The demand for meeting rooms is growing as we embrace technology that gives us freedom and flexibility to work on our own terms.
London (PRWEB UK) 15 October 2014
MorningStar provides business centre management software to hundreds of executive suite operators in North America. The integration means that operators using MorningStar’s meeting room scheduler can now automatically distribute their meeting room inventory and availability through the meetingrooms.com network in real-time. As a result, customers can book instantly, enabling operators to scale meeting room bookings.
The integration is free to MorningStar customers, and is already being utilised by companies such as Select Office Suites (NY), Quest Workspaces (NY and FL), Crown Office Suites (GA), and many more.
“Our mission is to help people succeed in the new economy. The demand for meeting rooms is growing as we embrace technology that gives us freedom and flexibility to work on our own terms,” says Caleb Parker, CEO meetingrooms.com. “Creating a real-time booking environment, as we’ve done with MorningStar, is a necessary step to meet this demand and deliver positive customer experiences. meetingrooms.com launched in March of this year in private beta with venue partners in 30 countries. Now in public beta, meetingrooms.com has processed bookings in 18 markets across the UK, Ireland and North America. The company will officially launch to end users in a series of global markets in the coming months.
“Providing a global one-stop-shop meeting room reservation solution is another step in our goal to make things easy, convenient and fast for customers,” said Richard Smith, Founder and President of meetingrooms.com.
MorningStar, with offices in Houston, Texas, has been supporting Global Workspace Industry operators in North America for 20 years. The software company’s core invoicing product is complemented by an integration with FEDEX which provides additional revenue to business centres and discounted services to their customers.
“Many of our customers were asking us to connect them to meetingrooms.com,” says Thomas Hurt, CEO of MorningStar. “We had already developed an API so our customers could easily distribute their inventory to third party channels, so it was an easy decision.”
Additional benefits of the integration include global real-time distribution; automated booking process; eliminates human error and double bookings; increased efficiency, and more.
meetingrooms.com is a global marketplace that allows customers to benefit from a global “one-stop-shop” and provides meeting room venues with an additional “pay on performance only” sales channel, to increase meeting room occupancy and revenue. The platform works by matching venue partner vacant meeting rooms with customer needs in real-time. As meeting rooms often sit empty, venue partners benefit by exposing their inventory to a wider customer base than they could on their own through the meetingrooms.com global platform.
meetingrooms.com is powered by Search Office Space, which provides support by way of its infrastructure and a 20 year history of relationships with meeting room venues and customers alike. Both companies were founded by British entrepreneur, Richard Smith, who serves as President of meetingrooms.com and CEO of Search Office Space.
Bookable spaces consist of a variety of professionally appointed board rooms, conference rooms, interview and collaboration spaces, training and seminar rooms across a variety of venue categories such as: Executive Suites, Serviced Offices and Hotels.
