Spotlight on the Virtual Office

Published on: 10/09/2018
What is a Virtual Office?

A virtual office is a professional mailing address which acts as the headquarters for communication for a company.

A virtual office can have a range of services, from simply providing an attractive address and postbox for deliveries and enquiries, to a space where a range of services are offered – such as answering, filtering and forwarding telephone enquiries and even providing a physical space for meetings or presentations.

The virtual office is a lean alternative to having a physical space – it can be the centre spot for a range of office workers who are working remotely.

It also adds a gloss of professionalism to any business, including a high-quality address, an easily contactable number and a way for any kind of enquiry to be quickly assessed and converted.   


Why have a Virtual Office?

Virtual offices are perfect for both start-ups, fast growing businesses and established companies with staff who work remotely.

They allow for a business to be flexible, especially when the business is just starting or is in a state of change or very fast growth.

This allows for workers to work remotely anywhere, allows for flexible working hours, and decreases overhead costs significantly.


The advantages of having a Virtual Office?

Your office mailing address is on most of your correspondence, your website and in online listings, including on search engines. Having the high-quality front of a professional address will positively impact on the impression of your brand.   

If you use a virtual office in place of a physical space, you can employ across the country, or even globally, and hire from a high-quality talent pool. Employees who work remotely also save significant amounts of time and money on not having commutes. They can also benefit from flexible working hours. 

Office rental costs, utility bills and general upkeep can have a huge impact on the running cost of a business. Not having these at the start of the life of a business can create a huge boost for the initial growth of a company. This is why virtual offices are ideal for start-ups who need to make large savings to grow from point 0 to point 1.
