    ShareDesk, a marketplace for coworking spaces which launched in 2012 and has signed up over 2,400 venues in 70 countries since then, has revealed Optix, a cloud-based platform to make running a shared office easier.

    The platform allows venue managers to control all aspects of managing a space. Optix includes features like real-time venue availability and instant booking. It aims to simplify transactions and coordinating member activity.

    The system combines billing and payments, CRM and analytics about usage to give venue managers insights on how they can make the most of their space.

    ShareDesk says it’s aiming to achieve a 150 to 200 percent increase in utilization for workspaces with 100 desks. It’s particularly pitching the system at offices that are still reliant on Outlook or paper-based systems.

    Optix plans start at $100 a month for 50 members and one venue. For 100 members at one venue, it’ll cost you $200 a month. If you’ve got over 250 members or more and want to run the system across multiple venues, there’s a $500 plan.
