Great Question.

Many have heard of virtual offices, but few know what they are—or how they can benefit businesses.

That’s why we’ve created this post: to explain to you what a virtual office is and how it can benefit your business.

Let’s jump right in:

So, Tell Me What a Virtual Office Is


In easy-to-understand terms, a virtual office is a way for your business to have communications services without having to use any of your office space.

These services cost a fee. But, the fee pays dividends—in the form of long-term cost savings.

What’s Included in the Communications Services?

Five very important features:

  • A high-tech computer receptionist that uses state-of-the-art software
  • A dedicated assistant that works out the comfort of their own home
  • Off campus answering services that handle large volumes of calls
  • Electronic voicemail machines
  • A phone answering service that directs phone calls

As you can imagine, these five features will save you a huge amount of time.

Great, but how does this save me money?

Money is saved by a reduction in overhead costs. And what’s great is that you don’t sacrifice professionalism or efficiency. In fact, studies show that both will actually improve.

Okay. I got it.
