San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2012
The League of Extraordinary Coworking Spaces (LEXC), a unique network of Coworking spaces with a common standard of excellence, today announced its first cross-venue corporate customer, Accenture. Accenture’s membership includes privileges at all current and future LEXC venues, providing trusted access to great places to work right now, in 10 metropolitan areas and growing.
Today, LEXC announced the addition of Grind in New York City and Connect113 in Washington DC, both serving vibrant Coworking movements in their respective cities. LEXC will continue to expand, aiming to unite 25 cities across the US by June.
Since launching in January, the group has enjoyed high demand from Coworking spaces in dozens of metropolitan areas, and is evaluating new applications ongoing. Interested operators can now start the application process via the LEXC website.
To its space partners, LEXC provides a rich peer group of like minded operators, as well as access to a progressive and diverse community of mobile workers across the country.
Individual members of any LEXC venue enjoy trusted member privileges at all other venues in the network. If you’re a member of one LEXC venue, you’re a member of all LEXC venues. LEXC venues ensure a seamless experience whenever and wherever work takes place.
Corporations expanding their workplace strategy to include Coworking, can learn more by emailing the LEXC administrator at info(at)lexc(dot)org.
"We believe Accenture is the corporate leader in workplace innovation. So we are excited to partner with LEXC to offer yet another flexible space option to much of our mobile employee base,” said Dan Johnson, Global Workplace Strategy lead at Accenture. “LEXC has helped to make Coworking more approachable for larger companies like ours, and we’re proud to be the first to offer the privilege to our workforce.”
The original six founding venues participating in LEXC are: NextSpace with locations in San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Cruz and Los Angeles; BLANKSPACES in Los Angeles; Link Coworking in Austin; Workbar in Boston; CoCo coworking and collaborative space in Minneapolis and St. Paul; and 654 Croswell in Grand Rapids, MI.
LEXC is enabled by the technology platform provided by its founding partner LiquidSpace.
The LiquidSpace platform provides a real-time trusted sharing system that allows LEXC to manage permissions and privileges for its members across the network. Any member can freely reserve workspace and meeting space anywhere in the LEXC network using the Liquidspace Web and mobile (iPhone/Android) booking interfaces. Once members arrive at their reserved venue, the platform provides authentication, automates check in, and unlocks amenities and special LEXC member privileges.
“The LEXC network is about expanding the opportunities for Coworking, for both our current members as well as new individuals and companies opening their eyes to this new way of working” said Liz Elam, founder of Link Coworking and President of LEXC. “Each of the LEXC spaces has been successful in our own right, and together we are even stronger. Accenture’s desire to join is proof that LEXC is compelling enough to be a real solution for groups of individuals with shared goals for mobile work and workplace excellence.”
The League of Extraordinary Coworking Spaces (LEXC) is a unique network of coworking spaces with a common standard of excellence. LEXC venues extend trusted access and full member privileges across the network freely. LEXC is the world’s first coworking loyalty program.
