Co-working startup WeWork has launched its on-demand mobile app in Singapore, Australia, United Kingdom, and Ireland, allowing users in these markets to easily book meeting rooms and workspaces, according to an announcement.
WeWork On Demand is the startup’s pay-as-you-go offering to access workspace and meeting rooms. It allows users to book workspace and meeting rooms through its iPhone and Android apps.
Since its initial launch in New York City just one year ago and growth to now more than 200 locations across North America, this expansion takes WeWork On Demand to nearly 300 locations across 47 major cities globally, including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Dublin, Singapore, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth.
“Now more than ever, flexibility is of utmost importance to both businesses and individuals as they navigate a new world of work. Leveraging our expansive portfolio of inspiring spaces in sought-after locations, WeWork On Demand fulfills the need for flexibility through accessible, convenient workspace in the era of hybrid work,” according to Samit Chopra, President & COO, International, at WeWork.
The international expansion follows strong growth and positive user feedback in North America, where monthly On Demand bookings for a workspace has quadrupled and room bookings more than doubled since March 2021.
With nearly 70,000 bookings to date, users are utilising WeWork On Demand to quickly arrange in-person meetings, find a dedicated workspace while traveling in another city, or secure rooms to collaborate with their teams, as per the announcement.
“We’re excited to welcome On Demand to our spaces in Australia and Singapore, allowing people to test the waters of hybrid working, find a space to collaborate, or access workspace away from home,” said Balder Tol, WeWork General Manager for Australia and Southeast Asia.
WeWork was founded in 2010 with the vision to create environments where people and companies come together and do their best work. Since opening its first location in New York City, it has grown into a global flexible space provider committed to delivering technology-driven flexible solutions, inspiring spaces, and unmatched community experiences.
