Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
TouchdownSpace, Inc., a Washington, D.C.-based technology startup that enables everyone to book flexible, professional workspace on-demand via an iPhone App and/or online via the company’s website http://www.touchdownspace.com, announced yesterday its official launch in the Washington, D.C. Metro market, encompassing 240 professional touchdown spaces in 65 locations. The company will be launching in five new markets, including New York City, in the coming weeks. Professional workspace includes private offices, open workstations, meeting and board rooms and business lounges at premier office addresses.
“We are on a mission to help people work better,” says CEO and co-founder, Caleb Parker. “The nature of work is changing. More people are working outside of the office than ever before. The old real estate model of high rent and lengthy lease terms must change too. It just doesn’t make sense to pay high rent on a space you’re not in all the time.”
That’s where TouchdownSpace comes in. TouchdownSpace lets people reserve professional offices and meeting rooms on-demand, giving people a professional environment just when they need it, and helping companies break free of expensive leases so they can invest capital into growing their companies. Reservations can be made by the hour or by the day, and managed from within the mobile app, or at http://www.touchdownspace.com.
TouchdownSpace has partnered with office business center operators at the leading edge of the workspace-as-a-service (WaaS) industry, such as Carr Workplaces, AdvantEdge Business Centers, Intelligent Office, and others, to aggregate their available workspaces and offer them on-demand to TouchdownSpace members.
The company’s product launch comes vis-à-vis the backdrop of a growing number of mobile professionals and telecommuters. Access to mobile technologies has fueled the growth of mobile working, along with an increase in entrepreneurship and a new generation of professionals requiring flexible work schedules. As a result, companies are using flexible working as a recruiting tool while downsizing their physical office and carbon footprint and realizing significant cost savings in the process.
TouchdownSpace aims to become everyone’s private office that can be booked from anywhere on-demand in real time or via its white glove concierge service at no additional charge.
