Commenting on the announcement, Matt Pope, MD of Space Connect:
“I am delighted to welcome these significant partners to our growing partner network for Space Connect. As well as increasing our number of partners, we are also now expanding the geographical reach for our products.
We continue to see increasing demand for Space Connect as businesses adapt to the concept of hybrid working plus other demands, as a result of the Covid pandemic. This growth is reflected in a recent market report issued by Verdantix, a consultancy focused on the workplace technology market, who estimate significant growth in the Space and Workplace Software market, seeing it increasing from $0.9bn in 2021 to $1.7bn by 2026. They cite “return to work initiatives” and “businesses focusing on implementing agile working policies” as being major drivers in this growth.
We have received encouraging feedback from these new partners, all experiencing similar increased demand for agile work space optimisation offerings from their own customers and we are now actively engaged with them on their first potential deals. Our value proposition of speed of deployment, ease-of-configuration and competitive pricing, will provide our partners with a compelling workplace optimisation offering for their clients.”
