πŸ–±οΈ Workspace tool gets new features to cut down tab-toggling
Syncaroo shared that their Assistant browser extension now includes on-screen "helpers" Expand πŸ‘‡ for LiquidSpace, Hubble, Deskpass, Tally and Instant Offices with development and testing already underway, and alongside multi-location space teams, for OfficeHub, Office Freedom, Workthere, NearU and Rubberdesk (UK).
These "helpers" browser extension (for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge) expands their live-date sidebar functionality with on-page overlays that make checking and updating important information like prices, descriptions and opening hours faster, without needing to check any other tabs, sheets or dashboards.
πŸŽ’ Hybrid work platform rolls out their 3rd party booking layer
The integration between Kadence and Liquidspace is now live, and helping organizations’ employees Expand πŸ‘‡ using the workforce management platform to book internal and third-party spaces to work and meet in. This follows the announcement from both firms in week 20, 2023, and included a full rebuild of the booking experience.
Expect to see more booking interfaces coming into other hybrid-enabling software, especially as implementation & integration timeframes are coming down, fast.
πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ The utter ridiculousness of modern work
Joan Westenberg shares a fantastic summary of how infuriatingly ridiculous the tech stacks at some Expand πŸ‘‡ modern teams is. From a single message, tasks get done through 6 different systems and 17 databases, each costing the firm a bunch dollars per user per month – and burning any actual useful work time.
Sound familiar? In coworking businesses it can often times be worse. It’s why so many of us are working on automating how tech and tools speak to each other, so humans can get back to doing what they actually joined to do.
⏱️ Platform ramps up engines already generating $3M+ for some operators
Alliance Virtual Offices are ramping up how they drive even more revenue from the 180,000+ Expand πŸ‘‡ businesses they actively service towards flex space operators. To do so, they’re integrating with Syncaroo to make managing listings, availability and bookings effortless.
Why this matters? As some operators are already making $250k per month from this channel, and Alliance are actively adding new revenue drivers – then any reduction in manual work around this revenue, drives up the potential profit for all participating spaces. Right?
Full Disclosure: I’m a cofounder at Syncaroo.
πŸ€” Do we REALLY need an app for that?
Diogo Matos raises a valid point, with an interesting use-case, that not every tech solution removes Expand πŸ‘‡ friction for end-users. They point out that one space uses the call booth window as the ‘booking system’ instead of having a platform, calendar, or mobile app.
Now this is a topic I loooove digging into – given my day job is helping operators get all their workspace tech both working together, and out of their users way, at the same time.
Do we need tech for every little thing? No. Could writing on a board be easier? Maybe.. But a well-connected system, featuring say a screen for checking and making bookings QUICKLY, provides a better experience and far FAR more business-driving data. Better? Yea, I mean is Roberto’s 10am booking for today, yesterday or tomorrow? Are you sure?!
