LOS ANGELES-I’ve watched Regus, the executive office suites provider, ink strategic deal after strategic deal to add value for its members. Now, one player in the virtual office industry is taking a page from that playbook.
Opus Virtual Office just inked deals with National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. The deals give virtual office users free Emerald Club and makes these two companies the preferred rental car suppliers for Opus Virtual Offices. This is a great deal for virtual office users, who are many times road warrior in disguise.
“Opus is proud to offer this discount program to all our members, from long term clients to new entrepreneurs looking for a top virtual office solution,” says Yori Galel, CEO of Opus Virtual Offices.
“I want to emphasize how remarkable this opportunity is. Smaller companies now have Emerald Club benefits comparable to companies spending $100,000 a year with National or Enterprise. And rental rates are capped during peak season for Opus clients.”
As an Emerald Club member, virtual office users get special recognition and speedy service every time they rent a car from National or Enterprise. Of course, you have to be an Opus Virtual Office customer to get the deal. Opus Virtual Offices start at $99 a month.
For that price, you get a corporate mailing address for privacy and image, a live receptionist who professionally answers calls and takes messages, and technology that offers amenities like a dedicated corporate phone and fax, premium call transferring, and voicemail to email conversion forwarded to smartphone, tablet, Mac, or PC.
This is the first time I’ve seen a virtual office provider step out and make a strategic alliance like this that aims to meet the felt need of its customers. I would not be surprised to see other virtual office providers follow suit, especially if this drives new memberships for Opus.
