Events Management Software
How did we get here?
In 2016, our events management software system (EMS) became the University’s response to feedback requesting better coordination of campus-wide activities. When asked about the previous state of on-campus events and scheduling, the USA community shared these insights:
- Who should I contact when booking a campus facility
- What facilities are available for booking on campus
- Need a centralized events calendar to view USA’s events
- There are often competing and/or conflicting events which result in lower attendance for certain events
- Some events are promoted more heavily than others
- The University is often overcommitted, creating on-campus parking challenges
- It is difficult to share with the Mobile community at-large a reliable source where they can learn more about USA events
Thanks to the feedback we received and to better coordinate the University’s activities, we launched EMS, a Master Special Events Calendar, and the Office of Special Events.
