HAMBURG, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--More than 1.5 million customers now use its workspace to get their work done, announces Regus, the global workplace provider. It's another sign of the global shift to flexible working.
Regus' 1.5 millionth customer, Boris Konau, is a good example of the trend. Traditionally, a University of Hamburg PhD student like Boris would have written up his thesis in the university library or at home. But he finds these locations too distracting.
Instead, he's following the example of 1.5 million other individuals worldwide and using flexible workspace at Regus. He’s more productive, it's easy to travel to, and with 24/7 access he can go there at exactly the hours he wants. He doesn't have to lock into a long-term lease, or waste time or money equipping an office.
Mark Dixon CEO of Regus commented: "Our customer base is growing because the productivity boost and flexibility we offer is so compelling. Our 1.5 million customers use our space according to their own timescale and budget, rather than being straitjacketed in fixed leases. More and more entrepreneurs and small start-ups are using Regus because of our modern and easy to use spaces located in tech, design and university hubs in cities around the glove. Together with our on-the-go Third Place locations in railway stations and motorways people are working wherever they want, whenever they want - whether it's closer to home to cut commuting, or on an exciting project in a new overseas market - we make that possible.
"From individuals to global household names, the customers who come through our doors can work more productively and cost-effectively thanks to our flexible workspaces. That's why we now have more than 1.5 million customers."
