Timing is everything, it is said, and so it was either ironic or fateful that Maptician — developed as a hoteling platform to help law firms and businesses manage office space — launched in 2019, just before the pandemic and a period in which offices once bustling with people turned into downtown ghost towns.

But the company quickly adapted, says its CEO Alaa Pasha, expanding its platform to help law firms manage the new normal of hybrid offices and return to work, and it has continued to evolve to become an all-in-one platform for managing in-office needs and helping firms better plan and use their office space.

Pasha, who is our guest on this episode, says that, in his view, the company’s real focus is not space, but people, and helping law firms and businesses understand how to optimize their spaces for the people who work in them today, and how to plan their spaces for the years ahead.

Side note: The recording of this conversation came about somewhat serendipitously, when I was scheduled to meet with Pasha for a briefing during the Legalweek conference in January. When I showed up at Maptician’s booth, the company’s publicist offered to record the conversation, and this is the result. Thanks to Maptician for allowing us to share it through this podcast.
