    Room Booking Software

    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering which room booking software you currently use?
    I know this has been asked before but looking for some upto date info on this.

    Had a headache yesterday trying to install MRBS just such a pain finally got it all installed only to discover more issues !
    Classroombookings looks pretty nice although cannot download it due to being blocked in school.

    So what have you guys got~?

    We incorporate it into SIMs. This makes timetabling easier and is handled by one person so when it comes to re-rooming for exams etc, it doesnt cause issues.

    That's interesting, although I would like to stay away from sims as that's someone else s department here so to keep it simple think I will stay away from integrating it.
    Although I do like the idea of AD integration so teachers can use their current credentials to book a room.

    we use Room Booking System - Online Room Booking Software

    Its great and integrates with the sims timetable, active directory and is cloud based. Can't ask for much more than that!

    MRBS, just google it, its really great, we use it for both our it suites and other areas (Hall etc) even school mobiles.
    Integrates with AD or standalone authentications.

    @ Zag
    Ideally looking for some free software and also something hosted in house as I dont like the idea of someone else having control over our data or when isp issues arrive...no one can use the system!
    @paul
    Installed it yesterday and have had nothing but issues so far and currently cant log in !! probably something I have done but took best part of the day tweaking php scripts to get the blasted thing going (Maybe I broke iis and mysql in the process of fumbling)

    I built my own for the lulz, actually went really well! Pulls the rooms from SIMS cross checks against the users timetable and then gives them their class lists etc.

    PHP, MySQL.

    I gave that online booking a quick whirl earlier after Zag mentioned it, although after running through the setup and creating users, I logged out and then was unable to log in with 2 of my test users and then could not log back in as admin ?! It does look very nice though.

    Something similar would be really good but hosted onsite.
