Vision moves into room booking area

Vision has launched a product aimed squarely at the room booking segment, called Freespace, it is a 'locked down' Android tablet with an app pre-loaded.

It mounts on a wall outside the meeting room and shows bookings for that room or any other room in the building. One device can service one room or a cluster of rooms.

Users needing to find an available room within a building can walk up to the nearest Freespace to find and book an available room.

Freespace works with Microsoft Exchange Server and all setup is done in Exchange overcoming push-back from network administrators who don’t want to load foreign software on their system.

An image area on the screen shows scrollable images such as company logo, promotional offers, or room images – whatever the end user needs, and images can be deployed centrally. 

The device can use Bluetooth to log occupancy of room(s) for reporting.
