Managing Coworking Membership Benefits Before the Catalog
The Creative States is an innovative coworking network focused on customer care, support, and comfort. They offer a wide range of additional services & benefits that help members take care of themselves, their employees, and their businesses. These perks are related to healthcare, legal help, sport, traveling, and more.
- Creative States helps residents with HR & recruiting.
- Purchasing equipment for teams.
- Travel arrangements for business trips and vacations — airline tickets, hotel reservations, and more can be booked via community managers.
- Accounting & legal support — payroll, accounting, registration of legal entity, PE registration.
- Day-to-day needs — special deals with sports clubs, insurance companies, educational services.
- Partner programs with real estate agencies and car rental dealers.
We thoroughly pick out additional services and benefits to offer only the best products to our members. Residents really value that selective approach.
In the very beginning, an extensive list of members' perks was available in the form of presentations. However, Creative States quickly understood that this is not the most efficient way to showcase space benefits.
The essence of membership perks is that they should be easily accessible and frequently used by residents. Only then, those benefits add value to coworking space membership. So, Creative States decided to pack all additional discounted services and other goodies into a nice catalog accessible right from the member's smartphone.

There are plenty of resources/aggregators offering discount coupons online. However, hunting for those time-sensitive offers is not the best occupation for a busy entrepreneur. Benefits catalog compiles only awesome services that are available at the moment at maximum discounts.
