For burgeoning coworking spaces, IT management is half the battle. Navigating the ins and outs of network connectivity and security, as well as hardware and software, can be quite the undertaking for coworking franchise owners without a background in technology.
Technology is a key feature of shared workspaces, so having high-quality, seamless IT support is crucial. That’s why Venture X has partnered with the leader in co-working technology, essensys, to provide franchise owners with enterprise-grade, mission-critical IT infrastructure that ensures ease of use for them and their customers.
“Our mission is to create a flexible, modern and innovative work environment that allows professionals and entrepreneurs to work with ease and peace of mind. With essensys as a vendor partner, we will continue to prove that Venture X is the most comprehensive and technologically forward company in our industry,” said Venture X President Jason Anderson.
The Importance of IT Infrastructure for Coworking Franchise Spaces
Coworking spaces are designed to provide members with the space and tools they need to connect and collaborate. That said, reliable, robust internet access is a core requirement for a superior experience for members.
With varying types of customers – from independent freelancers to large enterprise organizations – shared workspace franchise owners are faced with a wide range of technology needs. While independent workers and smaller businesses primarily work through cloud-based technology and depend on consistent, high-speed internet connectivity, larger businesses may have more robust systems and security standards already in place and require more technical integration and support. And, shared workspace franchise owners need to have the IT support and flexibility to accommodate all members, no matter where they fall on that spectrum.
Other than providing a first-class customer experience, technology also impacts how effectively owners can manage large coworking spaces and how rapidly business owners can scale their operations.
