Having the right space is obviously an important part of creating a co-working environment, but there is so much more to it than that. Even after you’ve stocked up on all of the furniture and technical features, the manager of an all-in-one co-working space has a lot to consider.patrick-king-column

As co-working has grown in popularity, software companies have come to recognize the need for management tools that are specific to the needs of managing a co-working space. Here are a few tools for co-working managers that are looking to make their lives easier and increase the value they offer to members:

Each one comes with features that co-working members will appreciate. Many of these services also offer a free trial for managers that are trying to find the right co-working software for their space.
