The virtual office is one of the most interesting innovations to come out of modern telecommunications, not least because it lets both small and medium-sized businesses eliminate the costs of operating brick-and-mortar offices. However, even though the virtual office make efficient and effective substitutes for their brick-and-mortar counterparts, there are some functions that the virtual office cannot replicate. For said functions, small and medium-sized businesses should consider renting an executive suite, which lets them benefit from having a brick-and-mortar office without having to lock themselves into their latest arrangements.
Please consider these reasons for renting an executive suite to complement the virtual office:
- Telecommunication is becoming better and better, but it is important to note that it is not as useful as face-to-face communication. In main, this is because much of human communication lies in non-verbal cues, meaning that telecommunication can result in a serious loss of meaning. Furthermore, face-to-face communication is better for building a strong relationship between the participants, not least because telecommunication is impersonal. Overall, having some face-to-face communication ensures the best results in using a virtual office, meaning that an executive suite is needed to facilitate it.
- From the perspective of small and medium-sized businesses, a virtual office is excellent because it produces enormous savings. However, having no brick-and-mortar office produces the opposite effect on potential clients because it paints the businesses as being less reliable. Having a brick-and-mortar office serves to instill a positive impression on potential clients, which is the initial step on the path to turning them into revenue streams.
- Renting an executive suite is the correct choice because it provides maximum usefulness at minimum cost. This is because an executive suite comes with most of the functions needed to run a brick-and-mortar office, while remaining flexible enough to accommodate the functions needed to support its virtual counterpart. Better still, since the operating costs are spread between multiple clients, the cost of rent is low.
- In some cases, small and medium-sized businesses should also choose a rented executive suite over other options because it restricts their options as little as possible. Not being locked into their office arrangements for up to decades at a time let’s said businesses adapt to changing circumstances with as little pain as possible.
Based on the claims presented here, it is clear that a virtual office is best when it has an executive suite to provide it with a brick-and-mortar counterpart. Better still, the combination is powerful without being too expensive.
