Latest Release of the Popular WebEvent Event Calendar Solution Complies
with New Daylight Saving Time Standards
WALTHAM, MASS., March 1 /CNW/ - PeopleCube, the leader in calendaring,
scheduling and process management solutions, today announced the latest
release of WebEvent, the popular on-line event scheduling and calendaring
solution. Available as an on-demand or on-premise application, this new
version contains the necessary updates to comply with the revised dates of
Daylight Saving Time (DST) as mandated by the U.S. Energy Policy Act of 2005.
As a result of this release, any events scheduled in WebEvent during the
extended DST period will appear at the correct time regardless of the time
zone that the user is located in.
In an effort to conserve energy, the United States Congress passed the
Energy Policy Act in 2005 which mandated that Daylight Saving Time be extended
by four weeks beginning in March of 2007. As such, this new version of
WebEvent features the necessary enhancements to conform to the new dates of
Daylight Saving Time. As a result, all events scheduled in WebEvent during the
extended DST dates will be automatically adjusted to the correct time, thus
eliminating any event scheduling confusion or loss in productivity.
"WebEvent is used by thousands of schools, universities and businesses as
the primary means of communicating important event information to parents,
students and employees," said Ann Hamann, vice president of Marketing at
PeopleCube. Because WebEvent is used to let people know what events are
happening when, it is critical that these events are scheduled at the correct
time. We aggressively addressed the changes in Daylight Saving Time to ensure
that our WebEvent customers experience little or no disruption to their event
calendars during this DST transition. By issuing this release now, our
customers can feel confident that any events scheduled during this DST
extension will not be compromised."
WebEvent integrates event calendaring and scheduling into a single
enterprise-wide system, providing one view into a universe of event
information. Ideal for the large university or business, it simplifies the
communication of event information by enabling users to post events to a
variety of event calendars that can be accessed by internal and external
audiences via a Website or intranet.
Available on-premise or as a Software as a Service (SaaS) application,
WebEvent View is designed to help increase event awareness and attendance,
reduce the number of conflicting events, and improve the overall event
