Sharing-Space-as-a-service (Saas) software firm, HappyDesk, today introduced enterprise-grade software that transforms the way shared space are sold, accessed and serviced. The new peer-to-peer platform creates new opportunities for individuals and companies to transact and collaborate.
With more people and businesses embracing the sharing economy, the co-founders of HappyDesk, who have decades of experience in the shared space industry, identified a need to take the process of searching and reserving space one step further in order to both enable and enhance interaction for both provider and end-user. The company has assembled a roster of experts whose background in technology, commercial real estate and mobile working makes them uniquely positioned to lead the charge for the industry.
“HappyDesk clients include providers that will offer everything from offices to meeting space and from administrative services to event tickets,” explained Dale Hersowitz, HappyDesk’s Co-Founder. Our software enhances the connection between parties, eliminating the middleman allowing for an easy real-time transaction.”
The Global Workplace Association estimates the shared space industry generated close to $11 billion last year and predicts more growth opportunities ahead.
“Momentum for the industry is strong as organizations – both big and small – allow their staff to work in an environment and location that best suits each individual,” said Hersowitz.
The software includes: white-label e-commerce, CRM, billing, proposal templates and door access technology. This gives shared space providers of any size the ability to sell anything and connect with anyone on their own website.
Michael Kenny of Co-Merge Workplace in San Diego is among the shared space providers using HappyDesk.
“I like that all of the functionalities we need to operate our business are included in the HappyDesk suite of offerings. Everything is covered and the team is helping us customize the software to accommodate us. It’s not an off-the-shelf product,” said Kenny.
For a limited time, shared space providers can sign up for free.
