Page history last edited by PBworks 14 years, 1 month ago

This page is started as Jeff Osborne's notes. As of 3-05-06 it hasn't been consolidated with other similar info in the coworking wiki or beyond. It's intended to be a starting point. Please cultivate, link, mark up, tear down, otherwise deconstruct/expand.

 

Proposed Service Types:

 

1.) Walk in service for common area.

- For common area desk spaces.

- Rates are slightly lower than advance reserved common area desk space.

- Availability subject to reservation schedule.

- You fill a space by connecting to the network and confirming your use of the space for a given time frame.

- Subject to max. room capacity constraint.

- Applies to reservations made on the spot, with service beginning immediately.

- Variable rates for peak hours and off hours (?)

2.) Reserved service for common area.

- For common area desk spaces.

- Rates slightly higher than walk-in rates.

- Variable rates for peak hours and off hours (?)

3.) Walk in service for private office space.

- Walk in rates are lower to reflect "perishable" nature of product.

4.) Reserved service for private office space.

- Reserved rates are higher than walk in.

- Does this pricing model make any sense?

- How do we set pricing to encourage advance reservations, while also trying to move empty spaces?

5.) Dedicated monthly private office space.

- Is this desired?

- How to make it secure?

- Is charging per sq ft. appropriate?

6.) Walk in service for conference room space.

- This could be popular for impromptu group conversations that would otherwise dominate the common area.

- What about conversations that only need 5-10 minutes?

- Does the conference room stay locked or unlocked?

- Can we operate efficiently on an honor system?

7.) Reserved service for conference room space.

- Level of service and cleanliness should be predictable and consistent.

- Conference space should offer a value and aesthetic that is consistent with the space as a whole.

- Projectors, conference calling equipment, and other add on's could really make a difference.

8.) Special event pricing.

- Should special events be allowed to displace the "regulars"?

- They're important to community building.

- Potentially a good source of revenue.

- Potentially a good source of publicity.

- Potentially generate higher maintenance costs (clean up, etc.)
