Most workspaces are independently-operated and have rapidly increasing member numbers (up 50% in 2 years). In our experience these existing spaces use a seemingly random collection of email, calendars, spreadsheets and manual processes which are administratively heavy and time-consuming. Coherent aims to provide a simple, affordable and scalable solution that handles everything in one place, from client data, bookings and resource management, to invoicing and payment collection. It integrates with best of market products such as Mailchimp, Eventbrite, Go Cardless and Xero. And Coherent also allows workspaces to join together to form their own networks, allowing coworkers to connect, interact and collaborate. We partnered with award-winning development studio Simpleweb to build phase 1 and 2 of Coherent. The platform is designed to be intuitive, resilient and scalable. We are currently in closed beta testing with five workspaces, and our beta customers include Spike Island, The Forge, Howkapow, Edventure and Mendip Hub. Phase 3 is already scoped and includes an enhanced feature set based on user feedback.
