Manage your meeting rooms' resources
and know if they’re costing you more than they’re worth
“Guys, we have a coffee problem. It’s too expensive… and it’s driving this company in the ground!” - that’s something you’ll probably never hear in a cutting-costs meeting. But do you honestly know how much coffee costs you?
Well, you could. If you used YArooms.
Next up, go to Manage > Locations and set up your office’s whereabouts. If your company has offices in many timezones, be sure to edit them accordingly. Here’s what this section looks like on my demo account (it’s called Potato Factory):

My reports look like this:
As you can see above, you can filter what information you want displayed by customizing your columns.
Based on my report, I can tell that my resources have cost me well over 300 units over the last 3 days. There's some profit there, but if I wanted to cut costs, I'd know where to start investigating.
