A virtual office is a location that is neither related to nor attached to the actual place in which your company transacts business. Virtual offices offer a variety of business services such as a real business address (as opposed to a P.O. Box), a phone number with voice mail, various mail services and more.
Depending on the type of business you own, there are many potential advantages to retaining virtual office services.
For starters, a virtual office provides you with an actual, physical address. Thus, all your mail—packages, letters and any potential service of process—will be sent to one place, where it will be accepted and forwarded to you. Your business will be able to accept packages from anywhere, as they will be shipped to your virtual office and then forwarded to you. Most virtual office services even filter out junk mail, so you’ll be able to focus on what’s important to you—your company—rather than dealing with annoying junk mail.
A virtual office also makes your communications convenient if you travel. You can access all your mail and phone calls from your phone, wherever you are.
Flexibility is the key advantage of a virtual office. Your company gets a physical address, a phone number and whichever mail services you subscribe to, but you don’t have to pay a cent in rent or utilities and you can alter your subscriptions to increase or decrease volume whenever it suits your company’s needs. You save both time and money!
In addition, a virtual office service is reliable and consistently professional—specialists will be accepting your mail and services of process, and scanning them so they can be sent to your email. Your phone calls will be automatically redirected to your voice mail for you to access them on demand and archive if you wish.
