Meeting Room Utilization
“Room utilization”, which is also referred to as “space utilization,” “facility utilization,” or more generically as “resource utilization,” is a measure of operational effectiveness that figures prominently in several industries, but is of special significance in:
Some practices play a role in room utilization. The first is optimizing room utilization – ensuring that meetings are taking place in rooms of the appropriate size, that meetings and events are distributed across your rooms so no space is over/underused, etc. The second is to minimize no-shows so that space that could be used isn’t left empty. And then facility utilization reporting lets you document room utilization.
