BookingPOINT overview

BookingPOINT a much-loved room and equipment booking system designed specifically for universities, schools and colleges. BookingPOINT allows you to take control of your room bookings and equipment loans like never before.

Clean, easy to use, beautiful

With a beautiful modern and clean interface, using BookingPOINT is a pleasure. The interface is intuitive and easy to understand, you’ll be a pro in no time.

Time & Day bookings

Book resources by time or by day - e.g. for 1 hour or for 2 days. You can set up which resources can by booked by time, which can be booked overnight, or both.

On-line Bookings

Allow borrowers to book resources on-line at their convenience from anywhere they please. Save time not having to manually book rooms on their behalf - you’ve got better things to do.

iPad Admin Access

Go mobile! Admin users can access the desktop version of BookingPOINT via an iPad.

Reminder Emails & SMS’s

Send automated reminders emails and SMS’s to remind borrowers when their resources are due back, when they have accrued demerit points for late returns, when they have been suspended for too many late returns etc.

Auto Suspensions

Auto-suspend borrowers once they reach a specified number of demerit points to discourage late return of equipment.

Extend Bookings

Allow on-line borrowers to extend their own bookings on the day they are due back if no one else has booked the same resource. Choose which borrowers can and can’t extend their own bookings.

Checkout Without prior Booking

Checkout resources on the fly, even without a prior booking. Simply specify the resources you want to checkout at time of pickup to allocated them to a borrower.

Reporting Tools

With expensive reporting tools, you’ll have all the information you’ll ever need right at your fingertips. Make better, more informed decisions.

Servicing Equipment

Schedule equipment to be booked out for service at a future date. Automatically notify users that the resource they booked is no longer available and will be in for service.

Open / Active Directory

Use your existing Open Directory / Active Directory accounts to externally authenticate borrowers. No need to manage a different set of user names and passwords - users can log on with their existing credentials.

Barcode Scanners

Use a barcode scanner to swipe student cards or to check items in and out of stock. Any barcode scanner will work with BookingPOINT as long as it works with your operating system.


BookingPOINT is not your typical off-the-shelf product. We can customise BookingPOINT to meet your exact needs. If BookingPOINT doesn’t quite fit your requirements, then let us know and we can customise it for you. Alternatively, you may purchase a Developer License and customise it yourself.

Version: 5.0.4
Actually it is a study in the advanced use of Filemaker Pro. The persons have made an exemplary work for whoever wants to deepens in the possibilities Filemaker. It is a respectable work with a duration of 30 days. If the authorisation of use lasted indefinitely, sure it would have become the free standard for the all professionals of tourism etc. Those of us who are not in position to appreciate the effort for this particular program, they will feel grateful for the free tools the developers offer into the site with the “cost” of one simple Like in Facebook. Respect.

Well, I'm certainly not going to demo an app that I've got to fill out a pricing request just to find out what they are charging for it!
