Automated desk booking
ROOMMANAGER’s new desk and room booking software is a simple and powerful tool that helps you manage your workspace more efficiently. All you need is a Microsoft 365 subscription. Then, a form, an App, a visual floor, or an office plan can quickly book desks and meeting rooms. All bookings are automatically recorded on the ROOMMANAGER dashboard, so you can see how space is being used at a glance. In addition, desks and rooms can be configured for hot-desking, making it easier to facilitate flexible working arrangements.
These solutions are beneficial in coworking spaces, where it is essential to know who is using which space at any time.
But as workers seek greater flexibility and employers look for ways to reduce overhead costs, companies still need physical office spaces. As a result, new business models have emerged—more on that later—but today’s most common approach is to use existing offices more efficiently.
One way to do this is by implementing a desk booking system in your company. This solution enables you to assign desks on an ad hoc basis across your organization.

In the hybrid work model, companies are using a mix of office and remote workers
the way we work has been forever changed by COVID-19. Organizations are now more comfortable with remote work than ever before, and the future of work is no longer an office-based affair.
Hybrid work will be the new normal, with many organizations adopting a mix of office and remote workers.
As we return to our workplaces, many of us will have some degree of reservation about doing so. However, to make our return as smooth as possible, several things can be done to make us feel safe and comfortable in the office again.
From a technology standpoint, we’re already seeing software platforms allowing desk and room booking so that you don’t accidentally bump into someone when you arrive at the office. They even let you know if someone’s desk is unoccupied for a long time so that it can be sanitized before someone else sits there.
And companies are setting up their offices with social distancing in mind, blocking off every other desk and changing how they use common spaces like break rooms or meeting rooms.
For all the talk about remote work as the future, a recent survey by Gartner found that only 2% of executives want to make their workforce entirely remote. Instead, a majority — 69% — want to adopt a hybrid model in which employees work both in the office and remotely.
“Hybrid work,” in which employees are asked to perform both traditional office tasks and more virtual jobs, is a much larger issue than simply sending people home, says John Reed of Robert Half.
Companies have begun to realize that remote workers can’t do everything from home, says Peter Hinssen, chairman and co-founder of Nexxworks. “We need to start building a new world where this is a combination of different modes.”
Does that mean companies will have to think about how they manage their offices: How many people can be in the office at once? How do you manage desk and room booking? How do you manage catering? And how do you ensure that colleagues can focus while they’re there?
This has created a need for apps that can adapt to this new work environment.
One of the solutions that have emerged is the desk booking app. This software allows users to reserve and book desks, rooms, and other workspaces. Desk booking apps also include features that enable teams to see who is working in real-time so they can easily coordinate meetings.
Desk booking apps are helpful for businesses that operate in an office space and want to allow employees to book desks or other workspaces. They are also helpful for companies with remote employees who need a way to coordinate meetings between on-site and remote workers.
One of the problems with the return to work is social distancing. A desk booking app can help ensure there’s no overcrowding in an office area, which would compromise health and safety procedures. The app doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive to implement — all that’s needed is a way for employees to indicate which desk they will occupy on a given day.
A good desk booking app should be able to track the attendance and occupancy of employees.
Employees are the driving force of any business, and the workplace is where it all happens. Employees spend a lot of time at their desks, so it’s vital to ensure everyone has a desk to work at.
Desk booking apps have become popular in collaborative workplaces, where employees don’t work at their desks daily. Several desk booking apps are on the market today, but how do you know which one is right for your company?
A good desk booking app should be able to track the attendance and occupancy of employees. This information can be helpful in management when planning events or meetings. In addition, a good desk booking app should allow users to book their desks rather than having someone else do it for them.
Desk booking apps are a great way to track the occupancy of employees. This helps you to reserve space for employees who need to work in a particular area.
