The Facility Scheduler
An advanced solution to maximize your allocation of resources.
Your organization will perform at a higher level by maximizing the use of its facilities with WebTMA's Facility Scheduler. This powerful tool provides you with the ability to effectively manage, utilize, and schedule your organization's valuable resources. You can reserve and schedule rooms, tools, equipment, AV assets, and infrastructure items such as athletic fields and swimming pools.
Initiate reservations with easy-to-use data entry windows. Users have the ability to submit a reservation for a specific item or item category, such as a conference room, and depending on availability, a reservation ticket is created. Most importantly, users are kept fully informed of the reservation status or changes by automatic email updates.
Facility Scheduler has the ability to maintain established rates for hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly rentals. Display holiday schedules and blackout periods on a graphical interface along with bars showing items reserved or rented. WebTMA's chargeback accounting allows rental charges to be charged to internal departments, organizations, external groups, or individuals. In addition, extra charges can be added for repairs and cleaning services. Easy-to-read graphical scheduling calendars will help your staff optimize the usage of your valuable resources.
End-users can easily reserve resources using WebTMA's service request windows. If approval is required, reservations follow a user-definable approval route. Ultimately, reservations are validated and converted into actual reservations with automatic email responses to your reservation requesters.
The Facility Scheduler supports recurring reservations, making it easy to schedule rooms for meetings that occur on a regular basis. Costs can be billed to one or more accounts. Work orders can be generated upon return of items when a return task is specified in the rental preferences.
