"Room utilization", which is also referred to as "space utilization," "facility utilization," or more generically as "resource utilization," is a measure of operational effectiveness that figures prominently in a number of industries, but is of special significance in:
A number of practices play a role in room utilization. The first is optimizing room utilization -- ensuring that meetings are taking place in rooms of the appropriate size, that meetings and events are distributed across your rooms so no space is over/underused, etc. The second is to minimize no-shows so that space that could be used isn't left empty. And then facility utilization reporting lets you document room utilization.
Room Manager's equipment booking enables users to order any kind of Equipment's as audio visual equipment at the time of booking a meeting room, conference room, or presentation facility. These days, most meeting facilities are fitted with basic audio visual equipment as standard. However, there are always occasions when an extra flip chart, or overhead projector, may be useful. Room Manager enables the user to order equipment at the time of booking the room, or separately at a later date.
