Vrumi, the online marketplace which connects professionals needing work space with householders who have rooms, has appointed experience design consultancy Else London.
Launched in January 2015 by Roddy Campbell and William Seighart, Vrumi’s sharing economy model converts daytime room rental into affordable workspaces, which is considered one of London’s toughest challenges for the self employed sector.
Wapping-based agency Else has been appointed to drive ongoing platform development with key recommendations and improvements to support the business as it expands the offer into cities across the UK.
Ben Dunham, CTO at Vrumi, said of the appointment: “Else bring refreshing new ways to improve the experience for both guests and hosts alike. We look forward to working together to develop the next phase of the Vrumi experience.”
Dave Dunlop, creative director and partner at Else, added: “Vrumi have exciting growth plans and we are delighted to be on board for the journey. The sharing economy model requires a unique set of design challenges which we are looking forward to help solve."
