Crestron Expands Best-in-Class Room Scheduling Platform

At ISE 2019, Crestron, a global leader in workplace technology, showcased the latest hardware and software additions to its best-in-class room scheduling platform. Two new scheduling panels – 5″ portrait and 5″ landscape – are now available, along with an optional room availability light bar. Like all Crestron scheduling panels, they connect directly to a Microsoft® Exchange Server®, Office 365®, and G Suite® software, and provide branding and customization options up to HTML5. Also debuting at ISE 2019 is support for Gingco, NFS, SpaceConnect, and SharingCloud® scheduling software. Added to existing support for Teem®, Robin®, Appspace®, EMS, and Zoom Rooms software, the Crestron platform now supports a total of nine partner scheduling applications.

“Crestron is the first and only scheduling hardware that not only works directly with the most popular services, but also runs third-party applications natively,” said Nic Milani, Executive Director, Commercial Product Marketing at Crestron. “Our partners have chosen us because of our robust hardware platform, exceptional warranty, and superior 24/7 performance to consumer tablets.”

Flexible and secure platform

Crestron offers the right solution to reserve rooms, with a range of secure, enterprise-grade, PoE touch screens to suit every application. They leverage the latest network security standards and are easily deployed and managed via the Crestron XiO Cloud service.

Crestron also offers customers and dealers the unique benefit of being able to decouple scheduling hardware from the software application, which enables them to purchase hardware that meets their immediate needs, while evolving over time.
