Share insights, effort and costs with like-minded venues

Peppered stopped being just one collective a long time ago. Clients know how to use different criteria to find each other and start collaborating because they share a certain profile, geographic location or functional accents.

“These mini-collectives formed organically, really”, says Coen van der Poll, who works on the Platform’s strategic application for clients. “New ideas sometimes seem to sprout up in several places at once as if by accident, it was a small step to bundle these ideas. We increasingly see that clients know how to find each other directly for joint initiatives.”

Binding agent for mini-collectives

Type of organisation, country, functionality

Our developments can be specific to a country, an area or a city. Sometimes we specifically work with organisations that are clustered around a technical issue (users of a certain planning package, for instance). The different types of organisations we serve are naturally a popular binding agent too. “Whether the concert hall is located in Amsterdam or Ghent, the issues are the same for the most part”, says Coen. As always, freedom is paramount. You only join if you think it will benefit your organisation and/or if you think you can bring something to the table. “It goes without saying that we also still work for individual organisations, for their unique wishes and needs. We want to apply collectiveness only where it is regarded as beneficial and profitable by all parties involved.”
