The Washington Virtual Office as a Tool for Business Advancement

An office is an area designed for people who need to work. It is a physical space where swivel chairs, tables and computers are used by people in business attires for at least eight hours a day, five days a week. But how about people who work outside the confines of the office?

The answer to these people’s needs is the virtual office. The term virtual office was first used in a 1983 airline in-flight magazine article. In 1994, Ralph Gregory founded The Virtual Office, Inc. now known as the Intelligent Office. This is the first company to commercially apply the virtual office concept, an evolution of the executive suites industry.

Virtual offices are very cost-efficient while keeping employee professionalism at high levels. You spend less and require few resources when you set up a virtual office. Virtual offices make it easier for employers to keep track of their employees, since they can be asked to input their work in easy-to-access online databases. These databases are secured and backed up for the protection of the company and the business.

Virtual offices provide communication and space services. Communication services bridge the gap between the company and its clients. They can easily discuss business concerns and address inquiries. Space services are basically online workspaces for the employees. The employees can post their output in the online workspaces and interact with other employees.

A simple illustration of the virtual office concept would be a Washington-based businessman. This businessman needs to travel frequently to personally meet clients. His staff in Washington, DC is left to oversee day-to-day business operations. If he wants to check on his staff, while personally conferring with a client in another country, he can use the Washington virtual office to communicate with them and get updates. This can assure him that his business is running smoothly.

The Washington virtual office is particularly useful to owners of small enterprises. Even if his employees are physically absent or working in their homes, the small business owner can send them important messages. Communication and monitoring are made easier through the virtual office.

Among the users of the virtual office system are accountants, lawyers, doctors, business consultants, and real estate companies. They find this set-up practical and efficient for their everyday work. You will also find the Washington virtual office a big help in running your business and can even take it to the next level of modern office set-ups.
