Get to Know OfficePlace: Virtual Offices
The pandemic has completely changed every aspect of the way we go about our daily lives. From our shopping habits to social interactions and travel, nothing is the same as it was prior to the start of the pandemic. This holds true for the business world and employment options.
Prior to March 2020, a large segment of American workers got up every day, dressed in their business and business casual attire, and prepared for their commute to the office. For most American’s, these daily routines do not exist anymore. Whether people are working from home or having to find a completely new form of employment, the American office place as we previously knew has changed forever as guest rooms, bedrooms and home offices become the office norm.
However, it is still invaluable to have an actual address attached to your business.
Let me introduce you to the concept of a Virtual Office.
A Virtual Office at OfficePlace
One of the biggest benefits of a virtual office is the ability to work from anywhere you want. A virtual office provides you with an actual address that you can use for your business. This is a must-have for Google mapping and for your company image. A P.O. box just doesn’t do it anymore.
Your new address is ideal for establishing and maintaining a reliable and long-term way to get your mail and packages which are processed, signed for, and stored for your 24/7 anytime pickup. Virtual offices are also ideal for setting up a business presence in a local market. Popular as a second location address and for out-of-state organizations that need a Connecticut address, virtual offices offer a wide array of solutions.
Along with your professional business address, a Virtual Office at OfficePlace provides you with a mailbox and a key to secure and hold your mail. Packages are accepted, signed for and held for you as well. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your packages are in a safe and secure location.
24/7 Access to Your Virtual Office Mailbox
We understand that the standard 9-5 work schedule does not apply to entrepreneurs and small business owners and that is why OfficePlace offers 24/7 access to the mail lobby. Located in a safe and secure setting in Middletown, Connecticut, clients are free to stop by anytime and pick up their mail.
Our doors are unlocked during “regular” business hours, but every Virtual Office client receives a passcode that grants access to the office lobby any time of the day or night.
Meeting Rooms and Day Offices Are Available
Another advantage of being a virtual office client with OfficePlace is the ability to utilize one of our many offices or meeting rooms. Scheduling a meeting at OfficePlace gives you a safe space to meet potential clients and takes away the worry of inviting strangers into your home.
If you need a day office, private office, or office suite, we can help set you up in one of our spaces that is perfect for you to work in peace and quiet – no dogs barking, kids playing or doorbells in the background. Every office is fully-furnished with a chair, desk, monitor and includes wi-fi, access to a full kitchen, coffee bar and free parking.
Need to meet with a few co-workers or potential clients? No problem. OfficePlace has eight different types of meeting room setups to meet your needs.
No Long-Term Contracts
Flexibility is a running theme when talking about Virtual Offices and that’s no different as it relates to rental agreements. We understand the many challenges that you face as a business owner – we’re business owners too – and we are here to work with you. There are no long-term commitments with a Virtual Office from OfficePlace. Your first month will be prorated from the start date.
