Need a Conference Room Manager?
If you have been looking for a tool to help you manage conference rooms in SharePoint, then this 3rd party product may be your solution. I needed a tool that enhanced the way SharePoint presented rooms and calendar events for our conference rooms, and this was the best tool I could find.
Not only was it a snap to setup, but it also allowed me to customize it to fit our needs. I am implementing this product with a custom SharePoint Designer workflow to allow some oversight of room scheduling. We have some rooms that require an approval before the meeting/event can be posted on the calendar. The built-in "waiting list" concept made that an easy task for my workflow.
Overall, this is a handy product that works well, is pretty flexible, and doesn't break your budget.
This is not a professionally made S/W
Not so expensive.
Not sure if they fixed this issue,
We asked this vendor for this issue to fix, they asked another $$$$ to fix their issue. - ridiculous as we used to have a valid support contract.
We wasted over $1000 US dollar and abandoned this S/W and back to Exchange meeting room.
Be very careful with this S/W and don't waste your money and time on this unprofessional software.
Smart solution for business
Very interesting room and equipment reservation solution. As a SharePoint solution Room Manager was immediatey accessible over the Intranet using a standard web browser. (No downloads required, no software to install, no hardware to purchase, no IT skills required and no upfront cost).
Taking advantage of the free trial version the Room Manager were up and working in under 5 minutes. After using the system for two weeks alongside we decided to purchase the solution. Its great and our end users like it very much, as it is so easy to use, and so powerfull.
