Receptionist Resource Scheduling Software
Enhance Your Company’s Professional Image with resource scheduling software.
Resource Central helps you give a good impression to visitors arriving at your company office for the first time. Once visitors walk through the front door and into the building, they immediately form an opinion of your company. If the visitors are new or potential customers, giving them a warm welcome and speedy, correct information may make them long-term customers.
Resource Central makes your visitors feel welcome and informed, while at the same time freeing up staff resources to focus on other important tasks.Read More
Resource Central includes a feature where key personnel, like a secretary or P.A., can handle all existing resource reservations. E.g. if a meeting organizer arranged a meeting with 4 attendees, but scheduled one of the large conference rooms with e.g. 20 seats, key personnel can change the room booking, so the large room would be available for others.
The Booking Manager feature is especially helpful for organizations that have a shortage of meeting rooms, and really helps an organization improve its meeting room booking and resource optimization.
Book additional resources like laptops, projectors, cars, bikes etc.
Leverage your booking processes by including these additional resources in Resource Central.
Order forms are 100% customizable and can be adapted to your specific needs. This means that the associated services available for order on each order form will vary based on the individual meeting room, building, location or country. With Resource Central meeting room scheduling software, you can book parking lots, event planning or anything else that fits your company’s needs.
Improve your customer service via the visitor management system
Upgrade your customer service with visitor badges, barcode scans, and email notifications.
Provide visitors with printed visitor badges. Visitor badges prevent those awkward moments when you realize that you have forgotten someone’s name, which can damage your relationships with potential clients or partners. Perform barcode scans to keep track of registered visitors with ease, so you can determine who has arrived and who hasn’t without the need to use pen and paper. This gives your staff more time to talk to visitors and make them feel welcome.Read More
