Optimize real estate utilization with shared workspace, meeting and event scheduling
Organizations with a mobile workforce or flexible work arrangements are realizing significant real estate savings by adopting a hoteling or hot-desking strategy - allotting workspace on an as-needed basis to accommodate more people in less space. EMS Workplace uses interactive floor plans for booking and wayfinding, and advanced reporting capabilities for comprehensive facility operations management.
Powerful facility scheduling system for managing the most complex hoteling requirements, as well as
the booking of meeting/event space and resources.
Includes EMS for Outlook integration for seamless and efficient scheduling.
Highly scalable and versatile, EMS Workplace leverages the power of Microsoft SQL Server™ to track a limitless number of office spaces around the world, allowing them to operate independently or under a unified set of business rules.
Integrated Video Conference Scheduling
EMS Workplace allows for optional EMS/Cisco or EMS/TANDBERG integration for streamlined video conference scheduling. The system allows you to manage the rooms & equipment required for successful video conferences supporting multiple timezones for accurate worldwide scheduling. Download PDF.

Anytime, Anywhere Access
Book a room, check availability or verify a class location using any device, wherever you are! EMS for Outlook and our Virtual for EMS™ web interface ensure scheduling access is available at all times for both students and faculty.
EMS Workplace features back end business intelligence processes including generating benchmarks, measuring actual room utilization and identifying scheduling trends, so you can optimize the use of your office space.
Virtual for EMS
Leverage the power of the internet with this module for EMS Workplace. Virtual for EMS provides fully interactive, real-time access to scheduling information via the internet or your organization's intranet. Website visitors can browse your building schedule
or search for specific events from any computer with an internet browser. Authorized
users (employees in your organization, meeting organizers, facility staff, etc.)
can, depending on the level of access granted, submit room requests or create self-service
reservations directly from the web through a secure, user-friendly interface. See it now!
EMS for Outlook®
Tight integration for maximum efficiency...EMS for Outlook® integration lets users
work within a familiar personal scheduling interface while having one-click access to self-service
room reservation and resource booking functionality in EMS. Ideal for use with "unmanaged" space
(i.e. rooms for which no official approval is required), this time-saving integration prevents double
bookings while letting users find available rooms, review their
details, reserve them and book any necessary resources (equipment, etc.) without ever leaving Microsoft Outlook®.
Includes Microsoft Exchange® Integration (see below). Note: EMS Workplace is licensed for use with Microsoft Outlook.
Microsoft® Exchange Integration
Virtual for EMS can now be integrated with Microsoft Exchange® Server, allowing users
to view the Microsoft Outlook® calendars of people they intend to invite and thereby
simplify the process of meeting planning. This option provides the ability to confirm
attendee availability, find an available room, request services like catering, and
schedule resources like A/V equipment all from one centralized location.
Advanced Visitor Management with Badge Printing
Basic visitor management capability is standard on all Enterprise-level EMS products. This includes the ability to add visitors
through the desktop application or Virtual for EMS, to review entries on a Browse window and to print a Visitor Management report.
Advanced visitor management provides those features plus easy entry of walk-up visitors, visitor list import capability and
badge printing from a default template.
Kiosk for EMS
The Kiosk for EMS is software that turns a touch-screen display unit (purchased from any of a number of manufacturers) into a powerful yet easy-to-use interactive tool for room booking, wayfinding, office hoteling check-in and more.
Pair the Kiosk for EMS with the optional Floor Plan module and give users an added measure of convenience as they see reserved/available space on a facility diagram, making it even easier to find a meeting or a place to hold one!
Floor Plan Module
Adding the Floor Plan module gives Virtual for EMS users (and Kiosk for EMS users, if applicable) an
even more visual way to locate, evaluate and book the reservable space in your facility. Floor
Plans also provide a means of wayfinding to see exactly where a colleague is sitting or a
meeting is taking place.
This module establishes the tightest integration possible between the EMS Web Client or Virtual for EMS and your network or web portal. Integrated authentication works with Microsoft
Active Directory or your custom web portal to streamline web account maintenance
for administrators and eliminate extra steps for end-users.
HR Integration Toolkit
This behind-the-scenes utility keeps contact information in EMS up-to-date, synchronizing
it with another system that contains employee data (HR database, Active Directory, etc.).
This module automates the maintenance of contact names, email addresses, billing
information, web accounts and more including additions, changes and inactivations.
