...and how does it help a business succeed?
Invented by Servcorp over thirty years ago, a Virtual Office allows small and medium businesses to benefit from all the advantages of a prestigious address, landline phone numbers and team support without committing to dedicated office space.
Office expenses are minimised while the business retains the impression of a traditional high cost office and infrastructure. Professionals can work from home, or their clients, or suburban offices, and still have the reputation that only a city centre address can bring. Research shows that customers expect to see an address on marketing materials, and a home or post office address just doesn't cut it.
Many entrepreneurs and independent professionals make the mistake of relying on a mobile number for their contacts to call. Even today, most callers will not leave a message on a voicemail and won't call back if the number is busy. A Virtual Office can include a landline number, answered by a real person not a machine, who can take a message or forward the call as required.
Potential customers usually will only consider using partners based in the same city as them - putting flexible and mobile suppliers from other cities at a disadvantage. A Virtual Office can allow nimble businesses to extend their market into other cities at a minimal expense.
As the world's preeminent provider of Virtual Offices, Servcorp has invested $100m in IT and telecoms systems to ensure our clients receive the best service possible.
Servcorp's Virtual Offices take advantage of our very real network of offices around the world, so when our Virtual Office clients need space for a few hours or a day, they can use it in any of our 150 locations in 54 cities, often on a complimentary basis.
