One of the revolutionary effects of the Internet is that it has allowed entrepreneurs to do business without a physical office. Nowadays, you can start and run a business simply by going online, and your office becomes wherever you are at the moment.
That said, the need for a physical office cannot be eliminated completely. Whatever the size and nature of your business, you will still find the necessity of personally meeting your clients, staff, suppliers, and others who play a role in your business. While you may do it at home or at a coffee shop somewhere, they do not offer the professionalism that an office provides.
An excellent option for a starting business is a serviced office. This gives you access to a professionally designed office with a highly trained support staff, without tying down your precious capital to high-costing contracts and rents.
By opting for a serviced office, you get the following benefits:
Flexibility – as you are not tied down to a long-term lease contract, you have the flexibility to expand or downsize as you need, or terminate the services without difficulty
Pay per use – you only pay for the services and facilities that you need. For example, if you need a conference room, you pay only for the actual use of one based on hourly rates.
Zero investment in office furniture and fixtures
Access to a well-trained and professional support staff without the hiring, training and salary expense
A prestigious office address without long-term lease and maintenance expense
Access to the latest technology and equipment
To fully enjoy the benefits of a serviced office, you have to make sure that you choose the right one. Here are some of the features you should look for:
A good location – a prestigious address will help give a better impression of your business
High-speed internet access and IT support
Well-furnished and professional-looking conference or meeting rooms
Clerical support from a well-trained service staff, including assistance in meetings or presentations, taking phone calls on your behalf, and processing mail
The ability to provide the space you need. You might need only a desk and a chair, or an entire office suite. A good serviced office can cater to a wide range of business sizes, and allow you flexibility in downsizing or upsizing your workspace.
State-of-the-art equipment, including video conferencing equipment, reliable telecommunications infrastructure, high-speed photocopiers, TVs, and others
