A practice that is gaining popularity with many young entrepreneurs is the use of a virtual office or “hot-desk” which besides being a cost-effective way of gaining stylish office space in a prestigious location, also has a number of other benefits.
The use of virtual office space is an improvement on sitting alone in a dark corner of a coffee shop because it enables entrepreneurs to stay motivated, connected, inspired and to build contacts.
Who Uses A Virtual Office?
Virtual office space is particularly suited to those people who do not require a full-time office or who perhaps work from home or who are on the road a vast majority of the time.
Creative people in particular love the virtual office concept as it keeps their creative juices flowing when they have the chance to constantly engage with new people – rather than being secluded to their own impersonal office cubicle.
What Is Provided For Me At A Virtual Office?
In a virtual office at The Business Exchange, you will be provided with a desk, chair, dustbin and access to high-speed Wi-Fi through a fibre optic network. You will also have the opportunity to use fully equipped meeting rooms which are rented out on an hourly basis, should you need a professional meeting space. You are permitted to use the business address of our virtual office on all your office stationery to create a more professional impression of your business.
A dedicated telephone number is supplied to you, which is answered and routed by our professional receptionist. All you need to bring with you is your laptop.
Optional Virtual Assistant
The Business Exchange provides you with the optional additional services of a Virtual Assistant who is able to help you with a number of daily office-related chores. The benefits of using a Virtual Assistant from The Business Exchange is that you don’t have to worry about salary, labour issues, leave, etc. All this is taken care of by The Business Exchange.
