“We just opened a coworking space and don’t have hundreds of dollars to spend on coworking space software. What should we do?”
A variety of coworking company options make it simple to manage your shared space. In addition to Proximity, you may be familiar with OfficeRnD and Nexudus (Click here to see how CoWello compares).
CoWello and Proximity both have their pros and cons, but which is the right solution for your coworking space? Let’s find out.
Our Take on Proximity
Proximity offers solutions for coworking spaces, commercial real estate, hybrid offices, and workspace insurance. Their coworking space solution starts at $139/mo for up to 40 members, but the price goes up to $529/mo if you want to add unlimited members. While this may seem like a large investment upfront, it could be worth it if your space is at a point where offering digital keys via mobile apps is a valuable amenity.
Proximity is a good option for coworking spaces with door access controls, complicated member billing systems and conference room booking systems that need to be integrated. However, if you’re just starting out, that is likely more than you feel comfortable spending on software. If that’s the case, CoWello might be exactly what you’re looking for.
