In coordination with Rady Development and IT, the Alumni Board has selected Trumba to provide calendar software to alumni and our related audience. While this will not replace the current Microsoft Exchange platform used within MBA programs, it will provide a state-of-the-art, brand agnostic sytem for Rady. This means full interoperability with calendar systems from Google, Yahoo and others.
Trumba uses embeddable widgets to extend calendars onto any web page, a feature that will be used heavily in upgrades to the alumni website. The company was founded by the creators of Visio and PageMaker with venture backing from the likes of Kleiner Perkins and others. Rollout is expected to begin shortly after the agreement is finalized this week.
