Crestron Fusion

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

Robin

Robin is my benchmark for room displays. It effectively does what it is meant to do without additional fluff. The default theme is more than you'll ever really need, but customization is available. I just really wish there was a simpler way to remove check-in requirements for events. I would always recommend them first for most situations, but my company has a special use case that Robin, or any other competitors for that matter, have not been able to achieve yet.

Pros

Crestron Fusion

  • Fusion is the main infrastructure for the Crestron Ecosystem and a result is a key components
  • It has a decent ui and is easy to group and find assets. We arrange things by classroom.

Robin

  • 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 Fusion

  • 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.

Robin

  • 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.

Excellent timely and accurate responses. Their support section contains thorough and useful guides, alongside an instant chat function that quickly puts you in contact with their team. Their team has never failed to give me exactly the information I need. I am also in regular contact with my representative to go over potential uses and new functions.

Alternatives Considered

Crestron Fusion

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.

Robin

In terms of meeting room booking platforms, I compare Robin to Condeco, which I used previously. Condeco (at the time at least) ran on proprietary hardware, which was a nightmare to manage compared to the ease of use with Robin running on iPads. iPads are easily swapped out and there is lots of flexibility to how they are physically mounted. Condeco screens on the other hand were "licenses" and we were not allowed to stockpile surplus as replacements. They were buggy and often failed so this was a huge problem. Robin has none of these issues and has quickly become the gold standard for meeting room booking management.As for space management, I have used iOFFICE previously, which is more full-featured and robust. Robin is at the very beginning of their roadmap for space management however, so I give them a pass. There is a big cost difference, and since we already use Robin it made more sense to go with the lighter feature set, as opposed to the more expensive app that was more powerful than we currently need.

Return on Investment

Crestron Fusion

  • 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.

Robin

  • Indirectly adds to our overall ROI by reliably securing meeting times, specifically during COVID-19.
  • Also during COVID-19 keeps a coworking space safe. Having activity and control of people in a room is imperative and non-confrontational when it is automatically and safely booked from the comfort of wherever you use Robin.
