The Flex Space Revolution is Here

Making flexible
workspace work better
for building owners

Businesses are increasingly seeking flex space in order to stay agile and adapt quickly to changes. But only 13% of occupiers think that traditional landlords have a strong flex offering. The reasons for the gap are clear. The current flex space model is anything but flexible for building owners. As more and more businesses look for short-term leases, owners need a way to offer it on their terms.

TROT is the solution.

Flex space is projected to increase dramatically in the next decade

The right technology can make life easier for owners and businesses.

Half of tenants would be willing to pay a premium of 20% or above for flex space with tech-driven amenities.

Over 80% of landlords surveyed said that a risk associated with not deploying technology in flex space is missed monetization opportunities from as-a-service business models.

When asked how they would rank the operational benefits of using flex space, the two highest ranked options for business owners were either “ease of reconfiguring existing space to make it flexible” and the “ease of moving into and beginning use of space.” TROT enables Trotters to browse and book spaces instantly, so they can move in and get to work quickly.
