Hospitality Infused Tech – Eclat APP

A digital representation of the eclat commitment to technology, design and hospitality.

As the way we work, live and play changes with the world around us, new norms demand a bold approach to the future of office spaces. Eclat strives to onboard all supportive elements typically surrounding the traditional office into a seamless operation; an end to end experience unified by brand and design led discipline across all touchpoints; digital, hospitality, event, wellness, accommodation and facilities management.

The Eclat APP represents a truly integrated digital experience. Its UI/UX aligned with the greater family of Eclat brands, driving the objectives of the business, supporting day to day operations and enabling their vision of a radically different approach to coworking spaces. Design and hospitality is at the core of this development showcasing the unique Eclat offering and highlighting an exciting future of multifaceted lifestyle oriented destinations that offer a more beneficial and rewarding experience for the end user.

The Eclat App is not just a functional requirement for the business, it is a statement about the curated environment with every detail being considered. The technology had to be developed in a scalable way to incorporate future locations and the idiosyncrasies that will exist for each new site. There were many “off the shelf” options to achieve the functional objective, however Eclat never waivered on their commitment to delivering an experience that is unique innovative and supportive of their long term ambitions.

The visual design of the application evokes a similar feeling users experience when walking into the physical space. Created in parallel with the interior of Eclat Hawthorn East, users get a sense of the environment by opening the app observing elements of its colour palette, arches and style guides reflected in the app; so there is a real feeling of connection to the physical space.

The Eclat application serves as a digital concierge innovatively integrating hospitality derived functionality seamlessly into the workspace ecosystem; a digital food and beverage ordering system akin to table ordering enables room service to meeting rooms, offices, hotel suites and tables alike. Yet fully integrated into their CMS allowing members and customers to add purchases to their existing Eclat account, or employers to provide their staff with benefits in the form of food and beverage credits; reflected within their business expense ledgers.

Its functionality includes a real time facility booking engine, for meeting rooms, tables, workspaces and event venues. Full end to end account management, such as invoicing, user profile and help desk support. Communication with other Eclat members, and a ticket purchasing engine for functions and internal programs. Key fobs for doors and access cards for print job release is also a thing of the past, both are achieved with the Eclat App making it the quintessential digital passport for members within Eclat spaces.

“Differentiation in the market hasn’t been achieved with elevated interior design, bespoke furniture and integrated hospitality alone. The stories we tell, the lives we live and the support we offer each other defines the Eclat brand. Our digital platforms need to promote this connectivity and bring us together” – Jesse Hayes

An exciting development currently on the cusp of being launched is its integration with Noted. Enabling a direct connection between Eclat CMS, web and its social media platforms with the editorial element of the business. Allowing each Eclat location, or a geotargeted group of locations within a city to organically evolve its own individual narrative and community voice with articles and media being truly cross platform.

The digital roadmap for Eclat is exciting to say the least. This attention to detail and their need for bespoke touchpoints extends far beyond the app to the broader web platform and backend CMS platform, both currently in development. Its objective is to offer members a completely unique experience and enable industry leading innovations and profound interactive experiences between users and future physical Eclat amenities. Technology working in harmony with interior design to achieve a unified outcome to fulfil the needs of the new age workforce.

The Eclat app manages every aspect of a members day to day experience. It also ensures that all on site technology is discreet, intuitive, far more integrated and less impactful to interior design outcomes.”

The Eclat APP is available to members on both iOS and Android. With a scalable design, observing the need to support progressive updates, the addition of new features and API’s, to expand upon existing functionality as Eclat launches new locations and adds new branded amenities, such as accommodation and wellness centres. The Eclat app developed in partnership with Exo Digital, celebrated its winning of a Good Design Award and is currently shortlisted in several international design competitions championing Australian innovation.
