SAN FRANCISCO, March 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LiquidSpace, the largest real-time network for office space, announced today that it has successfully powered more than 2 million space bookings on its platform. The company is now seeking an additional 100 million square feet of office inventory listings to support rapid growth and strengthen its position as the industry's leading network for growing teams in search of office space.
Since its launch in 2011, LiquidSpace has successfully helped individuals and teams from more than 53,000 companies find and book office and meeting space. The company specializes in providing a vast range of workspaces that scale with businesses at every stage of growth and is reporting its own impressive growth today as total booked revenue has increased by at least 30 percent every month over the past six months. LiquidSpace's accelerated growth is being driven by the company's expansion last fall into longer term space transactions. Now for the first time, growing teams can find and book permanent office space with simple, flexible terms ranging from a month to a year or more. In addition, the company's enhanced network support and functionality now extends to the greater real estate community.
"As demand for flexible office space accelerates, our network is well-positioned to serve and connect each member of the broader commercial real estate supply chain, from startups and enterprise teams to Brokers, building owners and architects," said Mark Gilbreath, founder and CEO of LiquidSpace. "In addition to activating 100 million square feet of new listing inventory, we're ramping up supply initiatives to streamline onboarding and meet projected demand over the next year from startups and large enterprises."
Originally developed as a traditional, two-sided marketplace with hourly and daily space availability, LiquidSpace has grown to become the largest commercial real estate network for office space, providing greater flexibility than any other platform. LiquidSpace offers real-time access to on-demand workspaces including meeting rooms, coworking and private office space as well as ongoing office solutions for growing teams - from move in ready office suites for 50 person teams to designated desks for individuals.
"This week our team moved into a new office in San Francisco that we found and rented through LiquidSpace," said Natalia Panowicz, Chief Operating Officer at Codility. "Using LiquidSpace was super fast, simple and gives us the flexibility that we need as a rapidly growing company. What a difference compared to the traditional way of finding an office. A few months ago, when we knew we had outgrown being in a coworking environment, we went through the traditional channels of finding an office or sub-lease and were frustrated to receive an aggressive 50-page lease for three years. With LiquidSpace, we found a great space our team is excited about and decided to commit to 6 months and then month to month after that. This is the perfect solution for us right now."
