We currently use OpusFlow group calendar for exchange.  What it does is the people assigned to the group all of their calendar items are automatically copied to the calendar so all the people see when to schedule meetings or events.
For example we have 5 managers assigned to the group they all see each others schedules.

How do I set this up in Exchange 2013 without having a 3rd party application?  We currently use Outlook 2010 on our staff computers.

Not entirely sure what you mean.

But visiting there website, noticing community forum closed and there pages are copyright 2005, I am guessing this software is no longer developed (and/or supported)?

Very good chance it wont work with Exchange 2013.

It's possible the functionality you are looking for is native to Exchange. What business goal are you trying to accomplish?

You can use either a public folder containing a calendar (yes public folders are back in fashion). Public folders can be mail enabled and are available to the whole organisation by default. You set permissions individually.

Or you can use a shared mailbox calendar - you can think of this as a user sharing their mailbox with selected collaborators. The permissions are botton up - you start with no-one having access and assign access.

You don't need group mailboxes or shared calendars or 3rd party tools to be able to SEE each others calendar and add scheduling appointments.

I love the on-line guides that the University of Colorado produce, crisp and clear.

Share your calendar with others

Then just open as many users calendars as you like in outlook and schedule your appointment.
