Economic Climate Causes Some Owners
Business Owners Opt For Office Amenities Sans Office
A unique business model, booming in current economy. Intelligent Office celebrates the opening of a second location in Oro Valley, AZ.
As our recession deepens, many companies are scrutinizing their expenses; they find themselves making hard choices concerning their bottom line. When the economy is booming and money flows freely, many businesses focus on revenue and not expenses. I think we can agree that these are not those times.
One way many businesses are choosing to cut expenses is by moving their offices into their homes. While this may not work for some, it does work for many. Attorneys, Financial planners, Realtors, Insurance agents and many others have found this option to be very attractive. One local businessman is helping by providing a variety of affordable office and phone solutions to make working from home a success.
Mark Harris is the owner of the Intelligent Office here in Tucson. Mark and his team of professional receptionists answer phones for a large number of home-based, as well as larger businesses in Tucson. What sets the Intelligent Office apart is that the caller has no idea they aren’t talking to the company’s full time receptionist. The Intelligent Office team prides themselves on not being an answering service, but rather a complete business solution. “We can answer any business’s phone, screen their calls, share information, schedule appointments and seamlessly connect callers to the appropriate person in any organization. Our technology allows this as multiple pages of information about our clients come up when a call comes in. The customer on the other end of the phone doesn’t know their call came through us, they just know they were treated great,” says Harris.
The Intelligent Office also offers first class office space with conference rooms, address services and actual offices a business can rent for as little time as an hour and up to a year to meet their clients, have training events or just do business.
With all of these services and this economy, business is booming for the Intelligent Office. On January 28th, they opened a second office on the northwest side in Oro Valley to further accommodate the needs of the greater Tucson business community.
“We just love being able to help other businesses stay afloat and even get ahead during these times,” stated Harris. “It’s always great to see local businesses helping each other and we are excited to be able to help our fellow Tucsonans. Together we can all come out ahead!”
