Yardi, a leading provider of real estate software, and WeWork, a leading global flexible space provider, have recently announced the official debut of WeWork Workplace — a new space management solution. With a strong focus on innovation, utility and efficiency, the Workplace app is an end-to-end solution that enables inventory management and optimization across office spaces while enhancing employee experiences for companies of all sizes.
WeWork Workplace provides companies with a unified booking platform for all their spaces, whether leased or owned, as well as access to more than 500 WeWork locations. In fact, the streamlined experience to book workstations across the company’s universal spaces portfolio is unique to WeWork Workplace.
“Combining our advantages in scale, speed and access to flexible spaces with Yardi’s industry-leading software and tech capabilities, WeWork Workplace doesn’t stop at desk booking or backend insights — it aims to solve for a dynamic, constantly evolving future of work,” said Scott Morey, WeWork president of Technology & Innovation.
As the remote and hybrid work model continues to gain popularity in the context of the pandemic, both employers and employees are focused on getting the most out of their workspace. With this in mind, WeWork Workplace aims to help office users more purposefully engage with the workspace while reducing costs. The app provides employers with valuable insights on space utilization and occupancy trends across all locations, whether leased, owned, or flex.
“Businesses today must solve for bringing flexible work models to life — optimizing their spaces without sacrificing the culture, collaboration and productivity that happens in person. This is what we aim to deliver with WeWork Workplace,” added Scott Morey.
A Comprehensive End-to-End Platform
WeWork Workplace is more than a solution for seat allocation and booking. The software also aims to help companies design and evolve hybrid work models by:
- Optimizing employee experiences — built-in features like interactive floor maps, booking capabilities and visitor management create a more intentional engagement with the office.
- Customization and management regardless of location and asset type — dividing and assigning the office into zones for each group to enjoy makes any workspace safer and easier to navigate.
- Providing accurate insights that support real estate decisions making — data and occupancy trends generated from daily bookings enable real-time portfolio optimization that contributes to cost savings for the company.
“Today I am at home, tomorrow I’m booking desks for my team at headquarters to collaborate, next week I need a large training room and desk at WeWork with a client. The Workplace app handles it all,” added Robert Teel, senior vice president at Yardi.
WeWork Workplace is the only space management solution on the market that provides companies with the tools required to build, manage, and execute workplace strategies focused on flexibility and employee connection.
