Two years ago, Hotbox inventor Jamie Rothwell spotted a problem. Businesspeople were frazzled by their inability to book a hot-desk in co-working space. Adding to their frustration was the time wasted travelling on packed commuter trains, only to find every desk occupied.
The solution? Create a desk-booking system that secured a desk at the right time on the day the customer needed it. The idea simmered, until the seismic shift caused by Covid-19 and a chance conversation with eLocker owner Jacob Hinson focused Jamie’s mind.
Jamie said: “I was struggling to find the right technology to deploy a desk-booking tool cost-effectively and globally. That’s when I had a chat with Jacob and discovered eLocker’s SaaS platform was the perfect base for building a software solution.”
Jacob agreed, and set his in-house development team to work building a SaaS desk booking system from the ground up. Five months later, Sedes was born – paving the way for hassle-free desk booking whatever the future holds.
