BetaMaster

The BetaMaster project is an all-in-one facility management tool for maker spaces, workshops, and more.

The system handles bookings, usage certificates/safety courses, guides, services intervals, and loan of equipment.

The system is different from the other booking sites online as it\’s also working with a physical device (the BetaBox) where users unlock the machine with their keycard.
The BetaBox knows all the bookings, allowed users, and reports the usage and run time of the machines, to let the workshop manager have even better control.
