The age-old question of room/resource booking has reared its head at my new school. Any advice on good/bad products? Money is available if needed, simplicity of use is the key factor.

We've been using "Classroom Booking System (CRBS)" which is developed by a forum member here, totally free, for the past couple of years. Just about to move to "CSE" which intgrates helpdesk, asset manager, and room bookings into one complete system.

Room Booking System - Online Room Booking Software is exceptionally good! Used it for years, brilliant product and support. Well worth the money!

Ouch, that's expensive! It is genuinely that much better than something like Classroombookings - the open source hassle-free room booking system for schools. which is free?

Only 10 resources in that, which isn't enough for us.

I use MRBS: Introduction free, has email alerts, allows approval of bookings if needed

I believe that's a limitation of the free version. Ours costs £50 per annum and allows more but I don't know if there's a limit.

+1 for the Room Booking System, great guys and just works no fiddling needed. Reads from Sims overnight to mke any changes

I do like the look of the live feed from SIMS which Room Booking System has, as it even picks up cover lessons, etc. It is a lot of money though!

another vote for room booking system over here. Amazing piece of software and even lets you use LDAP so your staff don't complain of "another password to remember".
12th July 2013, 01:24 PM #13
Any ideas of what to do if you can't get LDAP connected to websites? I've looked at MRBS, CRBS, and still have nto got a solution that reads sims timetables, and integrates to active directory, but runs on my own web servers (no external ip).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Another vote here, excellent package, if a little expensive!

Yet another vote for roombookingsystem.co.uk one of the best and easiest pieces of software I have ever used.
