Ayala Land Offices (ALO), the office leasing arm of Ayala Land, Inc., recently opened its latest flexible, co-working space under the brand name Clock In in Vertis North, a sprawling mixed-use development of its parent company in Quezon City.
The new Clock In occupies 800 square meters of space on the sixth floor of Vertis North Corporate Center 1, which is in close proximity to critical transportation hubs, major Metro Manila arteries, a slew of retail establishments, residential properties and hotels.
It is the fourth Clock In flexible workspace to go online since Ayala Land entered the shared office space business in 2017, after the one at the Penthouse of the Makati Stock Exchange building in Makati City and the other two in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig City. Three more are scheduled to open by the end of the year — at The 30th in Pasig City, at Ayala North Exchange in Makati City and Alabang Town Center in Muntinlupa City.
According to Carol Mills, Vice President and Head of Ayala Land Offices, rapid advancements in mobile technology and connectivity are changing the way people work, resulting in jobs that are based online and the realization of businesses that tasks can be performed under flexible conditions.
“We are leveraging the synergies of Ayala Land to address the growing demand for shared spaces that inspire innovation and collaboration,” she said.
At the opening of Clock In Vertis North, she said they were pleased with the occupancy of Clock In Makati and BGC, noting that the take-up was fast within the first year.
“We were able to expand our tenant base to include start-up companies, small, medium enterprises and companies that perhaps could not have been able to locate in our traditional offices,” Ms. Mills said.
A flexible workspace like Clock In has huge advantages such as fully furnished facilities and services. Its plug-and-play simplicity meshes well with the always-on-the-go work styles prevalent today. It also entails low start-up costs and flexible lease terms and provides passport access across all Clock In locations.
That’s why it’s incredibly popular among start-ups, small and medium-sized enterprises, digital nomads, freelancers, road warriors and swing-space seekers, and it is beginning to catch on with large corporates, specifically those that deploy project-based teams in satellite offices.
Designed as a modern twist to an English pub, Clock In Vertis North features a workspace that can seat up to 185 people, fostering collaboration and productive discourses among tenants. It has 23 private offices, a 28-seater co-working space, two meeting rooms (an 8-seater and a 12-seater), and an event space for a variety of purposes, including company presentations, product launches and mixers.
All tenants get to enjoy fast Internet connection of up to 80 mbps, maintenance services, administrative and IT support, unlimited supply of coffee and tea, among other perks.
Ms. Mills added, “In this fast-paced digital world, new skills and business models are needed to thrive. Companies are recognizing that in order to attract and retain top talent, they need to be more community-minded and this should be reflected in the kind of work environment they provide. Clock In by Ayala Land Offices offers the environment for the new generation of businesses to begin.”
