    I use Room Booking Software | Room & Resource Booking System | SchoolBooking - very good price-wise and have a forthcoming lettings feature too

    We also went with RBS: www.roombookingsystem.co.uk/ when we decided to free up IT rooms and have fewer (non-discrete ICT) lessons timetabled in them. We also limit staff to booking rooms no further than two weeks in the future, to limit block/repeated bookings with no clear purpose.

    RBS pulls our 2-week timetable with alternative curriculum and cover from SIMS each night. Service and support, on the whole, is excellent.

  4. Thanks to meastaugh1 from:

    That particular was an SLT initiative, so not much pushing required in our case.

    I use Venue booker. It's quiet a lot but we use it for all of our bookings (sports hall booking, Mini bus etc) and it is simple to uses, you could see about having one booking system across school and SLT member to pay for it.

    Done this via our old Frog VLE in the past for room and resource bookings - worked well but there's some better Opensource solutions out there.

    Thanks just started testing this out.

    Developer seems very good at support and I like the look of the system.

    Got it working with active directory as well which is a huge bonus.

    We use » Online multi week timetable room booking system for schools & colleges it's £50 a year but there's all sorts of modules that, for some reason, are given boy's names. IT copes with up to 4-week timetables and is simplicity to use. Our staff love it.

    Another plus is that the authors are very good at reacting to individual needs.
