What is a virtual office and how does it work?

April 7, 2020

Recently, humankind has been exploring more virtual ways than ever before to stay connected, raise awareness, share our angst, and come together individually to produce amazing living collages of this epic moment in everyone’s lives. So, in the current scheme of things, you might think a virtual office is a place you go to online, like a Zoom meeting to conduct business. However, in the coworking space of things, a virtual office plan is quite different.

Flexible Shared Workspaces Offer Many Options

Flex spaces offer a variety of membership plan options to fit any size business, in a broad spectrum of industries. At shared office spaces, flexible monthly membership plans range from private offices and dedicated desks to shared desks and virtual offices. Many businesses need full-time secure offices while other businesses are geared to only need to work at an office once or twice a week, and yet other businesses only need an appropriate space to work while traveling. Others, such as tech companies don’t need an office space every day but do need to meet once a month or so. Then, there’s the virtual office plan.

Startups and Work from Home Businesses Benefit from Virtual Office Plans

For other small business owners who work from home or are just starting up, a virtual office enhances your brand’s image. First impressions make a difference and virtual office plans are designed to promote your business by giving you a professional local business address with mailing services. A virtual office can heighten your professional image in several ways, adding additional layers of professionalism to your growing business by:

  • Accepting your mail and offering a scan to email option
  • Assigning your business a suite number
  • Providing live receptionist service to transfer your calls
  • Displaying your business in our directory
  • Offering other services on request

Other Benefits of a CoSuite Virtual Office Plan

Along with providing a high-profile business mailing address, CoSuite’s virtual office plans allow members an upscale office environment to meet with clients or to rent conference rooms at member prices for presentations. Impress your clients with contemporary conference rooms, equipped with super-fast Internet, business-class office equipment, audio/visual capabilities, and complimentary snacks.

Virtual Office Plans Help Businesses Expand into New Markets

For businesses looking to expand into new markets, such as Latin American businesses, virtual office plans offer the opportunity to test the waters and put down some roots, before investing the time and effort to establish a brand in uncharted waters. CoSuite virtual office plans provide a professional platform and access to the local coworking community that represents a microcosm of an area’s economic profile. Once established in a new location, businesses can take advantage of flexible monthly contracts to upgrade to a physical suite with all of the services and amenities required to grow a business.

Virtual Offices Provide a Home Base for Traveling Professionals

On the other end of the virtual office spectrum, business owners who travel often benefit from the convenience of a home base that a virtual office plan provides. You can check your mail, perform administrative tasks, and stay current with ongoing projects and correspondence via your virtual office plan. In addition to a professional address in a desirable neighborhood, CoSuite virtual office plans add a personal touch with live receptionists fielding your calls and providing live customer service. Improving your customer experience will help expand your brand’s footprint, leading to brand loyalty and referrals that help your company move into its next phase of success.

Virtual Office Inspired

While a lot of businesses dip their toes into the flexible workspace world via a virtual office plan and then opt for suites with more privacy as their companies grow, for other businesses, moving into broader virtual operations is more suitable for their purposes.
