#VIRTUAL #OFFICES   #AUSTRALIA  

History

The #virtual #office idea came from a combination of technological innovation and the Information Age.

The concept has roots in the Industrial Revolution, where parallels to current work styles, specifically working from home, have been drawn.

The #virtual #office concept is an evolution of the #executive #suite industry. However, the inflexibility of an executive suite lease doesn't work for many business models and helped spur the virtual office concept.

The first commercial application of a virtual office occurred in 1994, when Ralph Gregory founded "The Virtual Office, Inc", in Boulder, Colorado.

Services

The term "virtual office" implies space utilization, but a full application includes professional live communications.

Communications service

#Remote #receptionist – A team of workers in an office environment working remotely, using high-tech Computer Telephone Integration software, to replace a traditional receptionist.

#Virtual #assistant – A virtual assistant is often a "lone eagle" working from home, who rarely meets their clients face-to-face. A virtual assistant typically has no access to CTI Software. Rates run $25 an hour and up.

#Answering #services /call centers operate from a centralized location for the purpose of receiving and transmitting a large volume of requests by telephone. Users lament problems of security, impersonal staff with high turnover, language barriers, translation errors and a less-than-professional image. When selecting an answering service, look for one based in your own country so that there are no language barriers.

#Voicemail is a low-cost technology that stores voice messages electronically. Recent advances in technology allow for the conversion of Voicemail messages to email making message retrieval far more convenient for business owners.In customer service applications, voicemail has limitations. Used for customer service, voicemail has become synonymous with frustration. The complaints are legion and have inspired spoofs on the voicemail experience. Studies also show that up to 75% of callers simply hang up when their call is answered by a machine.

#Virtual #office #space – Virtual office gives you a chance to own a high profile reputed address in a city of your choice, at a fraction of the buying or renting cost of such an address.

#Phone #answering #service – Virtual office phone answering service bridging the gap between you and your numerous clients.

Space services

#Professional #address – A prestigious building to be used as the business address. A professional address alleviates the privacy and personal security concerns of running a home-based business. A user can expand into new markets by utilizing a provider with multiple locations to establish a professional presence in the desired growth markets.

#Mailing #address – The professional address can be used for accepting, sending and forwarding mail without the connotations of a PO box. Under US law, a PO box is to be clearly indicated and so not conducive for most corporate entities in this regard. Some VO providers offer 24/7 access to individually assigned and locked mailboxes. This allows the staff of a VO user to have a centralized location as a convenient vehicle for the secure transfer of paper documents 24/7. 

#Open #envelope #scanning – A handler opens the mail and scans the contents, emailing or transferring the digitized documents onto a cloud-based file storage system that users can access immediately. The opened physical mail is then shredded unless further storage is requested.

#Reception #courtesies – Receptionists at the business address can receive and sign for incoming overnights, deliveries, packages and provide document drop-off/pick-up services.[citation needed] On-site witnesses and notaries may be available, depending on the provider.

#Business #meeting #space – The on-demand use (hourly, daily or weekly) of conference rooms and offices for meetings. Meeting space can often be rented at short notice.

#Casual #workspace – As an alternative to the distractions of co-working or the interruptions of a home office, office space is available on an occasional or "drop-in" basis, either hourly, daily or monthly.

#Executive #suite – A small percentage of VO users lease space full-time time.

On-site amenities – A full-service virtual office will provide broadband Internet, fax-copier-printer, advanced phone features, conference calling, video conferencing, kitchenette and a business-worthy lobby/waiting area.

#Virtual  #office #solution – Virtual office solution gives dual advantages in whichever city you need and a reputed business address which would marginalize the gap created by established brand value.

#Live #virtual #receptionist – A virtual answering service is an automated system with a live virtual receptionist. This kind of service can be enjoyed without purchasing expensive equipment.
Other services - Other services may include creation of a website, business cards, attorney consultations.

Users

A #virtual #office blends home and work to gain efficiencies in both. Office expenses are low, while the user's professionalism retains the image of a traditional, high-cost office. A virtual office user can reduce their environmental impact, as well as the personal negatives of a daily commute. Virtual office clientele have the flexibility to match expenses with revenue fluctuations immediately, as the costs are usually variable. 

A #virtual #office can allow for low-cost expansion with no long-term commitments. Users taking advantage of virtual office receptionists eliminate the traditional burden of health care, records, payroll, insurance & rent. Also, traditional time-off (sick days, vacations, personal leaves, etc.…) does not apply to a virtual staff.

Economy

#Virtual #offices are experiencing growth even in a recessionary economy, and not just in the United States. As businesses look to trim expenses, virtual office services help reduce overhead while keeping professionalism high. For example, by paying for space and communication infrastructure on an as-needed basis, businesses can keep office expenses to a minimum. 

The portability of today's technology also allows for a more flexible work environment. As businesses trend to a more "online" workplace, the notion of paying for space full-time becomes anachronistic. Traditional receptionists  can be replaced with remote receptionist services at a fraction of the traditional cost. 

Some #virtual #office companies or telephone answering companies offer a franchise system, enabling entrepreneurs to enter the marketplace for a fraction of the usual set up costs and with the added bonus of leads being fed to them.

WHAT IS A SERVICED OFFICE

In the current economic climate, small businesses cannot ignore the flexibility advantages of taking space in a business centre with other firms.

The modern-day business centre provides a total occupancy solution which should have considerable appeal to small firms. Not only do business centres provide fully equipped offices, ‘hotdesks’ and meeting rooms, but they also a wide range of secretarial and support services.

Business centres a very attractive proposition. With no capital investment required to buy or lease office equipment or furniture, business centres offer customers immediate access to fully furnished and well-equipped workspace in city centres and in key business districts across the country.

This allows the user to concentrate their time and resources on their core business from day one, while reducing their financial risk to the minimum rental period, which is usually three months rent.

Keeping Within Your Budget

Costs for taking space at a business centre vary considerably depending on the location of the centre, ie city centre or out of town business park; the size of the office required and its physical location within the centre; together with the quality of the building and its décor. Costs are transparent and inclusive of all building, heating and lighting, reception, security, maintenance, redecoration, refurbishment and cleaning charges.

There have been a number of major surveys in recent years drawing cost comparisons between taking workspace on a conventional lease versus serviced office space in a business center..

The Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply in UK recently published its True Cost of the Flexible Office survey, which examined total occupancy costs in eight major UK towns and cities and revealed average savings of up to 50% for those firms taking space in a business centre.

Business centres make an accommodation licence charge, not rent. To make a real comparison, rental costs must include service charges, utilities, business rates, building insurance, cleaning and maintenance, receptionist, furniture and most significantly, telecoms, to generate a genuine cost comparison.

For clients there are no overheads – business centre charge for the services they provide on a pay-as-you-go basis. This flexible approach ensures companies can be very competitive – as they have the control to tailor their costs with workloads without oppressive overheads.

Essentially, there is no fixed overhead in capital investment, or sharp depreciating cost investing in today’s technology that will effectively have to be written off within one to three years.

The Benefits of Serviced Office Space

The location and working environment of your business are perhaps two  of the most important factors in its success. From ensuring you are ideally located to meet customers’ or clients’ needs to providing a comfortable and efficient working environment for your staff, the physical space your business adopts can have a huge impact on the overall success of your organisation.

With this in mind, the day-to-day management of your business property is something that most organisations do not want to worry about, meaning serviced offices are becoming increasingly popular. The benefits of attaining office space that suits the business needs, is flexible and managed by an external company are endless. Whether you are a small business looking to set up a professional workspace or a larger organisation in need of a temporary office, serviced office space offers a convenient and effective solution.

We’ve taken a look at the key benefits of serviced office space and how they could work for you.


Simple, Stress-Free Solution

 A serviced office requires very little work from the business owners and  allows you to take an easy step forward in progressing your business. This is a  key benefit of opting for a serviced office  as amenities such as internet connection, phone line and furniture is  be provided  meaning you and your staff can get to work immediately.

In many serviced office spaces there are also staffed reception desks, cleaning services and refreshment facilities all of which contribute to the ease and convenience of this option.


Convenient, Flexible Leases

One of the main factors in businesses choosing a serviced office  is the flexibility that they  offer. Conventional office leases typically last a number of years, tying businesses into the particular office and location. If your company requirements change during this time many landlords aren’t flexible enough to adjust to suit your  needs without incurring a significant cost. With a serviced office there is the option to expand a contract to suit your needs, typically without need for a lengthy notice. This is a huge benefit to organisations who may need to expand or contract at short notice, allowing them to adjust to suit any needs.


Professional, Polished Image

For smaller businesses or larger organisations needing temporary office space for a short-term project, leasing a serviced office allows you to maintain and promote a professional and corporate image. When visitors arrive at your building they will be greeted by a friendly customer service team and welcomed to a professional environment. You can then take your visitors to professional meeting and conference space, with everything catered for in advance.

You can still portray this image even if your customers don’t visit you in person because many serviced office providers include telephone answering in their office package.  This ensures that your calls are always answered in a professional manner and messages can be taken if you’re away from the office.


Available to Businesses of all Sizes

There is often a misconception that serviced offices are exclusively suitable for SMEs or just for very short terms lets. The convenience and advantages of this solution translate just as well to larger organisations and can be used to suit a range of requirements.

Serviced offices are a perfect solution for businesses working on specific projects needing to house staff in a temporary new location or when moving an area of the business to a new area or city.

The Key Benefits of a Serviced Office and Why You Need One

Renting premises is a huge expense. When hiring a traditional office space you can’t simply pay on a month-by-month basis, and then opt-out of the contract if business turns sour – you will usually be bound to a fixed term of 3-5 years. In addition you’ll have to purchase all of the necessary communications systems; furnish and decorate the interior; and establish your brand in the area.

Serviced offices are often overlooked purely because their monthly rental fees are higher; however, you must always look at the grand scheme of things before passing judgement. A serviced office is essentially a pay-as-you-use space, and they usually have plenty of benefits that make them a more than worthy investment.

Added flexibility with short term lease agreements

According to servicedoffices.net.au, most businesses that rent serviced offices are looking for short-term lease agreements. Operators rent out serviced offices on a rolling basis, meaning that you will pay at the end of each month for the facilities that you’ve used. Because they have such small contract lengths, rental prices are often more expensive; however, the contracts will often come with far more services and facilities, and give your business more freedom if things don’t work out.

Access to pay-as-you-use facilities

With a serviced office space you’ll only ever pay for what you need. In addition to the physical space, services and facilities such as copiers, meeting rooms and even staff are available as and when you need them. For example, if you have a meeting with an important client and need to hire a conference room, you can hire one on a per-hour basis.

The chance to test new markets

Split testing is one of the best ways to figure out what marketing method will be the most beneficial for your business. With a serviced office you can test multiple markets in different locations without a significant long-term investment. This means that if you’re expanding and unsure which city to target next, then you could test more than one location with minimal risk, and then base your final decision on concrete results.

No downtime when moving in

When you move to new premises the downtime can significantly hinder the flow of business. Services offices are already set up and ready-to-use. Everything from communications systems to office equipment will be operational from the second you step in the door, meaning you won’t suffer any downtime waiting for phone and Internet companies to install new lines or set up new gear.

Access to high-quality equipment and trained staff

Serviced office operators strive to maintain their staff and technology and will ensure that all of their services and facilities are of the highest quality. Buying equipment or hiring full-time staff requires large overheads. When you hire equipment or staff from a serviced office you’re not bound to any contracts and quality is guaranteed.

Maintenance comes as standard

Spending time and money maintaining an office can be seen as an unnecessary expense. According to BSRIA, the average cost for maintenance is roughly £14 per square metre. In a serviced office this cost is included in the rental fee, allowing you to save time and money hiring janitors, cleaners and technicians to maintain the office space.

Before you pay a deposit for a traditional office space, make sure you thoroughly weigh up the pros and cons of committing your business to a long-term agreement. You may find that a serviced office works out cheaper when you consider all of the overheads.

VIRTUAL OFFICES PROVIDE REAL ADVANTAGES

The virtual office concept is becoming more prevalent as employers look to it as a cost-saving measure and employees rank the flexibility as one of the most desirable employment options.

Allowing employees to work from home means your business has the ability to recruit the best workers no matter where they live and you don’t have to limit your search to those who already live in the area or are willing to move. It is also a way of retaining busy parents or those considering retirement.

Daniel Musson, CEO of the Australian Institute of Management, says businesses often benefit because flexible work arrangements attract workers who are self-driven and have significant experience professionally.

“We have about 250 employees but 1200 contracted facilitators. Our flexible workforce is based around our training programs as we bring people in to deliver training,” Musson says. “It’s a great outcome for the organisation because we are not carrying large employee overheads, but at the same time people can work for other clients.”

For some organisations the virtual office concept has been tried and tested and, as Yahoo discovered, is not for all.

Last year, Yahoo’s new Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayer made the bold move of ordering workers back to the office. The policy change was explained in a company memo citing face-to-face interaction among employees as essential in fostering a collaborative culture. Bank America also made the move to reduce its popular “work-from home” program, calling for workers in certain roles within the organisation to return to the office.

So when deciding if a virtual office structure will work in your organisation, there are factors that need to be considered. A 2012 white paper on managing in a flexible work environment suggested that to successfully implement flexible work arrangements, managers needed “more training, improved skills in negotiation and communication, better performance management techniques, higher levels of organisation, the capacity to co-ordinate complexity and a strategic ability to see the long-term benefits, even if short-term costs are looming large”.

One concern managers have is not knowing if their team is performing when not being watched. Musson recommends managers communicate clear, measurable objectives to their employees.

“You need to put processes in place so the employee can keep connected regardless of their workspace,” Musson says. One way to monitor progress is to set specific objectives that workers must achieve within an agreed time period. Alternatively, you may require your staff keep a diary of how they assigned their time each day that you can review.

“Culturally in organisations, we need to be more focused on outputs than inputs. If they’re getting the job done and getting the results then we should be happy,” Musson says.

As well as establishing the workload that is expected, the 2012 white paper also suggested managers should discuss with their staff agreed rules for the use of emails, texting and phone calls, including reasonable expectations around response times and guidelines for staff outside of their agreed hours.

While it is important to ensure workers are being productive, it is equally essential to make sure they’re not overburdened. Without being able to see them, it is easy to forget what they’re working on and assign them extra tasks.

Another issue managers need to consider is how to foster relationships with subordinates when you can’t see them. This will depend on individual staff members and you need to consider the importance of communication. Will daily phone calls and email suffice, or is some face-to-face time essential?

Musson suggests structured systems of communication are the best way to interact with staff.

“Don’t leave it to an ad-hoc ‘call me if you need me’ approach. You have to lock in time. Also, they may work from home but that doesn’t mean they can’t come in once a month or once a quarter. Don’t think that because they work from home they don’t want to be invited to things,” Musson says.

When allowing employees to work remotely, businesses, under work health and safety laws, still have the same obligations to ensure the health and safety of workers, regardless of where the worker performs their duties.

Safe Work Australia suggests risk management of home-based offices may include obtaining information on the home-based work environment and the tasks to be performed, which allows work health and safety risks to be identified and assessed. They also suggest managers provide training, information and equipment the worker needs to do their work in a healthy and safe manner. This could include advice on how to set up a desk so it is safe or provision of ergonomic equipment. This should be followed up by a periodic review of the arrangements to ensure the measures are sufficient.

How to manage yourself

Working remotely can offer a world of flexibility. A study by McCrindle Research in 2013 analysed the lives of 250 people who worked from home and found 45 per cent reported one of the main advantages of working from home was having the flexibility to juggle other commitments, while 25 per cent said it allowed them to enjoy a better work-life balance.

However, the “anywhere office” isn’t about sleeping in late, wearing pyjamas and catching up on housework, and it’s certainly not for everyone. If you’re the type of person who needs company or is easily distracted, you might want to reconsider whether this structure is really for you.

At home you won’t have the luxury of co-workers sitting next to you and interruptions can be frequent. To avoid distractions it is important to differentiate between your home life and your work life. Set strict working hours, like the ones you would adhere to in a real office. That means waking up at a reasonable time, getting dressed like you’re going to work and actually going into a designated “office” room in your house. If you have children you may need to realistically schedule your “office hours” around school or childcare.

Another challenge you may encounter is staying relevant. A 2014 study by Symmetra, an international consulting agency, found that despite flexible working arrangements becoming a permanent feature of some workplaces there is still an unconscious bias against employees who use these options.

The research found that although there is little or no objective evidence to support the negative imputations, those in leadership positions still viewed flexible workers as less committed than traditional full-time employees. So when it’s a case of out of sight, out of mind, it can be difficult to let the boss know you’re motivated, committed and able to take on a bigger role.

Musson advised flexi-workers not to buy into the tall poppy syndrome and to let people know when you are doing a good job. Brush up on your communication skills, make note of how much work you have been doing and explain your strategies for coping with an increased workload if you get a promotion or take on a different role. If possible, schedule face-to-face time and occasionally come into the office.

The Benefits of Serviced offices

Where a business is based is of crucial importance. 
Whether it's to attract and retain the right people, portray the right image to customers or be in the best possible place to keep business buoyant.

Location and the working environment can be the difference between success and failure. Day-to-day property management is not something that most companies want to worry about and that is why serviced offices have grown in popularity. They enable businesses to have accommodation that suits their individual needs without the hassle of finding, managing and furnishing the space. 


The Benefits

One of the main reasons why many businesses chose to take space in a serviced office is flexibility it gives them. Conventional leases, which typically last for three or fifteen years, tie businesses in to their offices. This means that if during the life of a lease, a company's space requirements change - whether they need to expand or contract - they are unable to adjust without incurring significant costs, administrative issues or delays. 

By contrast, in a serviced office tenants are able to expand and contract as they wish, usually at very short notice. This can be beneficial to businesses when times are good and they need more space quickly, or conversely when it needs to contract. With serviced offices neither of these scenarios are problematic, allowing companies to remain flexible - something that is increasingly important in today's fast moving economy. 

As well as flexibility, serviced offices, such as those offered by MWB Business Exchange, allow businesses to enjoy an ‘all inclusive' service. For a fixed price, tenants can expect to receive everything they will need to run their businesses, from desks, chairs and telephones, to staffed reception desks, cleaning services and refreshment facilities. 

You might think that this flexibility and ‘all inclusive' service would be more expensive for a businesses than a conventional lease, but in many cases it is in fact more cost effective. The costs involved will vary depending on the location, how many desks are taken and the length of stay, but serviced offices should not be thought of as an expensive option once all the associated costs involved in leasing or buying an office are taken into account. For example, a business in a serviced office will require much less space than in a conventional office as receptions, corridors and break out space is not leased in a serviced office but are with a conventional lease. 


Who are serviced offices for?

Serviced offices are sometimes wrongly seen as the exclusive preserve of SME's looking for temporary accommodation, often in out of town business parks, but this is a misconception. While SMEs do benefit greatly from serviced offices - with the ability to set up quickly (within days) and enjoy facilities that they would otherwise not be able to afford, they are not the only ones who benefit. Larger businesses also use serviced offices in a variety of ways. 

Some may choose to move their whole operation into a serviced office. In some cases, companies take a whole serviced office for themselves with the provider running it for them. Others may look to house 10 -20 % of their business in a serviced office as a means of allowing them to ‘flex' with the market. If they need to expand they can do so quickly while any reduction in staff numbers can be accommodated too. 

Businesses and Government departments of all sizes can also benefit from serviced offices when they set up specific project teams, need to house people in another city or move their whole business to another location. Some will use serviced offices as an interim measure while they wait for permanent premises to become available. 

Another option for small businesses, that has become available largely due to advances in technology, is the virtual office. With this, a business is able to enjoy the benefits of a prestigious address, phone number and call answering service but without actually having an office at the location. This can be useful for small businesses who are based at home but need a base and also those who have operatives working autonomously around the country. Calls, mail and faxes are forwarded for the client and meeting rooms or desks can be hired when they are required.

While serviced offices will never be a solution for every business - as there will always be those who wish to invest in property themselves or secure a location for a longer term - the flexibility and convenience of serviced offices offer solutions to all types of enterprise. 


Services available

The level of service quality that a serviced office will give a business varies depending on which operator is used. In most cases things like desks, refreshment, reception and cleaning facilities are all included. Most operators offer many more services however, such as modern and ergonomic office furniture, ‘break out' areas and full IT infrastructure. These services are included in the monthly cost while others, such as hire of meeting and conference rooms are available at many locations at additional cost. 

One of the most important considerations for a business (over and above the facilities in the office) is the staff that run their office. It is important to consider whether these staff are well trained, able to respond to your needs and are friendly, welcoming and hard working. This is because they will, in effect, be an extension of your business and your brand and will often be the all important first contact your visitors have with your company. Staff recruitment is crucial for serviced office provider MWB Business Exchange and they currently provide the highest staff-client ratio in the industry. It is important to ensure that the provider you chose is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality employees. 


IT

One of the main benefits of serviced offices is that your IT infrastructure can be managed for you by the office operator so that you no longer have to spend precious time calling your IT support if something goes wrong. A company will still supply their own computers but the network comes with the office. Some operators offer simple IT services, such as a shared network, while others offer a whole range of services for businesses that may require a high bandwidth - such as graphic designers, architects or tech companies. IT and telecom services are usually priced over and above your rental package, with prices reflecting the sophistication of the service you chose. 

It is common for telecoms to be priced by the handset with pay as you go or unlimited packages generally available. This allows a business to only pay for what they use, adding more phones as they expand. Incoming calls will often be answered by receptionists in the centre, so again it is important to check that the operator places a central importance on recruiting and training their people so that they portray the right image for the business. 


Room Layouts

Some might think that a business taking serviced office space would have to take what they are given in terms of desks and office lay out. This is not normally the case however, with many operators happy to work with the client to design and fit out the area to suit their requirements. Some businesses prefer a completely open plan arrangement with clusters of desks as this makes communication amongst the team easy. Others however, such as recruitment consultants, people providing counselling or other confidential and sensitive services may require private rooms around a small meeting room. 

Most operators will offer furniture as part of the package, however if a business wants to use their own, (perhaps they have it from a previous office), then this can normally be accommodated. Likewise, if a business has specific requirements for furniture - maybe modern striking designs are needed, or a more traditional look - then these can also be accommodated, with the operator working with you to source the right furniture. It is also worth considering whether you require an unbranded work environment to allow your brand to grow or if you can work within a branded building that clients will know is not yours.

Signing up and pricing 

Paying for a serviced office is usually done through a monthly invoice and clients sign a licence agreement for the space that they will take - normally worked out on desk by desk basis. The fee is agreed during the sales process with extra cost added for IT and telecoms requirements. Any additional services that are used (such as meeting rooms) are added to the monthly bill. 

As mentioned previously, serviced offices allow companies great flexibility to expand and contract and they also allow them to move in and out of offices very quickly. Businesses can generally move into their new offices within a week if they need to and sometimes within 24 hours. This will of course depend on what the office availability is within a certain location. Conversely, and unlike a conventional lease, a business can typically move out of a serviced office with as little as two or three months notice. 

Conclusion

Serviced offices don't just offer businesses a temporary office space solution or small businesses a desk while they are starting up. They also offer permanent solutions to businesses of all sizes because of the flexibility they allow and the services that they provide, taking the hassle and administration out of office space. Increasingly, serviced office space is able to offer a whole range of office solutions whether that is an out of town open plan space or a state of the art, contemporary office right in the centre of London. They also offer businesses simple and transparent pricing that can provide real value for money when all the costs associated with long-term leases are taken into account. 

It is however important to use a reputable operator, like servicedoffices.net.au when taking serviced office space as a business will be relying on them to run their office for them - from fixing the microwave when it breaks down to answering calls or meeting clients when they visit. When looking for serviced office space, businesses should be clear on exactly what they need to get from the location and what services they value. If they do this then they give themselves every opportunity of finding an office where they can flourish.
