I have used multiple shared office spaces and I find that all others fall flat when compared to Novel. We have had many office spaces as a company and I feel Novel offers everything we need.
Why do we office hear and what factored into our decision.
Location, Location, Location: Novel has offices in Denver and Boulder and with a distributed team, we get together as needed in both locations. Its easy to drop in and work. The office is close to transportation hubs, light-rail, bike paths, etc. Downtown Denver, what could be better? From walking distances to most everything, restaurants, bars, etc. We have a small office on the 8th floor and as we grow, we can expand as needed. With Novel adding more locations nationwide, this makes it easier for myself to look at other locations as we expand.
Atmosphere: As a small company, Novel meets all our business needs. If we need a conference room, we get one, if we need a phone room, there are many to drop into and choose from. Coffee, Tea, Wifi, and printing, what more is needed? Oh yeah, beer on-tap. All works great with no issues. The services provided here are exactly what we need as a company.
Staffing: What makes a company truly great? It’s the people! The Denver Team, Hayley Rogers, and Ana Deiter were factored into my decision to sign a two-year lease. Hayley did an excellent job of walking me through the process and getting us onboarded. Ana has done an excellent job and any issues or concerns that we have had has been addressed quickly. The entire team does an excellent job of communicating and follow up. As Novel has grown the additional staff additions have been a pleasure to work with daily. I don’t see the Novel team as separate from my team and I treat them as an extension of us.
Networking: Have you heard the saying, “You don’t know what you don’t know?”. The ability to share knowledge, network with other clients and share knowledge is invaluable. Lunch and learns of all types of topics, it’s easy to drop in learn something new and grab a bite. The networking and meeting other clients of Novel is like frosting on the cake.
Sharing: Sharing desks, sharing space, sharing knowledge, efficiently using what you need when you need is a breath of fresh air. If you sign up as a Novel client, you will not be disappointed.
