A room display is digital signage that provides clear accurate schedules right at the door with Robin's companion app, Rooms. Room displays are great for showing a room’s availability and helps answer the question “Is this room free when I need it?”
Rooms provides additional features like a "check -in" option and abandoned meeting protection to mitigate meeting room “theft” or "ghosted" meetings, which are a common theme in offices.
If you're migrating from another scheduling system, it's important to note that Robin's room display app is designed for ad hoc meetings only. This is intentional, and is one of the ways we help keep your office running smoothly.
Sneak a peek at the Rooms app in action and follow the check list to get started.
