Building a stable community is one of the pillars of running a successful coworking space. Managing your time efficiently enables operators to manage and prioritize their members’ needs and ultimately, give them the experience they deserve.
In this article, we will define pain points in your daily operations that are costing you valuable time and help you tackle them by providing 4 ways to create a self-service coworking space.
1. Integrated Welcome Service
One of the best ways to streamline coworking management is to integrate a welcome service by which members can be introduced to their new working space and complete necessary procedures independently. Imagine a new member signing up for your coworking space, he or she gets an automatic email welcoming them with a variety of information such as house rules, community news, training, and additionally, the request to download your space’s internal app.
2. Proactive Scheduling and Communication
Within this integration, it’s possible for your (new) member to book a desk or meeting room on their smartphone within seconds, schedule classes or workshops, sign up for events and participate in all the other online services that make your space unique. Think of a built-in chat functionality that keeps your members connected and lets the community answer questions for you.
3. Manageable Access
Cloud-based access control solutions such as SALTO KS enable your space members to open doors he or she has access to by tapping the lock with their mobile phone without even opening an app. This enables them, and you for that matter, to work more efficiently. Save time by having your members bypass the front desk and establish a personal relationship with your members from the first minute they arrive.
4. Automated Billing System
Lastly, an automated billing function enables your members to receive bills based on their data. This could include the accurate time they have spent in a particular space, the services they’ve used and more, all of which are found on the invoice without the need for manual intervention.
Running a self-service coworking space by automating your operations is a realistic plan for the future if you choose to integrate your preferred management tool with a comprehensive access control solution. Investing in these solutions ensures that both your members and management are making the most out of a coworking space.
