From commodity to SAAS (space as a service) - who dares wins
The barriers between the live/work divide are blurring and ushering in a new era of space as a service. It is no longer enough for an office to be simply a piece of real estate; occupiers want facilities and technologies that not only let them do their jobs, but foster wellbeing and a sense of community. In the age where on-demand is king, offices and the services they offer must evolve to take the form of what their occupiers want, when they want them. More than ever, landlords and occupiers need to work together to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to creating offices for the streaming generation.
