Shared Offices Help Cut Costs

Nov 3, 2007
The San Francisco Bay Area is not only a great place to live but also a great place to work in, but the expense of a full-time office in this high-rent area leaves many part-time or non-traditional companies with little options. And the competition to get the few vacancies available is intense.

But there is an innovative office space solution in use around San Francisco and other high-rent, high-demand metro areas. If you need a workspace for only a few hours each month, a shared office arrangement is worth considering.

With these special types of accommodations, you have times when you can meet with your clients in an office atmosphere. Many of the part-time arrangements offer a receptionist to greet you and your clients in the spacious and elegantly decorated front lobby area. You can expect comfortable spacious seating for your guests.

Usually there are also secretarial staff members on duty to help with any word processing and secretarial tasks you may need to have completed. This is an example of the full service options available to you for your shared office contract.

Different packages offer such services as telephone answering, voice mail, conference room usage, an established mailing address and mailbox, directory listing, fax machine use, and break room usage.

Beside a receptionist in the lobby, staff support can include, typing, transcription, answering service, technical support, and janitorial service.

These workspaces are already designed with the business conscious professional in mind. Most situations have each space fully equipped with the latest technology and design. There are accommodations to fit your size business - small and private or large and roomy.

A day office is also available for those traveling and who need a place for short business ventures. For those clients who have a need for conferences and meetings, these types of accommodations have comfortable and spacious meeting rooms available for short time periods. For those important presentations to your clients, you have access to the LCD projector, whiteboards, television, and VCR without the expense of buying the equipment for one meeting.

Other amenities you will enjoy when you take advantage of this type of work environment include a lobby directory listing for better business presence, complimentary covered parking for you and your guests, and utilities and high-speed internet included with the suites.

The use of the part-time office suites allows you to be the best at what you do without having to worry about the cost of full-time equipment and square footage. If you are trying to start your business or just want to help your bottom line in expensive metro markets, shared office space is a great option.
