Centralized Facility Reservations
Centralized facility reservations, where all space requests are reviewed and approved/denied by a central scheduling authority (an individual or department), is one end of the scheduling process spectrum. EMS products provide all the tools a central scheduling office needs to book rooms, reserve resources and coordinate meeting/event-related services.
At the other end of the spectrum is a fully self-service scheduling environment, where people either have access to EMS on their own computer or use Virtual for EMS™, smart phones, touch screen displays or other access methods to book their own rooms, resources, etc. without any approval process. Here too, EMS provides all the functionality a self-service operation needs to work effectively.
Most organizations utilize a combination of the two approaches. For example, smaller rooms that typically are used for simple events might be available to reserve in self-serve mode, where larger rooms that hold more complex events (with catering, equipment, etc.) might only be available through the reservations office.
