“In the current scenario, enterprises are re-assessing their existing conventional office spaces and long-tenured leases.

The members use ‘SW Super App’ to book meeting rooms, order food, give feedback and book Flexi-desks, among others services and amenities without using the communal touch screens.

“Owing to the uncertainty brought on by the pandemic, corporates are actively evaluating flex spaces as a potential solution, that allows them to save their CAPEX and yet achieve their office space requirements,” said Gautam Saraf, Managing Director – Mumbai and New Business, Cushman & Wakefield.
