Outlook and Exchange Integration for Room Booking Systems

Outlook and Exchange Integration for Room Booking Systems

Due to increasingly busy offices, forever shrinking budgets and flexible working patterns, meeting room and resource booking are quickly becoming business critical tasks for organizations of every size. As a Microsoft Outlook or Office 365 user, it's important that your room and resource booking system works with Microsoft Outlook and Exchange. But how do you get the benefits of a smooth interface built into Outlook without the danger of double bookings and missing appointments?

How to Conduct a Meaningful Meeting

Meetings are frequently cited as being a time-waster in workplaces. More often than not, a meeting is held when the matter could have easily been resolved with a phone call, email, status report, or simple conversation between two people.

The Future of Your Company’s Reception Area

Save Money on Commercial Real Estate in North America with Resource Booking Software

In the world of corporate real estate, the less space you can fit your workforce into, the lower your company’s operational costs. Organizations are always seeking to do more with less space while bringing down real estate costs, with practices like hoteling, hot desking, and telecommuting. Conference room booking is another area where many companies can cut costs. Oftentimes, conference rooms are underutilized due to inefficient resource booking and management.
