Client

Since COVID-19 has turned the understanding of workspace upside down, IT companies realized the inefficiency of renting large office spaces for their teams as they stay unused. On the other hand, booking a smaller office, they risk failing to comply with the social distancing rule. Our client is a medium-sized American IT company that specializes in building software solutions and is willing to find new workspace management options.

Challenge: PROVIDE WEB-BASED DESK BOOKING SOLUTION

The prime target of our project is to provide the customer with a web-based application for quick and convenient desk booking. Any member of the team should be able to book a desk for a certain period of a day to ward off overcrowding. Such a workspace management option helps companies avoid extra rent spending and lets them book a certain number of desks, according to the preferable type of co-working. The web application has to be supported by a broker who supervises the booking process, adds new office spaces into the catalog, schedules office tours, and gives users a hand in case of difficulty.

Our web-based app offers flexible desk booking solutions for employers in San Francisco, New York, and a number of other key cities in the US and around Europe.
