Common Desk’s slew of locations throughout Texas—with more slated to open this year—has easily made it a major player in the coworking game. But, beyond that, the Dallas-headquartered company has a workday brand portfolio that includes coffee, wellness, and now, technology.
Introducing Ellum: Common Desk’s new mobile app that helps power coworking and additional amenities inside office buildings. With its robust back-end management technology, the Ellum app will allow members, landlords, and staff quick access to a location’s variety of hospitality features.
Ellum will provide event sign-ups, the ability to book conference rooms, a way to pay and receive direct delivery on coffee and snacks, an option for landlords to send gifts, and more. Common Desk said that the creation of the app aligns with its mission to “enhance every workday” by connecting people through amenities.
And, if you’re curious about the name, Common Desk’s first-ever location was in Deep Ellum.
“We want to bring best in class hospitality to as many people inside office buildings as possible, and the launch of Ellum is dramatically expanding the number of buildings our brands can service,” Nick Clark, founder and CEO of Common Desk, said in a statement. “Our brands are known for the way we treat our customers and Ellum will help us take it to a whole new level.”
At any Common Desk location or building spec suite (Ellum will work whether or not Common Desk is present), Ellum Tech “IoT buttons” will be placed around the space. After pressing the IoT button, a request can be placed and sent directly to the building’s onsite staff, with immediate feedback returned.
Ellum is also equipped with a web-facing platform. Common Desk members are able to use the web interface as a dashboard for invoices, member details, and team management, and Common Desk staff can control daily operations. And, it gives landlords a way to tap into data collected from their buildings.
Common Desk said Ellum will be rolling out this fall in a few buildings without coworking, with Dallas’ One Victory Park as the first installment. The company plans to expand the technology to locations across Texas later this year.
