ISE 2019 (Integrated Systems Europe) was a big show for Crestron with the launch of its next-gen DM NVX and coming-out party for its FLEX UCC products, but not to be left out of the spotlight was its expanded Crestron Room Scheduling Platform.
New hardware additions (including two new scheduling panels in 5-inch portrait and 5-inch landscape) that continue the line’s integration with Microsoft Exchange Server, Office 365, and G Suite software and software enhancements such support for Gingco, NFS, SpaceConnect, and SharingCloud scheduling software and improved support for Teem, Robin, Appspace, EMS, and Zoom Rooms software, gave Crestron a lot to discuss.
Nic Milani, executive director, commercial product marketing, Crestron, chatted with Commercial Integrator about the expanded Crestron Room Scheduling platform.
“All these options free up the customer to choose the hardware independently of the software application,” he said.
“As an integrator that means the folks that you work with day in and day out, the people responsible for the hardware, can choose the hardware with confidence and change the application overtime.”

Added to existing support for Teem®, Robin®, Appspace®, EMS, and Zoom Rooms™ software, the Crestron platform now supports a total of nine partner scheduling applications.
“Crestron is the first and only scheduling hardware that not only works directly with the most popular services, but also runs third-party applications natively,” said Nic Milani, Executive Director, Commercial Product Marketing at Crestron.
“Our partners have chosen us because of our robust hardware platform, exceptional warranty, and superior 24/7 performance to consumer tablets.”
Flexible and secure platform
Crestron offers the right solution to reserve rooms, with a range of secure, enterprise-grade, PoE touch screens to suit every application. They leverage the latest network security standards and are easily deployed and managed via the Crestron XiO Cloud™ service.
Crestron also offers customers and dealers the unique benefit of being able to decouple scheduling hardware from the software application, which enables them to purchase hardware that meets their immediate needs, while evolving over time.
