A Hampshire & IOW Smarter Working Centre (SWC) offers flexible no commitment, office, training and meeting room space for all types and sizes of organisations. An SWC is a stepping stone to having your own (local) office, a work hub to be used whenever you need it. FREE membership also provides the opportunity to book and use SWC internet connected office space in Hampshire or meeting or training rooms at any of the 11 centres in the Hampshire & IOW SWC network.
The SWC network is independently operated and has been setup by the 'not-for-profit' ehampshire Partnership with funding from Hampshire County Council as part of the authority's £425k 'Recession-Response' investment.
There are just three simple steps to follow:
- Register (FREE membership) and select the 'pay as you go' option (or one of the discounted prepay tariffs available to regular users)
- Decide how long you want to book for - this can be as little as one hour or as long as one year using the website 'availability checker'. Alternatively you can phone or drop into your nearest SWC
- When you confirm your booking, you can choose to pay on line or on arrival (and you can order such as a data projector or buffet for a workshop).
How Much will SWC work-space cost?
Using your own lap-top? You can book an internet ready desk for the day and it will cost you just £1.50 per hour (£12). A PC equipped work-space will cost you £20 (£2.50 per hour).
At those kind of prices*, when will YOU be checking-in to your nearest SWC?
* According to Actium Consult - strategic property consultants - town centre workspace in Hampshire costs in TOTAL between £5,000 and £6,000 per annum.
