IRVINE, CA--In case you wondered if virtual office space is really more efficient than traditional offices, you don’t have wonder any more. The Global Workspace Association is confirming it with its latest workspace industry study.

"Industry-wide, virtual office and meeting room services grew during the recent recession, but the real story is that these segments actually emerged from the recession supercharged, posting double digit growth in each of the past two years," said John G. Jordan, president of GWA.

"Mobile workers who are self-employed or work with large companies have seen the benefits of shedding the risk and limitations of the traditional office in favor of virtual offices, touchdown space, and on-demand meeting spaces, and they are embracing these alternatives."

Before we go any further, let’s clarify some definitions. Virtual offices fall into the workspace-as-a-service category. Workspace-as-a-service is on-demand workspace available with terms that allow businesses to align workspace and business needs.

Workspace-as-a-service offer fully serviced office space on flexible terms by the hour, day, week, month or year and include office business centers, executive suites, co-working facilities, virtual offices and meeting spaces. The workspace-as-a-service industry has seen strong growth of virtual office and meeting room services, catering to the growing corps of mobile workers around the globe.

Tony Wilkins of TCS, Inc in San Francisco, California, appreciates how the flexibility of on-demand meeting spaces allows him to tailor his meeting space expenses to his clients' needs.

"I teach a business development workshop for small and midsized firms,” Wilkins says. “Sometimes my workshops have 30 people and sometimes only three. What I like most about Davinci Virtual Office Solutions is the flexibility in locations, cost and availability."
