An easy-to-use room booking system that helps co-working facilities work by making sharing office space easier has been launched by Evoko - and taken up by a new space in Tennessee.

Hot on the launch, R&R Properties has chosen Evoko's Liso system for Ts117, R&R's brand new co-working facility which provides 30,000sq.ft flexible co-working facility in Oak Ridge, Tennessee - a first of its kind in the region.

With the co-working trend booming globally to accommodate employees being more mobile and spread out than ever before, having the right tools to manage the shared space is essential in accommodating this new office culture. With Evoko Liso, users can simply walk up to a room, instantly see its current and future availability and book it right there and then.

“What makes Ts117 popular is its ability to serve more irregular drop-in users. To make it work, however, we needed the booking and management of meeting spaces to be as quick and effortless as possible” explained Katina Ramsey, Community Manager at Ts117.

A room booking manager is a necessity at modern offices today. Particularly at co-working facilities with constantly changing tenants, having a central booking system is what keeps the show running. Evoko Liso is designed with this open architecture in mind, allowing anyone to use the system without requiring integration with a particular external booking system. It provides users with the flexibility to book a room via a digital calendar of choice, on a bespoke mobile application or directly on the screen of the Evoko Liso hardware.

“A key feature we wanted to deliver with Evoko Liso was its ease-of-use. People need to fit a lot into their eight or so hours of work each day. We feel that finding and booking meeting spaces should be the least of their worries” said Richard Glückman, CEO of Evoko.
