MIDAS Software Features
Some of the powerful features of our MIDAS Room Booking system include...
Venue "Blocking" allows you to prevent bookings in certain spaces whilst certain other spaces have bookings ongoing. Ideal if you have rooms that can be either be booked in their entirety or sub-divided into smaller bookable spaces
Schedule Recurring Bookings
Easily schedule repeat bookings for multiple dates, and across multiple rooms in one go. You can also book rooms continuously between two dates
Send Bookings To Your External Calendar
Quickly send bookings from MIDAS to your external email software's calendar (Outlook/Thunderbird) with just a single click
Clear & Crisp Web Interface
Our room scheduling software has a clean and clear interface. Easily see all relevant booking information at a glance on one screen without any clutter. There's also a range of visual themes available to customize the look of MIDAS
With MIDAS you can maintain a line of credit for each of your clients. Any outstanding credit will then be applied to their next invoice
Print bookings for a single date, or date range, and filter which rooms or booking types to include. You can also print details of individual client's bookings over a custom date range. In the event of an emergency you can instantly print out the estimated number and location of people currently on your site!
"Tentative" Booking Types
Setup "tentative" (provisional) bookings. These auto expire if not confirmed within a time frame after being added or before the booking is due to start
Expand your MIDAS software by running multiple online scheduling databases from one single interface. This is ideal if you have multiple business locations, as you can setup a separate database for each!
Bookable Time "Slots"
By default, users specify both a Start and Finish time for their bookings. However, you can replace this (on a per user basis) with a drop-down list of predefined time slots instead. This makes MIDAS ideal for organizations with structured days, such as in schools.
Easy To DeployBecause the software is entirely web based, there is nothing to install on every computer or workstation! This makes MIDAS very easy to roll out to your entire organization whatever its size!
Make Clients Tax Exempt
Set individual clients to be "tax exempt" in the system. Generated invoices for clients marked as tax exempt will not include a tax element
Accept Public Booking RequestsAccept booking requests through your website! Allow your visitors to check current room availability and submit booking requests online for your approval
Day, Multi-Day, Week & Monthly Views
View your room scheduling in a day-by-day view, a multi-day view, or in a Monthly overview
Optional two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to MIDAS. When enabled and a user logs in, they are sent a unique code by email which they then enter in order to complete their log in
More than a dozen different templates can be customized in MIDAS - including email, invoice, and print templates. Templates can contain HTML, so it's easy to include your own text, images and links within your templates
