Idea

Easy sharing of office desks, meeting rooms, and other resources on a 3D map interface. We make it easy to cut office costs or scale the office when needed. The ultimate solution in a remote work era.

Current Status

Operating in over 10 countries, with many paying customers, enterprise organizations, government agencies, and coworking spaces.

We are approaching 10 000 users and the revenue is increasing!

Market

Any organization with an office
Any organization with employees
Especially:
IT companies, Financial companies, Government institutions, universities, coworking spaces and more.

Problem or Opportunity

Almost every office that is run in a traditional way is underutilized. The effect has become even more dramatic during pandemics because of the increase in remote work, but it has been happening anyway even before pandemics.

We make the office efficient and flexible, convenient to use by the employees.

Another problem we solve is internal communication, in a flexible office, it is difficult to know who is coming, when, and where they will be sitting. We solve with both of those things, including the communication about

Solution (product or service)

We have a 3D-map-based web app that makes reserving a desk as easy as making 3 taps on your phone in under 5 seconds. Just give your employees the address (customer.desk.me) and ask them to go there to reserve the desk, that is usually enough. An intuitive interface does the rest of the job.

It is a hot segment, but no leader.

Advantages or differentiators

We have a unique understanding of the office industry from both the corporate and coworking perspectives and we know how to connect those two worlds together for maximum efficiency and the best user experience.

Basically, we are combining many different technologies and methods in a new way, such a way that we did not see anyone else do yet.

Finance

Service subscription, per desk per month. OTC: hardware, 3D map modeling service. Future: commissions from generated leads for portal-participating and network customers (biggest revenue generation potential in the long term).

Business model

SaaS monthly subscription, based on the number of shared resources (desks, meeting rooms, parking spots etc.) and on the number of locations in the service.

The long-term goal, when a bigger network is established, is to launch a commission-based listing.

Money will be spent on

1. Scaling activities, marketing, emphasis on sales activities.
2. Hardware development, injection molds for lower unit cost manufacturing, funding for manufacturing batches.
3. Employee salaries.
