The advantages of virtual office space.
Advice on what a virtual office consists of and how it can help your business.
With the cost of running a business constantly rising more and more companies are searching for ways to save some money. One obvious solution that is often overlooked is virtual office space. With most digital and modern media companies most of the work is done on laptops and PCs. The level of work completed online or using cloud computing means that a great deal of the work can be done from home by most employees. However, it seems unprofessional to have a company with no offices and clients are unlikely to trust a business with no clear location.
Virtual offices allow you an off site address and optional communication services. This means that you can have a business address whilst still being able to work from home. Another advantage is that all of your business mail can be sent to the post code associated with the office. What’s more, most virtual office space in the UK comes with far more flexible lease terms than that of traditional office properties.
If your business requires a receptionist to forward calls and deal with clients it is possible to hire a virtual assistant. If your company budget won’t stretch that far however you can buy a decent voice mail service that will forward calls and record messages.
Occasionally, your work will naturally require you to meet with potential and current clients to go over details and work. If you’d rather have a professional setting for these sort of events then you can hire out meeting and executive suites.
