Daily Scheduling Software: I need advice for a Mac/Windows friendly solution

Posted:
in Mac Software edited January 2014
We have tried MultiCalendar http://www.multicalendar.com/ and did not have great success with it just on the Windows network. In fact, the product pretty sucked but when it worked, it was great.



Now that I have introduced Mac's into my company, I need a calendar/scheduling software so we can schedule deliveries for drivers that is compatible with Mac's and Windows.



In a nutshell: We manufacture concrete products and schedule delivery of these products weeks in advance and I need a way to see what driver is suppose to be where on what day with what product. iCal shared over a Mac network would be great but that may require Leopard Server. Something I am trying to avoid because I am not sure how that would work, how easy it would be for me to setup Server, and that may be a while off.



I have found this company http://www.nowsoftware.com/nighthawkSubsite/index.html that has that product coming out in the Spring of 2007 and it works on Windows and Macs. It looks like a iCal on steriods and seems promising even if it makes it out after or at the same time as Leopard.



Any suggestions?

    Try Google Calendar. It is great and works on any platform.

    My wife's company uses Entourage. It works really well and most of the non-Mac staff already knew how to use it, so adding the Macs went seemlessly.

    Hi Aplnub,


     


    I hope you are doing well. I just came across your post and thought to suggest you a tool which can help you in scheduling & planning your resources (Drivers). The software tool is eResource scheduler which have a booking chart where you can book your resources on different projects. It will give you a graphical representation of resources which are booked on different project for what time period. Regarding iCal i would say that the software has inbuilt mailing functionality where the resources get mails instantly when a new booking is created for them. You can use this application on a client-server architecture where you can collaborate it with other PC's and let your resources view their schedules. For more details you can visit their website and i think you'll get a free 14 day trial to evaluate it. i hope this will work.
