Toronto, Ontario. October 24, 2007 - The Mantis Web Content Management System (CMS) tackles an online event calendar completely customizable to suit the users' interests and location. The event calendar offers instant access to hundreds of community events and information while sifting out content that is not relevant to them. Users can choose to be notified via email of local events that reflect their specific interest. The events submitted to the calendar are entered by community event organizers which fosters user contributed content.
York Region Media Group selected c-Seven Media to build the online application because of c-Seven's speed to market capability gained from its Mantis CMS. The concept for the project comes from The Newspaper Next Report undertaken by the American Press Institute. The goal is for newspaper publishers to increase their audience by providing useful solutions relevant to the communities they serve.
c-Seven worked with the client to analyse and design a viable solution based on their initial concept. The Mantis CMS formed the base of solution allowing the calendar application to be quickly built on top of it in order to meet the critical holiday season deadline.
After the initial launch across York Region the calendar will be deployed throughout all of Southern Ontario. The online calendar can be viewed at http://pop.yorkregion.com
