Considering a Room Booking System in Excel?

excel room booking system

If you answered yes to that question...


Excel is a spreadsheet application - it was never designed or intended to be used as a fully-fledged room booking system!

Let's face it, you wouldn't use a word processor as a calculator, or a graphics program to write your weekly shopping list, so why would you want to use a spreadsheet application for handling your room bookings?!

Yet we find that a surprising number of small businesses try and do just that!

However, those who have downloaded an excel room booking system template, or who've attempted to create a meeting room booking system in Excel themselves, soon discover that a spreadsheet is severely limited when it comes to effectively managing their room bookings and resource scheduling.

The solution? ... MIDAS!
