It makes perfect sense that LiquidSpace would join forces with Preferred Office Network, and we’re thrilled to together offer on-demand access to this growing portfolio of high-quality business centers.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
LiquidSpace, the online marketplace that helps everyone choose a better space to work or meet, and Preferred Office Network, the only national network of executive suites focused on corporate users, announced a new strategic partnership today. The partnership to better serve enterprise clients extends Preferred Office Network’s offering to include on-demand office space and meeting rooms by the hour or the day, and opens up the LiquidSpace marketplace to select Preferred Office Network executive suites. Together, Preferred Office Network and LiquidSpace offer professionals access to office space and meeting rooms from minutes to months.
As a result of the alliance, mobile employees of enterprise clients will be able to easily locate, book, pay and check-in to select Preferred Office Network office business centers on the Web or via their mobile phone.
Today, there are over 1 billion mobile workers globally according to a recent report by IDC. As more people leave the traditional office to get work done, corporations are responding by identifying flexible workspace alternatives for their teams and empowering their employees with technology solutions that consumerize real-estate by helping them choose and rent the space they need when they need it.
“We have listened to our corporate users. When it comes to real estate, they want flexibility that leads to reduced overhead and capital costs but with some control and visibility,” said Kris Elliott, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Preferred Office Network. “We are excited to partner with LiquidSpace to power our own flexible offerings with their real-time booking platform and help enterprises become more efficient and monitor, analyze and learn from employee work habits.”
“Business professionals of today are more empowered to choose how, where and when they work,” said Mark Gilbreath, CEO and co-founder of LiquidSpace. “Preferred Office Network ensures that contractual commitments for space are as flexible as possible which allows enterprise clients to respond quickly. It makes perfect sense that LiquidSpace would join forces with Preferred Office Network, and we’re thrilled to together offer on-demand access to this growing portfolio of high-quality business centers.”
With LiquidSpace and Preferred Office Network, mobile workers and employers will be able to:
- Help enterprise employees and teams find the meeting rooms and office space they need quickly and confidently
- Help increase workforce productivity by allowing employees to work when and where they work best
- Help enterprises lower costs and shift their corporate real estate footprint from a long-term, fixed commitment to a No-Term Agreement or variable cost
- Help enterprises monitor remote workspace use with a single view into requirements and utilization
