iLab’s resource scheduling platform provides an intuitive click-and-drag interface for creating reservations. The robust platform can also be configured to manage complex usage rules, depending on various workflow requirements. 

The iLab resource schedules include extensive feature options, such as:

  • Set available hours, min/max reservation length, and limit when users can create or edit reservations
  • Set varied pricing depending on time of day or type of usage
  • Choose to require facility approval on reservations for additional oversight
  • Manage user training qualifications and control scheduling access based on training status
  • Track usage "passively" though use of iLab's Equipment Usage Tracking application
  • Compare scheduled time to actual time
  • Bill for scheduled time, actual time, or a combination
  • Capture per-unit charges (e.g. per sample, per plate) in addition to, or instead of, hourly rates
  • Manage equipment details and pricing without IT support
