Over recent years, Allied Offices has noted the rocketing costs of commercial office space, claiming that today, a virtual office presence has become more affordable than the traditional commercial office. Now, working virtually anywhere has now been made significant easier by the company, a specialist in office suites and virtual office solutions in North America, who has just released a new infographic.
Businesses intending to run operations from a brick and mortar office space will have to spend a minimum of $15,000 per month and be ready to shell out more for electricity, the company reveals.
Other costs incurred to set up a traditional commercial office include expenditure for furnishing the office space, telephony and salaries of the employees.
In contrast, users can ‘own’ a virtual office for as little as $150 per month and even though it is not their property, it gives them a tangible business identity.
By paying the small amount of $150, businesses can enjoy the services of very skilled and proficient receptionists, as well as gain access to attractive furniture, high speed Internet and world class phone equipment that can cause a dent in the pocket if set up on their own.
Ultimately, this allows businesses to save quite a sum of money while granting their workers the flexibility to work anywhere they want knowing they still have the amenities of a physical office building.
The conglomeration of office and virtual office provided by Allied Offices also offers phone equipment, Internet, day offices and conference rooms to users.
More information in the infographic promoting working from home includes:
· Costs for a commercial office, including an average electric bill of up to $250/month, $2000 for office furnishing, $1000 per computer, and more which can all be omitted when virtually working.
· Compared to the average rent of a minimum $735 to a maximum approximate $29,000, being stuck in a multi-year contract will cost you big bucks. Conversely, when working in a virtual office, you can enjoy working on a month-to-month basis.
Allied Offices is present in North America, Canada and Europe. The company claims its services provide businesses with a professional image through a "pay for what you need as you need it" theory.
The company was also in news this summer for announcing expansion into England with the installment of twelve office centers in the greater London metropolitan area.
