New EMS event scheduling software launched
In June it was communicated that University of the Pacific was transitioning from the Ad Astra room scheduling system to the Event Management System (EMS) from DEA. The system is now operational and ready to be used. All of the Student Life facilities on the Stockton campus are populated and ready for scheduling. Additional conference rooms such as the Library, OIT, CPCE, and all internal conference rooms will be added over the course of the next few weeks. In the interim, continue to follow the current reservation procedures for these facilities.
There will be additional enhancements with the system over the next few weeks. EMS will be integrated into Outlook, a Master calendar will feed the Pacific website, and additional services will be available in San Francisco when the Dental School moves to their new facility. All of these enhancements will serve to make your scheduling capabilities easier and more reliable.
