Matchmaking

By Becca Chiaravalle

Working in a big city has numerous benefits, and if you’re using SpaceTogether, one of the best benefits is the range of choices you have as a space renter. We’ve seen big cities across the United States flourish with open spaces from our very own space providers.

While that’s excellent news, it does come with one, tiny difficulty: narrowing down those choices. There does come a point when there are simply too many options, and the overwhelming choice-making begins to feel impossible. Our SpaceTogether users checked-in with our team to let us know about this hiccup, and we listened.

This is how our matchmaking algorithm came to be. If you’re unfamiliar with matchmaking on the SpaceTogether platform, let me give you a brief rundown.

What is matchmaking?

The matchmaking algorithm on our platform is how we accurately connect renters to providers based on the specific needs of the renter, such as budget, duration of use, location, etc, in a user-friendly way.

Who is it for?

This software was created for both renters and providers. As I mentioned above, our renters were having to search many spaces and narrow down their choices, which can be overwhelming. By eliminating the options that wouldn’t be a good fit and showcasing the best options for the renter, we save the renter time. That’s not all. By encouraging the best fit immediately, space providers no longer have to worry about communication with renters who may have overlooked information that may have been overlooked.

How does it work?

First we assess the availability, location, and functionality of the spaces on the platform; next, we navigate the specific time slots and budget of the space; finally, we list the needs of the renters through amenities, allowing renters to dictate their budget, location, and timeframe. This process may sound like a lot is happening (and it is) but our software is fast and efficient, showing renters their best matched spaces immediately.

Why is this important?

Matchmaking allows us to present the provider’s information clearly and efficiently, so renters can quickly know what is going to suit them, and everyone can start sharing space as soon as possible. After all, isn’t that why we’re all here?

As always, we’re here to answer any questions you may have about space sharing or SpaceTogether. Want to get in touch with us fast? Find us on social media (linked at the bottom of this page) and send us a DM. We love talking to our users and want to see you grow your business by sharing space.
