RoomManager Touch

RoomManager touch offers you the possibility to configure your meeting room screen with the touch version of RoomManager.

This version allows you to create and cancel meetings directly on the screen with no need to use a computer.

It also obliges you to confirm meeting assistance once you get to the room. Just by pressing the confirmation button, the meeting will be confirmed. If a meeting hasn’t been confirmed for 10 minutes by any of the assistants, the room becomes available.

This is how RoomManager Touch will look on your room screen:

Confirming a meeting

With this new touch feature, RoomManager requests confirmation upon meeting start time.

Five minutes before the event start, there will be a message on the screen that requests confirmation of the meeting. This message will appear for 10 minutes from the start time of the event.

This way, the host or an attendant confirms that the event is really happening and that the room is really busy. If no one confirms the event going on the room, the room will become available after 10 minutes.

These times can be configured on a project basis. If you think you should allow more time to confirm, this can be changed to the preferred time.

When you press “Yes”, the event will be shown as “On time” and the room will become “Busy”
