Extron is now shipping the Extron Room Scheduling application. Extron says it has simplified the room booking experience by pairing standard TouchLink Pro touch panels with Microsoft Exchange to create a complete, easy-to-use solution. While competitive devices rely on additional scheduling software or external processors, TouchLink Pro touch panels only require free Room Agent software and Exchange to deliver a convenient stand-alone room booking solutions for any size facility. Users can reserve rooms from any Exchange-connected device, including their mobile devices, or from the touch panel itself. Since Extron Room Scheduling uses popular 5″ and 7″ TouchLink Pro touch panels, multiple mounting options are available, including on-wall, in-wall, as well as secure mounting to almost any flat surface, including glass or granite with the TLP Pro 520M.
Extron TLP Pro 520M, TLP Pro 720M, and TLP Pro 720T TouchLink Pro touch panels require no programming, as they simply operate as a client of Microsoft Exchange. Booking a room from the touch panel is as easy as tapping the “Reserve” button for the time you want. The intuitive interface clearly displays room availability and a timeline view of the room’s occupancy status for the rest of the day. In addition to the customizable touch panel interface, bright green and red LEDs within the bezel make it easy to see if a room is occupied or available, even from down the hall.
