Microsoft Outlook can be set-up to utilize calendars as meeting rooms, to manage space bookings. You can integrate this with a dedicated room booking system such as Condeco meeting room booking for additional booking services.

With the Condeco Outlook Add-in, you can allow room searches, services, visitors and video conference bookings to be made from within the Outlook calendar. Users can make the appointment in MS Outlook and invite appropriate attendees. By clicking on the room booking icon in the appointment window, they’re able to search for a room and book it right there and then.

Condeco Sync for Microsoft Exchange gives you the ability link meeting rooms in Microsoft Exchange with rooms in Condeco meeting room booking and have them stay in sync with each other. Condeco Sync monitors both calendars and automatically synchronizes any bookings made, edited or deleted.

The Room Finder for Outlook enables you to quickly find available rooms in Exchange and invite them to your appointment in Outlook. The room booking is then synced back to Condeco using the Condeco Sync Exchange integration.
