When you hear the term, “Virtual Office,” what comes to mind? A room full of cubicles in some dusty building set away in a not-so-appealing part of town? A Bring-Your-Own-Coffee (BYOC) set up that is austere, bare, and kind of sad-looking? Well, those assumptions are simply not true! In fact, Virtual Offices can be really spectacular work environments with all the perks of your own office—but sometimes even better. Here are 10 things a virtual office can offer that you may not have realized:
1. Fully Furnished Kitchens AND Fresh Coffee
Need that cup of Joe in the morning to kick start the day? Many virtual offices have fully stocked fridges and cabinets, flatware, etc., just as you’re used to.
2. Mail Service
Need a package delivered ASAP? Many virtual offices can handle that. Leave those types of worries at the door!
3. Professional Reception and Administrative Services
Virtual receptionists offer many great services, including phone answering, notary services, social media management, appointment scheduling, and more. To learn more, check out our page on Virtual Assistant Services.
4. Conference Rooms and Meeting Rooms
In these equipped spaces, you’ll often find a conference phone, wifi, video conferencing, a whiteboard, and connectivity to a flat screen for presentations. Many virtual offices will also help with catering, or provide water and coffee for your meeting.
5. 24/7 Access
It’s 10pm on a Sunday, and you just remembered you need to print important documents for Monday morning. Not a problem! Some virtual offices offer 24/7 access, so you can work when you need to.
6. Vibrant Locations
Many virtual offices have pretty great addresses in the hippest parts of town. For example, our Tysons Corner office is right near the new metro station, countless great restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.
7. Rental Flexibility
If you need the office for only an hour, that’s okay! Many virtual offices can accommodate your specific needs and offer hourly, daily, and weekly rentals.
8. Office Equipment
A spacious desk, a comfortable chair, a copier, fax machine, printing—a virtual office is not some empty shell of a place where you have to bring your whole office in with you everyday! It’s all there waiting for you.
9. Lower Overhead
Forget about the expense and commitment of a long-term commercial office space lease. Forget about hiring a full-time staff. Virtual offices can fit your budget, relieving you of a lot of stress in the meantime.
Virtual offices are there to make YOUR life easier, to cater to your specific needs. Always inquire about the options your virtual office offers, so you can get just what you want.
