I feel trade shows and conferences are perfect for this solution. Having this just to decorate your office is obviously a benefit as well. However, I believe the greatest value in this tool is using it for client/prospect meetings/events. I feel we can really garner their attention with subliminal messaging and showing value propositions that would be specific to that group or person.

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.

  • 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

Usability
PosterBooking
It is easy to enroll displays into your account. After that, all of your content is centrally managed in a browser. Unlike some other services on the market, you don't need to deploy any servers or services on your local network. If you are using the Amazon Firestick implementation option, it automatically boots into that even after power-loss, meaning there's little to worry about once it has been set up, and could be managed from anywhere.

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.

The free version of PosterBooking was more than enough for our organization. Other software looked at we would have needed to pay for.

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
PosterBooking
  • We really did not get the ROI that we COULD have in my opinion. - Didn't use it optimally
  • The technical issues really made us wary of even using it sometimes.
  • I feel this organization has great potential in this product. Just needs to be finetuned,
