Open your Jakarta office in 10 minutes!

In the past, the very idea of a business opening its doors in an instant would have been unlikely, but not any more with CEO SUITE.
Now, opening a new office is as easy as ABC thanks to CEO SUITE, a business specializing in instant and virtual offices. This serviced offices company has quick solutions for any company wanting to immediately open an office without the burden of heavy capital investments or renovation costs.
Why spend days looking for office space or staff to train when CEO SUITE offers a wide range of executive office suites at landmark locations, fully facilitated with an extensive variety of office equipment and experienced staff-support? CEO SUITE takes care of all the details involved in setting up an office while you focus on your core business.
Flexibility can be enjoyed not only in terms of office space — ranging from space for just one person to office space for a large organization — but also in terms of leasing period, which may range from one hour, for example, to an unlimited length of time.
Besides renting office space, CEO SUITE also provides other services in the shortest time possible. When a bomb exploded outside the Australian Embassy in Jakarta on Sept. 9, 2004, for example, Mee Kim received telephone calls from panicked executives in offices around the embassy building. Overnight, Mee Kim provided space for them and made available telephone connections and computers for Freeport McMoRan mining company and three oil companies in its business-center offices a few blocks away from the bomb explosion site. “The next day they moved to the new locations,” she said.
CEO SUITE is quick to provide services to its clients, both companies and individuals. CEO SUITE receives mixed requests from its clients, ranging from just a virtual office, fully equipped offices, boardrooms to video conferencing. The company provides not only standard office services but also services in consultancy, recruitment, accountancy, legal, concierge services, project management, equipment rentals and even disaster recovery.
Since starting her business in 1997, Mee Kim has learned that businesspeople in every country require something different and this is just what CEO strives to give to its clients. “Some places offer a few extras like training room facilities and airport pick-up, but we’re different. Our knowledge of the Asian business environment provides a solid foundation for your business,” said Mee Kim.
The characteristics of the services that CEO SUITE offers are that they are cost-efficient, practical and flexible. It offers not only ready-to-use standard office facilities but also back offices, ranging from personalized bilingual phone answering and instant call forwarding, copy-writing and editing as well as executive secretarial services and translations. CEO SUITE is able to offer many more services to meet its clients’ needs.
Due to its extensive experience, CEO SUITE has become a top choice for companies wishing to open branch offices, sales offices or companies wanting to start a new business.
“We needed to set up an office in a very short time frame, and CEO has enabled us to move in and have our phone lines and Internet, etc. working — all within a short time of signing the lease. Besides office space, CEO’s facilities such as their meeting rooms have created a good atmosphere for us and our guests. The staff is professional, and is always willing to help and assist in matters ranging from translation to solving problems in IT,” said John N. Grant, General Manager, Asia Petroleum, commenting on CEO SUITE’s services.
Today, apart from its offices in strategic locations in Jakarta (the Jakarta Stock Exchange and Wisma GKBI), CEO has branch offices in four other cities: Menara Maxis (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), Singapore Land Tower (Singapore), Hong Kong New World Tower (Shanghai, China) and Twin Towers (Beijing, China).
CEO SUITE serves over 700 clients in the region, 90 percent of which are MNCs like ABN Amro, Dell, BMC Software, Coca Cola, Exxon Mobil, etc.
This year, they will open branches in Manila, Bangkok and Seoul. Ho Chi Minh City, Hong Kong and a third center in Jakarta will follow in 2008.
