In the next few months, AWFIS is planning to add four more centres in Hyderabad and have a seating capacity of 1,500-1,800 by mid-2017. The charges for flexi work stations start at Rs 350 per day, fixed seats at Rs 750 per day, private cabins starting at Rs 13,000 per month and meeting rooms at Rs 600 per hour.
“With the launch of the new Pro-working Centre at TAJ Deccan, AWFIS will set a new benchmark of converting underutilized spaces in premium properties for the benefit of the startup community looking for affordable yet premium addresses for setting up office,” said Sumit Lakhani, Marketing Head, AWFIS Space Solutions.
