Work on the latest feature-rich update to our web based room booking and resource scheduling, MIDAS, is nearing completion, and so we’re excited to reveal some of these exciting new and improved features first here on our blog…

As you may be aware, MIDAS is capable of generating a wealth of printable reports, graphs, and statistics allowing you to gain valuable insight into the state of your bookings, venues, clients, invoices, and more.

The Invoicing section of this reporting allows you to see which clients or organizations have been invoiced over any given period, how much has been paid, and how much remains outstanding.

For MIDAS v4.15 we’re improving this reporting to also include an “Un-invoiced Bookings Report”. This new report shows a breakdown of the number of bookings each client/organization has over a given period which have so far not been invoiced for. This is a great way to quickly check whether you’re forgotten to invoice a particular client/organization.

This week marks 10 years since the very first public and commercial release of our Web Based Room Booking and Resource Scheduling software, MIDAS, back in 2006. As well as celebrating our longevity, we’re also very proud of the fact that a decade on, our software remains in active development with new and improved features being regularly added!

To that end, MIDAS v4.12 is on the horizon, and over the coming blog posts, we’re giving you a first look at some of the new features and improvements you can look forward to in the next MIDAS update..

The first new feature of v4.12 we’d like to unveil is a brand-new “Current Availability” report:

Current Availability Report
Current Availability Report

Arising from customer suggestions of being able to see an “overview” of the current and forecast availability of your venues “at a glance”, the new Current Availability, provides just that!

The report analyses each venue to determine is current status. If a venue is presently “available”, MIDAS will check to see when it’s available until (i.e. when the next booking takes place). If a venue isn’t presently available, MIDAS will check to see when it’s next available.

The results for all venues are then amalgamated into a single easy-to-read “Current Availability” report, which can also be printed.

The Current Availability report is just one of over a dozen real-time reports and statistics that MIDAS can generate. For more information, please see: https://mid.as/help/statistics

Finally, as we mentioned at the top of this article, it’s been 10 years since the first release of MIDAS, and there’s still time to enter our epic giveaway to celebrate – head on over to https://mid.as/giveaway – for you chance to WIN a FREE Cloud-Hosted edition of MIDAS, or your share of $1,000 worth of discounts off our software (including upgrades, addons, and subscription renewals)

MIDAS v4.12 is expected to be made available to Beta Testers later this month, with a general release shortly after. We’re currently looking for additional testers to help test and provide feedback/bug reports on pre-release versions of our software. Becoming a tester is free and no experience is required, and what’s more we’ll reward you for your participation! Find out more about becoming a MIDAS Beta Tester here.

Coming Soon in v4.08: Reporting Improvements

MIDAS v4.08 is on the horizon, and as is becoming tradition we’re giving readers of our blog a sneak preview of some of the new and improved features you’ll be able to find in this forthcoming update to our popular Web Based Room Booking and Resource Scheduling Software.

In this blog post we’ll take a look at a new report coming to the Statistics generation capabilities of MIDAS…

MIDAS is already capable of generating a wealth of graphical statistics and reports into your bookings, clients, invoices, resources, and venue usage, not to mention you can also export data in a range of formats for further analysis/report generation in 3rd party applications (such as Excel).

Following customer feedback, we’re adding a new “Potential Income” report to the Venue Statistics screen for v4.08.

Potential Income Report

This brand new report outlines the potential income you can expect to receive from each venue over any given date range based on current bookings. The report takes into account any booking type discounts, and provides a complete break down of potential income to provide separate projected income amounts for venue hire, equipment usage, consumables usage, and staffing costs.

With this new “Potential Income” report, you’ll be able to compare your venues and resources to see which are performing best and which are under performing. As this report can also be generated for dates in the future, you can also use this report to gain a clear idea of what future income is likely to be.

MIDAS v4.08 isn’t yet available. It is expected to become available to Beta Testers in the coming weeks, with a full public release soon afterwards. To be amongst the first to be notified once v4.08 becomes available, be sure to join our Mailing List and follow us on Social Media

We’re improving the statistics/reports that MIDAS can generate for you in v4.06 with three exciting new additions:

Venue Utilization Statistics

Venue Utilization Report
Venue Utilization Report

The new Venue Utilization report shows you the amount of usage that each venue has over a period of time. It will tell you for how many hours each venue is booked out of the total amount of hours available (taking into account the venue’s hours of operation too!), and give you a percentage utilization figure too!

Resource Statistics

Resource Statistics Report
Resource Statistics Report

The brand new Resource Statistics section generates a report into your resources (equipment, consumables, and staffing) over a period of time. It provides details of the number of each resource in use during that period, and an estimate of the income potential from each. In addition, the report indicates the current totals of all resources (as well as unique resources) in your MIDAS, and also provides an insight into the most “watched” resources.

Individual Client Statistics

Individual Client Report
Individual Client Report

Improvements to Client reports now mean that with v4.06 you can see detailed reports for each individual client. These reports show when the client was added to the system, how many bookings and invoices they have, the dates/times of their first, previous, next and last bookings (which can be clicked to jump directly to those bookings). The report also calculates the total combined length of all the client’s bookings, as well as the average length of their bookings
