Even with cloud computing you still need a business address

The biggest technology buzz word today in business is Cloud Computing. It joins the ranks of terms including: grid computing, utility computing, virtualization, clustering, etc. Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product. This means that resources are shared, as is software, and information is provided to computers.  The workload is taken off of one or two servers and shared by many.

Don’t Look for Cheap Virtual Office Space

The ideal situation is to find virtual office solutions without the cost of a traditional physical office space and still have the professional appearance of having a prestigious business address. So why would you look for cheap virtual office space? Cheap virtual office spaces are not often located in the downtown or even in a building that one would associate with a business office.

The cost savings of going for a cheap virtual office will end up costing your business more in terms of professional appearance and reputation in your customers’ eyes when they decide one day to stop into your office. When considering cheap virtual office space, you also have to co...

Toronto Shared Offices Instead of a Private Office

In these difficult economic times, a lot of companies do not have the resources to have a private office in downtown Toronto for outside sales reps to do their paperwork and generate leads. This is especially true for companies who do not have their head office downtown or even near the city of Toronto. Many are now using Toronto shared offices instead of a private office for sales representatives who need a space to touch down. In considering Toronto shared offices instead of a private office, companies know that with a shared office the low cost of a “touch down office space” is more cost-effective. They know that a sales rep is more productive working out of an office space Toronto that is near most of its customers than traveling to and from their home office to do their pa...

Virtual Office Toronto is Better Than a P.O. Box

When a client or potential customer sees a P.O. Box address on a business card, they start to wonder who they are dealing with or what a person is hiding. For many years most small businesses that did not have an office space would rent a P.O. Box so that they would not have to give out their home address as their business address. Today many entrepreneurs have discovered that having a virtual office is better than a P.O. Box because it is a real business address. There are many reasons why a virtual office Toronto is better than a P.O. Box. One reason is that you can meet a client at your Toronto virtual office and they believe that you really have a physical office space at this location. Unlike a P.O. Box address virtual offices are located in real office spaces that have meeting rooms ...

Office Space Toronto without TPS reports

A few years ago, after renting office space Toronto at Telsec, I approached the management about writing this blog to promote what a great office location it was.  When I tell people that I write a blog, they always want to know what I write about. So often when I tell people that I write about “office space Toronto”, they immediately think I am making reference to the 1999 movie “Office Space”. They will often jokingly ask me “Do you have those TPS reports?” Or ask me for their red stapler. These days after finally seeing the movie, I have learned to pre-empt their questions by saying “I write a blog about Office Space Toronto with TPS reports”. It was almost a year after writing the blogs that I finally rented the movie “Office Space”. After watching the film, I quickly learned what the ...
