Designing and Running an Automated, Welcoming Coworking Space
As a coworking space operator, designing your workspace correctly is a vital part of starting out on the right foot.
You can give yourself a greater chance of success if you offer a broad range of space and membership types to attract people with different financial means and workspace needs. Maximize the available market that you can serve.
On the expense side, automating the operation of your workplace will make your business easier to run and require less staff, freeing your existing staff to concentrate on the components that will increase retention: building community, making a welcoming space and planning events.
Your management software should make all of this easy by enabling fast and flexible product creation, automatically tracking usage against different membership plans and quickly giving you the insights you need to make good decisions.
