Hybrid working has changed the way we use meeting rooms forever
Many workplaces now committed to hybrid working, so meeting rooms are being repurposed to become collaboration and networking spaces. Getting this right requires support from meeting room booking software – in this environment, every visit your staff make to the office needs to be productive and enjoyable.
Online meetings are now an embedded element of workplace culture, but we still need to book meeting rooms. Today’s most successful get-togethers blend virtual guests with in-person attendees ‘sharing’ the same meeting room space, and meeting room booking software can help make sure they collaborate and contribute with equal ease.
Productivity and wellbeing
Workplace leaders now take a more holistic approach to ensuring their staff are healthy and productive. Enabling great meetings with meeting room booking software contributes hugely to the development of a happy working environment that removes frustrating obstacles from employee experience.

4 ways your meeting room booking system enhances the working environment
01Book meetings more easily
With Rendezvous meeting room booking software you use a mobile app to select and book meeting rooms, even across multiple locations, via easy-to-view graphical floorplans.
Step two is to invite your colleagues – you do this in the same transaction, and you can add catering at the same time. The app checks AV and video conferencing equipment at every location, and even parking required. The meeting room booking system sends out all the invitations.
It means Rendezvous meeting room booking software is ideal for hybrid working meetings, which can be tricky to organize manually. Rendezvous also keeps a real-time inventory of equipment, so meeting room space that you book always has the required technology in place.
02Get and send automatic notifications
When meeting details change, your Rendezvous meeting room booking solution lets everyone know automatically, emailing notifications to keep them up to date.
The system also keeps in touch with the catering team, which reduces food waste if – for example – the number of attendees changes. It also communicates with the cleaning teams about the set up and take down of the spaces.
If meeting spaces are not used as booked, Rendezvous automatically releases them back into availability. The meeting room software creates comprehensive reports and analytics on space utilization, which enables robust planning decisions to be made as the workplace evolves.
03Integration is key
Rendezvous meeting room software is designed with an API-first approach that means it integrates seamlessly with your other important workplace technologies such as Outlook and Office 365 – meetings are entered automatically into your diary. Occupancy sensors help workplace leaders keep track of people density, while Zoom/Teams integrations make video conferences run without a hitch.
The meeting room booking software also works in partnership with digital signage, so panels outside the door show if and when a room is available. In-room panels enable attendees to extend an overrunning meeting’s time or order extra catering – and the meeting room booking software makes sure the cleaning and catering teams are aware.

When they arrive, data captured in advance by Rendezvous allows your receptionists to make each guest feel like a VIP. They can then digital signage integrated with the meeting room booking software for efficient wayfinding to their destination.
The software also tracks people density across your estate by integrating with occupancy sensors, ensuring the safety of the working environment.
”Rendezvous was the application of choice for room booking having been successfully used in the US for years. Since the initial global implementation, our scope has expanded and we’ve continued working with NFS to modernise a new building with panel technology and implement hot-desking. The commitment, flexibility and expertise of our consultant has allowed for seamless transitions and I look forward to seeing where this technology takes us in the future.”
