Yardi’s tools are made to help property managers as well as landlords to manage their properties’ operations and financials. WeWork’s main business is leasing desks and office space. But, WeWork have tried expanding its reach in recent years however not as far as bizarre choices made by the founder of WeWork and the previous CEO Adam Neumann. He was in charge of expanding WeWork to become an elementary school as well as residential co-living.
Neumann has presented WeWork to investors as a company that was based on technology and had several acquisitions, including conference-room booking software as well as an online marketing company as well as a product that made use of smartphones to monitor how employees move within the office. After the company’s failure to attempt to hold an initial public offering during the calendar year of 2019. Certain business units were sold off to cut expenses.
WeWork had a successful second public offering. In its final year under the current CEO Sandeep Mathrani WeWork revealed to its investors it was working on three parts in its commercial model including leasing offices, providing an on-demand service such as leasing desks for a day and then selling a brand-new software product known as WeWork Workplace.
