Regus, the global workplace provider, has rolled out its app to BlackBerry users after tens of thousands of iPhone owners downloaded it.
The free app, which launched on the iPhone in September 2010, uses GPS to locate the nearest appropriate Regus business centre, showing maps and photographs, as well as a one-tap call facility to view or book workspace.
The iPhone app proved so popular that Regus released a multilingual version in eight languages in December.
Regus CEO, Mark Dixon, says: “The launch is the next step to increasing the availability of our centres to the business community. Following the success of the iPhone app, we wanted to make sure the tens of millions of BlackBerry users around the world didn’t miss out, and had the same ability to work flexibly and efficiently as their iPhone counterparts.
“More and more companies are recognising the value of outsourcing their office needs. Flexible working makes life easier both for employees and employer – and this app gives individuals the ability to locate the space they need wherever their work takes them.”
A recent survey by Regus of 17 000 international senior business executives showed 80% now embraced flexible working as part of their business operations.
Regus runs 1 100 centres in 88 countries, which range from fully serviced and virtual offices to business lounges and meeting rooms.
