Introducing Advanced Features for Desk Management Efficiency

Let’s get straight to the point. In today’s hybrid work environment, flexible hot-desk booking and the use of Desk Management Tools have emerged as a crucial tool for teams to collaborate effectively.

It provides an efficient way for teams to organize in-person meetings and brainstorming sessions, while simultaneously enabling Office Managers to optimize the use of office spaces.

In essence, it has completely revolutionized the way hybrid teams operate, making the logistics of office management significantly simpler and more streamlined.

Given the importance of such a tool, we’re excited to announce that we’ve taken Desk Booking to entirely new heights.

Our team has been working tirelessly to enhance its features, and the result is a more robust, user-friendly solution that will make the lives of Office Managers even easier.

Whether it’s overseeing the use of office spaces or coordinating team meetings, our improved Desk Booking Software is designed to handle it all with the utmost efficiency.

Make exclusive areas of the office more available

Do you know those frequently visited areas in your office? The ones that are always buzzing with activity, filled with an assortment of snacks and surrounded by the latest trendy office furniture? It can often be quite a challenge to find available slots in these spaces because they’re almost always completely booked.

But, there’s good news!

You can now implement Maximum Booking Durations.

This function ensures that everyone within your office has an equal opportunity to make bookings in these highly sought-after areas, fostering a sense of fairness and inclusivity.

Stay compliant with health and safety regulations

And while we’re on the topic of trendy office furniture, let’s talk about ‘leaning stools’ and ‘high seats’. They may be stylish, but have you ever thought about how long your employees are sitting on them? Whatever the seating may be, prolonged use could potentially lead to health issues, and that’s where our new feature comes in handy.

With Maximum Booking Durations, you can limit the time your employees spend on these seats, helping you not only maintain a trendy office but also comply with health and safety regulations.

This way, your office remains a place of comfort, productivity, and safety.

Make more spaces available by reducing over-booking

When it comes to the topic of exclusive areas within the office space, have you ever experienced a situation where a desk appears to be available, but in reality, it’s already been reserved by another colleague?

Perhaps your team managers are booking multiple desks on behalf of their teammates which tends to be quite common in hybrid workplaces.

Now, office managers have a solution to this problem. They can Limit Concurrent Bookings ensuring that their teams are not over-booking desks that aren’t required.

It’s a smart way of preventing individuals from booking multiple desks on behalf of their teammates who may not even turn up to the office.

By doing this, you can make sure that everyone in the office who truly requires a workspace will get one.

Get more accurate space usage data

Over-booked desks can also play havoc with your data. When desks are booked on behalf of teammates who may or may not show up, there’s no way of knowing how your spaces are actually being used.

Thats why placing a Limit on Concurrent Bookings is so important. It helps enforce the right procedures for booking desks, leading to accurate space usage data, and maximum desk management efficiency.

Kadence Flex: The Benefits of Access to Flexible Work Spaces Worldwide

In today’s world of work, managing Flexible Work Spaces can lead to a headache or two.

Whether a small startup or a multinational enterprise, you’re probably wrestling with the same questions: How do I provide space for a growing workforce? How do I coordinate a distributed team? Can I justify this long office lease?

Some companies have tackled these questions by going fully remote. But for those of us who value face-to-face collaboration, that’s not an option.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce Kadence Flex: a one-stop solution for flexible workspaces, all from within your hybrid operating platform.

Coordinate your teams with flexible work spaces

The flexibility offered by hybrid work is liberating, but it can also feel disorienting.

Bringing your employees into the office used to be a challenge. Now, with easy access to countless flexible workspaces — it’s a given.

Easily manage your distributed workforce with flex workspaces

With an overview of company offices and flexible offices near you, you can see exactly when and where your team is choosing to work. This enables your employees to get their best work done with the right people, in the right places.

Kadence Flex also aligns seamlessly with your hybrid policy. By analyzing usage patterns of offices and flexible workspaces, you can adapt your strategy to ensure that your workforce is productive and engaged.
