Handles Repeat Bookings Easily
ResSched handles many types of repeat booking
easily. It even lets you schedule bookings that occur irregularly.
Save valuable staff time.
Resources for Easy Scheduling and Viewing
Resources can be grouped together for easy scheduling and viewing.
View the bookings of all the resources in a group in a single graphic
schedule. Select resources from a group rather than the whole list
of resources. Or add all the resources of a group to a booking with
just a couple of clicks. A resource group can have any number of resources
and a resource can be part of any number of groups, so you have complete
flexibility. Some examples of groups would be: all rooms of a certain
size, all the technicians with a specific skill, or all the equipment
needed to do a particular task. Resources groups save a lot of time
in scheduling and make it easier to manage utilization.
Schedules Based on Multiple Criteria on the Fly
In addition to regular resource groups, ResSched also lets you create
Meta groups as you need them. A meta group is a temporary resource
group composed of the resources of other resource groups. You can
choose whether the resources in the meta group must be in all of the
source resource groups, or just in any one of them.
Graphic and Text Schedule Output
ResSched provides a wide variety of graphic schedule displays that
lets you see 'at a glance' the schedules of individual resources,
resource groups, or clients. Or use the text based schedules to get
detailed booking information. Minimize confusion and time spend finding
out what is booked when and respond quickly to customer scheduling
and Conflict Checking
ResSched does a complete check any new or changed bookings to ensure
that it does not conflict with any bookings already made. Even before
it does the conflict check, you can select from just those resources
that are available at the specified time when making a booking. Avoid
costly double bookings and reduce the time required to schedule.
View Only Users Option
With the unlimited View only option, all staff can see what is booked
when. Free your schedulers from endless questions about availability.
Unlike some other scheduling software, ResSched lets you schedule
and do conflict checks on pooled resources. Pooled, or inventoried,
resources are those resources that you manage as a pool, not as individual
units, e.g., stacking chairs and folding tables. You don't want to
schedule them individually, but you need to know that you haven't
ResSched lets you control exactly which users or groups of users can
book or view which resources. You can also limit some users to only
making reservations subject to administrator confirmation
Use your organization's terms for resources, bookings, clients in
ResSched windows and calendars.
and Routine Entries
If you usually make one type of booking, use one resource, have
one client (or no client), you can make those entries default values
that are entered automatically when you start a new booking. Or
select from a list of routine bookings and durations that you have
created. Save time and effort.
