    SEATTLE, Wash., March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Trumba Corporation, a
 developer of innovative online calendaring solutions, announced today that
 Taylor University has selected Trumba Connect to enhance its event calendar
 and serve as a two-way communication tool between the University and its
 students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Trumba Connect is an online event
 calendaring solution that helps organizations increase event awareness and
 attendance and better connects them with their audiences through a
 comprehensive suite of tools that includes a hosted, interactive web
 calendar, email, and reporting services.
     Trumba Connect allowed Taylor University to replace its old event
 calendar and add rich new features, such as RSS feeds, reminders via text
 messaging and email, and seamless integration into its website to maintain
 the university's brand look and feel.
     "We were looking for a product that would easily fit within our
 branding and provide solid calendaring," said Evan Kittleman, director of
 online communications at Taylor University. "But once I learned about
 Trumba Connect, it became apparent that we needed more than just solid
 calendaring to maximize the success and usage of our event calendar.
 Trumba's rich feature set exceeded my expectations and helped me create a
 more dynamic and interactive calendar than I originally planned."
     While the events calendar at Taylor University is centrally managed,
 the use of multiple editor accounts in Trumba Connect will enable
 departments across campus to maintain their own events in the future. The
 campus-wide calendar currently displays a variety of activities, including
 admissions, athletics, performing arts, and parent and alumni events.
     "As the Internet continues to be a central source of information, it is
 necessary for universities to have easily accessible and timely event
 information available online to students, alumni, and the local community,"
 said Jeremy Jaech, CEO of Trumba. "Trumba Connect allows Taylor University
 to enhance the way it delivers event data in order to drive greater
 awareness and attendance for its events, as well as stay better connected
 to the local community."
