Adds More Resource Management Suite Enterprise Scheduling Interfaces and Opens Up Design of Future Interfaces to Developers
LAS VEGAS, Nevada – June 18, 2014 – At InfoComm 2014, AMX®, a HARMAN® Professional brand, furthered its mission to bring advanced meeting room technology to more users in more spaces by announcing two new AMX Resource Management Suite® Enterprise (RMS) native scheduling plug-ins as well as the addition of an RMS Scheduling Application Programming Interface (API). These enhancements expand support for room scheduling to virtually any scheduling system with this users to have more access to simple scheduling of meeting rooms, classrooms or any room being managed by RMS, whether inside a scheduling application, outside a conference room or using a mobile device.
RMS Enterprise is the scalable server- and cloud-based software solution from AMX that provides remote management and scheduling capabilities for AV assets, rooms and building systems. At Integrated Systems Europe 2014, AMX announced Google Calendar as its latest RMS native scheduling plug-in and today also announced support for Microsoft Exchange Web Services 2013 and Microsoft Office 365. Now with a total of five RMS native scheduling plug-ins, meeting room users have a range of premise- and cloud-based scheduling applications to choose from when interfacing with RMS scheduling. They include: Microsoft Exchange® 2010, Lotus Notes® Domino, Google Calendar, Microsoft Exchange Web Services 2013 and Microsoft Office® 365.
AMX agreed that having an RMS scheduling plug-in for any scheduling application on the market, even those not yet developed, would be ideal. Customers using other scheduling systems can now take advantage of the same scheduling capabilities by utilizing the new AMX RMS API. Now, anyone that would like to develop their own plug-in for any third-party scheduling application can build it, using the new RMS API Developer's Guide.
AMX demonstrated the new RMS Enterprise scheduling enhancements in Booth #4908 at InfoComm 2014. The new Microsoft Exchange Web Services 2013 plug-in, Microsoft Office 365 plug-in and RMS API are all expected to be available in the US and globally in July 2014.
