Extron just announced the their Room Agent version 1.2 software turns TouchLink Pro touchpanels into full-featured booking appliances that conveniently display a room’s meeting information and availability. With Room Agent, the touchpanels require no programming, as they simply become a client of Microsoft Exchange. In addition to supporting Microsoft Exchange, the latest version of Room Agent software enables integration with Office 365 for additional scheduling convenience. With Room Agent, booking a room from the touchpanel is as easy as tapping the “Reserve” button. The customizable touchpanel interface also provides at-a-glance room availability and a timeline view of the room’s status for the rest of the day. In addition to the customizable touchpanel interface, bright LEDs within the bezel provide at-a-glance room availability status even from down the hall.
Room Agent makes setting up TouchLink Pro touchpanels a snap. Simply connect the touchpanel to your computer, open the software, fill in the required fields that compose the user interface, and you’re done. Customization options allow fields to be shown or hidden, depending on user preference. Multiple mounting options are available, including on-wall, in-wall, as well as secure mounting to almost any flat surface, including glass or granite.
