Is it time your business ‘moved in’ to a virtual office? Let us explain what you can expect from a remote business address and some of the perks involved.
What is a virtual office?
A virtual office gives businesses a physical address and a host of services without the usual expenses associated with a bricks and mortar workspace. A front of house reception team will usually handle any mail and calls, forward important messages and may even organise your meetings.
What are the benefits of using a virtual office?
By using a business postal address, a company can appear more established to clients. Assigning call answering to a reception team can free up time for employees and allow them to focus on more specialised work.
Virtual offices are also subject to flexible contracts, meaning a business owner can test how well their company performs in a given location with relatively short notice.
Are virtual offices expensive?
A virtual office is the most cost effective way of securing a prestigious city address with prices starting at just £35 per month. Choose from a simple business address to display on your business cards and website, or add on services such as call answering.
Can I hold meetings at a virtual office?
If you need a space to meet clients, virtual office companies are able to provide meeting rooms or day offices. At BE Offices we offer both, our flexible rooms come complete with free-flow hot drinks and chilled water and can be fully catered on request. The latest audio-visual equipment means you can host video conference calls in the comfort of a professional atmosphere.
What other virtual services could benefit my business?
Your business could also benefit from call forwarding services with calls answered professionally in your company name and forwarded to your landline or mobile. Mail received at your virtual address can also be forwarded or you are welcome to collect it in person. Additionally, for a small additional fee, you can use your virtual address as a registered address for your business.
