Extron has simplified the room booking experience for business environments with Room Agent software, which works with TouchLink touchpanels to create its complete Room Scheduling solution.


While many devices rely on additional scheduling software or external processors, Room Agent ties TouchLink Pro touchpanels directly to Microsoft Exchange, delivering a stand-alone room booking system for any size application.

The system displays a room’s meeting information and occupancy status on a standard TouchLink Pro touchpanel, and users can reserve rooms from any Exchange-connected device including their mobile devices or from the touchpanel itself.

Multiple mounting options are available for the 5- and 7-inch touchpanels including on-wall, in-wall, as well as secure mounting to almost any flat surface, including glass or granite.

“Room Agent software further enhances our TouchLink Pro touchpanels by transforming them into convenient room booking appliances,” says sales and marketing vice president Casey Hall. “Room Agent software is free and makes setting up your touchpanels easy. Once you’ve modified the interface to your liking, users can simply tap the screen to book a room.”

The Extron TLP Pro 520M, 720M, and 720T TouchLink Pro touchpanels can be configured and used as either traditional touchscreen controllers or, using Room Agent setup software, as full-featured room booking appliances.

Key Features

  • Use TouchLink Pro touchpanels for room booking and meeting information display
  • Room Agent software provides easy integration with Microsoft Exchange for convenient scheduling right from Outlook
  • Make on-demand reservations from the touchpanel, computer, or any smart phone or tablet that connects to Microsoft Exchange
  • Two bright LEDs make it easy to see if a room is occupied or available even from down the hall
  • Meeting rooms automatically become available as soon as a scheduled meeting ends
  • Two colour themes, user-provided background images and templates to create custom branding
