Today, there’s an app for pretty much anything. Moreover, apps keep developing as the world gets more and more connected. Entrepreneurs and managers can choose from a variety of tools to improve their productivity since every moment they waste during work means losing either time or both time and money.

Time plays a significant value in our lives, and the more we appreciate it and learn how to use it wisely, the richer we get. And when it comes to time management, we can enter the glorious world of online calendars. These calendars are not just life-savers. They help shape our everyday lives. So no wonder the world’s tech giants have all got a piece of the online calendar industry pie.

The tech landscape

Google (GOOGL), Yahoo (AABA), and Microsoft (MSFT) have taken the lead for years as organizational tools. But this dominance might be about to change with the Dayhaps calendar app, considered as the “WhatsApp for calendars.” The app makes it easy to create single and group online calendars.

The biggest advantage of Google is obvious. It’s integrated with the kingdom of other Google products, but also to-do lists and booking tools. But a service disruption, such as the one in June, can leave users beyond frustrated for several hours, unable to check their schedule. So there’s always space for competitors.

The unknown online calendar race between tech companies

Back in 2015, Microsoft acquired Sunrise, a free calendar app that was developed by former Foursquare designers only a few years before it was acquired. On Tuesday, Microsoft announced it will simplify calendar entries for its users. Also, in 2015, acquired Tempo calendar while Google acquired Timeful.

All these acquisitions could make you consider if there’s an unknown online calendar race going on between the giants. Even Facebook (FB) and Apple (AAPL) offer events and calendar management on their platforms. With new productivity platforms launching in the innovative app development space, this race seems likely to continue.

Combining chat groups with online calendars

So why not bring the best of all these trends together, connecting people while easing their planning process? The founders of the Dayhaps calendar app did just that by creating a simple way to create group calendars in a similar way to how people create group chats. The app makes it easy to manage multiple calendars, single and groups, but also to share calendars with friends, family, colleagues, or any other community. The name stands for “Day Happenings.”

Dayhaps seems to have a lot happening already as a new start-up company from Nevada, gaining fans all over the world while challenging leading platforms like Google and Microsoft calendar. The Dayhaps founders brought new meaning to the online calendar dimension. They offer a solution that makes it easy for anyone to create a group calendar—even when they have no experience with today’s tech applications.

The big four tech companies have shaped the world we know today, but they’re facing a great deal of scrutiny due to their practices. The pace of today’s world demands new innovations to help us keep up with our busy lifestyles. And Dayhaps is a clear reflection of that trend. It even goes a step further in simplifying the planning process for its users.
