Plus, you won't have to worry about problems like accidentally using someone else's conference room booking.

Spend Less Time on Administrative Tasks
Scheduling a meeting used to be the responsibility of a staff member, usually an administrative assistant. This employee would have to coordinate a time and place. Then afterwards inform all the attendees about it. If there was a last-minute change, it would get even more complicated.

For example, if there’s a last-minute change in the meeting schedule through this system, everyone will be informed almost immediately, what new room and resources have been allocated. No manual effort is needed.
Furthermore, with a meeting room manager tablet sitting outside every meeting room, such a last-minute change will be visualized on every room tablet immediately, preventing any room resource conflict. As these room tablets help with visualizing free and occupied rooms instantaneously on its display as the meetings are booked in real-time.
