BY LIBRARIES, FOR LIBRARIES

This modern, all-in-one calendar platform was built to help members better engage with their library's exciting selection of community events. It was originally created by Eastern Regional Libraries and is commercially available to all Australian libraries via a partnership with Cloud612. Its features were carefully crafted to enable members to fully manage their own experience, so as many components as possible have been automated.

Much care went into developing a platform that's powerful, pretty and a pleasure to use. There's a comprehensive management backend that allows staff to perform an array of tasks, as well as add events and customise the integration. We believe that, in addition to item loans, events are the heart of what will help libraries (and communities!) thrive in the years ahead. Traditionally there's been a great deal of friction in the events experience for both staff and members, and this calendar solution is designed to eliminate those blockers. Our partnership with Cloud612 creates the opportunity to deliver the calendar as a fully hosted SaaS platform that receives constant feature improvements.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

We'll host your Events Calendar in its very own Amazon Elastic Beanstalk environment in a region that's geographically close to you. For all the Aussie libraries out there, that's probably at Amazon's Asia Pacific Datacentre in Sydney. We'll work with your DNS provider to set up a gorgeous new subdomain especially for events, but if that's not possible we'll create a special one just for you. We'll also deliver event email notifications via Amazon's SES service, also from Sydney, and will completely handle bounces and similar email related tasks. Common emails include event reminders, cancellation notifications and requests for event feedback. Optionally, you can speak to us about sending email directly from your domain, it's totally up to you.
