Open-source calendar scheduling for sales teams

Scheduling can be complicated for sales teams

As a sales team member, you've got a lot going on. You're not just promoting your organization's brand and products but also maintaining the flow of communication and information. People often forget that sales professionals are educators, influencers, and problem solvers. Your work means constantly adjusting your communication style and tone to package iterative solutions that convert curious visitors into lifelong clients. However, doing this means you have many appointments, not only with future and current patrons but also with coworkers in your department and others.

If all of this wasn't complicated enough, we also have to consider that more and more people are working within a globally distributed hybrid environment. This means that when you're organizing meeting dates and times, you must account for multiple time zones and shifting availability schedules. This can make coordinating meetings of any size and length challenging and time-consuming. One cancellation can cause a domino-like chain reaction that sucks up time as you try to reschedule the event without impacting your other priorities. Naturally, these are all things you're capable of handling, but wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to?

What is Cal, and how does it fit in? is a white-label compatible, open-source scheduling infrastructure product and platform. Our software is built with the scalability, stability, and customization capabilities that sales teams need. Even though Cal is a developer-friendly product, it also includes the everyday power user in mind. This means that individuals can customize their calendar scheduling environment without touching a single line of code by using our built-in app store. Members of sales teams can use this to effortlessly add integrations such as, Zapier, Salesforce, and SendGrid. In addition, Cal supports a wide variety of video conferencing platforms and comes with options for SOC2, HIPAA, and GDPR compliance.

Cal's customization options also include user-friendly interfaces for adding multiple availability schedules, routing forms, and automated workflows. 

Since Cal is a calendar scheduling tool, it's capable of interfacing with a wide variety of digital calendar products such as Google Calendar, Microsoft, and Apple. However, we know many teams use different products, so we have a built-in integration for adding calendars via CalDAV. Adding your calendars to your account lets the system cross-reference your current schedule with your custom availability to ensure double bookings are a thing of the past. These features work together to take the stress out of coordinating meetings. This means initiating, canceling, and rescheduling meetings can now be done in just a minute or two by sending a link and clicking a button.
