Collaborative Consumption


At Workspring, we’re passionate about collaborative consumption. There’s great empowerment in paying to access rather than paying to own, and we believe this concept is revolutionizing the way we all do business.

Paying to access vs. paying to own
“With various clients, banks, lawyers and corporations, we ask whether they will share amenities and other facilities with other people in a building, a reception, a meeting suite, etc. Oh shock and horror, no. But what about a post room, an archive facility or some amenity spaces such as staff cafes or training centers, or if you had some facilities on an on-call basis, rather than everybody have their own?” Katrina Kostic Samen, Teknion NeoCon 2012 panel.

In much the same way that an upper-echelon fitness club offers members the latest equipment, comforts and personal services as needed, Workspring embraces the philosophy of collaborative consumption, a business model gaining momentum based on the concept of sharing rather than owning resources.

You have likely already encountered examples of businesses who are also built on the collaborative consumption model. For example, Zipcar® is the world’s largest car-sharing business. You can find a car, when you need it, whether traveling throughout the United States, Canada or Europe.

Workspring provides an attractive option for companies that don’t have the real estate—or the financial resources for expansion—to host group and team meetings, as well as for off-site staff, satellite employees, mobile workers and independent professionals seeking premium office space to work and meet clients.

And by paying to access rather owning, each guest—from long-term member to a drop-in guest—enjoys access to invigorating spaces, gracious hosting, premium ergonomic seating, and all the latest tools and technology.

Ultimately, our collaborative consumption model is designed to provide a premium—and economically viable—work experience. To discover more about Workspring’s collaborative consumption model, see what Brad Powell from Office Insights shared.
