If you own a small business or start-ups, you’ll know how important it is to keep your outgoing costs to a minimum. From stationary to insurance, saving every penny is essential. One significant cost every business owner faces at some point or another is rent. And for small businesses, renting office space is not always financially feasible. That’s why – at Anvic – we offer virtual office spaces at affordable rates. This helps businesses benefit from all the perks of a professional office space, without being tied down to rent and bills. But first…
What is a virtual office space and how does it work?
A virtual office space provides your small business with a professional address and complete access to admin and PA facilities without having to pay rent. The ‘virtual’ element literally means you can benefit from all these essentials, at half the cost of renting a full office. Which is particularly good news if you’re trying to keep expenses to a minimum.
So, other than keeping your costs down what are the key benefits of Virtual Office space for small businesses?
1. Professional address & post-handling service
A key benefit of virtual office space is the professional address. Your address can be used on all your business correspondence and mail, which will reassure your customers and build trust. Plus, our efficient post forwarding service means you’ll always get your mail on time.
2. City-centre location minus the rent
Another great benefit of a virtual office space is that your small business can own a city-centre address, without having to pay high rental costs. You can use your city centre address to impress clients, receive mail and phone calls – but cut out the major costs of rent, bills and insurance. What more could a small business owner want?
3. Pay-as-you-go PA support
In the initial stages of launching your business, we understand that hiring and paying employees won’t always be an affordable option. But we also know how much the extra hands can help. Our pay-as-you-go personal assistants will always be on hand to help with your admin, mail forwarding and receptionist needs.
4. Cut down on commuting
With a virtual office space, you can say bye-bye to wasting precious time in rush hour traffic. There’s no need for a daily commute to the office, as you’re free to work from wherever suits you best. This frees up more time for you to work on your business while lowering fuel cost.
5. Meeting rooms on demand
Arranged a client meeting? Need a space to catch up with your team? Anvic has state-of-the-art meeting rooms available for hire at each of our four locations in Manchester and Burnley. So you only need to pay to use the room when you need it. What’s best of all is that our meeting rooms come at a discounted price with an additional 2 hours of free usage every month.
6. Low set-up costs
From buying computers, desks and office plants, to supplying tea, coffee and milk every week – setting up an office is a costly affair. Your small business can take full advantage of the benefits of a virtual office space, without facing high set-up costs. As the fees for services and amenities are shared between customers, your business can focus on making money rather than wasting it.
7. Fully flexible
As a small business, you may find that your phone has quickly become your lifeline. Missing client calls or potential meeting opportunities is something you simply can’t afford to do. Another fantastic benefit of a virtual office for your small business is having a dedicated receptionist service. Giving you complete flexibility to work on every aspect of your business, while we take care of those important calls and messages.
8. Increase productivity
Increasing the productivity of your staff is also another noteworthy benefit of virtual office space. Providing your team with the comfort, flexibility and option to work when and where they choose, will directly impact how they perform. Your employees won’t need to worry about commuting and can simply set up and start work from the comfort of their home.
With a virtual office, you can eradicate the need and cost of computers and office equipment. The term ‘Bring your own Technology’ has become increasingly popular in the business world, as more and more employers allow their staff to work on their laptops and devices. Making the work easier and convenient for everyone – while saving you a lot of money.
10. Save money. Invest in growth.
For every penny you save on using virtual office space, you can invest it in growing and expanding your business. That’s why we think the biggest benefit of virtual office spaces is not having to worry about rent, bills, insurance and maintenance. So everything you save can be put towards making your business a success.
