Quarterly 30-second updates from the humans building coworking software.

Quarter 1, 2020

Hey everybody. I’m Hector Kolonas from included.co and welcome to the very first #ProptechUpdate for 2020.

This quarter we’re gonna hear from all around the world, but also from inside people’s houses about how they’re working behind the scenes to keep the software that runs our industry not only maintained, but also supported throughout this crisis.

Let’s see what they have to say.

In these uncertain times here at Nexudus, we are working as hard as ever. We’ve seen a remarkable increase in the use of our online community tools to help virtualize interactions.

To this end, we have now connected your calendar integrated ticketing system to the video conference system Zoom. You can let members RSVP or buy tickets for each of your events and we will automatically send a unique link to each attendee to join virtually.

Members can connect their own Zoom accounts so room booking emails include the link for all attendees to join remotely.

Stay tuned for more updates as we understand better how operators and communities navigate this new reality.

Hi, this is Robert with Syncaroo.com, where we keep all of your listings in-sync automagically.

This quarter, we worked on our proprietary data transformation algorithm, which takes in data from all of your favorite coworking management platforms and gets it ready to be synced with the best aggregators, booking apps and more.

In this next quarter we’ll be announcing our launch partners, partner integrations and even more. And hopefully soon we’ll be able to leave our apartments and meet each other face to face.

Hey there. My name is Sam. I’m the senior communications specialist with Cobot, checking in from my home office here in Berlin and I’m excited to share our 2020 Q1 PropTechUpdate.

Security is one of our top priorities. That’s why we’ve been able to improve single-sign-on page with support for OpenAuth and connect and added two new access control integrations, SaltoKS and Dormakaba Exivo. We’ve added more admin tools to make managing resources easier, including improved bulk connect tools.

Right now we’re working on features to help our spaces dealing with the impact of the Corona virus. We plan on rolling out these new features soon as well as new member tools and resources.

So stay tuned. Thanks so much.

cobot_me Sam BenderCobot@cobot_me

Hey, this is Mike from OfficeRND, bringing you our Q1 update. We’re thrilled to announce that we released our new Mobile member app for Android and iOS.

With the app, your members can easily book meeting rooms, view upcoming events, check the member directory, read your how-to guides and much more. We believe this app will greatly enhance the way your members interact with your space and we can’t wait for you to check it out.

In Q2, we’ll continue work on our member-facing apps, work on building up better sales tools for your team, and update our reporting modules.

On behalf of the OfficeRND team, stay healthy and thanks for watching!

Hey it’s Josh from Proximity.

Over the last few months, we spent a lot of time working on your requests. Things like multi-space management and inventory control, our single biggest request ever.. recurring reservations is now live in our platform and we have vastly improved security for your space.

Over the next few months we’re gonna be doing more of the same. Things like more control for managers and a much better Android app experience. We’re gonna be improving our multi-space support and we are gonna be working on things to make our software more intuitive and easier to use.

I think you’re gonna be really excited about what we have coming up over the next few months.

ProximitySpace Josh HudnallProximity@ProximitySpace

Hi Eric here from Morningstar Software.

I’m excited to announce that later this month, we’ll be releasing our new shared workspace management platform Workspace Geek.

It’s new and improved. It’s got a great UI. It’s easy-to-use and it can suit all of your needs.

In the next quarter we plan to release an event calendar system, a QuickBooks integration, and a new kiosk app for check-ins.

Thanks and see you then.

Hey it’s Nynke from Seats2Meet, I hope everybody is healthy doing these crazy times all over the world.

We launched the hashtag #stayconnected and we’re working on many projects to help people stay connected even if they are working from home or from everywhere in the world.

We’re also working this period on optimizing the passport to make it even more accessible for everybody on any device in every place in the world.

Hi, it’s Bradd with Isofy.

We’re here to make networking easy in your coworking space and last quarter we had a fantastic quarter. We added support from Meraki Network equipment and we launched a feature called Registration codes, which makes it easy for you to add large groups of members to the network without having to manually enter in all their information.

Next quarter, we’re launching an exciting feature that’s completely revolutionary to the industry. It will allow your members and groups to choose enhanced security features like 802.1X without affecting other groups in the space.

We’ll see you next quarter.

WeAreIsofy Bradd Konert isofy@WeAreIsofy

So there you have it.

As the world works from home to help flatten the curve, your favorite software teams have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure that you have all the tools that you need to manage your communities, amenities and value-adds.

Till the next quarter, stay healthy, stay safe and stay home.

Quarter 4, 2019

Hey I’m Hector from included.co and welcome to the ProptechUpdate where we give every coworking technology company just 30 seconds to tell us what they’re most excited about releasing this quarter and what they’re working on for the next quarter.

It’s been an epic year for the humans, companies, and technology that have enabled coworking for over 2 million people all around the world.

Let’s have a listen to what they’re excited about!

inztinkt Hector Kolonasincluded.co@inztinkt

Hi this is Bradd with isofy.

We had an exciting quarter where we launched our new admin dashboard that gives control to your staff over the network.

We added support for Unifi access points and Unifi switches and we had a soft-launch of our integration with the Nexudus platform.

Next quarter we’re excited to add more hardware support, including Meraki and add many more features to that new dashboard.

Thanks for tuning in, we’ll see you next quarter.

Hi. aCubeNow is formerly Haplo.

The 3 key functionalities we’ve added in this quarter are the ability to categorise your space by floors, create custom plans for your small and large clients, and last but not the least, onboard service providers onto your platform exclusively for your space. Can’t be excited more for 2020.

the_haplo Hari Pudipeddihaplo@the_haplo

Hey guys!

For this last quarter, we are working on whitelabelling the software to make connections, collaborations and growth as professionals and also as businesses. We’re working on a way that other companies can build forward on the software we have built and are more easy to whitelabel and use it with their own brands. That’s what we’re working on!

s2m Nynke WillemsenSeats2Meet@s2m

Hi, I’m Barbara!

The last quarter has been busy for Satellite Deskworks. You’ve seemed to really like our interactive clickable floorplan; the membership landing pages, so people can click to buy it now, autocharge of payment processing fees and auto-retry of declined payments. Deskworks is remarkably lightweight fast and easily customizable for you.

We’re excited about 2020! Look out for our interactive KPI dashboard shortly.

satdeskworks Barbara SprengerSatellite Deskworks@satdeskworks

Hi! Eric here from Morningstar Software.

I’m excited to introduce to you our new features and improvements to our shared workspace management platform. This quarter we added color-coded floorplans, a sleeker invoicing system, and a client-directory in our customer portal.

Next quarter we’ll be adding a proposal generator with brochures, floorplans and electronic signatures aswell as integrating with our network and phone management partner.

Thanks and stay tuned.

morningstarsftw Eric HurtMorningstar Software@morningstarsftw

Hi, I’m Damien from Nexudus in London.

If we had to choose something we’ve worked on in the past quarter it would have to be our new suite of apps dedicated to improve our member experience. We’ve completely rebuilt all of our apps from visitor management, to meeting room availability display to delivery tracking and collection aswell as the members app which can even unlock doors, or book a room, just by waving your device in front of them. These are all whitelabel and customizable.

And yes, we’ve got loads on for the next quarter too. Better data warehousing, and reporting options, new apps for those of you who are running hospitality and catering services as well as a good number of integrations with well known services.

Stay tuned!

nexudus Damien CotterNexudus@nexudus

I’m Jacob Sayles, the creator of the Nadine Project, the only open source coworking platform, so far.

Recently I’ve been cleaning up the Raspberry Pi/HIDEvo door controller system and expanding our network attendance system to work with Unifi Security Gateways as well as PFSense firewalls.

Going forward I’m looking for additional collaboration partners and sponsors. Open Source software needs continuous support to evolve and grow. So please check out nadineproject.org to see if this might be something you are interested in helping with.

Hey there!

My name is Sam, and I’m the communications specialist for Cobot.

Last quarter we made a number of improvements to our admin features and functionality, most notably we overhauled our analytics features so you can better understand your spaces’ utilization. In addition, we added new product tours, more onboarding videos as well as some advanced support features.

Next quarter, we’re looking forward to announcing some major integrations as well as celebrating 10 years of Cobot.

So stay tuned. Thank you so much!

cobot_me Sam BenderCobot@cobot_me

Mike Everts here with officernd, and I’ll have the pleasure of giving you the Q4 update for 2019.

Our primary focus this quarter was on re-designing our mobile and web member apps. With the re-design, we are able to bring a slick new look and feel to the member side of the platform and have made it even easier for your members to book rooms, view guides and engage with the community.

Our updated mobile app will bring many of the features you’re used to on the desktop-side on to the mobile experience.

We’re excited to announce that both of these updates will be released in the coming weeks. Thanks!

officernd Mike Evertsofficernd@officernd

Hi, I am Josh Hudnall. I’m the Chief Design Officer of Proximity, and I get to tell you about some of the cool things we are doing with the Proximity Network.

Like better event management, punch pass subscriptions, and a bunch of improvements with data to bring into your accounting software.

Even more exciting is what we have coming up like enhanced multi-space support, Advanced RADIUS integration for more secured networks, and some really awesome ways to connect with people just like you.

I’m really excited to share this update with you, thanks!

Quarter 3, 2019

Hey, I’m Hector from included.co and we power the perks programs for 100s of multi-business communities all around the world.

This is the very first MBC #ProptechUpdate in which we invite some of the best software vendors from across the industry to share what they’ve been most excited about releasing in the last quarter but also what they’re most excited about releasing in the next quarter.

Lets see what they have to say…

inztinkt Hector Kolonasincluded.co@inztinkt

Mike Everts here, US regional manager at officernd.

I’ll have the pleasure of giving you our quarterly update for included.co. Most of our focus in Q3 was in adding several new integrations including Contract E-Sign, Brivo Door Access, improved HubSpot CRM and better payment settings.

Our biggest update for Q4 is that we’ll go full-speed ahead on member-facing apps. We’ll have completely new designs for our mobile app and web portal, and these will be rolled out. So stay tuned.

Thanks for watching!

officernd Mike Evertsofficernd@officernd

Hi! So I’m Alex the product manager at Coherent.

The largest feature that we released in the last quarter was our Salto KS access control integration, which automates the whole setup of your access control system. Which means, whenever a member signs up to your workspace they are automatically given access to the doors that you want them to have access to.

The next biggest feature we’ve got coming is Internationalization so we’ll be soon supporting most European countries, the US, Canada and New Zealand and Australia.

coherentwork Alex MarshallCoherent@coherentwork

I’m happy to tell you that last quarter we integrated an interactive floorplan manager on Rialto allowing your sales teams and marketing teams to browse through a floorplan indicating all of the available products, the pricing and availability, as well as unique space pictures which are annotated to each of those.

Next quarter, we’ll continue building on this and integrating it in a nice redesign of flyers.

getrialto Nicolas KintRialto@getrialto

This is Amanda from Cobot.

Last quarter we implemented a major update to our booking experience. This is the number 1 way that members interact with your space online and we’ve overhauled the interface to be more visually engaging and user-friendly. Now it’s simpler to see all the relevant information at a glance, find the right meeting room at the right time, and seamlessly confirm a booking.

Next quarter, we’ve got plans to update our admin features and further develop our extensive integration possibilities.

We’re constantly working with our partners to add updates designed to keep Cobot spaces ahead of the curve, and supplied with the latest in coworking technology.

Happy coworking!

cobot_me Amanda Wolfcobot@cobot_me

At Essensys, we power the world’s largest community of tech-driven flexible workspaces and Q3 saw the release of enterprise reporting, to allow operators to explore the wealth of usage data we collect to identify up-sell opportunities, tailor compelling propositions and improve both service performance and member experience across the entire portfolio.

Looking to Q4, we’re excited to launch fully integrated real-time access control, which allows operators not only to secure their space by leveraging the security and reliability of our trusted Connect platform, but also innovate member experience by allowing booking, payment and access to rooms and services, using a simple tap of their smart phone.

essensys James ShannonEssensys@essensys

Hey guys, my names Nynke and I’m going to give you a small update from Seats2meet.

We’ve worked on our AI-driven algorithm for the Seats2meet passport. The Seats2meet Passport is for every Seats2Meet user a place where they can write down their focus of the day, and get matched to professionals, content, events and locations. We’ve used this algorithm also for a smart connecting event calendar, and in this connecting event calendar, event organizers they will always find the right audience for their events but on the other way attendees also get matched to relevant events based on their needs so it’s really a connecting event calendar.

Also the connecting part is based on if I’m like an attendee for an event and I write down why I chose that event and what I’m looking for over there and then I get matched to other attendees over there.

That’s a small update from our side and I hope to see you soon!

s2m Nynke WillemsenSeats2meet@s2m

Hi, with Zapfloor we change the way way people manage their offices. This means we can continuously update our platform with the best and newest features.

With one of our latest additions, the Lead Manager, you can completely manage your sales cycle from A to Z.

But there is more in the works for 2019. Extended reporting for example, which helps you track and visualize the key data you need to mange your center.

There will be a lot more to come in the future, so keep an eye out.

zapfloorhq Yasmine VerbinnenZapfloor@zapfloorhq

Hi, I’m Barbara with Deskworks. We want to show you two great new features.

First, Network Check-in lets you see exactly who’s in your center anytime from anywhere and automatically checks people in against whatever plans you setup for them.

Next, is our clickable floorplan, coming in just the next few weeks, showing you details for any of your spaces graphically. There’s even a Community View, with the information people want to share.

There’s more coming all the time with Deskworks. Let us show you!
