Meetings are an essential part of any business. These are external meetings with potential clients, interview candidates and salespersons and internal meetings with the staff members. These meetings can be scheduled by booking a room.
This booking process may seem easy. But in reality, the procedure and number of people involved are very time-consuming. Booking a meeting first begins with the availability of the room. The room’s availability is confirmed by the admin team. In case a meeting room is not available at the desired time slot, then the meetings need to be rescheduled depending on the availability of all those involved. In case the meeting room is available but due to miscommunication, it is booked by multiple individuals for multiple meetings it not only creates an embarrassing situation but also leads to wastage of time effort and resources. Another issue that is faced is when a meeting room is booked but the host and the participants do not show up.
In simple terms, ghost meetings and duplicate bookings lead to wastage of time effort and company resources. A solution to this problem is a conference room scheduling solution. this solution lets you seamlessly book meetings, ensures that all resources are optimised well. The question that arises is which is the best meeting room booking system.

Data and information drive today’s world. Information is required to make all decisions and carry out actions. Similarly, a meeting room display system should also display two categories of information. The first should be schedule and availability. The display systems should show if the room is available for a particular time slot, when the next meeting is and how many meetings are there in a day.
One might ask how this information is helpful. A conference room availability display system ensures that two meetings are not scheduled together at the same time, Further, it helps book ad hoc meetings without disturbing any other meeting.
This information should be visible… This should be available on the display system from close and far away. The latter is achieved by the use of coloured LED Blinkers on the display system.
The display should also give information about the amenities available in that particular room. One meeting may require a projector and speakers, while another would need whiteboards and communication devices. Knowing which room has which amenities in advance helps save time.
