Will Groupon Rent Virtual Office Space in Beijing?

Have you heard the news? Groupon just started a service in China with some major local investors.  Dubbed Gaopeng.com, Groupon is taking its daily deal coupon savvy to Beijing. Groupon already has a local platform in India, Israel and South Africa.

I wonder if Groupon is using a virtual office in Beijing? I was reading last week about how Groupon was doing job interviews in Beijing for the Gaopeng.com launch. Will those employees work from a virtual office in Beijing or will Groupon and its investors lease traditional office space? A virtual office makes more sense.

Davinci Virtual Office Solutions space offers three virtual offices in Beijing. There is one at the Hyundai Motor Tower, one at the Yintai Centre, and one at the China Resources Building. All three virtual offices in Beijing are impressive, but let’s take a look at the Hyundai Motor Tower at 38 Xiaoyun Road in the Chaoyang District.

You can rent a Beijing virtual office space at the Hyundai Motor Tower for as little as $70 a month. That’s a small price to pay for a big presence in Beijing. For that price, you get a prime business address, access to a business support center, mail and package receipt, lobby greeter, client drop off and pick up point, and more. You can also rent a conference room or day office on demand for an additional feel.

Looking for virtual office space outside Beijing? Davinci Virtual Office Solutions also offers virtual office space in Shenzhen, virtual office space in Tianjin, virtual office space in Guangzhou, virtual office space in Macau, and virtual office space in Shanghai.

Alternative Workplace Strategy + Virtual Office = Smart Business

I ran across an interesting white paper on alternative workplace strategies. CoreNet Global’s Gagandeep Singh and Nadia Orawski penned it.

The premise is that over the last 20 years, business leaders have understood alternative workplace strategies as a combination of practices that blend the use of office space design, office use, technology and HR policies to get creative about how and where work is done.

CoreNet Global then offered four characteristics of what most alternative workplace strategies offer. Let’s review those briefly:

1. Efficiency and agility in the use of office space that is traditionally dedicated, expensive and mostly unoccupied, where we have seen as much as 50 percent improvement in asset performance and cost savings;

2. Mobile technology tools that allow for information access and collaboration on-demand anytime / anywhere enabling organizations and individuals to utilize the cost, life style and talent advantages of mobility and geography;

3. Flexibility and choice for workers to be productive from a variety of work settings that include corporate sites, customer locations, in transit, at home, etc. with supporting culture and policies that encourage ?results based performance? rather than time or presence based performance;

4. And a belief that the role of the “office” is to foster collaboration that will lead to innovation and speed, typically with a stronger focus on the team over the individual within the office environment.

Where does the virtual office space fit into this equation?

Well, it addresses the first point of office use efficiency. With a virtual office space, employees only go into the office as needed for meetings, which means they don’t need a dedicated space in the building, which means the company can rent less office space (though perhaps with larger meeting rooms).

On the mobile technology front, virtual office technologies have paved the way for anytime, anywhere meetings. Turning to the point about flexibility, the virtual office makes it possible to collaborate with employees from a home office, a coffee shop, or just about anywhere else with an Internet connection.

Can you see how virtual offices play a key role in the alternative workplace strategy? Davinci Virtual Office Solutions offers kudos to commercial real estate organizations like CoreNet Global that continue to do research into this growing trend.

The Rise of Virtual Office Space in Atlanta

Great article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution today. The headline says it all: “Telecommuting now metro area’s main alternative to driving solo.”

In Ariel Hart’s article, she points to state Department of Transportation data that show 7 percent of all metro Atlanta commuters teleworked for the majority of their commutes in 2010. Although 82 percent of workers still drive to work alone, there is a clear rise in telecommuting.

Davinci Virtual office solutions makes it easy to telecommute in the Peachtree State with 11 virtual offices in Atlanta. Yes, I said 11 virtual offices in Atlanta—and all areas of Atlanta. Davinci Virtual office solutions has virtual office space on Peachtree Street in Downtown Atlanta, as well as virtual offices in Midtown Atlanta.

Let’s take a look at the Midtown Atlanta virtual office as an example. Located at 1401 Peachtree Street NE, this virtual office is near Ansley Park—and you can rent at this location for just $50 a month. That’s a bargain in any city, but considering the strategic location and the quality of this virtual office space, you can’t go wrong here.

That $50 a month gets you a prime business address, mail and package support, access to a business support center, a lobby greeter, a client drop off and pick up point, mail forwarding and shipping services, and a conference room and day time office on demand for an hourly fee.

If this location doesn’t work for you, consider these other prime street addresses that you could call your business home:
