7 April 2021 | Greenhouse Mechelen

Bringing order and structure into the thousands of documents circulating in your company, that sounds like quite a challenge, right? Well, not for DWS group: a company that specialises in ‘Document Management Systems’.

We would like to introduce you to Glenn De Wit, the driving force behind DWS, and one of our most loyal Greenhouse members: Glenn has been working in our co-working space in Mechelen since 2016.

Why does he still choose Greenhouse after all these years? He will tell you that himself!


Hi Glenn! Tell us a bit more about yourself and DWS group.

Hello, I am the founder of DWS group. Our core business? We support companies in bringing order and structure into their documents, which may or may not be digitised.

Today, we are situated somewhere between business & IT: we are the bridge between the needs of the business on the one hand, and the eventual IT solution on the other.

I almost always work with partners and external developers which allows me to scale up or down according to the project. I am responsible for managing these various external forces.

How did you end up at Greenhouse?

A colleague who already knew Greenhouse told me a lot of good things about it. His experiences encouraged me to have a look.

The first time I visited the co-working space in Mechelen, I felt it immediately: this is an extension of home. The decision was made quickly, and 5 years later I’m still happy about my choice. I keep coming here with a great pleasure, and I can’t think of any reason why I would look for another workplace…


Why are you still happy about your choice?

Greenhouse is a wonderful and cosy place to be. Everything you need to focus and relax is right here: a clean desk, phone booths, meeting rooms, but also the presence of other co-workers who, after a while, I consider to be colleagues.

On top, I would like to give Mana extra compliments: she gives all co-workers a warm welcome in the morning!

Is there anything we can improve?

That’s a difficult question… I currently don’t miss anything at Greenhouse and I can’ t think of anything. It’s simple, I don’t need much: a laptop, fast internet, electricity and coffee. By the way, I really like the coffee at Greenhouse!


How do you experience co-working?

Co-working has nothing but advantages for me, and that is why it is such a success formula for DWS. I am easily distracted at home, so I like to be able to break out to a place that serves to focus on the job. This way of working provides the necessary flexibility and freedom.

There are few obligations and that feels so good!

Advantages of co-working

Would you recommend Greenhouse to professionals who are looking for a co-working space?

Of course, I have already recommended Greenhouse to others several times. Greenhouse is always top of mind for me, because I have been a client for years and am very satisfied. I can’t think of a negative word about Greenhouse.

Thank you for the nice talk, Glenn!
