The Crestron Fusion software is best for a site that has a Crestron Programmer onsite to configure and maintain said system. It works well but needs to have someone keep up on changes or additions. Any environment where you don't have a Crestron expert onsite could be cost prohibitive, as your data would be inaccurate after every upgrade, unless you built the cost into the upgrade

There is an option in our office to use a tablet outside of a meeting room to book a room (which is red when booked, green when not), and not sure if this is a Robin integration, but it would be great if there was a yellow for when there is 5 minutes left of a meeting. That being said, while this is super helpful, I see coworkers running around the office looking for a "green" room; and recommend they just use the Robin web app to avoid all the running around since they can view and book almost instantly!

  • The integration to GSuite calendars is fantastic. Very simple and straightforward.
  • The ability to customize the interface a very nice feature to have in Robin, as it offers you to allow the UI to reflect the vibe/brand of your company, and not force its own brand on you.

Cons
Crestron Electronics
  • It requires a lot of understanding to set up for metrics. You really have to put what you want to measure into the code of each room so it can report back. It is cumbersome to add in a new metric.
  • It just seems like it can be easier to have the equipment autopopulate and do standard reporting and control without having to build each of it for each piece of equipment.

  • Sometimes the Robin app on iPad loses Wi-Fi connectivity for a few seconds (Wi-Fi is 100% working) but reconnects itself - no big deal
  • Sometimes Robin Slack bot won't respond back to "what's available" but 99% it works ok
  • The earlier version of iPad app drained batter too quickly (it didn't save brightness setting) which was fixed and now works well

Robin's UI is very well designed and modern which makes it a pleasure to use. Personally this a big factor for me enjoying a product and so I'm always happy to use Robin - moreover as a relatively new user the UI was quite quick to pick-up, whether that be using the online system or the Display app for rooms around the office.

Envoy support has always been a joy to work it, whether you're going through the dashboard chat, or through your rep. I feel that they always have your success as their priority and it makes me confident that they'd be able to help overcome any obstacles.

At the time Crestron fusion was the only software that would integrate well with the Crestron systems. Since we are fully Crestron site we needed a program that would help us to maintain and monitor all things Crestron.

I haven't used any software like Robin. Other places I worked required an archaic way of doing things...like using pen and paper and a calendar book. Robin is sooo much better. I don't know how large companies make do reserving spaces without it. I would recommend Robin to anyone.

Return on Investment
Crestron Electronics
  • Fusion has helped us make decisions on what types of equipment is being used in each room. It helped us eliminate parts not being used and saving us money in design and supportability.
  • It has also helped us in that each morning we scan for what systems need attention. This has helped us create a much higher uptime.
