WORKERO

Shared workspaces enabling innovation and co-creation.
Using Laravel, React and AWS services to develop a highly interactive digital platform.

Customer

Workero is a digital platform that gives corporate partners the opportunity to open up their unused offices to freelancers, startups, scale-ups and independents, who can book their workspace here.

By bringing together these parties, Workero creates business opportunities, helps facilitate innovation and reduces the much debated mobility problems: working closer to home = less traffic.

Workero has taken this a step further by developing a phygital network through its communities and the Growth and Development program, supported by corporates including Procter & Gamble, Decathlon, DXC and many more to come.

During the COVID-19 crisis, Workero developed its offerings to facilitate COVID-proof professional and remote work for companies. Its Building Management Software uses data-analysis to help businesses understand their office space usage, ensure healthy work environments and optimise their office real estate portfolio.

Challenge

To develop a digital platform integrated with a series of third-party providers where companies and individuals would connect to exchange ideas, rent and book office spaces, subscribe to events, share news and catch-up with updates in the technology field.

Solution

The multidisciplinary team developed:

an interactive public platform with a powerful booking engine. This platform allows professionals to easily log in using multiple account options. Once they have signed up, they can book their flexible workspace in a matter of minutes. Payment transactions are being processed by US-based payment services provider Stripe. This platform includes the Workero community, where Heroes can read and share news or subscribe to events organised by Workero. Most significantly, this system is able to make contact, event and project recommendations based on interests identified through data-gathering and machine learning algorithms.

an extensive back-office portal for companies that allows partner businesses to manage bookings in their workspaces, by their own employees or externals.

a mobile app, available for both Android and iOS. This app allows Heroes to communicate with other users, to share events, projects and business news, and to make a booking quick and easily!

Results

The digital platform allows Workero to put in practice their idea of connecting companies and individuals, corporates and startups/scale-ups. Not only does this help them boost their growth by enabling them to handle and fulfil their business needs via an interactive digital platform, it also helps them find the right business partners to fast-track innovation.

Workero is further developing its Business Management Software to help businesses adopt the New Way of Working and guarantee their employees safety at work, whilst improving their real estate portfolios.

With its platform, Workero is a game-changer in the way workspaces are built, used and managed and a driver for innovation and collaboration. This is also one of the reasons for which the project became eligible for funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.
