India’s largest Co-working company, AWFIS Space Solutions has entered the city of Mumbai by offering a seat for an attractive price of only ₹400 per person per day in key commercial locations which include Churchgate, Lower Parel, Andheri West and Powai.
Co-working or Shared offices provide professionals who are on the move within a city as well as between cities with a shared working environment, as well as flexibility for independent activity across the country. The product is targeted at start-ups, SMEs, mobile professionals, as well as lawyers, CAs, journalists amongst others who are looking at value for cost effective work and meeting spaces.
AWFIS is the first company in this space which has introduced a simple mobile app that enables users to find and book office and meeting spaces in its centres across the country. Just like taxi booking apps, users can book workspaces and meeting rooms on a real time. Bookings can be made for durations ranging from 1 hour to 11 months.
It has also introduced another major innovation for its users. Apart from its own managed pro-working spaces, Awfis is offering a large repository of listed third-party meeting rooms in hotels in various cities which can be booked on real time basis in a matter of seconds.
AWFIS has already tied up with leading hotel brands like Lemon Tree Hotels, Hyatt, Trident amongst others across India, for booking of their meeting rooms in business centres.
Commenting on the launch of AWFIS co-working spaces, Mr. Amit Ramani, Founder & CEO, AWFIS Space Solutions Private Limited said, “India is currently witnessing a revolution in the start-up and entrepreneurial culture, triggering a rise in the mobile working population. We are in process of creating the largest network of managed work spaces and meeting rooms that will enable users to find a space within a 10 minute driving distance across all major metros. The Anytime, Anywhere network of spaces will provide the ability to work near home to the young Indian workforce”
AWFIS is also partnering with India’s leading real estate companies and hospitality players, and aggregating the under-utilized work-spaces, meeting rooms, for creation of Awfis centres. All the centres and managed and operated by Awfis team providing a consistent and streamlined customer experience.
