Flexible Booking with Pooled Resources

More companies are focused on flexible working, where fixed workstations are no longer commonplace. Efficient and easy-to-use desk booking solutions are becoming a way to control work environments in offices to ensure available workspaces for all colleagues.

With pooled resources you can book a desk that is part of a group of resource, instead of a desk with its own specific calendar. When you arrive at the office, you will be able to choose any free desk within your booked pool. Use pooled resources for desks, parking spaces or any other equipment.

Combine Desk Booking with Screens

Our digital desk booking screens make workspace management easy. Simply locate an unoccupied desk and tap the touch screen or scan your RFID access card to book the desired workspace. Mount the screens to desks for enhanced visibility for workspace occupancy status and ease of use.

Our desk screens integrate with Microsoft Exchange / Microsoft 365®, making sure schedules are updated automatically in real-time. With the centralized web-based dashboard, you can get insights and reports of your workspaces to help monitor and optimize how they are being used in your organization.
