Neetish Sarda on the importance of technology in flexible workspaces
Posted on January 5, 2022
Neetish Sarda believes that technology, which has always been a catalyst for productivity, will be further emphasized to meet the changing demands of the new workplace. As we step into the new normal and workplaces are redesigned, technology will be the driving force.
As the leader of India’s largest provider of managed office space, Smartworks, Neetish Sarda understands the evolving dynamics of the real estate industry and the growing demand for flexible workplaces. Instead of taking over his family businesses, he pursued his entrepreneurial dream of redefining the workspace experience using technology, services and design innovation. Neetish launched Smartworks in 2016, which has now become the largest and most popular managed office space for businesses in India. With a growing footprint of over 5 million square feet in nine major cities, Smartworks provides innovative office solutions to businesses, multinationals, SMEs, startups and large conglomerates.
According to Neetish, a futuristic shared workplace will be a smart office that optimizes space and harnesses cutting-edge technology to provide employees with a collaborative, flexible and productive environment. Technology will help keep an employee happy – from booking meals to accessing various subscription plans used by the workplace. With the push of a button, the employee should have instant access to shared facilities and services. Touching any surface for a utility has to become minimal in the new world. Thus, equipment powered by IoT will allow a user to control lights or projectors through the mobile phone. Analyzing the use of big data or RM predicts trends and provides actionable insights.
Under Neetish’s leadership, Smartworks recently launched its technical arm, “Smartworks Technology Services, a workspace management solution that enables homeowners and organizations around the world to manage their real estate needs.” “Technology has been at the heart of our managed offices since our inception and will now serve as a key catalyst in taking our business-focused workspace solutions to the next level of growth. We are excited to step into new business horizons and offer these SaaS platforms to organizations around the world to handle all of their real estate needs. Built in-house for improved performance and efficiency, our 400+ customers are already benefiting from these technology solutions, ”said Neetish Sardain in a company announcement.
