Nexudus Virtual rooms: engage with your community online thanks to the Jitsi integration
Covid-19 has transformed the way we work. Many coworkers have had to work from home, some spaces have had to undergo temporary closure and for a very few weeks it was difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel for many. But like it happens with most crises, this has been an opportunity to evaluate and rethink our behaviours, workflows the tools we use and processes we follow. And yes, many companies have realised that remote working is coming to stay and that bringing your members together in a virtual manner has a tremendously positive effect for coworking communities.
Here, at Nexudus, we aim to adapt to changes and have seen this as an opportunity to keep supporting you and your members through our platform. This why we have launched Nexudus Virtual Rooms, a secure remote conference service powered by Jitsi.
With this new integration, video conferencing is made easier than ever. Your members can jump into a meeting without having to install any software or without even having an account with Jitsi; all they need is a link! Oh, and if you were wondering, you can also enable the option of generating a unique link along with each meeting room booking confirmation for each of your rooms!
What is Jitsi?
Jitsi is a collection of free and open-source multiplatform voice, videoconferencing and instant messaging applications for the web platform, Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android.
Nexudus connects to Jitsi in two ways:
Always-on Virtual Rooms enable your customers to quickly jump into a meeting without having to install any additional software. The virtual rooms are always ready to accept participants.
You can create any number of rooms and make those available to different types of customers as well as automatically provide a private room to each of your teams and even individual customers. Click here for more information.
After setting up the integration, Nexudus creates a virtual room for each team and for every individual automatically. After that, you can create as many virtual rooms as you need!
Booking Video Conference Links
Enabling this option will generate a unique link along with each booking confirmation for each of your rooms. This link will be provided to the customer booking a room, as well as to every guest or visitor who is invited as part of that booking. Click here for more information.
There are many ways you could benefit from this integration; from morning coffee breaks in your virtual kitchen to brainstorming sessions in your virtual lounge area; the creativity and possibilities are endless!
Keeping your members engaged and providing a virtual space that supports them is a powerful way to gain and build loyalty, which is why we have listed other ways that you can assist your members, especially during unprecedented times like this. Click here to learn more.

Nexudus Explore is a new reporting tool that enables you to analyse different parts of your business by collecting data and storing it in easy to navigate reports. It’s a powerful resource that contains information on how your customers and contacts interact with your space.
Zapier is a “connector” that enables you to integrate the different apps you use. Think of it as a translator that gets apps - including Nexudus - talking to each other and working together. Its main purpose is to save people time by automating tasks. What’s more, you don’t have to be a software developer to navigate it. With a bit of practice, anyone can use it.
We integrate with SALTO because they’re one of the access control industry’s leaders. The company’s API-first approach is unique in the access control world and gives full control to its partners, enabling real-time and seamless sharing of information. Nexudus’ collaboration with SALTO’s KS system allows for seamless transfer of members’ bookings from one system to another, providing operators with autonomy over how space is utilised.
Smart integrations also allow operators to remain resilient in challenging circumstances. As well as saving money and making the customer journey more streamlined, smart software can significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for human interaction, which is particularly useful at the moment when everyone is trying to practice physical distancing.
We have just launched NexClicker, a digital tally counter that allows you to count in and out everything entering your workspace. Limit the number of people within your workspace, click them in, and click them out! Social Distancing in a coworking might mean you need to limit your capacity. NexClicker gives you an easy way to count in and out everyone who accesses your flexible workspace.
We have launched a new integration between Nexudus and Zoom. With this integration, your members can start a conversation and or meeting in the community board, request meetings and allow your members to include a Zoom meeting link to every attendee who RSPV’d or purchased a ticket for each of your remote events.
