roster of young athletes knows that last minute changes to schedules or lineups can happen because of the weather or illness. For the coach, this usually means hours on the phone ensuring everyone gets the message; something I don’t enjoy doing at the end of the day,” said Rozylowicz. “Eva makes a marked difference in team communication and keeps everyone – players, coaches and parents – up to date."

Customers can sign up for a free Eva trial account at eventuality.com. Standard accounts start at $9.99 a month and are renewable monthly.
