Behind the Scenes

We started developing Satellite Deskworks as soon as we opened our first coworking space, knowing that we had to be as efficient as possible to best serve the new workforce of independent professionals, remote workers and freelancers. Simple, automated software was the only way to do that. We wanted our Center Managers to be interacting with members, not spending their time on the details of operations. A few years ago, we saw that other coworking and flexible workspace centers needed this, too. We’re continually innovating and adding features — and our Center Managers love using Satellite Deskworks!
