Introduction 🔖

The modern workplace has evolved in recent years, with more companies adopting a hybrid approach to work. With employees working both in-office and remotely, companies are looking for custom solutions to effectively manage office resources and improve collaboration between their employees.

This is where InOffice comes in, a SaaS-based Slack app integration built by AntStack. InOffice is designed to help hybrid companies manage seats and other planned amenities. In this blog post, we’ll share our journey of creating InOffice and how it has helped AntStack and dozens of other companies save costs by going Serverless.

The Problem 😫

As a fast-growing Serverless company, AntStack experienced the challenges of managing a hybrid workspace first-hand. We were using an expensive app that provided only one simple feature: allowing users to join in through a Slack message. Despite its hefty price tag, the app lacked the flexibility and customization we desired.

Given our expertise in helping companies save costs by moving to Serverless, we decided to explore a more cost-effective and efficient solution for our office needs.

The Solution: Building InOffice with Serverless 💡

The idea for InOffice was born out of necessity, and our extensive experience in Serverless technology made it the perfect choice for developing the app. By leveraging Serverless architecture, we were able to build a highly scalable, secure, and cost-effective application with minimal effort and time.

InOffice simplifies seat management and resource allocation in hybrid workplaces. Users can quickly mark their attendance for the next day, add guests, or even plan their attendance for a week in advance. With easy integration into Slack and future plans for Microsoft Teams, InOffice is the ultimate solution for modern hybrid workspaces.

The Results: Serverless Success 🤯

The results of our decision to build InOffice using Serverless were nothing short of astonishing. The app’s cost of operation was reduced to 1/10th of the price we were paying for the previous solution. This incredible cost reduction, coupled with increased scalability and security, has demonstrated the power of Serverless technology in developing modern applications.

Conclusion: Embracing Serverless with AntStack 🚀

InOffice stands as a shining example of what Serverless technology can do, revolutionizing the way we create and maintain applications.
