For 2020, Swivel more than doubled its customer base and expanded into new markets including Denver, Los Angeles, Miami and Philadelphia, onboarded more than 1.5M in square footage of office space, and was recently honored with the 2020 Austin Inno on Fire Award. This continued company momentum speaks to significant market opportunity and demand for digital technology in office leasing during unprecedented times that is paving the way for property landlords to offer a more flexible product and tenant experience post-COVID.
"Early on in 2020, we unbundled our virtual touring and workspace leasing technology to meet the critical need for property landlords and their teams to maintain their business operations, and for tenants to maximize their office space investments. As a result, we have emerged as a trusted digital leasing platform for more than 70 properties and portfolios nationwide," said Swivel Co-Founder and CEO, Scott Harmon. “This year’s activity clearly demonstrates our responsiveness to changing market dynamics and customer needs and is a strong indicator of what we can expect for 2021.”
Swivel is a digital office platform enabling property owners and their teams to offer a digitally native customer experience for current and future tenants across all phases of the office lifecycle, including marketing, leasing and occupancy. Swivel is currently active in 21 markets, and plans to expand to 20 more new markets in 2021.
We believe the future of office space is digital, flexible, and supports a hybrid of remote and in-office teams. The entire office experience needs to be transformed, and we are on a mission to help property owners and their teams do just that. With our digital office platform, Swivel enables property owners to help tenants evaluate, lease, and use office space. To learn more, visit www.swivel.work.
