Davinci Virtual has done it again. Davinci Virtual is already a leading player in the on-demand office solutions market. Now, it’s making moves to compete in the meeting space market.

Specifically, Davinci Virtual has launched a new Web-based reservation platform that aims to make booking conference rooms and meeting spaces as quick and easy as purchasing office supplies from Quill.com.You can find the new system at DavinciMeetingRooms.com. The Web site will give you immediate access to meeting spaces within the Davinci Virtual stock that match your specific business needs, including size, location, and technical requirements.

“We think our clients and the business community will really benefit from the speed and efficiency of this service,” said Bill Grodnik, President and CEO of Davinci Virtual. “A process that used to be time-consuming and cumbersome can now be accomplished in a few minutes. Our customers will now find meetings easy to plan and affordable to host.”

Streamlining Meeting Room Selection

When you consider that Davinci Meeting rooms offers more than 2,000 meeting spaces in metropolitan areas around the world, you can see why the new Web-based reservation system is a must have. But when you consider the bells and whistles that you can add to the meeting room experience Davinci offers the need becomes even more apparent. In addition to choosing the prime office building in the city of your choice, for example, you can also choose add-on services like LCD projectors, videoconferencing, catering, and business support services. DavinciMeetingRooms.com promise to reduce the cost and effort of researching and negotiating meeting room options and responds to a growing, global workforce. I think Davinci accomplishes its goal with the new system.

A First-Hand Experience

I took it for a whirl this morning. It’s got a user-friendly interface that asks you the standard questions: city, state, zip, country, and date and hours required, as well as the radius in which you are willing to travel to get to the meeting room. I typed in Hallandale Beach, offered a five-mile radius, and asked for meeting space today between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Short notice, I know. But we’re testing the metal here. Wouldn’t you know it? They offered me two solutions. The Hollywood Florida Business Center and the Hollywood Business Center. Prices started at $15 an hour for a day office and I was given all the details I could handle, as well as directions. I like the straightforward pricing. An LCD projector cost me $46.75 an hour, but a dry erase board is free. A network connection cost me $13.50, but a wireless connection is free. Secretarial service cost me $46.75 an hour – wow – and a notary is $9.50. In short, I can get access to everything I would need to hold a meeting for two or up to 60. and it only took about three minutes to make the reservation.
