Meetings are a necessary part of business, but what isn’t necessary is the amount of time spent arranging them. Meeting room bookings can be a minefield filled with anarchy – just ask your poor receptionist or office manager!
People forget to look at the calendar. They see that the room’s empty so they think it’s free and once inside, it can be difficult for anyone else to work out who booked the room without interruption. Interruptions kill productivity and waste time. Without a clear overview of today’s meetings, you waste space and meeting room resources.
For many companies, a flexible workplace environment with the right management tools is key to their future success. Anything that helps people to book and manage hot desks, huddle rooms, meeting pods or conference rooms effectively and with a constant overview could save thousands of dollars per day and enhance productivity instantly.
With the constant demand for increasing office and workplace productivity, it’s lucky that there is an answer. Meeting scheduling connected to your Outlook, Office 365 or Google Calendar that is displayed for everyone to see.
Here are some of the benefits that come with implementing a digital display solution that provides all of the information you and your team may need.
By using a system like AskCody, you can nail down your daily meeting room activity. With its simple booking tools integrated with your Microsoft Exchange, Outlook or Google Apps for Business accounts, you get a clear overview of who’s using the conference rooms, when the meeting pods will be free, and how long until you can get a shot at the boardroom for your next great presentation.
Pair this with the screens at your office and you have a handy way to take this out of reception and into the office. It’s digital signage that will make the receptionist happy!
The key benefit of using AskCody and pairing it with screens around the office means that meeting room schedules are visible for everyone in the organization. This eases communication, so that anyone can look at what’s going on without harassing someone for a log in or answer.
Digital screens are also pretty nifty in that they update instantly. Room booking cancellation? It can be up on the screen in seconds, ensuring that the space isn’t wasted to improve utilization of the meeting space.
