Virtual Offices Help Companies Expand into Atlanta

Thinking about expanding into Atlanta? Or maybe opening an office in an Atlanta suburb to compliment your strategic Peachtree location? If office costs are what’s holding you back, consider how the virtual office could help you expand into this bustling southern city.

First, let’s review the opportunity. Metro Atlanta is home to 13 Fortune 500 firms and 24 Fortune 1000 headquarters. That’s pretty impressive and could be a draw for your company, especially if you are targeting Fortune 500s as clients.

Atlanta is business-friendly. The Metropolitan Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and the mayor are actively involved in recruiting new companies and offer plenty of incentives. Atlanta also offers a vibrant workforce and an attractive quality of life.

You can lower your risk of expanding into Atlanta—or even opening an office for the first time in Atlanta—with virtual office space. It might surprise you to discover that you can rent virtual office space many locations in and around Atlanta for less than $100 a month. That’s a fraction of the cost of renting traditional office space.

Whether you need a virtual receptionist to give the personal touch to customers who call in or you need a premier business address in the Atlanta area, Davinci Virtual offers a suite of virtual office technologies that serve your business. Think of them as tools in your virtual toolbox that build your business.

With a virtual office, you don’t have to move key employees out to Atlanta—or even look for people to hire in Atlanta—to get off the ground there. Davinci Virtual offers you a local phone number, local address, and even a local conference room if you need to fly in and meet with a client face-to-face.

Pound for pound, companies looking to expand into Atlanta find greater value with a virtual office—even if it’s just as a virtual home base, of sorts, while they are looking for a permanent bricks-and-mortar office space.

Why Growing Services Firms Are Choosing Virtual Office Space

It’s not must manufacturing that’s rebounding. The U.S. service sector is climbing, too. That means companies in industries like public relations, accounting, law and other “services” are picking up momentum after the recession.

According to the Institute for Supply, the non-manufacturing grew for the fifth consecutive month in May. In fact, the service sector actually added workers for the first time since December 2007, albeit just slightly. That’s a good sign for services firms from Los Angeles to New York and beyond.

Now, the question becomes how to handle that growth. Rather than rushing out to rent additional office space, growing service firms can opt for a virtual office.

Whether you need to add new employees but don’t have the additional desks in your traditional office space or your company’s status quo is to let employees work from home and meet once a week at a restaurant for a staff powwow, a virtual office can come to the rescue of busy, growing services firms.

With a virtual office, you can have a single local or 800 number for clients to call. When they do, they will be routed to the employee or department they are looking for automatically—no matter where that employee happens to be. Likewise, a virtual office gives your company a single, prestigious business address where you can receive all your mail and packages. You can even have mail forwarded to individual employees or they can stop by the physical location and pick it up at their convenience.

In fact, the key word with virtual office use among services firms is convenience. If you need to rent a conference room for a big client presentation, a virtual office provider makes that possible. If you need to do web conferencing with clients over seas, a virtual office provider makes that doable. Virtual office providers like Davinci Virtual offer an end-to-end virtual office system that can meet the needs of even the most demanding services firms.

Coffee May Not Make You More Productive, But Virtual Offices Will

Do you sit down in front of your computer every morning with a cup of coffee, ready to leverage your virtual office technologies for another productive day?

You may be fooling yourself. Yes, virtual office technologies help make you more productive. But that cup of Joe may not be doing you a bit of good.

According to a study on caffeine published in the Neuropsychoparmacology Journal, caffeine only makes you more alert if you don’t typically drink coffee. The study actually shows that heavy coffee drinkers keep right on chugging Lattes, espressos and other forms of the drink to avoid withdrawal symptoms.

While studies on the health benefits of coffee are inconclusive, studies on the productivity benefits of virtual offices are absolutely conclusive. When you work from a virtual office, you can cut down on the distractions and focus on the work at hand because you don’t have coworkers wanting to meet with you about a project (over a cup of coffee) in the conference room.

But don’t worry. If you need to meet a client or business partner in a conference room, your virtual office provider can accommodate. You can rent a meeting room or conference room by the hour, and typically enjoy free coffee service while you do.

A virtual office doesn’t have any negative long-term health effects. In fact, by helping you to be more productive you could actually work fewer hours, have more time to relax, reduce stress and boost health. OK, so that’s anecdotal, but there’s no research against it.

Again, the health benefits versus dangers of coffee consumption are still inconclusive. But studies show virtual offices can help you be more productive. Want more info on the health issues related to coffee? Check out this video:
