Whether it’s a startup or a private practice that has been in business for years, a virtual office is a perfect fit for a remote business. However, they are not limited to this type of business. Any business that needs help whether they work remotely or not is eligible for one.
VO’s are a rising business trend among private practices that include lawyers, CPA’s, psychologists and more because when the economic crash of 2008 hit, many small business owners were forced to become creative in the way they operated. Virtual offices were in existence then, but grew exponentially afterwards. The affordability and freedom they lend the business owner were only added benefits.
Virtual offices are typically provided by office space and executive suite businesses. Even these businesses themselves have seen a boom due to the increased demand of remote workers. In every city in the US there are VO services offered.
Services that are offered to remote business owners make them highly desirable. Live call answering in the business owner’s name with calls transferred to whatever number instructed and voicemail/faxes to email for downloading. Mail or business license address service is another added service that allows the business owner exclusive use, typically with an assigned suite number where mail and packages are received. Mail is held in a locked mailbox or kept in a secure manner for pickup or forwarding. This provides the business owner with the security they lack when using the home address.
Conference rooms, day office, shared offices and workstations are available at many locations. Virtual office services can be purchased alone or combined for a package depending on what the business owner’s needs are. The above mentioned businesses are perfect candidates for these but also for many other business owners who need office service help with phone, mail and conference rooms.
