How Can I Quickly Find an Available Room for a Meeting?

In bustling offices and co-working spaces, finding a free room at the last minute can feel like a treasure hunt. Employees might wander the halls, peering into windows and disrupting ongoing meetings, only to find all rooms occupied. This not only wastes time but also impacts overall productivity. 

Crestron offers a streamlined approach to this common problem. Quickly identify available spaces from your desk, personal device, or even on the spot using enterprise-grade scheduling panels. The system gathers all types of spaces—conference rooms, huddle rooms, and even desks—on one convenient platform, making it easier to find and book the right one for your needs.

How Do I Check the Availability Status of a Room?

Crestron Flex incorporates availability indicators, scheduling panels, and illuminated wayfinding solutions to highlight availability. These provide real-time updates on room statuses, eliminating the guesswork. As you approach a room, easily see if it’s available, occupied, or needs to be cleaned, thanks to customizable indicators that display different colors for different room statuses. Additionally, scheduling panels outside rooms and in-room signage display availability and schedules. By demystifying room statuses, Crestron Flex Scheduling ensures your teams and guests can focus on what matters: the meeting itself.

How Can I Offer Versatile Scheduling Options? 

Crestron’s desk scheduling products transform your desk areas and private offices into fully schedulable workstations. Whether you need a quiet space for focused work or a collaborative place for team discussions, you can book the ideal space with a tap on a compact touchscreen or a quick scan of a QR code on your phone. This level of flexibility allows each employee to find a workspace that suits their needs.

How Secure Is My Data? 

Companies and organizations must protect their sensitive scheduling data, including meeting details, participant lists, and resource allocation, from unauthorized access and cyber threats. Crestron Flex Scheduling addresses these data security concerns by adhering to robust security standards. The system supports a full range of security standards, including 802.1X, Transport Layer Security (TLS), Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS-140-2), Secure Shell (SSH), and Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) for secure data transfer and remote command execution. 

Can I Use My Existing Third-Party Scheduling Software?

When implementing a room scheduling system, the last thing any organization wants is to grapple with compatibility issues or be forced to abandon tried-and-true third-party scheduling applications that team members are already comfortable using. Crestron Flex Scheduling understands this imperative for seamless integration. It natively integrates with most third-party scheduling applications, offering a cohesive experience across your organization’s tech ecosystem.
