Four months down the worst global healthcare crisis, here we are, stronger and more dedicated to the Flexible Workspace industry and Flexible Working evolution than ever before. The world has changed! The way we live and work has changed! The big HQ office in the central business district is dead. Long live the remote, on-demand, distributed, agile, dynamic, fluid, flexible office. The new environment gave us a unique opportunity to ‘make flexible working the way of working much faster than we thought.

What we’ve done

The last four months felt more like a year! We faced the worst and scariest crisis our industry could’ve possibly face – complete lockdown with no end date. Most coworking and flexible workspaces had to close their doors. As a result, many lost a lot of their members, a big percentage of their revenues, furlough and reduce their staff and took other extreme measures to survive the pandemic.

As a responsible company, we also had to quickly take a lot of measures to ensure that our team is safe – physically, mentally, and financially. We took the decision to not let go of anyone, of course. Instead, we found other ways to preserve cash and reduce our expenses.

Our team has been working around the clock on so many fronts to ensure that we can serve you, our customers, in the best possible way. Here’s a glimpse of what we’ve done so far:

  • flexible workspace evolution with mobile appsFocused our team effort toward the most important features to help you in the current environment:
    • Digital Community – open communication and collaboration are now more important than ever.
    • Operations – automation, discounting, and all other membership management operations can help you streamline your business.
    • Safety – streamline the flow of people into your building(s) can help increase the safety of your space.
    • Reporting – knowing your numbers in the time of crisis is the only way to navigate in uncertain times.

What we’re going to do

Today, although we have a little bit more clarity about the future than 4 months ago, we still live in highly uncertain times. We live in the new reality that although we’re returning to some ‘normals’, the pandemic is far from resolved. The big question we’re all asking ourselves is What’s the future of work? How are we going to work tomorrow? How is the flexible workspace industry going to change?

At OfficeRnD we believe we know the answer! We believe the future of work is Flexible working. We also believe we know how to help that to become a reality. By delivering the most reliable flexible workspace management platform in combination with the most intuitive employee/member experience apps.

We’re ready to go back to growth mode. There’s still a lot of work to be done:

  • Reporting – we will make our reports 10x more robust!
  • Multi-location management – we will make managing multiple buildings in different countries easier than ever before.
  • Collaboration and Member tools – we will keep pushing our Mobile apps, Tablet apps and Web portals in order to increase the member engagement.
  • User Experience – we will deliver more features to make managing a flexible workspace easier.
  • Reliability, Security, Performance – we will keep pushing harder to make the foundations of OfficeRnD stronger!

Transparency has always been a core part of our culture. Stay tuned for more details about our future plans, roadmaps, and ideas. We welcome your continued questions and encourage you to provide us with feedback – our main concern, now and always, is making you happy.

Together, let’s build something that can truly make the office a better place!
