Below is a guest blog provided by Portal Business Centres in Warrington. To read more about Portal please see our Warrington Serviced Office listings.

Serviced offices are often perceived as being just for the SME’s market due to the ability to set up quickly, usually within days and making use of the on site facilities that are provided for them; telephony, meeting rooms, IT support, utilities provision and more. They are not the only ones who benefit. Large and small businesses can and have benefited from serviced offices in a variety of ways.

Satellite Offices

Serviced offices are ideal for companies that are looking for a regional presence in a different area, or as a means of reducing the time travelled and expenses incurred by their mobile employees by creating a central hub where they can meet and work.

Other companies may look to house 10 -20 % of their business in a serviced office as a means of allowing them to ‘flex’ with the market. If they need to expand they can do so quickly while any reduction in staff numbers can be accommodated too. Ideal in the current economic times.

Project Teams

Businesses of all sizes can also benefit from serviced offices when they set up specific project teams. It is ideal when businesses need to house people in another city or move their whole business to another location for short periods of time. Some will use serviced offices as an interim measure for contract work, while others may wait for permanent premises to become available.

Virtual Offices

Another option for small businesses is the virtual office. Businesses are able to enjoy the benefits of a prestigious address, phone number and call answering service but without actually having an office at the location. This can be useful for small home based businesses or those companies who have operatives working autonomously around the country.

While many think serviced offices are solely for the SME market they offer fantastic flexibility and convenience and offer solutions to an array of all types of enterprise.
