Members have always been able to book resources such as hot desks and meeting rooms through the Nexudus Members' Portal, but one of our latest features makes the process much more transparent and straightforward.
Cue “Floor Plans”, the feature that enables you to represent your space’s facilities and its amenities in a more meaningful way.
Prospective users who may never have visited your space before can now visualise it in a bird’s eye format. Both users and existing members can compare pricing, size, availability and the resource’s position within your building to make a more informed booking decision.
What’s more, they can book multiple resources at once to save time.
When setting up floor plans for your workspace, you can add offices, dedicated desks, hot desks, meeting rooms, board rooms and any other resources that are unique to your centre. You can also add amenities to each recourse, such as AV equipment in meeting rooms.
Members can see which resources and amenities are available at any given time through the Members' Portal and go from there. This new feature also makes it easier for coworking operators who are implementing distancing measures in their space, by, for example, only making 50% of hot desks available to existing members.
The floor plans feature is also a useful addition when it comes to reporting, enabling you to gain quick insights into occupancy levels for dedicated/ hot desks and meeting rooms.
How to create a floor plan using Nexudus
To display a resource on the Members’ Portal, you firstly need to make it available on the portal and connect it to a floor plan “item”.
Ideally, the first thing you need to create a floor plan is an architectural sketch. As soon as you’ve created the floor plan you can add and edit the items on each floor.
If, for instance, your building contains multiple floors, you can add additional floor plans and edit them so that they are representative of each (for example, the ground floor may contain hot desks and the first floor may feature private offices and meeting rooms).
We understand that coworking space layouts change all the time and that reconfiguration is particularly common at the moment, at a time when operators are experimenting with alternative arrangements to adhere to physical distancing measures.
As such, we’ve made it quick and easy for you to edit your floor plans.
Steps to creating a floor plan
Creating a floor plan is easy; just follow these 5 steps.
1. In the side menu, go to Inventory then Floor Plans.
2. Click “Add new floor plan”.
3. In the “Name” box, type a name for your floor plan, e.g. Floor One.
4. In the “Background Image” section, click “Upload Image” and navigate to a drawing of the location you want to upload (it must be jpg or png and you should aim to keep images under 4000px in height or width.).
4. Select a scale for the image; 20% is a good default value for most images.
5. Click “Save”.
Once you’ve created a floor plan, you can add meeting rooms, desks and offices and more.
Further information on how to create and edit floor plans can be found in our virtual Support Centre. You’re also more than welcome to get in touch with the Nexudus team if you have any further questions. Let us know how you get on!
The Nexudus coworking management platform acts as a go-between for all your apps. It integrates with payment providers, access control systems, accounting software and many, many more. Instead of having dozens of disparate systems in different places, Nexudus conveniently centralises them. Read on to find out about 10 tools and integrations for coworking that we think are essential when it comes to running a space effectively.
Save Time & Keep Your Members Engaged With The New Members' Portal The new interface is much faster than before, it comes with Google Calendar integration, options for self-hosting, and the ability to replace or add components by accessing the code in the different pages too. With the new Basket system, you can review your products and add discount codes before finalising your purchase. You can also edit your purchases and make amendments to it!
Nexudus Explore is a new reporting tool that enables you to analyse different parts of your business by collecting data and storing it in easy to navigate reports. It’s a powerful resource that contains information on how your customers and contacts interact with your space.
Zapier is a “connector” that enables you to integrate the different apps you use. Think of it as a translator that gets apps - including Nexudus - talking to each other and working together. Its main purpose is to save people time by automating tasks. What’s more, you don’t have to be a software developer to navigate it. With a bit of practice, anyone can use it.
We integrate with SALTO because they’re one of the access control industry’s leaders. The company’s API-first approach is unique in the access control world and gives full control to its partners, enabling real-time and seamless sharing of information. Nexudus’ collaboration with SALTO’s KS system allows for seamless transfer of members’ bookings from one system to another, providing operators with autonomy over how space is utilised.
Smart integrations also allow operators to remain resilient in challenging circumstances. As well as saving money and making the customer journey more streamlined, smart software can significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for human interaction, which is particularly useful at the moment when everyone is trying to practice physical distancing.
We have just launched NexClicker, a digital tally counter that allows you to count in and out everything entering your workspace. Limit the number of people within your workspace, click them in, and click them out! Social Distancing in a coworking might mean you need to limit your capacity. NexClicker gives you an easy way to count in and out everyone who accesses your flexible workspace.
Here, at Nexudus, we aim to adapt to changes and have seen this as an opportunity to keep supporting you and your members through our platform. This why we have launched Nexudus Virtual Rooms, a secure remote conference service powered by Jitsi.
We have launched a new integration between Nexudus and Zoom. With this integration, your members can start a conversation and or meeting in the community board, request meetings and allow your members to include a Zoom meeting link to every attendee who RSPV’d or purchased a ticket for each of your remote events.
Imagine being able to eliminate registration waiting lines, being able to optimise and speed up your events check-in process. With the seamless check-in APP by Nexudus, you no longer have to exhaust your imagination!
