Remote working has in the last decade or so become a very popular solution to funding office space, and not only self-employed and start-ups are finding remote work a workable alternative to office traditional office space. SMEs are also finding that remote work can in many ways be a more efficient and effective way to fund office space. With the virtual office platform, the remote work can be complemented by the virtual office.
In Hong Kong, the virtual office has found a following in a business community where high office rents move businesses away from the major financial centres, in this case, Finance Street and Peking Road. Servcorp virtual offices, especially, can give businesses a corporate address while forgoing the expensive commercial rental price tag. Virtual offices through Servcorp are trending for this reason and others.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the reasons why Servcorp’s virtual offices are the new ‘in’ thing for 2019.
World-Class Fit Out
The fit out provided by the company is one of the highest quality for businesses trying to convey corporate professionalism. Your lease provides you with access to space in the buildings off Finance Street and Peking Road, and while it is on an as-needed basis, you can find yourself holding meetings in a world-class building overlooking Victoria Harbour. Additionally, the support staff comprised of receptionist and IT support can help make sure your business reflects the most professional image to others. Servcorp prides itself on presentation, and the fit-out offered by the company more than does a great job of providing businesses with their needs but also does a great job of giving your business shine.
Reliance On Technology
A greater influence on the Servcorp virtual office trend is a push by businesses in the city toward more reliance on technology. Because the virtual office is a primarily a technological platform, there is expected to be great emphasis on improving this particular office plan to adapt to the needs of modern business. As it stands, there are technologies that can perform a host of tasks online, and cloud-based app have made it possible for professionals in different parts of the world to work with each other.
Other apps and software programs allow businesses to recruit, hire, and employ professionals from all over the world. Through communications technology, businesses can video-conference, in addition to using the number of online meeting apps to communicate with one another. Servcorp has become extremely popular because the office format is in line with the trajectory that technology seems to be taking in business.
Another trend that is driving business is sustainability, and in the last few years, it is not only businesses with a green agenda that are latching onto environmentally-friendly practices. Servcorp’s virtual office is a great way to fund office space that lessens the impact on the environment. For one, the commute to the office only happens when there is a meeting with the virtual office, as opposed to making the trek into the city. Furthermore, the fewer resources that are used in terms of running an office the more businesses contribute to sustainability. Finally, its popularity might also have to do with the equally popular surge in coworking that allows businesses to share space but also is advertised as an alternative to conventional leasing with the virtual office.
More Than A Trend
As businesses look for more efficient ways to manage their offices, the virtual office will definitely become a staple on the business scene. In Hong Kong, high rents coupled with better technology and a green platform make the virtual office a favourite in the upcoming year. More than a trend for Servcorp, it possible is a way of reinvention for the company.
