WeWork, a leading global flexible space provider, is partnering with Yardi®, the leading provider of real estate software, to accelerate speed to market and deliver more enhanced capabilities to the already announced WeWork Workplace product. By partnering, the two organizations will provide companies of all sizes with a universal platform for powering and optimizing flexible workplace strategies. 

The rapid adoption of the flexible hybrid work model has forced businesses to rethink and optimize their office and space utilization strategies with an emphasis on creating a more seamless and purposeful employee experience. The partnership will merge Yardi’s industry-leading software and tech capabilities with current WeWork Workplace booking capabilities to create a software solution tailored for corporate enterprise users. This enhanced WeWork Workplace product, set to launch in July 2022, will help facilitate this transition and enable companies to offer their employees the ability to seamlessly book a desk, private office or conference room in any company-leased or owned office space, any WeWork location, or any affiliate of WeWork.
