Every coworking space business hopes to grow and increase income. The simplest way to do it is to pitch your workspace products and services to a wider audience. Today the dream of so many operators comes true — andcards dropped an update that allows coworking spaces to offer seamless on-demand access to anyone.
Coworking space managers can now make certain resources available to the public, which means a person doesn’t have to belong to your community to book a desk or a meeting room at your space, to buy a hot or fixed desk membership, event pass, or any other service you offer.
A few taps to log in on the web or a mobile app, and people can access your products and services directly, without requesting to join. This takes away the friction from the user journey, giving them an opportunity to get your services without having to wait or talk to anyone. There are multiple use cases for the new benefit, as outlined below.
Offering rooms or desks externally is a great channel to monetize your workspace. Now any person who downloaded and logged into your app will be able to discover, book, and pay using your connected payment gateway.
Hosting events to help potential customers experience your space or support local communities? Now people can discover and buy event passes effortlessly, in just a few taps.
Sell one month hot or fixed desk membership, cafe or bar items, face masks, or just about anything else, to anyone online.
