For the longest time, I have struggled to focus working online with the noise around my home. I sometimes go to cafes and have considered spending time at co-working spaces in order to finish articles and beat deadlines. For me, these places offer great spaces and internet connectivity I need for blogging.
At the launch of GoSPCE App earlier today, I found out that getting a space can really can be easy from now on. Millennials looking for new experiences and independent workers like freelancers, business owners, startup companies, or any creative business team can use GoSPCE to find their ideal place to work.
“GoSPCE is both a discovery and booking experience for consumers as well as a full end-to-end hospitality operations automation platform for space owners,” says Randy McGraw, co-founder of ALTUS Digital Capital - the owner-operator private equity firm that is driving the regional expansion of GoSPCE.
This digital innovation from ALTUS Digital Capital matches guests according to the work or play space they require. “Owners of any type of space that can be used for work or play purposes can list, shape, price and market their spaces - whether conventional or unexpected spaces - define what activities can be conducted there, and find interested consumer segments by using online marketing tools offered by the platform or via our own marketing in their behalf.”
GoSPCE has a billing gateway and automated check-in/check-out function that enables a seamless transaction for both Guest and Host.
What Makes GoSPCE Beneficial to Hosts?
Any commercial establishment (with a valid TIN) that has available spaces for work or play purposes will find huge value in GoSPCE. These include co-working space operators with single desks and rooms to rent, hotels with spacious meeting rooms, open areas and pools, bars with unused second floors, restaurants with function rooms or dead space between lunch and dinner seatings, building owners with parking lots that can double as a practice space for teams or bands, or an open field that can be repurposed as a soccer pitch. We welcome any commercial space that can be used for work or play.
By using the platform, Hosts not only run their operations smoothly but provide a better customer experience through the following:
● Full control of shaping, defining, and pricing their spaces
● Fully automated and secure booking and payment process for guests
● Real-time discounting tools to conduct targeted sales and manage inventory
● In-app communication tools to reach guests both during and after their stay
● Marketing and selling in-house-value add services, transacting and fulfilling the orders through the app
● Permissions based dashboard analytics to understand guest behaviour and requirements better
The GoSPCE platform have over 400 Hosts have signed over 4,900 different types of spaces onto GoSPCE. These range from large corporate Hosts such as the Cravings Group and the Bistro Group, hotels like EcoHotels, and unconventional Hosts like Felipe and Sons, with a second floor that boasts a space with a bar that can be used for product launches, corporate training sessions, and other work or play purposes.
By the end of Q2 2018, any hotel, co-working space operator, hostel, managed service apartment or other hospitality-centric operator will be able to fully automate every aspect of their operation via the GoSPCE platform.
