📰 Coworking updates.

🦘 Global workspace syncing API introduced.

Syncaroo 🇺🇸 aims to make workspace infinitely more discoverable, by making it truly effortless to update all your brokers, aggregators, booking platforms, alliances, apps, and marketing channels.

Once enabled, Syncaroo’s algorithm picks up any changes you make in your workspace management system, and then syncs those updates to any platforms you’ve connected your account to.

This week, the platform began inviting developers to begin implementing and testing their API (ie the technology that allows systems to efficiently and securely receive updated data automatically). 

This might just be the next step in finally ending the never-ending manual copy-and-pasting of details across all. the. platforms.
