Let Key Personnel Manage your Meeting Rooms
With our meeting room booking system, key personnel, like a secretary or receptionist, can handle all existing room and resource reservations. For example, if a meeting organizer arranged a meeting with four attendees but scheduled one of the large conference rooms with 20 seats, key personnel can change the room booking, so the large room would be available for others.
This Booking Manager feature is especially helpful for organizations that have a shortage of meeting rooms.

Whether you’re a facility manager, CIO, or event planner, our meeting room and resource booking system with reporting allows you to keep better track of resource and workspace usage at your facility. You can generate detailed reports about workspace and meeting room usage for recordkeeping purposes. Reports let you know how space is used, so you can determine how much and what kind of meeting room space you need, and what you don’t need, ultimately helping to lower overhead costs.
