Skip the Room Signs

Installing room signs throughout an organization takes money, time and infrastructure. With our Choros AR space booking platform, you get all the functionality of a room sign without having to buy hardware or worry about how to provide power and network to shared spaces.

Simply set up your spaces in our cloud-based platform, then place QR codes near meeting rooms, desks and other shared places to let people quickly scan to book. Choros overlays options in the camera view using native AR support for smartphone cameras, so you don’t have to coax employees to download any apps or install any software.

Because Choros uses AR tech, space booking is faster than in any software system. It also gives users an immersive experience using a contactless solution. And because there are no room signs or cabling, it saves you significant screen and installation costs, and supports sustainability efforts.

Scan, Book & Go

HOW IT WORKS

Whether you have meeting rooms, use hotdesk booking in a flexible workplace or want to let people reserve the breakroom ping pong table, all it takes is a simple QR code at the space.

Using any Android or iOS smartphone, scan the QR code to see if the space is available or booked. You’ll also see upcoming reservations in that space, capacity, AV resources and amenities. If a space is busy, you can search and book nearby spaces without having to walk around or scan another QR code. You can also see 3D previews of rooms and what’s in them.

Just enter a name, time and an optional four-digit PIN to finish booking a space. Once done, you can easily extend your booking, end it early or cancel it altogether. And the reservation data is immediately shared with your Office 365 or CollegeNET/25Live calendar.

Easy Admin

CLOUD HOSTED

Using our cloud-based admin panel, you can manage your calendar integrations and add licenses for meeting rooms, workspaces and “other” spaces, with custom names and descriptions. Define the building, floor and more.

Let people know what’s in the space so they can choose the right AV tools and amenities for what they need to accomplish. Show icons for meeting rooms like phone, projector, video conference, coffee, etc. Let people booking a workspace see if it has a standing desk, PC or Mac dock, dual monitors, etc. And you can mark all shared spaces that are accessible.

Organize your spaces and users by your own organizational structure, defining organizations and suborganizations to group information for streamlined access and management.


See Availability at a Glance

Choros provides all the scheduling perks of a room sign, and our availability lights let you instantly see which of your meeting rooms and other shared spaces are open (green) or booked (red). These sleek units are small, lightweight and provide 360° visibility.

The Choros platform keeps track of reservation start and end times, and changes availability light colors for Choros bookings made in advance or at the door. The lights are updated by a compact, low-power LoRaWAN® gateway that’s preconfigured to support your availability lights right out of the box.

With a PoE adapter, availability lights can likely be powered by your existing PoE infrastructure. The ultra-low-power lights use a maximum of 0.6 watts of power. Outside of normal hours, they go into standby mode, showing no color and using only .08 watts. This makes them an outstanding option for sustainability and a smart choice for LEED-certified buildings.

Doesn’t Visix Sell Room Signs?

Yes, but we think AR is the future of interacting with shared spaces. It’s a more user-friendly, cost-effective and sustainable approach that can easily be extended to all the shared spaces your organization would like to make bookable. However, if you’d like to combine Choros with room signs in your facility, we’re happy to walk through options with you.
