mr.Watson is a time saver

Because running doesn’t really help, and you have a lot to do.

Empower your tenants to help themselves and each other

Peer-to-peer support

Tenants help each other, saving you precious time

Collective learning

A public answered question helps, on average 30 people instead of just 1

Increased trust

People trust advice from peers more than those from organisations

The second you stop being the postman, hours are won.

From being the postman to a situation where tenants can directly communicate with single tenants or the whole group. This will save you a lot of time in event communications and newsletter sending.

Example: Let’s do an event

Before: E-mail from a tenant to you or your community management ‘Is there a room available?’. E-mail back and forth about the availability. E-mail from the tenant ‘Can you help me promote the event among other tenants’. E-mail back and forth about event information and promotion timing. Setting up e-mail or newsletter to all tenants.

You get multiple e-mails, a lot of time invested

mr.Watson: Tenant goes to mr.Watson, books a suiting room, adds a new event on mr.Watson. mr.Watson helps promoting the event and managing attendance. Tenant invites a few extra relevant neighbours in a direct message via mr.Watson.

You sit back and enjoy the dynamics

 

Direct feedback and insights

With mr.Watson you get a constant insights in the atmosphere, ideas and problems that your tenants have. The coffee machine conversations about the space you normally miss, now extends to online. Enabling you to respond and develop based on the needs of your customers.

Involve the community in development

Actively looking for input for new space development, are you in doubt if a new service or purchase is really needed, ask the community for input! Having an influence on your environment is a big satisfaction and sense of community booster. Just dare to ask!

mr.Watson structures, interacts and unburden us of our holy task of building out a vibrant community.

Save money, to spend it somewhere else

You probably have a list of things that you would like to do in and around your space.
Create the financial space you need to keep on developing.

 

Keeping vs Attracting

Keeping a customer is 6x cheaper compared to attracting and onboarding new ones. Investing in the loyalty and satisfaction of your customers can save you a great amount of money. Using mr.Watson can help you keeping your customers by helping them be more successful, optimising the support and connecting them to the facilities and people around them. 

“A 2% increase in customer retention has the same effect as decreasing costs by 10%

Marketing done for you

Retaining a customer is step one, but a tenant that is truly connected to it’s surroundings doesn’t just stay, they advocate and promote you product, creating word-of-mouth marketing. 74% identify word of mouth as a key influencer, 88% trust other consumers just as they trust close friends and family. In this light, it is easy to see the value of having tenants promoting your office space as ambassadeurs. Not only saving on your marketing budget but creating value!

Save big on development

Developing an application has to cost factors: (1) initial investment in the first version and (2) the continuous cost of maintaining and developing based on user research and feedback. A conservative average cost of an app is somewhere between €50.000 and €75.000. The industry average on maintaining an app is a yearly around 20% of the initial investment, so at least €800,- a month (!).

Based on these numbers, mr.Watson can save you the initial investment (+/- €60.000) and at least 94% in monthly development and maintenance. 

The costs for retaining a customer are 6x to 7x lower than attracting new ones.

 

Deloitte DigitalSeptember 2015

Maintaining an app is not an insignificant task. Despite what many think, it is a major investment of time, money and vision. You should expect to involve a team of six to ten people for about six months or more. Moreover, a high-quality, enterprise-class app will involve not tens, but hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The rewards of pursuing excellence in word-of-mouth marketing are huge, and it can deliver a sustainable and significant competitive edge few other marketing approaches can match.
