The Regus Group isn’t the only company in the alternative office space world to post strong performance in recent quarters. Davinci Virtual is following Regus’s lead with some good news of its own; news that underscores the rise of virtual offices in a down economy.
Davinci Virtual said it has exceeded all projected milestones for its first three years of operation. What are those projected milestones? Davinci Virtual had five key goals to accomplish:
- Establishing itself as a market leader for turnkey virtual office solutions
- Expanding North American operations
- Launching European offices in London
- Adding a new global meeting room reservation platform and
- Exceeding all financial goals
Let’s drill down a little further. Davinci Virtual provides virtual office space solutions to over 4,500 companies and entrepreneurs throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and Central America. That’s impressive growth for a three-year old company. The company did not offer any specifics on the financial performance.
With the economic downturn driving up unemployment – and with new start-ups expected to follow as employees-turned-entrepreneurs look to bootstrap new business ideas – virtual office providerss could see even more growth through 2009 and 2010.
Davinci Virtual will look for that growth through a virtual office concept that offers entrepreneurs the ability to tap into services and facilities on-demand without the requirement of leasing office space, installing phone systems and technology or hiring in-house receptionists.
“We are truly excited to celebrate three years of operations and success,” said Bill Grodnik, President and CEO of Davinci Virtual. “We will continue to add prime partner center locations, cutting edge technologies and best of breed virtual office services on a global scale.”
A Virtual Office Review
Virtual office providers tend to offer the same basic staples. Some offer more than others and Davinci is in the “more” group. Davinci’s virtual offices and services include local or toll-free telephone and fax numbers, digital voicemail, electronic fax, e-mail, online command center, unified messaging, voice and video conferencing, voicemail to email, fax to e-mail, professional live receptionist services, virtual assistants, live call answering, screening and forwarding, find me, follow me, surveys, outbound calling, customer service, appointment scheduling, order taking, and more.
Like Regus, Davinci also has a location advantage over smaller competitors. Davinci offers virtual office locations and virtual office services worldwide. With professional business addresses in over prime 600 locations, mail forwarding, lobby and directory listings, access to conference rooms and day offices, catering, administrative services, virtual assistants, business support centers, resident agent services, license hanging and more, Davinci Virtual sets it self apart.
Of course, Regus also offers virtual offices. So we may see these two companies butt heads as each continues down the growth path. That can only benefit customers as competitive drives innovation and cost containment. Congratulations to both Davinci Virtual and The Regus Group for raising the visibility of executive office suites and virtual offices. It’s been said that a rising tide lifts all ships. That’s definitely the case here. Now it’s up to the smaller competitors to make some noise of their own in their local markets.
