Why Are Businesses Using Virtual Office Spaces?
The current state of today’s market is leaving businesses questioning the cost of renting an office space and whether it’s even worth the investment. With flexible office solutions such as virtual offices becoming a viable alternative to traditional offices, should businesses be looking towards the competitive advantages of having an office without occupying physical space? There is great value in having a virtual office instead of renting a traditional office space.
An authentic perception of credibility
Having a physical address within a recognisable location as well as a unique prefix phone number instantly builds credibility. Many virtual office clients are typically growing small businesses, workers operating remotely or expanding businesses transitioning into another office space. Many of these businesses have just begun or are a few years into their entrepreneurial journey. The association of having a business located within a highly desirable area validates any business’s legitimacy regardless of size or scope. It ultimately gives an impression of a highly successful business able to afford the luxury of situating their business within a professional area resulting in client’s trust and furthering the possibility of an ongoing business relationship.
Escape the high costs of renting traditional office space
Office rent, utilities, maintenance, fit outs, moving fees and administration costs, all start to add up in a short amount of time and without any notice. A basic office fit out for a small business can cost anywhere up to $50,000 . Virtual offices can be as low as $75 per month . The costs involved for finding suitable office space ultimately steal funds from other areas of the business. This can cause a serious roadblock in any business’s path to success. Virtual office users eliminate most, if not all overhead costs when they sign up for a virtual office.
Professional services that leave a lasting impression
Often undervalued is the importance of having a professional Receptionist. They answer calls in your company name, greet guests and also assist with any organisational requirements. Having a professionally trained Receptionist greet guests in an exceptional manner give an unforgettable first impression. It only takes 30 milliseconds for someone to instantly create a first impression and in most professional circumstances, the first impression is made by the Receptionist. Virtual office users take full advantage of having a professional Receptionist without adding another person’s salary to an already tight budget while still maintaining a high level of professionalism and courtesy.
Increase productivity and eliminate the commute
The flexibility of working regardless of location is one of biggest draws for a virtual office client. A study conducted by uSamp determined that 67% of professional workers felt that when given the option to work remotely their overall productivity increased. Given that favourability to working remotely, it is no surprise that many virtual office clients tend to work from unconventional locations. As such, virtual office users eliminate the entire commute, saving the business time and money. With significant savings on the above-mentioned factors, those resources can be reallocated into other areas that demand attention.
