Online bookings for community spaces are our thing

Why SpacetoCo is the #1 choice for
Community Spaces

We LOVE matchmaking communities and spaces.

We partner with community spaces to help them create the most engaging and efficient facilities bookings process possible.

We make it possible for you to automate bookings, bonds and payment processes without losing control of who uses your spaces.

We make bookings fun and easy, helping your team spend their time on activities that grow your revenue and impact in your community.

A Community Spaces Love Story

We LOVE matchmaking communities to your local spaces. We believe everyone should have access to find and book affordable local spaces. We work with you to transform your bookings journey, streamline your processes and make reporting a walk in the park.

Increase bookings, revenue and usage of your community facilities, whilst blitzing repetitive admin and ditching paper based processes. We work for all types of spaces. From community centres and recreation centres to sports clubs, arts venues, theatres and churches.

SpacetoCo is an award winning organisation, and was the Peoples Choice at the 2021 INCITE Awards!

Recognised for our innovative and groundbreaking web platform that connects community members
with local community and government-owned spaces.

Turn highly manual and repetitive processes into easy automated flows.

Bookings administrators are swamped by the pain of back & forth pricing & availability enquiries, taking and paying back bonds, creating and chasing invoices...

With SpacetoCo your team need never invoice, chase payment or refund bonds ever again!

Learn more about how easy it can be to use automation to reduce the load on your team - without losing control.

Create a delightful online bookings journey with no tech skills required!

Having your customers fill out paper forms, call up to get key info or get lost in a never ending email trail makes it hard for people to book and use your spaces.

We enable you to have a seamless and delightful online bookings process for casual and regular hirers without any complex IT project or development costs.

Think your spaces, bookings or customers are too complicated or require too much 'hands on' effort to ever move to an online bookings solution?

Our platform has been designed specifically for community spaces, so it can handle all the quirks and intricacies of your bookings set up - from managing school holidays, to legacy fees and charges.

Increase revenue and utilisation of your facilities

Utilisation varies across the week at community spaces, with some times fully booked out across all spaces, and then long periods of empty rooms! By making facilities and availability more visible and bookable, customers can self serve and supply and demand finds a more natural balance. Bookings can increase and the load is spread across the week to make this growth sustainable.

Community spaces that use SpacetoCo see an average revenue increase of 20-40%.

Be part of a growing bookable ecosystem of community spaces

People want the convenience of being able to see all their options in one place. Think about the last time you booked a holiday home - platforms like AirBnB and Book-a-Bach aggregrate all the options and make it so easy to find what you need.

Our vision is a thriving marketplace for people and groups to find affordable community spaces. Everyday new users discover our platform and make bookings. Will you make it easy for them to find your space? Just like a rising tide lifts all ships, the more spaces we have, the better all spaces do. That’s because when you make it easy, people do more together locally.

Read our thinking on how being part of a marketplace is the future for community space sharing.

Enable your team to work productively, remotely and be ready for lockdowns or other civil emergencies

Lockdowns are a pain in the A**E. They create tons of manual effort to cancel bookings, create credit notes and refunds, and often key data and systems are not accessible outside of the centre. All this extra effort on top of revenue loss is unsustainable.

We worked with our community spaces to enable lockdowns to be managed quickly and easily. Bulk cancel bookings, issue announcements and get customers to agree to a Covid plan as part of their booking. You can also easily track lost revenue for reporting and government funding.

Book a demo to see how we enable your team to handle lockdowns and work remotely.

Get all your booking data at the click of a button, make reporting a piece of cake and report your impact to boards and funding providers.

Does doing the monthly reporting and stats across your bookings drain hours of your time? Are you sick of trying to collect data from multiple sources like your calendar, email or bookings docs?

SpacetoCo makes it easy to get realtime data about what's going on across your spaces at the click of a button. Use this data to easily measure and predict your revenue, get the stats for the monthly board report or track growth in new groups using your spaces.

It will also help unlock qualitative and quantitative data to communicate how your facilities impact community wellbeing. This data can help you build credible stories for grant applications and increase your chance of success.

Let us show you how this data can help improve your funding applications and show you some sample reports by booking a demo today.

Be part of a bigger community that’s learning and growing together

When you partner with SpacetoCo, it’s like having an additional team member…not only because we do all the heavy lifting to free up your team from bookings processes, but also because we provide expert advice and coaching to help you grow your bookings. We work with 100’s of community spaces and we share this knowledge with you through our ongoing partnership, dedicated communications and exclusive learning opportunities.

Growth & Activation

Before we worked with SpacetoCo, we did have a room booking system that was working - but it was so dependent on the knowledge and skills of one person to know how to manage the bookings and the invoicing. Now we have a system that means we can all jump in and see what’s what, which means it can all run quite smoothly when we take leave. This is why it’s worth paying for the system - as it means we have more automation and an established process that means we can grow without increasing the dependency on our team. We would recommend SpacetoCo to other community spaces.

Our Purpose

Why we do what we do

Sustainability

We believe that there are plenty of spaces and it’s not always necessary to build more. By utilising existing assets more efficiently and by making it easier to book spaces online, we all play a part in a more sustainable future.

Local Economies

We believe in the importance of driving growth to local area economies. By providing a means for people to access local spaces, we hope to stimulate a buzz of activity within towns, precincts & localities . We believe that when local economies thrive, communities come to life.

Community Connection

We believe space activation plays an important role in community development and building connectedness between people.It is through this that we work towards building a supportive, inclusive and diverse society.
