Toronto, Canada – January 28, 2009 - The Peel District School Board, Canada's second largest and one of North America's fastest growing public school systems recently acquired KWizCom's Calendar Plus web component for SharePoint and is already seeing the benefits.

KWizCom's SharePoint Calendar Plus is a flexible, user friendly; add on for out of the box SharePoint. Calendar Plus connects to any number of SharePoint lists, of any type on any location and displays one consolidated view of all aggregated events. Calendar Plus can also retrieve data from Microsoft Outlook Web Access (OWA) and display each user's meetings/events on the same aggregated calendar view.

Recently Peel representatives reported that they are now using KWizCom's web component to show merged calendars on School broadcast pages including School Events, Rotary Calendar and Holidays. They utilize Calendar Plus to show merged calendars on Team sites. KWizCom's user friendly functionality enables a clear view of the schedule - each team member has their own calendar, with a different colour. In addition Peel also takes advantage of KWizCom's Calendar Plus aggregation capabilities to show merged calendars on Personal Sites - OWA calendar, School calendar, MyClass calendar.

KWizCom's VP Sales and Marketing Nimrod Geva reveals: "We are happy to see that the Peel District School Board is utilizing our SharePoint add on. We believe that education is one of the most important things that there is and certainly is the most powerful tool for change. We are delighted to have the opportunity to support schools in bringing the very best to their students and making work-flow simpler for school employees".

Neal Larsen, Manager of Classroom Technology for the Peel District School Board explains: "The KWizCom calendar was instrumental in meeting our requirement of merging multiple SharePoint lists into a single, simple to use, user friendly calendar, and allowed our limited development resources to focus on other pertinent aspects of our project."

The Peel School Board has more plans for Calendar Plus in the future. They will utilize Calendar Plus in Teacher homework sites (MyClass sites) to show the School Rotary calendar, enable display in Calendar view instead of current List view, use in school web sites to merge Board events with School events and more.
