About Us We build amazing software for the new way we work

We created Deskdragon in 2020, with the unique challenges of COVID-19 in mind. We're passionate about helping companies return to work safely.

The way we work has changed, and for many, this change will be permanent. Offices can be smaller and more cost-effective, and teams can be given the freedom to work from home when they need to.

An office still remains a valuable resource. Creative work, brainstorming, and collaboration all benefit from seeing each other in-person some of the time. It has been demonstrated that productivity increases when you can choose when to work from home.

Deskdragon was designed with this in mind. We give teams the freedom to decide when and where they want to work, while businesses benefit from the cost savings of smaller offices.

Trusted by leading companies

We're experts in workspace management software, and our products are trusted by hundreds of companies in more than 50 countries worldwide. Our clients include the UN, Siemens, Deutsche Bahn, Decathlon, Travelex, and Toyota.
