Flexibility has become key for businesses navigating their return to the office, leading to new developments within the industry that go beyond actual flexible workspaces.
The most recent emergence has been online platform TROT, which allows owners to list their available offices in New York City and make it easy to “browse a broad selection of locations, building classes and amenities to find a short-term space that works best for them.”
“TROT allows businesses to find and book flexible office space that suits their evolving needs, building a relationship with owners,” said David Menaged, CEO of TROT. “Our technology-driven approach offers owners and businesses a trusted marketplace that unifies the way flex space will be marketed, managed and booked.”
However, TROT is certainly not the first of its kind.
Its presence is a fraction of competitors like Upflex, which recently received $30 million in a Series A funding round in May led by WeWork. This news came months after the two companies announced a partnership that made Upflex the exclusive aggregate for WeWork spaces.
