A Virtual Office Can Be a Prime Asset for Start-Up Companies in Toronto

Independent of the specific type of business, entrepreneurs looking to launch a start-up enterprise often share a common challenge; that is, to establish and grow their fledgling company quickly, i.e. generate immediate revenue, at the lowest possible cost structure. There is a long list of non-negotiable items for which some upfront capital will be needed to get the business up-and-running and give legitimacy to the operation, but at the same time, there is only so much money to spread around, as some people are wont to say.

Consequently, owners of start-up companies are continually tasked with finding ways to keep their costs down while concurrently building a reputation within their target market. In the past, the legitimization of a business often meant the acquisition of physical office space and its related overhead/equipment costs; however, times have changed, to the extent where start-ups are now capitalizing on the virtual office model and its services.

A virtual office package allows entrepreneurs and small business owners to establish and uphold a professional image in the Toronto area and beyond without incurring the initial and ongoing costs of maintaining a physical space; in actual fact, it could be argued that within the current economy and its competitive markets, especially in Toronto, a virtual office is a prime asset for a majority of start-up businesses.

Virtual offices offer business owners a number of operational and economic benefits; the most important of these benefits would consist of the following:

  • Cost-efficiency – minimal initial investment/overhead
  • A professional and prestigious business mailing address
  • Dedicated telephone and fax numbers with local area codes
  • Customized voicemail to Email for 24-hour receipt of messages
  • Calls answered by a professional assistant during business hours
  • Access to private offices, meeting rooms, video conferencing services
  • A convenient location to meet with customers, staff, etc. if/when required

When the above factors are taken into consideration, virtual office space offers a viable option for Toronto-based start-ups; it provides the opportunity to present a professional corporate image while directing the majority of their financial and personal resources to the development of their client base and, of utmost importance, to revenue generation.

Virtual Office Services Offer a Viable Alternative to Work-from-Home Start-Ups

Virtual Offices and Their Vital Importance to Start-Up CompaniesIn many cases, start-up companies are operated from the home address of their owner; while this scenario certainly offers the advantages of convenience, personal comfort, and time efficiency, it is frequently a necessity due to financial considerations and limitations.

However, working from a basement office or spare bedroom can have its disadvantages as well, especially as it relates to marketplace presence, postal services, and a suitable environment to meet with customers, staff, contractors, vendors, etc. For such reasons, Toronto start-up owners may want to consider the alternative of a virtual office.

Officescape Canada can provide start-up companies with virtual office space, along with all essential support services, in a Class A commercial facility in Markham, Ontario; some of the benefits gained by start-up owners from this virtual office setting will include:

  • A stronger company presence
  • A prestigious business address
  • A Toronto-area mailing address
  • Fully-dedicated phone/fax numbers
  • Professional phone-answering services
  • Access to on-demand office/meeting space

  • I can’t go with any other choice...

    When I started my engineering business 4 years ago, I was looking for a space where it’s cost effective and at a prime location. It was a challenge! This is the best I could find, close to my home so the driving was faster, also the reception is exceptionally good. When you walk in the office, the welcoming atmosphere, the options I have here, I can’t go with any other choice.

  • You have the necessary simple structure which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

    We’ve been doing this for almost 8+ years on a full-time basis, and I’ve been with Officescape for just over 5 years at this point. Pretty much the length of our practice, we’ve been part of a certain shared office center. With Officescape, you get the advantage of amazing office space, professional staff to greet your clients, and not worrying about unnecessary procedures. You have the necessary simple structure, which allows you to focus on your day to day job.

  • It’s very professional and they don’t even know that its not our office!

    We started using Officescape primarily because we needed an address for mailing purposes and for our product. I use them for meeting rooms as well, when I bring my buyers in. It’s very professional and they don’t even know that that is not our Maxell office. It’s important for us to keep our profile image. Having a company in Canada for 16 years, our buyers are coming into our offices all the time, we still needed a space to have that place for our buyers to come visit us and vice versa.

  • My experience has been very positive!

    I chose Officescape because the staff are really friendly, I found them really helpful and really resourceful. I also find the building to be really clean and really bright, I like some of the architectural design. They always greet my clients very friendly, always offer them coffee, tea, water and always say goodbye to them when they leave. My experience at Officescape has been very positive!
