We are in a market of high ticket transactions and it was just about making a product which could truly address the pain points of the enterprise consumer.

Smeet Gala, Founder, CEO Workamp, an emerging co-working space in Mumbai added,

Office design by FlipSpaces and Gloob was great for a co-working concept. They worked on the psyche of a potential co-worker and helped design spaces that could promote collaboration in spaces which has worked out really well for us.

In the first 25 members itself we are looking at member companies doing business with each other. A general feedback has also been about the space infusing creativity and helping each co-worker to increase their productivity of work while working from WorkAmp.

FlipSpaces also allows users to generate the exact cost-estimate for services and products chosen by them real-time thus letting them have a check on their budget.
