SAN JOSE, CA-You’ve heard of Software-as-a-Service, but how about Workplace-as-a-Service? Cloud Virtual Offices is hoping its trademarked model will catch on with start ups, telecommuters, home-based entrepreneurs and others that need to establish a professional business image.
The Workplace-as-a-Service model lets you customize your virtual office solutions to meet your unique business needs. You can mix and match solutions, such as live call answering services, unified messaging, a business addresses, and a corporate identity. You can also tap into traditional office space on demand.
“With affordable access to furnished executive offices and state-of-the art conference rooms at Class A office buildings, we provide our clients access to comprehensive business communication technologies and a world class support staff,” says Cloud Virtual Offices CEO Laurent Dhollande.
Virtual offices have gained momentum, in part, because they let you access a state-of-the-art business facility as if it was your very own office building. When clients want to meet with you, you can rent the conference room or other meeting space at the virtual office provider’s building. A Cloud Virtual Offices receptionist will escort them to the conference room or the furnished executive office reserved for the meeting.
Cloud Virtual Offices also gives you a local phone number, professional call screening, call patching, and unified messaging. Features of the ShoreTel VoIP system Cloud Virtual Offices uses include voicemail-to-email, fax-to-email, e-fax, and find me/follow me. And virtual office users can manage it all through a virtual phone control panel so that calls are routed where you want them to go.
As Dhollande sees it, the San Mateo office space for rent solution is well positioned to further the trend toward a more distributed workforce, increased flexibility, outsourcing of non-core activities, telecommuting, ‘green’ awareness, and a growing demand from professional firms and start-ups.
