“ is part of our strategy to deepen our offer to meet the needs of our three customers: occupier clients, owner landlords and the operators of flexible space. With search for flexible and traditional workspace converging, this platform adds to our ability to match demand with supply.” -Tim Rodber, CEO of The Instant Group


The Rising Demand for Flex-Office

Flexibility has become the cornerstone of the modern workforce, and the demand for flex office spaces has witnessed an unprecedented surge. Businesses are recognizing the need for adaptable workspace solutions that can accommodate the evolving needs of their teams. Whether it’s scaling up, downsizing, or embracing a hybrid work model, flexible office space offers the versatility that traditional leases simply cannot match.

Enterprises are drawn to the flexibility of short-term leases, the ability to customize office layouts, and the convenience of fully furnished spaces. This trend is particularly evident among startups, tech companies, and even established corporations looking to optimize their real estate portfolios in a rapidly changing business environment.


Bringing Stakeholders Together

To effectively meet the growing demand for flexibility and optionality,  an integrated platform that serves tenants, brokers, and property owners is proving to be indispensable. This all-in-one solution streamlines the leasing process, making it more efficient and transparent for all stakeholders across the workspace ecosystem.

  • Analytics and reporting tools enable property owners to make data-driven decisions, optimizing their offerings to meet market demand.


Importance of Matching Demand with Supply

In the realm of commercial property spaces, particularly flexible space, it’s increasingly critical to match demand with supply. A balanced marketplace ensures that tenants find spaces that meet their specific requirements while property owners and operators maximize occupancy rates and revenue.


Dynamic Market Response:

  • Real-time matching of demand with supply allows the market to respond dynamically to changing preferences and trends.
  • Property owners can adjust offerings based on demand data, optimizing their portfolio to align with market needs.
