  • Outlook - allows other endpoint users to submit reservation requests to us through their preferred platform
  • Room Sign App - we are in process of installing digital signage that will eliminate daily printing of room cards and eventually allow for check-in and walk-up reservation features
  • Collegiate Link - we have faith and hopes to eventually work to integrate a 3rd party reservation form to link in with the EMS Web App reservation intake system

  • We have looked in to the use of digital signage, but it is quite expensive so that was put on hold.
  • We do use EMS with Outlook. As soon as I reserve a room, I can email a confirmation with ease. I can also add meetings to my outlook calendar if necessary.

  • EMS Room Sign app - It allows for last-minute scheduling/drop-in meetings (without services) for users to reserve space without having to contact conference scheduling. The information then populates into our desktop client and notifies the CS team that a meeting has been scheduled in a particular room. It also allows users to see if a space is available without making a call. Cuts down on the number of calls between users and our scheduling team.

  • Outlook integration: the EMS Outlook plug-in is very convenient for our end users to book rooms and send out calendar details in an integrated place.
  • Zoom integration: the Zoom integration ability is a plus, especially in this pandemic environment where most of our users are working from home and utilize Zoom for daily conferencing.

  • Outlook: Most of our administrative assistants like to create a meeting in Outlook where they can see the invitees availability and also compare with room availability in EMS. The integration allows them to do both at the same time from within the Outlook interface.
  • Web Browsers: Users can use Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer to access the web version of EMS to book meeting rooms.

  • We plan to integrate EMS Software with digital signage (through Four Winds) for dynamic display of room schedules; this will enhance patron experience.
  • We plan to integrate EMS Software with Outlook for greater user convenience across our campus.
  • We may integrate EMS Software with Localist (a web-based comprehensive calendar product) for improved promotion of events on and beyond our campus.
  • Future integration with OrgSync/Campus Labs (student organization database) and AMAG (door security devices) is also a possibility.

  • Workday - we use the HR Toolkit to pull in faculty/staff and their departments /account number. We use Workday for HR and Finance Operations. We used Banner for these operations previously. We are currently trying to fix a few errors in the transition from Banner to Workday and its effect on the HR Tookit integration.
  • Banner - we still use banner for the academic import of classes into EMS.
  • ModoLabs - we pull events in Modo Labs for faculty/staff/students so they can go to one mobile place to see events for each day.

  • We were able to link EMS on to our digital signage kiosks. NO MORE using easels and blackboards for signs. So much more professional and cleaner. Clients LOVE IT
  • We were also able to link EMS into our master calendar. Client would be able to book space for their event and information would be displayed on our Buinsess campus wide calendar. Great way to advertise your event.

  • 7Point Solutions- This manages all of our operations staff workflow. It pushes event information and diagrams out of ems and allows our students access to it via mobile.
  • Digital signage. This allows us to control what is displayed in the building in real time and we are not locked to updating schedules via paper any time a change is made.
