    Room Booking Software

    Hi All

    I've been asked to look into a solution for booking rooms/resources online!

    The key features I’m looking for are:

    1.) for all external bookings, and email/notifications sent to the finance dept.

    2.) Easy to use

    3.) Accessible to all staff users on the network

    4.) Produced meaningful stats on useage for internal/external bookings

    5.) Integration with outlook/exchange would be advantageous but not a necessity!

    Does anyone use a system like this or know of one available??

    Thanks for any help in advance!!

    Gary

    This is what we use for room and resource booking. Staff seem to get on with it fairly well.

    We've just got this one

    http://www.fasttrackroombooking.com/FTRBFeatures.asp

    As it does invoicing for external bookings and has a nice easy to see front page.

    I didn't set it up, one of my colleagues did. It's set to e-mail me when equipment is booked but not when rooms are so the facility is there.

    Fabulous Room Booking Software - all runs over the network, easy to set up and easy for staff to use. Ticks all of the boxes for us.

    Re: Room Booking Software

    I would have to echo iatkinson's recommandation for mrbs. Although the vanilla version is perfectly fine and has such features including AD auth, email notification (which we use - and very easy to setup), I have made several tweaks to it such as restricted to only 2 week booking etc; with a little php knowledge the whole software can be made to do a very good job, although this of course certainly isn't necessary and can run fine from an install from vanilla.

    Stats is done via report queries for searching for bookings by username, time, date etc. Multiple locations can be set up and each location can have a separate email setup (so for our ICT rooms, when someone books, an email is sent to the teacher whos room it is).

    I think I am right in saying that this is the site for the system he has developed.
