The Unity Group has created a dedicated event calendar management system for the POLIN Museum.
POLIN is the first public-private institution in Poland created jointly by the government, local authorities and a local government organization, which focuses on issues related to the heritage of Polish Jews.
After analyzing business needs and user expectations, we proposed a dedicated application. The framework of the new solution uses .NET technology and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013. Access to the application is possible thanks to the Active Directory service, while the KendoUI component supports calendar preview.
Event management – Owing to SSO (Single-Sign-On), the POLIN team is able to create, edit and search for events when outside the Museum as well. Each user has the ability to view items assigned to each other user. Each new entry receives a unique ID, and it is also possible to attach related files and reserve resources.
Friendly interface – Our team of UX experts worked closely with POLIN employees to design a friendly interface visually consistent with the Museum’s website. This process also took into account the needs and technological mechanisms of the event management system together with its key functions.
Automatic notifications – All employees involved in the preparation and management of events – coordinators, promoters, photographers, curators etc. – can now receive updates via email about progress or when new entries appear on the calendar. Notifications can be configured in the administration panel.
Dictionary management – Thanks to communication between the front application and the SharePoint console, users can manage dictionaries by adding new and editing existing catalogs or deleting data used in the application. It is also possible to set related notifications, which are configured in the administration panel.
Monitoring and reporting – The built-in report module allows users to conveniently monitor events taking place at POLIN, control the use of resources and create forecasts for future plans. All these elements are created using predefined Excel templates containing data downloaded from the list of events added to the calendar.
