SEATTLE, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Trumba Corporation, a developer of
innovative online calendaring solutions, today announced new deployments of
its Trumba Connect solution at the Park Record and Rutland Herald
newspapers. The two publications join a growing list of media organizations
currently using Trumba(R) Connect as their online platform for effectively
communicating local events to their communities.
Trumba Connect is an online event calendaring solution that helps
organizations like the Park Record and Rutland Herald increase local event
awareness and attendance. It also better connects the newspapers with their
communities through a comprehensive suite of tools that includes a hosted,
interactive Web calendar, event submission forms, and reporting services.
Trumba-powered calendars provide media organizations with the ability to
maximize user-generated content through event submission forms, create
categories of calendars based on event types or geography, reverse publish
online event information into print products, and drop events onto an array
of personal calendaring solutions.
"The new Trumba-powered event calendar has been a tremendous asset to
the Park Record website and provides us with a wonderful new communication
vehicle for effectively connecting our community with events and
information that really matter to them," said Nan Chalat-Noaker, editor at
the Park Record.
The Park Record serves the greater Summit County, UT community, while
the Rutland Herald speaks to those in the town of Rutland, VT and
throughout Rutland County. With readerships more than 2,000 miles apart,
both organizations rely on Trumba for the same reason: to connect the
people in their communities with relevant local events that matter to them.
The Park Record's online event calendar features information in a
number of different categories including Community, Meetings, Arts, Live
Music and Sports and Recreation. Site visitors can search for events in a
specific category or across all categories at once. Both the Park Record
and the Rutland Herald also provide visitors with the ability to easily
submit their own event information, which keeps the calendars vibrant and
community-centered. In addition, visitors to each calendar can add events
to their own personal calendars, set event reminders, arrange to be
notified if events change, and more.
"Local newspapers have always been the de facto resource for community
event information and that has become even more evident as these brands go
online," said Jeremy Jaech, CEO of Trumba. "But today, media outlets are
not content with simple electronic versions of their print publications,
and instead are aggressively optimizing their content for the Web. What
Trumba Connect does for these organizations is optimize their event data
for the Web so that they publish and promote local events more effectively
and their online readership can easily consume and interact with that
information. The result: increased awareness of and attendance at local
