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.

This also helps do away with the huge physical catalogues, which decor companies have to handle.

The web based application is designed exclusively for home/office decor market targeting new office buyers and tenants, developers, architect and interior designers among other industry players. It can also emerge as a strong platform for all vendors, suppliers and other major stake-holders in home decor industry.
