Not content with providing scheduling and sales apps for businesses, our app development team have turned their gaze inward, and created an Exchange-compatible meeting room app that’s stopped us fighting in the corridors like animals. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Room24.
What is Room24?
Room24 is our new meeting room booking app, tested to destruction here at Jigsaw24 HQ, and now available in a richer, more stable incarnation to the wider world, completely free of charge.
What’s so good about it?
Well, if you’re anything like we were, your meeting room schedule is divided between indecipherable whiteboards outside each room, and a sometimes-accurate, sort-of-public calendar that supposedly collates all the official bookings. I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been hurt by a calendar like that, and we’re not foolish enough to let it happen again.
Room24 replaces this with a sleek, branded app that integrates into your company’s Exchange/Office 365 setup and pulls booking details directly from Exchange/Office 365 calendars. Staff can see the availability of rooms in their own calendar client and book one that’s free.
Room24 stylishly presents this meeting information on the iPad outside the meeting room, so everyone knows when the room’s taken (it’ll show a giant red or green availability message, should any passersby want to know the status of a room) and also offers functionality to book a free room directly from the iPad. Room24 handles double bookings on a first come, first served basis, so your business will no longer be plagued by the infighting, deceit and general skullduggery that double bookings are scientifically proven to cause.
Who’s it for?
Room24 is suitable for any business, regardless of size or location, and doesn’t require any manual managing, controlling or updating. If something goes horrendously wrong, all you have to do is contact our app dev team, who, having built the thing from the ground up, should have a fix for you in no time.
This blog is usually a haven of commercialism. Why are you giving away something for free?
OK, you got us. The app and all its functionality is free – you can go and download it here, then book away to your heart’s content. If you want a slightly snazzier solution – in-app branding, a collection of iPad to run it on, branded stands and brackets to proudly display said iPad outside your meeting rooms – then we’ll ask you for money and set you up with the predictably named Room24 Pro. We can also provide training on the app, or code in bespoke functionality. (Again, we will have to charge you for this. Such are the bonds of capitalism.) But the actual app itself is absolutely gratis, regardless of whether you choose to buy the rest.
