The conferencing activities include 38 en-suite bedrooms and 21 meeting spaces accommodating 10 to 400 people for year round letting, together with dining for events, and letting out student accommodation and university meeting spaces out of term time. An operation this complex needs flexible and powerful software, and Edinburgh wanted to be able to manage, view and control all of its activities from one source.
