New E-ink Desk Screen, New Hybrid Work Enabler
An efficient desk sharing plan will help businesses thrive in the new hybrid working world. However, it can be difficult to keep up a high utilization rate while also ensuring that everyone can find a seat when they arrive.
That’s where we come in to help! Meet Yeastar E-ink Desk Screen, a new desk booking device to help you effectively introduce hot desking. The e-ink technology is energy efficient, and a desk screen powered by e-ink is perfect for both the environment and your hybrid office.
Yeastar E-ink Desk Screen works in tandem with our desk booking system to display desk status in real time. By scanning the QR code displayed on the screen, employees can book a desk right away and avoid the time-consuming desk hunt. Besides, E-ink Desk Screen and Yeastar Desk Occupancy Sensor are the best combos to optimize space utilization. They will work together to eliminate ghost booking and make sure the availability is always up-to-date.
More Cool New Devices
The ecosystem of Yeastar Workplace is expanding with more cool new devices that are ready to supercharge your workplace.
Yeastar Smart Wall Switch
Yeastar Smart Wall Switch is an IoT-powered wall switch made for modern meeting rooms that will provide a smarter experience while saving energy.
With it, meeting room lighting can be switched on/off remotely as people check in/out. It can also follow your pre-set working hours and will cut the lights off during non-work hours. See its datasheet HERE to learn more about this new device.
Room Display DS7315
You already know Room Display DS7310, which is our best-of-breed meeting room scheduling tool. The DS7315 has the same amazing features as the DS7310 but with a larger screen—a sleek 15.6” touchscreen. In addition to meeting room booking, DS7315 will also make it easier to authenticate user identity or grant entrance access via facial recognition. So if you need a larger screen, just go for DS7315!

More Features to Improve Workplace Flexibility
Meeting Service Upgraded
When booking a meeting room using Yeastar Meeting Room Booking System, staff members can also schedule meeting services like catering and post-meeting cleaning in one stop. We improved this feature in this update to give it more flexibility. Now you can
- Add external contacts to deliver meeting services (For example, a third-party caterer.)
- Allow booking multiple meeting services
- Call meeting services directly via the Yeastar Room display
Meeting Attendee Check-in Count
Attendee Check-in Count is a brand-new feature added to Yeastar Meeting Room Booking System. It’s designed for large-scale conferences or training sessions where the host needs to know how many people have actually shown up and how many did not. There’re two easy ways to count attendance—QR code scan or facial recognition on room displays.
Send iCalendar Schedules as Email Attachments
You will now additionally receive an ICS file as an attachment with the email notification each time you book a meeting room or desk or create a new invite. With it, you can easily import the schedule to your iCalendar, Outlook Calendar, or Google Calendar to enjoy a more seamless experience.
Invite Group Visitors
Now you can create group invites on the Yeastar Visitor Management System. As you click the INVITE button on the top left, you will see a dropdown letting you choose whether you’re inviting an individual visitor or a group visitor.
The best part about this new feature is that you don’t have to register everyone individually if you need to invite a large group of people. Only one key contact (or the group leader) needs to be added to the system, and the rest of the group can register themselves using a registration link. Fast, easy, and hassle-free!
