Created to Make People’s Lives Easier and Less Stressful – Roomzilla Story
Roomzilla Story in Short
Like most recent brilliant start-up idea, which proved well in practice, Roomzilla came into being in 2010. Sounds surprising, but it means over 9 years of real, hands-on experience in room management! However, this appointment booking software has been used for recent 20 years. But unlike lots of such companies, it wasn’t created in the Silicon Valley but in Boston, MA. At first this meeting room reservation system was meant to meet the needs of Cambridge Innovation Center, known also as CIC but soon this appointment scheduling software proved itself so well that other companies in Boston and around the city began using it as well. And which is something to really brag about and be proud of, companies using Roomzilla room manager include such stars like MIT’s laboratories and Mass Challenge startup accelerator!
Since then Roomzilla have been continuously spreading its ideas and meeting room scheduling software – at first around the United States and then also across the whole globe. Nowadays, our room booking software is present in 80 cities in 16 countries on 3 continents!
If so, there must be something in Roomzilla’s conference room scheduling system that makes it work so well. What is it?
The main ideas, standing behind Roomzilla meeting room scheduler were simplicity and easiness of use. And this is still the core and the unending quest to manage room booking more efficiently. This is what makes Roomzilla room manager a real invention. It is created to make people’s lives easier and less stressful. Simple as that, but in fact it’s much more complicated than you could imagine.
Probably everyone who worked in larger company, not even mentioning huge corporations, knows the feeling of frustration while trying to use a conference room scheduling system or finding out that their reservation was cancelled in the last time. Or didn’t even appear in the meeting room scheduling software in the first place. Sounds familiar? This was one of the problems Roomzilla had to deal with in the first place – people over-occupying spaces or ‘ghost reservations’. Combined issue of no-shows with people too busy to think about such a small thing.
So, when we are on it, what are the main problems this appointment scheduling software had to solve?
Obviously, such meeting room reservation system was the answer to the problem of companies lacking system to control their office sources. Second of all, some had such system already but it was complicated or inefficient, so the other task was to make this room booking software user-friendly, widely available and shareable and simply easy to use.
The last issue we already talked about – over-occupying spaces, ghost reservations, no-shows in the booked rooms and people, who didn’t remember about their not necessary reservations. Which is usually because of the time management, not just being rude!
And then Roomzilla stepped in.

On the other hand, Roomzilla room booking software also has sound notifications. Business meetings can be really tough and need all your attention and focus.
