As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases rises globally, precautionary measures have been implemented by governments and companies alike to halt the spread of the virus. Many companies are allowing their employees to work from home, restricting meetings and training sessions as well as cancelling travel plans.
Companies like Google, Microsoft, and Twitter have implemented the work-from-home policy. This shift can impact many businesses negatively if this approach isn’t executed effectively.
However, a Virtual Office can support a home-office shift without experiencing any restrictions on productivity or incurring large costs. The technology behind the virtual office provides a business with professional receptionists to answer and screen calls for their clients, with the added benefit of updating call instructions and call forwarding options remotely and in real time. This same number can be used to host conference calls with team members, clients and vendors. Businesses can also maintain a trusted CBD address in their city that includes mail handing services.
In addition, a skilled team of secretaries are available to assist on-site or remotely. A company or entrepreneur can access a range of remote support and home delivery services through one point of contact, an allocated personal assistant. The team can assist with a scope of services such as admin support, translations, professional printing, website design, social media management or even HR support allowing the virtual office client to focus on their business without having to deal with multiple bills and vendors and keeping their point of contact to one person.
Businesses can no longer survive without IT support in this modern world, therefore a team of local IT experts are available 24/7 to assist with a variety of tasks, from simple desktop fixes, to setting up a home-office device and linking it to the company network or help solve complex IT issues.
For urgent matters, clean meeting facilities and private offices are also available for booking online in real time at the branch closest to their home.
Servcorp pioneered the Virtual Office concept in 1980 to allow businesses to benefit from all the advantages of a prestigious address, landline phone numbers and team support without committing to a dedicated office space. While minimizing office expenses and working from home, a business retains a first-class image and benefits from a global infrastructure. As the world's preeminent provider of Virtual Offices, Servcorp has invested $100m in IT and telecoms systems to ensure our clients receive the best service possible.
