Mosaic Space UK is the licensed distributor of RUIS, the market leading room utilisation analysis software. RUIS enables estate managers to create detailed reports and charts of space utilisation, using data imported from timetables, room audit results, and estate management systems. It is fully compliant with HESA space utilisation reporting calculations, specifically the D45 Frequency Rate Calculation and the D46 Occupancy Rate Calculation. A rich toolset makes the complex task of producing room utilisation reports easier. Full details of RUIS can be viewed on the software's product website: http://www.roomutilisation.com
RUIS is written in Visual Studio .NET 2008. The software stores space utilization data in SQL Server databases housed on a central server, with users able to access ASP.NET web pages to control the system. State-of-the-art report and chart components provide a rich user interface. As RUIS is a standard Web Server application, maintenance, installation and system support is easy.
Configuration options allow users to control the system parameters of the software and the methods by which RUIS manages data and calculates room utilisation. Active days, start and end times, and report periods (such as years, semesters or terms) are all user-defined. Report generation options facilitate the production of reports that meet local requirements.
RUIS provides an easy import file data structure and data translation interface tools that do not demand a high level of user editing. Data translation interfaces are available for the most popular timetable software applications, including Facility CMIS, CELCAT Timetabler, and Scientia Enterprise, making the otherwise difficult task of extracting timetable data for room use reporting pain free.
RUIS offers a very powerful data filter engine, constructed to allow users to easily and quickly make and save data filters that define room utilisation reports. There is no limit to the number of data filters that can be created. Data filters for Campus, Precinct, Building, Room Type, and Room can be specified, and the filters can precisely define days, start and end times, and weeks to be reported.
Room Utilisation Reports
RUIS contains more than thirty room utilisation reports that provide the detailed information required to more effectively manage space. Reports include a Dashboard, Utilisation by Campus, Precinct, Building, Room Type, Room Controller and Room. Comparison Reports can compare timetabled with audited use, or between years. Other detailed analysis reports are also available.
Room Utilisation Charts
There are six well recognised chart types that are available in RUIS - Bar, Column, Column/Line, Line, Pie and Scatter. Users can choose whether to view and export charts in 2-D or3-D formats. Controls allow the specification of data point colours and chart, titles, and charts can be exporting to Excel, PDF, HTML, Print or PNG for inclusion in other reports.
RUIS supports the export of room utilisation reports and charts in a number of different formats. Export icons in the software run code that generates export files in the chosen format, allowing for easy inclusion of RUIS reports into formal room utilisation analysis documents, including PowerPoint and Word. Supported formats are Excel, PDF, Print, HTML and PNG.
