Advantages of Investing in a Virtual Office

In modern day business it is becoming more and more popular for companies to invest in a virtual office. Toying with the idea of whether to get the next step for your business and open a virtual office? We’ve summed up a list of advantages below to make the decision easier for you.

Increase Corporate Credibility with a Business Address

Your brand identity and appearance as a company play a vital role in attracting new business and boosting your revenue. In some cases, businesses may not choose to work with you if your company address is registered to your family home and not a physical office location.

If you cannot currently afford to rent office space within a city centre that thrives with business opportunities within your industry, investing in a virtual office may be an excellent decision to boost your corporate credibility.

Cost-Effective (fewer overheads and reduced operating costs)

If you’re a small business or just starting out, you’re likely to be trying extremely hard to keep your overheads low and your business afloat. By not having to pay monthly for office space, you will eliminate the need for office equipment and consequently reduce your monthly outgoings and save a lot of money.

Work from Anywhere

Acquiring a virtual office is a perfect solution if you wish to work remotely, whether that be at home, in a café, or whilst commuting. All you need is a laptop and internet to gain the freedom and flexibility of working anywhere you wish.

This also eliminates the need for long commute times since you will not have a physical office location. By removing your commute time to work you will gain additional time to use on working that you once spent sat in traffic or travelling on public transport.

Post-Handling Services

Investing in a virtual office means that your company can take advantage of post-handling services within the building of your virtual address. This means that your company will obtain a designated post box.

In most cases you will be required to visit the building to pick up your post, however some virtual office space providers will send you your mail for a fixed fee per item.

Small Set-Up Times

Another advantage of virtual offices is the little to no set-up time required. Businesses can often expect their call handling service, mail forwarding and business address to be up and running within 24 hours of purchasing.

This means that within 24 hours your business can be perceived as being bigger than it is by any of your future and existing clients.

Increased Productivity

By allowing your team to work remotely, you reduce the need for internal meetings and interpersonal conversations. Ultimately, productivity will increase as employees have the freedom to work in a comfortable environment of their choice.

From increasing your company’s credibility, to cutting your monthly costs and overheads, investing in a virtual office space comes with a wealth of benefits.
