Canadian Virtual Office Space

This past weekend I went camping. While most of my fellow campers were Canadian, there was a number of Americans who were camping with us. One of the American I met was a custom office furniture manufacturer from Ohio. We had a chance to talk for a while and he mentioned that he has been doing business in Canada for the past 20 years without a Canadian Office. He told me that he now recognizes that he needs to make his Canadian presense know, especially if he intends to increase his business on this side of the border. He was planning to open an office back in November, but the global economic downturn put those plans on hold. I asked him if he had ever considered opening a Canadian virtual office in Toronto. He said he had considered a post office box address in Canada, but was not sure t...

You Do Not Need to Bring a Parka to the Office in July

Many Toronto office space locations have two temperature setting, hot or cold. In the winter months, you are dying to get out and get some fresh cool air and in the summer you are wanting to get outside to warm up.  In other Toronto offices for rent, you can go from one end of the office where it is warm and at the other end its cool.

The reception are was quite warm and did not seem to have air conditioni...

Happy Canada Day

While our office is closed today, yours does not need to be.  With office space Toronto at Telsec office business centres, you have 24 hour access – 7 days a week, regardless of holidays.

What About Office Space with Fast Internet?

There is currenltly a lot of Toronto office space available, but what about fast internet? When you rent raw office space in Toronto, you still have to get services set up like telephones and Internet. The other factor is the amount of time you have to wait for a service technician to install. Once you are up and running, it is too frequent that you find the speed and bandwidth offered to small business is only slightly more than that alloted to home customers. To get more speed and bandwidth, you have to subscribe to the more dedicated services that can cost several hundreds of dollars per month. Even once you have your Internet connection and telephone services, you still need to purchase expensive telephone equipment to use your phone lines, and routers and firewalls to protect you from...

Day office Rental

I recently spoke with a business man who did a lot of travelling for business and had his office at home. He was considering a getting a Toronto Office Space, but thought he would almost never use it. He only meets with customers in Toronto about one or twice a month. I told him that a day office rental would be a great solution for him. I told him he could have a well appointed fully furnished executive office or even a corner office. If he had appointments with customers, he could inform the receptionist that he is expecting someone. When the customer shows up to meet him, the receptionist would welcome the guest and call him to inform him that his customer has arrived at reception, just like she would do if he was a regular office space rental client. After telling him the benefits and ...

Your company can grow without changing your address.

I was talking with a client this week about designing their new web site and business cards. They did not want to put their home address on the site or their cards, but instead were considering a P.O. Box, until they found an office. I promptly told them that a P.O. Box looks more suspect than not putting an address at all. I then told them of the virtues of a Toronto Virtual Office packages that would allow them to not only have a prestigious business address, but also a Toronto telephone number with a live professional receptionist answering his calls.  I told him the best part of signing up for a Virtual Office with Telsec, is when he decides he needs an office, he can upgrade to being an Toronto office space client without the hassle of changing his address or telephone number. A Toron...
