New Menu Interface for the WUN Workspace Management Platform to Launch in May.

We are always listening to our operators and clients on how to improve the experience. Recently, we noticed the preference of specific features found within the Launchpad of the WUN Platform. We also noticed the utilization of our shortcuts features.

To help further the benefits of our platform, we’re launching a new interface in two months to help bring these desired options to the forefront. This new interface will help bring you further options to manage, automate, and collaborate closer to your fingertips.

Advantages to New Menu Structure:

  • More Features to the Forefront- We’ve expanded on the sub-menus to bring you more selection of your favorite features. This should simplify the management process with access to billing, data management, and floor plan activity right at your fingertips.
  • Increased Efficiency- By bringing more shortcut options to the forefront, this should reduce the time spent navigating the platform. You can go where you need to in lesser clicks.
  • Optimization for all Devices- We made the WUN Platform more accessible for users on all mobile, tablet, laptop, as well as desktop. We have made the platform more manageable from anywhere.

A smarter workspace demands for more simplicity with empowerment at every step. WUN Systems is proud to serve our operators and hopes these new changes will help bring greater efficiency–which is what WUN does best. If you’d like to learn more about how WUN Systems helps the shared workspace industry, click below to schedule a demo.

We are now approaching a new age of Coworking. New developments in the industry as well as recent projections that have become known. Here are new trends in the world of workspace culture you need to know about:

  • Coworking spaces are continuing to open across the world. This rising trend is attributed to other industries and cultures coming into the fold.
  • The population of members is also projected to grown on a similar trend.
  • Members are expecting to see more contracts, income, as well as more sustainability operating within these workspaces.

For these reasons, it’s important to look into these critical factors.

On-Site and Remote Support

In the event of a system malfunction. Will you be there when your members need you to be? There needs to be a system in place in the event your services go down during the off hours. Having a loss of data connectivity, WiFi accessibility, and door access could equate to lost revenue for your space. Staying connected is critical to keeping revenue for your space.

Monetization of Space

Gaining an understanding of which areas of the office are, and are not, being used by your members will allow you to keep a real-time view of your availability. Going beyond toward Sun Tzu’s teachings in The Art of War, understanding the lay of the land is one of the major components to victory. In this case, you’ll see what areas are keeping the lights on—helping you find ways to improve.

End to End Solutions and Connectivity

It is projected that by the end of 2017, over one million people will have worked in a Coworking space. Throughout the years, we’ve witnessed tremendous growth not just in the volume of members within Coworking spaces, but with new industries entering the fold as well. Coworking brings the advantage of efficiency, convergence, and an all-around cost-effective solution for both members and businesses. Here are a few of the challenges facing Coworking within the process of their expansion that operators need to take into consideration.

Internet Connectivity: Within the wiring of Ethernet cables and the access points of your Wifi is where the lifeblood of your workspace runs. Having poor connectivity makes it less effective for your businesses and members, decreasing morale in the process.

Rental Options: Being able to differentiate between the needs of your members is critical to the process of operating your workspace. Being able to offer select plans that includes expanded bandwidth and dedicated private offers works wonders in attracting more established clientele to your space.

Security and Overcrowding: Door security is the responsibility of the workspace operators. Without the proper security precautions in place, as well as the proper software to manage it, the security of your space as well as the work of your members is at great risk. Especially in spaces that are overloaded with no tracking or monitoring of who comes and goes.

We’ve specialized ourselves in providing for these issues, among many other challenges facing the “smart” workspaces of today. Should you have any questions on meeting the needs of your Coworking space, you can click the button below to schedule a demo.

As mentioned in a previous post, one of the new features for 2017 we’re most excited about with the WUNHD Platform is the implementation of our new Master Calendar. Not just with new features for booking in real time, but we’ve added in new amenities to help make the most of the experience for your members. Inspired by feedback from our customers, as well as new ideas from our engineers, the Master Calendar of WUN Systems provides a better connection between all parties.

New Options

Our platform now has a master view from the front end, the customer portal, as well as the resell portal, respectively. Furthermore, direct booking is now allowed with a view of real-time availability. With our real time availability options comes the option to book for present and upcoming days.

The logic of the calendar booking has also been updated to provide for more flexibility. You can choose to make the booking for 15 min, 30 mins, hourly, half day, or daily.

Mobile and Guest Booking Made Easier

Booking as a guest has been simplified significantly. All you need to have to book a room is an email confirmation.  New options for requests, check-ins, changes and cancellations are also available to guests. We also followed this up with an option for booking directly by mobile. Even if you’re connected from a smart phone, you can book your space in real time.

Customization Options

You can now apply templates and HTML features to help brand and customize the interface of the booking calendar. Through the on-boarding wizard as well as the venues section of the dashboard you can change various display settings to your liking.

We hope our new calendar features go the extra mile in connecting you and all members of your workspace. Should you have any questions or need training on providing these services for your members, training can be found in the knowledge base of the WUNHD platform.  If you currently don’t have WUN Systems or are interested in picking up more services from WUN, you can click the button below to schedule a demo.

One of the most acclaimed features of the WUNHD Platform includes the Interactive Floorplan. Through our comprehensive workspace management platform, we offer a real-time view of your space, designed and branded to your preference. Our interactive floorplan has been commended by clients for helping monetize their spaces, providing thorough reporting, and featuring an easy-to-customize interface to keep your facility up to date. Through our dashboard, you can upload your own floorplan specific to your location, and organize each area where your services and tenants are located. You are also able to color-code your floor plan specific to membership types and vacancies.

One of the inspirations behind the interactive floor plan was to enter the mind of department store manager, one who uses proprietary metrics to measure the profitability of every square inch of his store. Through the convenience of the dashboard as well as the implementation into our own CRM, this goal can be achieved. The interactive floor plan also grants the ability to view inventory and incorporate proposals. A virtual review of your occupancy, availability, and rent history can be viewed for each office.

Furthermore, if your space is going through any changes, you can always update and/or rebrand the live floorplan to capture the data going on in real time. This is fully customizable and runs in synchronization with all aspects of your workspace management including your calendar and booking options. Through the WUNHD CRM you can pull reports and analytics highlighting several factors including conversions, future occupancy, and onboarding.

When it comes to creating a smarter workspace, our interactive floorplan helps provide a blueprint for maximizing the potential of your space.

White-Label Your Workspace with WUN Systems

One of the, sorry…WUN of the things we pride ourselves most on is that our platform and services are white-label. Having been blessed with working with several beautiful Coworking and Shared Offices throughout the years is seeing how much the clients take pride in their space. Making it theirs. Many of them, adopt an identity of their own. Take for instance our friends at Quest Workspaces that we just did an installation for one of their soon-to-be-opened spaces. We optimized every facet of our technology to provide for their members…or as they call them, Questers.

Here is how you can white-label your workspace with the benefits of WUN Systems.

Coworking Technology and Infrastructure

When we send our engineers out on the job, we want to make sure that our components stay connected at all levels. That means keeping the Wi-Fi strong across every corner, having the right services to meet the demand of the operator as well as the members, and providing other amenities such as 24/7 door access control so you can stay operational after hours with less overhead and staff on hand. Most importantly, we serve to make sure our installation matches the aesthetic of the office. As demonstrated by our one of our top engineers, Reese.

Handling Operational Complexities

More often than not one of the biggest issues facing operators is that they find more of their time spent on working for their space, rather than working on it. It’s our belief that our solutions are suited to your needs and designed to place operators in a position of expansion. Through the automation of the WUNHD Platform, operators now have a better grasp on their branding. Giving them….not to sound corny but…

freedom

Branded Communication.

One of the biggest elements to building a community within the workspace is communication. We revamped WUNHD to empower communication on a whole different level. Not only can you organize events, connect all members, and provide booking features for both members and guests, we now added the option to customize your announcements and emails through HTML templates. Now you can create invitations, notices, and most importantly, party announcements in your own image.

It’s been an honor having the opportunity to work with beautiful workspaces all over the United States and beyond. We hope to feature more of the places we work with in the coming year. Just be sure to keep our email in your branded-party invites.

Special thanks to Quest Workspaces for the Photos, btw! See you at the grand opening in a few weeks!

We are very thankful for the year we just had. WUN Systems expanded itself in every possible way in 2016. We expanded our headquarters in Miami and opened a new distribution facility in Reno, NV for better service to our customers. Once again, Inc. magazine rated us as one of America’s fastest-growing businesses. With 2017 around the corner, we have every intention to take this growth even further. Here are some excited new features to the WUNHD platform look forward to.

“Smarter” Visitor Management

One of the biggest additions to the WUNHD platform is the integration of the iPad digital visitor management application, Greetly. Through Greetly, visitors can directly notify hosts of their arrival, state the reason for their visit (food and package deliveries, for instance) and directly book future meetings. Best of all, Greetly syncs directly with the WUNHD platform. We’ve seen Greetly make a major difference in the way offices and workspaces are organized.

Advanced Booking Features

One of the biggest overhauls that came with our newly designed member portal was the enhancements made to our Guest Booking process. To further empower our workspaces, we’ve allowed for mobile booking for our guests. Guests can also directly book spaces through an email confirmation. Through this process, guests can find options for requests, check-ins, changes, and cancellations.

Community and Collaboration

As mentioned in a recent guest post by our marketing manager, technology in Coworking and Shared Offices should always be optimized for community.  We feel the new changes to WUN Systems reflect that desire. We’ve worked to improve our reservations, directory, and most importantly communication features to keep everyone in the workspace connected with methods that are both efficient and convenient. This goes from our customizable white-label messaging system to our advanced billing features.

These are three features we feel will make a big difference for our clients and their members come 2017. However, we are expecting more changes along the way in 2017. We should be coming near a very big year in terms of evolution.
