MatchOffice was founded in 2004 by Hauke Haas and Jacob Dalhoff with the purpose of obtaining tenants for office hotels. Since then, we have extended MatchOffice and now we can be found in 19 countries.
For brokers, real estate companies and private providers, MatchOffice is a marketing platform that ensures maximum and targeted online profiling and ensures ongoing deliveries of qualified leads: more actual and potential tenants easier, faster and cheaper. In short, MatcOffice has created one single marketplace where tenants and landlords can easily and quickly come into contact with each other for the benefit of both parties.
In the spring, we decided to increase our focus on the market for meeting rooms. The demand and interest in renting meeting rooms reveal a potentially large market. The number of meeting rooms at Matchoffice has never been greater.
In March, we launched an addition to premises in the category 'shop'. It is now easy to see if the shop is suitable for being a cafe or restaurant.
In early March, we launched a new way to view our available rentals on the list view. By displaying rentals as a list, we have worked towards giving our visitors an even better overview of available business premises. Therefore, it is now possible to choose between displaying search results as either list, grid or map.
In May, we launched the Premium Partner concept, where providers can choose to display our partner badge on their ads and own website. They hereby show that they are trusted partners with MatchOffice.
To improve the quality of the leads we send to our providers, we also introduced a new point system called Quality Score. The system acts as a checklist on how to improve the quality of the ads on MatchOffice.
