Conference Rooms

At Uber, we are constantly outgrowing our office space. With exponential growth comes a lack of conference room space (among other things). I saw a serious need to better organize our room reservation system.. To ease our growing pains, I enlisted one of our iOS developers, who was also pumped about the idea, to assist in the project.

I brainstormed and whiteboarded the information that would be most useful when approaching a conference room door. This process revealed that some of our biggest challenges revolved around finding impromptu meeting space. Based on this insight, we sought a way to allow for easy "on demand" booking, as well as an avenue to find open rooms elsewhere in the office. I sketched out a variety of potential solutions and transitioned to wireframes shortly after.

Once we had reached a viable starting point, the developer and I collaborated closely and iterated quickly to create a solid deliverable that would be immediately useful to the company.. After 3 days of working in our spare time, we had developed a working prototype, along with a plan to deploy iPads to each conference room.

In a matter of a week, we were able to move from idea to implementation and produce an iPad App that is now used religiously by everyone at HQ. In fact, our app is now being prepared for use in our field offices, as well.
