Flipspaces, India’s leading commercial interiors venture has launched REBOOTSPACES, a line of products and services that focuses on creating next generation commercial spaces that are intuitive, empathetic, and safe, along with ergonomic workspaces to facilitate a seamless home office experience.
Backed by a research-based consultative approach, REBOOTSPACES presents brands with an integrated offering of products ranging from Social Distancing, Hygiene and Sanitisation and Touchless Automation mapped specifically to a brand’s requirements.
Commenting on this move, Vikash Anand, Director – Sales and Marketing, Partner, Flipspaces said that commercial real estate leasing and expansion is expected to bounce back after a muted demand for the first quarter post lockdown since such physical spaces cater to what working professionals look for, which is culture, community, and connection. However, the fundamental tenets of work and workspace design will change, so will the products that go into a workspace. Smart products promoting Social Distancing, Hygiene and Sanitisation and Touchless Operations will be in demand and the REBOOTSPACES portfolio provides exactly that.
India has 45 million SMEs alone which employ approximately 11% of the working population of the country. This workforce works from different commercial spaces (offices, retail stores, healthcare and education institutions, hospitality outfits) spread across the country. REBOOTSPACES product line is focussed on helping brands restart their operations while providing a secure and hygienic work environment for their teams.
Ankur Muchhal, Co-Founder, Director – Research and Development said that smaller outbreaks of the COVID-19 virus are expected to keep happening for a longer time. The smallest of such instances can bring businesses to a screeching halt. Hence, business owners will place hygiene at the very top of their priority list ensuring a safe and productive work environment for their employees and clients.
To demonstrate their commitment towards providing a safe environment to the frontline Corona warriors, Flipspaces has also launched a series of outreach activities to address sanitization challenges including installation of Automated Sanitization Booths in police stations across Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore. These automated sanitization booths prove to be effective in disinfecting visitors in high footfall areas owing to a no-touch process.
As a sign of a new normal being reached in terms of business operations, several large MNCs like Tech Mahindra and TCS and many leading startups have instituted work from home options for sections of their workforce. To address the thought shift, REBOOTSPACES has also launched a Home Office Solutions line which addresses the need for working professionals to have a seamless and distraction-free remote working experience.
Mrinal Sharma, Director -Operations, Partner, Flipspaces said that in this changing business environment, a special focus needs to be put on Home Office Options for certain sections of the workforce which can work remotely without loss of productivity. This will help reduce operational and real estate costs for brands and also provide greater safety and time and cost-saving for team members.
Flipspaces has leveraged their domain knowledge in workplace strategy with global experience in designing and building for Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, and coworking spaces to put together resources required to fight this pandemic and adapt to a changed world of commercial interiors.
