Back to School Can Mean Savings for Business

It is this time of year that parents start think of getting the kids back to school. While a lot of the shopping is for back to school clothing, there is also back to school supplies. Most of the major retailers who sell back to school clothing, also set up an area to put stationary and other school supplies on sale. Even the big box office supply stores will also put office supplies and computers on sale to attract parents into their stores. While a large portion of these supplies are intended for kids going back to school, a great deal of the items they put on sale can also be used in an office. Some big box office retailers like Staples, are even offering up 50% off sales on office supplies like paper, printers, pens, file folders, even desktop computers and notebook computers. The savi...

Free Blue Jays Tickets

While in a meeting this week, the conversation got side tracked and I jokingly asked, if people would use the city garbage service less, like they attended baseball games less after the strike of 1994 Major League Baseball strike? Well, obviously unless you have a Toronto office space that uses a private garbage collector, the garbage has piled up during the Toronto garbage strike. Somehow the conversation came back around to baseball and the low attendance at Blue Jays games, even when they were doing well.  So when I got to my next meeting at Telsec, I suggested a promotion. Anyone who signs up for a Toronto virtual office package during the month of August, would be given a free set of Blue Jays tickets. Yes, event when someone signs up for a $30 Toronto Mail Service virtual office pack...

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.

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 ...
