Crestron Contact: Bob Bavolacco
Director of Technology Partner Programs
MIAMI (July 27, 2023) – Springshare, a leading cloud software vendor for libraries, announced today a set of customized UI screens in LibCal, our calendaring and space reservations solution, designed to seamlessly integrate with Crestron room scheduling panels. The new interface allows patrons to view availability and check in to rooms/spaces via Crestron room scheduling panels mounted in front of the bookable rooms.
“Crestron continues to have a dedicated focus on the Education and Active Learning market,” commented Bob Bavolacco, Director of Technology Partner Programs at Crestron. “It made perfect sense to partner with Springshare to provide our mutual clients a premium hardware solution that supports Springshare’s LibCal Room Reservation application.”
With this integration, library users can:
- View details about a space, pulled from LibCal and displayed directly on the institution’s Crestron room scheduling panels.
- Instantly see whether the space is available, in use, or has a booking starting soon.
- Scan a QR code to book the space via LibCal.
- Check in and check out of their LibCal Space booking on the tablet screen.
"We are always looking to partner with like-minded, innovative vendors so that we can jointly help our libraries succeed," said Slaven Zivkovic, Springshare Founder and CEO. “Partnering with Crestron on the room reservations process enables us to offer a truly seamless spaces booking experience to library users."
