We love talking and engaging with our DeskLodgers and community on daily basis. We have some amazing teams and individuals who from from our spaces and we wanted to learn some more about them.
With that in mind we wanted to shine a spotlight on why one of our teams would choose a coworking space as a base for their business and how coworking works for them.
We spoke with resident DeskLodgers Sapphire Technologies from our Basingstoke work space, who share their experiences as a growing company who have been able to organically expand within our space.
How long have you been at DeskLodge Basingstoke ?
We moved in a week before Easter 2018, so have been here for just under a year. We first took an office space in the New York area and have since expanded into Route 66 on the second floor.
Why did you choose DeskLodge and a coworking environment?
As a growing cyber security company, we needed a regional office that gave us a fixed desk environment that we could expand into quickly. Desklodge gives us great flexibility with our own secured area, lots of meeting space for all our visitors and co-working for when we need more space quickly. The Co working environment also gives us a social element that can sometimes be missed in smaller offices.
3) How has DeskLodge helped your business improve productivity and any other pains you’ve had as a business?
We have plenty of customer and partner visitors so having a good selection of meeting rooms is vital for us. It’s a great environment to work in and our team has definitely increased collaborative working. We have strong growth plans and having office capacity to expand quickly is very useful for us.
4) What do you enjoy the most about working at DeskLodge Basingstoke ?
I love seeing people’s faces when they first come in and see the space. It’s a really good mix of a professional working environment but one that isn’t too serious. It’s great that we can enjoy our workplace.
