Co-Working Spaces – how do they stack up?

Co-Working Spaces – how do they stack up?

What is co-working and would it work for you?

More and more businesses are moving away from owning their own premises and into the subscription style model of co-working offices. This isn’t a surprise to us, because this model fits with leasing cars, and of course our own business of leasing computers, but does co-working stack up? What are the positives and negatives, who uses them and do they work for everyone? We thought we’d do some research and share our findings with you here.

Who are Co-Working spaces aimed at?

An estimated 6% of the UK workforce are freelancers, that’s around 1.91 million people, and according to recent studies, this is set to escalate to approximately 50% by 2020.

The cheap alternative to hiring Computers for short term needs

We recently launched the HardSoft Creative Club, as a solution for our customers following numerous requests for the option of short-term hire of computer equipment. Leasing has numerous benefits for businesses, but sometimes you just need some kit to see you through a big project or an exhibition, and that’s where the Creative Club comes into its own.

Often clients commit to expensive computers with a specification they actually only need to use once in a blue moon. A typical example is taking an iMac Pro when its only needed to do the crunching twice a year. The Creative Club would allow a client to take a cheaper iMac 27″ i7, then get delivered the extra iMac Pro resource when it’s needed. read more
