Exciting News from JDR Software! Introducing Rooms Plus – your ultimate ad-hoc resource booking solution!

Whether you’re a staff member, a dedicated student, or even a member of the public, Rooms Plus empowers users to book any resource needed effortlessly. From rooms to assets, equipment to instruments and everything in between – as defined by the institution – our intuitive online platform ensures seamless booking from your PC, tablet or smartphone.

The newest addition to JDR Software’s innovative suite of solutions, Rooms Plus joins forces with Allocate Plus and Schedule Plus. Making the PLUS Suite the premier integrated suite of products offering institutions a unified timetabling journey. From planning to scheduling to class attendance, and now room booking, our integrated suite ensures efficiency and ease every step of the way.

Rooms Plus delivers a user-friendly interface to empower your staff, students and external stakeholders to book and request locations, equipment and anything else the institution wants to set up as a bookable resource.

Rooms Plus provides a solution designed to replace the majority of ad-hoc booking systems that institutions employ, resulting in reduced costs and simplified processes. From event management to student-shared spaces, shared equipment to bespoke institution resources, booking desks per hour or specific equipment in a room, Rooms Plus caters to every booking need imaginable.

With Rooms Plus, administrators can step back as users gain the autonomy to book venues directly. Plus, customisable rules ensure smooth sailing around location bookings (such as maximum volumes, approval requirements etc.). Tailored rules for specific user groups – such as staff and students – further enhance control and efficiency.

Rooms Plus also allows the institution to include teaching and non-teaching spaces. This supports the ability to book desks, equipment, car parks, cars – you name it, each with its own rules and permission profiles without compromising the institution’s timetable.

Here’s what makes Rooms Plus stand out:
  1. Intuitive Interface: Rooms Plus boasts a user-friendly interface that makes navigation a breeze. Designed for seamless usability, eliminating multiple complex tools.
  2. Device agnostic: Access anywhere, anytime! Rooms Plus adapts effortlessly to any device. Empowering your students, staff and even externally authenticated users to book resources on the go, whether from a desktop or mobile phone.
  3. Comprehensive Features: From single faculties to multiple campuses, or equipment borrowing, Rooms Plus has you covered. Enjoy robust features like user permissions and access control.
  4. Automation and Efficiency: Tired of having to contact an administrator each time you need to book a facility? Rooms Plus allows users to book any resource directly that the institution would like to make available, in an automated and efficient way.
  5. Underlying Workflow: Empower departments with control! Rooms Plus allows users to make a booking but also offers the administrator the capability to approve the booking. This means that departmental-owned resources can determine who gets to book their resources.
  6. Linking of Images: Visualize resources with ease! Rooms Plus allows the institution to link images and attributes of the resource.
  7. Multiple Resources: Rooms Plus enables users to book multiple resources in a single request. Meaning that users can, for example, book a room, musical instrument and tutor in a single transaction, simplifying booking complexities.
  8. Allocation of Costs: Rooms Plus will allow the institution to associate a cost rate for the use of the resource, allowing the institution to charge for the use of the resource.
  9. Customisable Solutions: We understand that every university has unique needs. That’s why Rooms Plus is a fully customisable solution, designed to suit your specific needs.
  10. Outstanding Support: At JDR Software, we’re committed to providing top-notch support to our clients. Whether you have a question, need assistance, or want to provide feedback, our dedicated team is here to help, ensuring a seamless experience from start to finish.
