According to IDC, the number of mobile workers worldwide could top 1 billion by the end of 2010. That’s almost mindboggling.

Davinci Virtual and PeopleCube are among a growing number of companies that are working from various angles to help bring alternative workplace solutions to the fore. There are software issues, culture issues, space utilization issues and more to be considered as corporations venture into alternative workplace solutions.

Davinci Virtual hits the alternative workplace challenges from the virtual office perspective. Virtual offices offer mobile workers the best of all worlds. With virtual office solutions, you can tap into call answering and call forwarding services. Davinci Virtual, for example, offers virtual receptionists that can do everything from take messages to take orders.

You can also leverage traditional office space when you need it. Whether you need day offices, conference rooms, or meeting rooms, virtual office companies like Davinci Virtual give mobile workers a more professional alternative to Starbucks.
