Tech Perks: 5 Room Scheduling Software Benefits

28 April, 2020

Are your employees fighting over who reserved a room? When it comes to organizing an important meeting the last thing you want is to show up to a conference room that is already occupied.

Having a person assigned to track multiple rooms and locations is incredible ineffective. Especially if meetings are constantly being canceled and rebooked. There's a lot of room for error.

Trying to manage a spreadsheet or even a calendar of different meetings can get overwhelming. Especially if the person in charge is out of the office or if someone needs an answer quickly

Room scheduling software can do the hard work for you. Want to know how this software can make your business run more smoothly? Here are five room scheduling software benefits.

  • No more confusion

A clear benefit is that a system like this can clear up confusion if someone felt they had reserved the room but then find another meeting taking place. This can happen simply by mistake when multiple people are using a spreadsheet or if the information wasn't distributed to all the appropriate people. 

Make sure the software system you choose offer real-time room availability insights that will help employees check for rooms when a last-minute meeting is necessary.

  • Room Scheduling at Your Fingertips

Whether it's the convenience of a simple mobile app or a large touchscreen TV, room scheduling systems helps you schedule the perfect time and space for your meeting instantly.

It's great to have information about the rooms themselves when using a room scheduling system. You can view the dimensions of the conference room; how many people can fit into it and what technology is available in the meeting room.

  • Easily Locate a Meeting

Scheduling software can be installed in high traffic areas such as your lobby. This can be done using large flatscreen TVs. Your visitors can simply walk up to the touchscreen and easily find their meetings. They can also view an easy-to-navigate map that will help guide them to their meeting location.

  • Analytics Tools

We also recommend using the system’s built-in analytics to track meeting room usage and efficiency. Helping to plan out finite meeting resources further in advance. One can also use these reports to see what times of the day, month, and year, specific rooms are most used. Looking at room utilization data can help any office with limited meeting space run more efficiently.

  • Tablets for Clear Room Status

Room scheduling systems usually arrive with smartphone apps and meeting room tablets. These tablets are installed directly on the outside of the meeting spaces. They allow anyone to walk up to a room and know when it is being used or if there is availability.

This can avoid meetings being interrupted, plus they can be updated in real-time. So, if a meeting ends early the host can free up time for someone else to use the space. 

Ready to Make Meetings a Breeze?

We hope these five benefits have shown how meeting room booking technology can help your business run more efficiently. There are so many ways that this system can instantly make reserving rooms easier.
