We built the Proximity Platform to solve one simple problem: We needed a solution to manage our coworking spaces. After more than a year of searching, we came up dry. No platform offered an integrated solution with powerful features yet was easy to use—much less at an affordable price.

So we built our own system to make our spaces easier to manage. That was the whole plan. But it didn’t quite work out the way we intended. Other spaces started to hear about our platform (we hadn’t even named it yet) and we realized that maybe we weren’t the only ones who needed a better way to do coworking.

After refining our system with expanded features and lots of feedback we launched the Proximity Platform and quickly grew our network to over 400 connected coworking spaces.

And then, the pandemic hit.

And while the rush to figure out “the new normal” was happening, and while the world was feeling less connected and more scattered than ever, we knew we had the technology to bridge the gap for businesses that were trying to keep up.

So, with some research, a few adjustments, and a lot of coffee, our workplace side of the company was born, and we opened up Proximity to businesses looking for an office management platform to navigate this new hybrid work world.

Whether you’re a coworking space or managing a business, we’re so glad to be connected with you!
