Because one size does not fit all!
There's a new driver pushing commercial landlords to up the amenity ante -- a changing workplace with an influx of millennials and a different set of expectations.
Amenities that were great to have five to ten years ago -- like setbacks that became terraces, rooftop areas as common amenities, onsite fitness centers, wifi lounges, and so on -- are now pre-requisites.
When thinking about offering these amenities, owners and management companies have typically only had two options. They could either staff a full-service center at a subsidized rate, or they could offer an unstaffed center for free to all tenants and add the operational cost into CAM expenses.
LifeStart Flex provides a third option for those owners who want to maintain a free center for their tenants or who may not have the tenant population available to sustain a full-service center. LifeStart Flex starts with a managed but unstaffed solution and includes a wide variety of service elements that can be added based on tenant demand.
Managed centers provide many benefits to owners and management groups, including:
- Online enrollment, taking the burden off your property management team
- Billing and collections
- Liability waiver compliance
- Insurance for your center, providing an extra layer of protection
- Equipment maintenance
- Utilization and equipment usage tracking
- Equipment orientations
Additional Flex services that can be added include:
- Towel and laundry service
- Group exercise classes
- Personal training, either one-on-one or in small groups
- Nutritional services
- Personal locker service
- Flexible staffing
LifeStart Flex allows owners to offer the center for free and to have additional services available, thus increasing the value of their onsite center. The Flex offering also works for those centers that may be too small to support a full-service model, but can be implemented at the same overall cost of operating an unstaffed center.
Let LifeStart provide a free evaluation of your center operation to show how Flex can be implemented at your center!
