Kinetic Schedule - Overview

Configurable, Web-Based Scheduling Calendar Application

Kinetic Schedule is a configurable scheduling calendar application that enables immediate viewing of resources, providing a clear view of resource assignment. Each event or resource can be configured to link to an event record in any Web-enabled application to allow creation, editing, reallocation or rescheduling of an event.

Scheduling Your Resources Has Never Been Easier!

This application enables your team to schedule, track and view tens of thousands of resources across a variety of industries.

What Makes It Different?

Kinetic Schedule can draw events from any existing or (API) data source application and combine them into one calendar. For example, change-task information and system backup times from BMC Remedy or another ITSM suite can be combined with personnel roster information from an HR application to schedule changes; room bookings for meetings can be displayed with training dates to avoid conflicts.

With Kinetic Schedule, you can also drill down and filter to view any resource information you need from any compatible application. The attributes you want to filter can be easily customized. For example, you can quickly drill down by location, skill level, certification, availability and much more! You can then open a Web link to the source application to reassign, reschedule, edit or create an event.
