“Technology now allows people to connect anytime, anywhere, to anyone in the world, from almost any device. It is dramatically changing the way people work, facilitating 24/7 collaboration with colleagues who are dispersed across time zones, countries, and continents.” – Michael Dell, CEO of Dell Corporation, explaining why a virtual office is the future of work.
Being able to hire talent and connect globally has forever changed the way we work in and think about office space. This rapid progression has forced countless organizations to reevaluate their office structure, leading many to make the shift to mobile and virtual office options. This move has many advantages -and challenges- for the local entrepreneur and growing teams. Regardless of your business life cycle, here are a few reasons why a virtual office is worth consideration.
- Cost effective
We get it: ROI is everything. Traditional office space comes with a lot of baggage – rent, utilities, IT infrastructure, furniture, etc. A virtual office allows you on-demand access to traditional office space and meeting rooms without maintaining the high long-term costs associated with an office space lease. You enjoy hourly, daily or monthly access to fully-furnished private offices and conference rooms equipped HD web conferencing & collaboration tools. Whether you’re local to Boston or part of a global team and only in town a few times a year, you will enjoy significant savings with a Boston virtual office address.

- More productive employees
Productivity is the name of the game in any business. Setting up a virtual office is a great way to help you get there. You and your team can work from anywhere during the hours that fit your deadlines. While still enjoying the benefits of a flex term office or team room when one is needed. Employees are being evaluated on productivity rather than hours logged. Therefore, you can set and achieve higher production goals. Whether you’re a night owl or an early riser, you choose how and when you work most efficiently.
- Nonexistent commute
Have you ever done the math on how long you spend commuting in and out of work everyday? Well, we did and the results are shocking. A thirty minute commute to work everyday (which is just shy of the average in Boston) is 260 hours a year and 421 days over your working lifetime. Imagine what you could do with that time. Utilizing a virtual office means you can work when and where you want. Be it, the comfort of your own home or in a fully equipped private office or meeting room.
