Here’s what school districts around the USA are saying…

“MLSchedules™ Software has streamlined the building use request process for our district. Requests that used to take minutes to process now take seconds. That's a big deal when you think about the volume of requests that we receive in a school year. The software is as convenient for the people making requests as it is for the people processing them. Emails are generated any time a request is acted on. A requester can see their request in our building use calendar the instant it is approved. I have used both paper requests and electronic form requests in the past. I couldn't imagine ever going back now that I've seen what ML schedules can do."
