How many "venues" and "users" do I need?

The price of our web based scheduling software is determined by the maximum number of "venues" you wish to manage, and the maximum number of user accounts required.

Definition of a "venue":

A "venue" is essentially any bookable facility, such as an individual room or space. For example, if you wish to schedule five meeting rooms, three lecture theatres, a sports hall, and a library; the total "venues" you'd be scheduling would equal 10.

Definition of a "user":

A "user" is any person requiring a dedicated login to your scheduling system.

It's important to note that this is not a "per workstation" charge - A user will be able to login to MIDAS from any computer with modern web browser and a network connection to the server where your MIDAS resides.

MIDAS also includes a "public booking request" facility which allows members of the public to check the availability of your venues and make booking requests. As the "public booking request" feature doesn't require a login, use of this feature won't contribute to the total number of users for your MIDAS.

So, if you have a total of five members of staff who will be handling the booking and scheduling of venues at your organization, (or who need to be able to view more extensive booking information to that which is available through the "public" booking request feature), you would need a five user license.

By default, MIDAS allows up to schedule up to 10 venues with a single user account, however, when purchasing you can incrementally increase either of these limits up to "Unlimited" to suit your particular requirements!

NOTE: If you would like to integrate MIDAS with your Active Directory, your MIDAS must be "self hosted" and licensed for "Unlimited" users
