Another month, another great new client at EventMAP HQ. And this project is particularly interesting as it neatly showcases Optime Scheduling Cloud’s ability to make light work of timetabling, room booking and optimisation across distributed campuses.
Our new client is dBs Music – they run courses up to Masters level across three campuses in the UK and Germany for students planning careers in music production, live sound, game audio, music composition and sound for film and television. dBs had previously been using a legacy timetabling system that didn’t integrate at all with their registry system and being a desktop-based system, made centralised management of timetabling largely impossible.
After an evaluation period, they’ve now licensed OSC Timetabler and Booker and plan to integrate fully with their other existing systems via our flexible API. Benefitting from an intuitive, modern, cloud-based system to take care of their entire timetabling requirements, they’ll also be using Booker to allow students to book recording studio space outside of their timetables.
dBs are currently undertaking a short period of scenario planning and test scheduling during this academic year to optimise their room usage, and they plan to roll Timetabler and Booker fully for the 19/20 school year. They’re also planning to integrate both OSC apps with their own student information systems to give staff and students a completely unified user experience. So, with only a little input from EventMAP’s development team, they’ll have been able to deploy and customise their OSC apps within an incredibly short timeframe.
Matt Bernard, Head of Operations at dBs Music commented: “After contacting EventMAP we were issued with trial accounts for both Timetabler and Booker products, the development team were very responsive and assisted Jen in our student support team to run some trial schedules. They listened to feedback and incorporated suggestions into updates. Our experience with EventMAP was excellent – there was no pressure from sales teams, which allowed us to guarantee the system could satisfy our criteria.”
