Serviced office business Regus are the latest business to launch a mobile app for the iPhone. The app is aimed at the 500,000 Regus users worldwide and allows them – and anyone who downloads the free app – to find office space and conference rooms near them from a selection of 1100 locations in 85 countries. There’s also a very neat augmented reality addition to the app which we think maybe a first for the iPhone.
Designed and built by London based Wavana Interactive, the application enables customers to search Regus’ global network to locate centres to suit their business needs.
The app features;
Search – Users can easily locate their nearest Regus centre on the go using GPS (including filtering by facilities), locate it on a map and get turn by turn directions. The app also includes an very nice augmented reality feature which overlays locations and distances of Regus offices over a real-time view from the camera.
View – Full description of each centre, complete with facilities and photos.
Enquire – A range of enquiry options include one tap calling, requesting a call back or scheduling a centre viewing
Book – With a few simple taps users can make a booking for a meeting room or day office through the app
