What is a Virtual Office, and How Can You Benefit From Using One?

In the ever-changing workplace environment, virtual amenities are reshaping the ways in which a business can be run. However, before one could utilize this list of fascinating amenities, a good first step is to have a clear understanding of what a virtual office is.

What is a virtual office?

A virtual office is a non-traditional office plan that provides a business with an array of the benefits of a physical business address, all while still being maintained from anywhere around the world. Virtual clients have access to all the amenities at the center including: unlimited WiFi, phone use, conference rooms, café access, desk carrels and a fully staffed team of three to assist with any administrative needs. Office spaces or meeting rooms can be rented by the hour, day, week or long term by signing a monthly contract. A major perk is once a Carr Workplaces member, a client has access to all our locations nationwide.

What types of amenities are available with a virtual office plan?

Carr Workplaces likes to offer flexible, uniquely customized virtual office plans for each client based on their wants and needs. Currently, the types of customizable plans include:

    • Virtual Mailing Address: You might be asking, “what is a virtual mailing address?” Essentially, this type of plan (otherwise known as a Virtual Mailbox or Virtual Business Address) allows anyone that may need a physical mailing address but doesn’t want to use their personal address an opportunity to use one. Typically this type of plan makes sense for home-based businesses, a digital nomad, expats, or someone that will be traveling abroad for at least several months. A team of trained professionals will receive all of the mail, which can then be picked up at any location or scanned and sent over.
    • Virtual Phone Service: Having a virtual phone service is perfect for a business that wants to have a professional answering their phone calls as needed. With this service, a professionally trained administrator will answer a local phone-number specifically designated to your business and will either transfer the call to a professional voicemail box or will transfer the call to the relevant team member.

The advantages of utilizing a virtual office plan include flexibility, cost savings, and a sense of community. At Carr Workplaces, terms can be tailored to be customizable lengths at an affordable rate. You’ll also get full access to our WorkReady PLUS app, giving you access to a network consisting of an array of professionals across industries!

Is it time to take your business to the next level? If so, consider utilizing a virtual office plan to give your company a more professional appeal and to take some of the load off of your shoulders.
