The rise of virtual offices
Virtual offices are on the rise! The idea that the office is where our professional lives take place is becoming less universal and less important.
In the modern-day, we can be productive almost anywhere! This is thanks to smarter mobile devices, faster network access and a growing number of online tools. Surveys show that over 60% of large companies are now letting their employees work from home, due to cheaper overheads and more productive employees.
Technology has made it much easier for colleagues and managers to stay connected. The virtual office gets rid of unnecessary stress and helps to gain back hours in the day. Whatever your business type, a virtual office may be for you.
With a virtual office, you can bridge the gap between a remote worker and a company address used to meet with clients. With us, your office will be fully customisable, ensuring you only pay for what you need.
The benefits of a Virtual Office.
- No commute time.
This makes virtual offices more environmentally friendly than traditional office space. Cutting out the commute decreases carbon dioxide emissions, allowing you to reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment. No commute time also increases employee productivity and encourages employees to be more focused.
You can work from anywhere and at any time! A virtual office gives you the flexibility to work from anywhere – from home, from a beach, from the park, from anywhere you want. If all your business needs is an internet connection then a virtual office is the ideal solution for you.
- Saving money on overheads.
There’s no office rent, no utility payments, no hardware and none of the associated costs that come with having a brick-and-mortar space. All that savings can not only be passed along to clients, but it also affects your profit margin, allowing you to invest more in your people.
- Enhance your corporate image.
Having a prestigious business address with a virtual office ensures your brand maintains a credible, professional, and legitimate business image. Using a physical business address and office phone number on your business cards, website, and email increases trust in prospects and clients.
Your Virtual Office Facilities
A virtual office offers many facilities, enabling your business to appear as professional as those who have a physical space. This includes, but is not limited to, a mailing address, telephone answering, parcel storage and reception courtesies.
Our virtual offices use specialist computer software to tell the difference between calls and what they represent. This enables us to provide you a streamlined and professional service, virtual office receptionists are also there to physically handle your mail and incoming deliveries.
Another facility that is offered with our virtual offices is the handling of the mail you receive at the virtual office address. Our handlers work in these office spaces and at your request can open your mail, scan the contents and send it to you via a cloud-based storage system. This enables you to receive your mail immediately.
Letters, once opened, are then shredded for privacy purposes unless you state otherwise.
Save On Costs
With a virtual office, you no longer need to worry about spending time completing mundane tasks such as general maintenance and cleaning duties. This allows you to save time and money, so you can focus solely on your business.
With a virtual office, you pay for a prestigious business address without paying large amounts of rent that come with it. This enables you to keep business expenses low as you reduce costs of commuting and transportation, office equipment, office maintenance and utilities and so on. Other expenses such as liability insurance are also reduced, as they are not required unless you have a physical office space.
Many operators provide casual workspaces which allow you to drop in and work in an office environment on a pay-as-you-go basis. This can be beneficial if you need to rid yourself of distractions.
