The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) Has Selected Nfs Technology Group’s Rendezvous Meeting Room Booking Software to Enable the Efficient Management of Meeting Rooms, Catering and Av Equipment Across Its Two Uk Office Facilities.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) provides national guidance and advice to improve health and social care across the UK.
With its headquarters based in London, NICE has recently opened new offices in Manchester, prompting the search for a new meeting room booking system to enable the efficient management of over 40 meeting rooms across the multi-site locations, to optimise space utilisation for staff and visitors.
The decision to use NFS’ Rendezvous meeting room booking system was its proven ability to integrate into existing systems and offer enhanced scheduling relative to using Microsoft Outlook calendars, for meeting rooms and services like catering and AV.
NFS also provided an advanced custom-built room signage and panel solution to present highly visible information in terms of room usage and meetings taking place with the ability to book rooms and extend meetings at room level.
Says Luis De Souza, CEO of NFS Technology: “Give the critical role that NICE plays in the approval of new treatments delivered by the NHS, efficient meeting support is critical. NICE has recognized the importance of both achieving good space utilisation and having the right technology to support efficient room booking and a great visitor experience.
“With the new office facilities, Rendezvous offers a simple and efficient way of booking meeting rooms across both locations, alongside accommodating catering and associated services to provide great reporting on meeting room usage.
“The seamless integration with Microsoft Outlook will also be beneficial as staff at the organization will be working within a familiar environment. The adoption by NICE of a state-of-the-art room booking system demonstrates the importance of technology to deliver a great meeting experience and maximise the use of high cost meeting space within the healthcare sector.”
Overall the technology can serve to help ensure NICE can continue to serve those who rely on the NHS for their care.”
