Smartworks launches ‘all-new’ revamped Mobile App

Introduces digitized support features for contactless daily business operations

June 10, 2020 – Smartworks, India’s leading agile workspace provider for large enterprises, announced the launch of its ‘all-new’ revamped mobile App for contactless business processes and service requests. The revamped App comes with an upgraded and intuitive interface that integrates all Smartworks facility operations, communication, and collaboration into the mobile ecosystem. The App aims to meet the needs of today’s workforce and is in line with Smartworks vision of creating the workspaces of the future.

Technology has been Smartworks’ key focus area since its inception. Smartworks was the first coworking space provider to deploy a humanoid, Mitri, for handling the overall office management for the facility, and the visitor management system. From contactless digital entry with mandatory self-declaration to IoT enabled meeting room booking with an inbuilt feature to control the amenities, digital pantry solutions, contactless Visitor Management System, Parking management system, Smart service and feedback platform, to e-Concierge services, Smartworks technology-enabled workspace is designed at easing the workflows during these unprecedented times.

The App will reduce the dependency on the workforce and enable members to go contactless during the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping them literally ‘hands-off’ for support. As more and more people are returning to workspaces, focus on their health and safety will be more critical than ever. The App will ensure physical distancing and cater to the daily requirements with the click of a button. Replacing the frequent touchpoints such as meeting room booking and feedback tablets, light switches and TV screens inside a conference room with touch-free options, is the need of the hour to curb the spread inside the premises and keep everyone safe.

Commenting on the revamped App, Neetish Sarda, founder Smartworks said, “Technology will be a key enabler for a contactless world and remote collaboration. Our revamped App is a key step in creating a futuristic workplace and promises to deliver an enhanced in-office experience, enterprise-grade capabilities with easy-to-use features. The future workspaces will be a network of connected workplace strategies, tools & technologies, and with the ever-evolving expectations, delivering an Omni-channel customer experience has become imperative for us.”

The App is available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play for its members and employees.

Co-working Spaces

Co-working Spaces Will Evolve in 2020

There has been a paradigm shift in how people work and how they perceive their future workspaces. Co-working spaces are constantly evolving their business models and setting contemporary trends to establish themselves as a cost-effective solution to enterprises, and meet employees’ demands and aspirations.

According to a CBRE survey, as the demand for co-working spaces multiply, there would be a significant growth in the area occupied by co-working space providers, which will rise from 5.4 million sq. ft in 2018 to about 7-9 million sq. ft by 2020.

Co-working spaces are continually evolving to deploy the latest solutions to revolutionize the overall experience of customers, some of the emerging co-working trends for 2020 will be:

Consolidation and Synergy

As the co-working sector continues to enjoy phenomenal growth, one of the ascending trends in co-working brands would be a consolidation of their portfolios. Over the years, as the co-working sector gets more organized, one can foresee large multi-city players merging with smaller unorganized ones as part of a synergistic and consolidating exercise. As large global investors and prominent real estate players have been indicating their interest in the co-working sector, numerous mergers and stake purchases can be foreseen in the upcoming year. One can expect to see new funding avenues, which will likely boost the confidence, improve the financial viability and secure the future profitability of flexible workplace operators in the country.

Service and Experience Standardization

Experience is the single biggest differentiator that makes or breaks a brand. One of the critical imperatives for flexible workspace providers is to create an unparalleled experience for its members through state-of-the-art amenities and services across multiple cities; that too, a standard experience. By providing a standardized working environment, co-working spaces are providing ample expansion opportunities to their members, allowing them to expand their geographical footprint and ensure happiness and engagement.

Smart Connected Buildings

The world is at a cusp of tech disruption with artificial intelligence and machine learning becoming the most sought after aspects of technology. Real estate as a sector has been fast enough to adapt to these. Large enterprises today look at technologically advanced, collaborative and productive spaces to avoid the hassle of running an office space. Using Internet-of-Things for asset management, spatial analytics, mobile apps and visitor management systems, virtual reality for future office spaces are just a few technological interventions that co-working players have started to adopt. These interventions will enhance monitoring and reporting capability and offer an excellent world-class wireless experience to its members, and also reduce the building management costs.

Quality of clients over quantity

One of the most significant advantages of shared workspaces is ample networking and collaboration opportunities that allow the flow of newer ideas, new connects communication beyond work, and collaboration. Shared workspace providers are becoming exceedingly cautious about the kind of members that they get on-board. Some co-working spaces are putting their members through a vetting screening process to understand if they are a perfect fit for that office space, this enables them to retain their members and drive their events centered around their professional interests. Members, on the other hand, benefit from the community experience offered by co-working spaces and benefit from the collaboration opportunities.

Profitability

Profit plays a crucial role in any business—while companies can focus on market opportunities, but generating profit is equally essential. The primary focus of co-working space providers would towards strengthening their business model and becoming profitable to attract investors. Most of the agile office space providers would strive to maintain an aggressive pricing strategy and churn rate to become profitable.

Sustainability Initiatives

A clean, green and sustainable workspace is not only good for co-workers but the environment as well. Waste reduction strategies, in terms of energy and waste, will translate into cost savings and will be a significant step towards contributing to the broader ecosystem also. Solar energy, elimination of single-use plastic, improved indoor air quality with plants and motion sensors on lighting are some of the initiatives making way into shared workspaces for future sustainability.

Co-working spaces are emerging as an unmatched alternative as they provide the exceptional working experience, with seamless technology integration and extensive corporate grooming sessions to ensure that the workforce is engaged and rejuvenated.

New Delhi/Noida, 31st October 2019 –Keppel Land Limited (Keppel Land) has invested US $25 million in Smartworks Coworking Space Pvt. Ltd (Smartworks), a leading pan-India flexible space solutions provider with a presence in nine major Indian cities, namely, Delhi, Noida, Gurgaon, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune.

Mr. Tan Swee Yiow, CEO of Keppel Land,, said, “Smartworks’ innovative business model, coupled with its strong knowledge of the Indian enterprise office segment and execution abilities, is highly scalable and relevant, particularly in India’s growing market for commercial office spaces. This investment allows Keppel Land to enter one of the world’s fastest-growing flexible office markets, opening doors for further growth through this collaboration.
