Citing recent reports, Panasonic India’s System Solutions Division’s Director Vijay Wadhawan said that the meeting room management market in India is growing at a CAGR of 19% and is estimated to reach a value of $31.6 million by FY 2024.

“With offices reopening after the pandemic, a new generation of employees entering the market, and the growing need for agile technology among businesses, collaboration and communication solutions are a key element to optimize customer experience and drive productivity,” added Wadhawan.

“Our RoomBook Plus solution is easy to deploy, manage, and use that suits the needs of today’s modern workspaces, allowing easier communication, increasing meeting room efficiency, and delivering sustainable solutions. Our objective is to provide customised solutions that combine the right hardware, software, and wireless capabilities to our clients to enable them offer a great experience to the end customers,” stated Wadhawan.

RoomBook Plus is a Meeting Room Scheduler which is a flexible, secure, and easy-to-use solution that helps in the optimisation and efficient management of meeting rooms. MRMS’ hardware functionality is based on the energy-efficient technology by E Ink, which makes the solution unrivalled in terms of adaptability, ease of installation and usage, and ultra-low power consumption, making it a sustainable offering.

“We use a similar technology in our Eletronic Shelf Label (ESL) range which has been designed to increase operational efficiencies for retailers and enterprises; while driving the sustainability agenda. The devices are completely cordless and can be attached to any surface, even glass; without tools, bolts or brackets,” said Johnson Lee, CEO of E Ink.

“We are excited to work with Panasonic to bring sustainable displays into the workspace. E Ink is known for our low power, eco-friendly displays – in a comparison of the electricity consumed by 30 million 10-inch ePaper signage and 30 million 10-inch LCD signage used worldwide for continuous use over five years, the CO2 emissions saved is 12,000 times that of an LCD. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Panasonic to develop more sustainable products and solutions,” added Lee.

The MRMS solution seamlessly connects over Wi-Fi and is interoperable with mailing systems such as Outlook 365, Microsoft Exchange, G Suite and iCalendar allowing organisers to book a meeting or conference room with their existing desktop calendar or mobile phone. It’s integrated with the calendar to ensure easy scheduling and booking of meetings, conference rooms, or huddle spaces with a simple click.

Further, its offers real-time notification updates and automatically makes the room available, if the organiser cancels the meeting. The RoomBook Plus solution simplifies common but significant concerns such as utilizing unattended rooms, avoiding frequent interruptions during meetings, and optimising room scarcity and availability concerns. It also provides meeting room analytics used for hot desking to drive space efficiency at workplaces.
