    Online booking system

    Hi All,
    Just wondering if someone could offer me a little advise/help. I have had a look at the below posts but still need a little help. I am after an Online booking system to book out our classrooms. Is there any software that would import the school table from Sims? Thanks in advance for any help.

    I'm not sure about the SIMs importing but we've been using CRBS for about 3 years and are very happy with it

    We use MRBS, I too am intersted in a booking system I can import data into, but this time from Timetabler. I am investigating the possibility of importing data (say, from a CSV) into MRBS at the moment.

    Hi Mark,

    I see you've looked at one of my threads!
    The Theatre project mentioned in my thread was a specialist booking/ticketing project which doesn't have to be complete for about 6months.
    For general classroom / area booking we ended up going for a separate product - http://www.schoolbooking.com - very 'cheap' in comparison to the paid ones. We actually organised a long trial first and sought feedback from staff - all were very complimentary, so we opted to buy.
    This also does fill your sims export/import requirement too - you can upload all rooms/all staff if you wish!

    Hope that helps?

    Looks okay, pity it doesn't offer any directory integration. I don't want my users to have to remember yet another username/password combination.

    We uploaded staff using the same naming convention used for AD accounts and set a default password for staff to log in for the first time. I dare say that some of our staff decided to use the same password - although I have previously recommended using unique passwords for separate services to minimise security risks etc.
