Making work happen anywhere
Convene is a leading communal workplace company that provides flexible, tech-enabled meeting and office solutions.
Back in 2014, NY-based startup Convene realized that traditional offices and meeting spaces were no longer able to meet the evolving needs of an increasingly flexible workforce. Confident that there was more room for innovation in commercial real estate, Convene set out to provide businesses of all shapes and sizes with the kind of on-demand, high-end amenities previously only enjoyed by unicorn tech startups.
After raising a $20M Series B led by Brookfield Property Partners — one of the world's largest investors in real estate — the company was looking for an engineering partner to turn its idea into reality.
Backed by a decade’s worth of proptech expertise, iTechArt was best positioned to lead this ambitious project. Bringing together a range of cross-functional talent from our software, DevOps, and QA units, we built the company's online booking solution from the ground up, integrating it with Stripe for more streamlined payment management.
Next, the team implemented Salesforce CRM to automate booking, tax calculation, and property tracking — all of which dramatically increased Convene’s efficiency in a very short timeframe.
In order to support the client’s continued growth, we also developed native iOS and Android apps to help landlords, tenants, and visitors manage all property-related activities easily in one place. As our final step, we fine-tuned the Cafe application, enabling Convene users to seamlessly handle onsite culinary services.
With its powerful new tools, Convene established itself as the go-to place to work, meet, and host events for the likes of Amazon, Deloitte, and Netflix.
Better yet, during our work together, the company raised $250M+ in funding to continue driving real change in the commercial real estate sector — through pioneering workplace solutions currently accessible to millions of users in 23 locations across the globe.
