If you are expanding into new geographical areas, then a virtual office means your business has a real presence in the area.
Use of meeting room facilities when needed
As well as needing to hold physical meetings, sometimes you may need a little privacy when taking calls, video calls and access to meeting rooms solves this. Whilst looking at a virtual office package, it is important to cross-check whether meeting room credits or hours are included. Some providers will throw in some meeting room hire credits as part of their virtual office services; if you need more, then meeting rooms can be hired at discounted rates. Therefore, as a virtual tenant, you have all the benefits of a commercial office address including meeting room hire facilities but without actually renting physical space.
Strength in the community of like-minded people
There’s many flexible office space providers that provide virtual office solutions, in addition to their current serviced office space offerings, so they naturally have a local, national and sometimes a global community of companies under their wing. In this sense, when a business has access to a complete virtual office solution, they can apply to be part of that community and as such can participate in networking and community events, and also leech off the vibes of that community. A lot of companies attribute their growth due to the power of the community that surrounds them, if there are more like-minded people in and around the business, it helps inspire and upscale.
Opportunities to accelerate growth by networking, mentoring and client meetings
Most virtual office providers have a physical location where you can access their premises in terms of their communal space (some also have business-class workspaces) in between normal office hours such as 9am to 5pm. In this respect, one can also hold the occasional client visits there. In terms of networking, due to other businesses connected to the facility, one would be able to network with them as most virtual office providers offer a platform to network as they hold networking events for all their clients, both virtual and office.
Mailbox facilities for incoming/outgoing post and mail forwarding service
In terms of receiving physical post, no business can risk missing important mail. Any basic virtual office solution will factor in the service to take incoming physical mails and store them in a mailbox for you. Some facilities can scan your mails and electronically forward to you whilst most others will store them until you physically come collect them at some point during the month. Mail handling and forwarding as a service is a key feature that is provided by reputable virtual office providers.
Receptionist facilities to take care of call answering and forwarding
Having your incoming calls handled well is critical for your business. Some providers offer basic telephone answering facilities - someone will take your call in the company's name and take a message for you. Some receptions also can do a call divert, call forward to you or also do a call to email transcription. Others with a more complete call answering facility might give your business a dedicated answering service, a local phone number, a non-geographic number or any number you wish to use, with a dedicated receptionist virtually managing all your calls for your business.
