As a greater number of people turn to freelance work and increasingly more startups look for unique sites to house their offices, coworking spaces have emerged to accommodate them. According to deskmag, there were 1,180,000 members enrolled across 13,800 spaces worldwide last year, with a high rate of growth recorded over several years.
Blending community with services and amenities, coworking spaces are designed provide the right atmosphere for freelancers and startups to work comfortably, surrounded by like-minded individuals.
Privacy for Landline Calls
In the digital age, a considerable proportion of the calls we make are on cellular phones. Freelancers are often on the move and may be required to take calls from wherever they are. Yet during important conversations, privacy and a clear line are invaluable for communication.
To minimize outside interference and potential disruption, it is common for coworking spaces to offer dedicated phone booths that can be reserved for an hour or two. These private spaces are also equipped with landline phones, which can provide a clear and stable connection.
Flexible Access to Desktop Computers
The flexibility offered by coworking is appealing to many freelancers and companies, as people have the opportunity to gain energy and inspiration from their unique environment.
Many coworking spaces offer a choice between using communally-shared spaces or a dedicated desk. The former give coworkers the freedom to move between desks as they wish (sometimes referred to as “hot desking”), while the latter allows individuals to establish their own personal space and rent a desktop computer to create the feeling of a more traditional office.
Coworking spaces may also provide access to shared computers, which people are free to use whenever required. These computers are particularly useful when a personal laptop is out of service.
Shared and Secure Wireless Printing
With so many people working on different projects in a single space, seamless access to wireless printing is of paramount concern. Freelancers are often out of the office as they hop from client meeting to client meeting and require access to printing capabilities even while they are on the go.
Samsung printers make wireless printing hassle-free. Users can print from anywhere using Cloud Connector Core, part of the Business Core modular suite of solutions, which can connect the printer to a range of cloud providers. This includes Google Cloud Print and Google One Drive for Business.
With a considerable number of people accessing the same printers in a coworking space, ensuring the tightest levels of printing security is essential. Startups and freelancers closely guard their intellectual property and may need to protect not only their own information, but also their client’s work and details.
Samsung printers are equipped with excellent control of user, document and network access at the enterprise level. The MultiXpress SL-X3220NR supports various authentication methods, print job protection, network security and protocols and hard disk protection. Administrators can manage the control panel and printing privileges, giving them greater supervision over security.
Shared devices make freelancers and startups feel at home in any coworking space. Landline phone calls, desktop computers and wireless printing with heightened security all work together to create a smart, modern environment for coworkers.
