Roadmap 2018

2017 was an amazing year for OfficeR&D. We released a lot of great new features and improvements.

Of course, we have bigger plans for 2018. After lots of conversations, brainstorming sessions and customer discussions, we created the first version of our Roadmap for 2018:

You can connect with me at miro@officernd.com if you want to discuss our roadmap. I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.

Every feature links to an item in our dynamic roadmap where you can subscribe for updates.

Member Tools

We are more committed than ever to providing the best and most complete digital user experience for your members. That’s why a big part of our Roadmap for 2018 is geared toward your Members.

Members Web Portal

Mobile App

Management Tools

We’ll continue to innovate and create better management capabilities, more automation, and better integrated and connected flexible workspace.

Management Platform

Possible Third-party Integrations

Please, note that these are direct integrations we’re planning to work on over the next months but we can’t commit that they will all fit into 2018.

Add-ons & Extensions

In 2018, we’ll be aiming to connect more and more points of your shared workspace.

Meeting Room Tablet App

  • Check in/Check out – add an option to require members to check-in, otherwise the room might be released; Also, provide check-out to release the room if you finish early;
  • Direct bookings – allow members to book directly from the tablet;

Front-desk Tablet App (NEW)

Of course, a huge part of our planned work for 2018 is to continue improving all the existing functionality, integrations and better support you and your growing businesses.

Even more, we’re already working on massive User Interface & Experience face-lift that will span through all our products, from the Management platform, to the Mobile app, Member portal, and all Extensions. It is going to be Great!

These are a lot of items, right? Sure, they are. But our growing team and drive to completely connect your flexible workspace motivate us even more to continue our amazing product journey. ?

You can connect with me at miro@officernd.com if you want to discuss our roadmap. I’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas.

Ideas Board and What’s coming in 2017

We’re not short on ideas here at OfficeR&D. We also have awesome customers who aren’t short on ideas, either. Having many ideas is a great opportunity and also a huge responsibility. We need to ensure that we deliver the best ideas, quickly, on time and perfectly crafted.

OfficeR&D Ideas board and Roadmap 2017

In order to do so, we want to introduce you to our Trello board for awesome ideas that happen to be our official roadmap too. ?

We will use the board to:

  • Communicate our development effort.
  • Organize and prioritize our work.
  • Collect your feedback.

Often the more ambitious features have to wait so we can get the essentials right. It’s exciting to imagine what the future looks like but hey, sometimes a billing bug might be more important and cause new feature delays.

In order to better understand how we work, we’d love to share our product development ethos:

  • Listen and understand you;
  • Move fast, break things;
  • Great user experience is great;
  • MVP (minimum viable product) every feature; 
  • Less is more.

Have a look at the board and let us know your thoughts.

Dashboard Improvements

We will restructure the dashboard to feature your space now (today) vs. this month, or dive in deeper reports and analytics.
