Helping iQ Office Suites Stay On Top Of Managing Centers in Different Markets
iQ Office Suites is one of the leading owners & operators of serviced office facilities in Canada. Their flexible workspace solutions feature top quality design, furnishings, and technology, and are staffed by friendly and attentive people. They have a clear and simple commitment to their members: providing a customized service designed to inspire members and to deliver maximum flexibility and performance for their business.
iQ Office’s rapid expansion in the last few years came with the challenge of too much operational overhead, inability to report on key business metrics and the management of centers in multiple markets, with multiple jurisdictions.
OfficeRnD plays a key role in helping them scale operations by:
"With OfficeRnD, the member facing services and the billing work extremely well together, so you don’t have to integrate it."
The iQ Office Suites’ team have always offered an extremely high level of service, but it became harder to maintain it when the company decided to hit the growth pedal.
They went from 2 locations to 5 locations almost overnight, and with ambitious plans to double that number again in 2019, they identified a number of challenges that had to be addressed:
Main operational processes such as managing memberships, bookings, and one-off purchases were not integrated into their billing system, which made sending out invoices at the end of the month too time-consuming and error-prone.
They didn’t have a quick and easy way to track key business metrics such as inventory, vacancy rates or forecasted revenue.
Their centers are located in multiple markets, with multiple jurisdictions, which required them to manage multiple Quickbooks accounts. It was just too much manual work.
Integrating Memberships, One-off purchases, and Bookings with Billing
The tight integration between OfficeRnD’s billing module (and it’s integration with Quickbooks) and the other key operation pillars the system handles (Memberships and Contracts, One-off purchases, Bookings took away a big chunk of the administrative responsibilities of the team.
Enabling members to self-service themselves
OfficeRnD’s mobile app allowed members to have control over basic everyday tasks such as booking a meeting room, downloading their past invoices or seeing what their balance is. This also lifted a great administrative burden from the IQ Office’s team, allowing them to focus on spending quality time with their members and making sure that they’re tending to their needs.
Providing quick and easy access to key workspace business metrics
