With more entrepreneurs in Singapore setting up small offices, or running their businesses from home, there is a growing need for non-traditional office operations and solutions.
Some people just need a quiet place to work for an hour. Some require a temporary location from which to start up a business. Others may need a fully equipped boardroom to hold one important meeting in person or through video conferencing.
The key is flexibility. Various options must be available to please all types of businesses ranging from small to medium-sized and even temporary emergency offices.
Flexible office solutions
One example of a company that provides flexible office solutions is CEO SUITE, which provides “instant office solutions” that enable budding businesses to set up an office in minutes.
They also offer tailored office space solutions, where offices can be rented on a per-need basis, whether it is on an hourly basis or daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.
Even if you are not physically in Singapore, you can run your business remotely using their virtual office facility. This virtual office service means that all your mail will be received on your behalf and forwarded to you wherever you are in the world through advanced telecommunications software. Alternatively, messages can be sent via SMS, e-mail, or voicemail.
With more than 50 years’ experience in the serviced office business, CEO SUITE can offer a platform from which companies can be connected from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Shanghai and some 150 centres worldwide.
Their serviced offices can accommodate between one to 50 people, and include a fully serviced kitchen, Cyber-Lounge, 24-hour CCTV monitoring and underground car-parking, depending on the specific business needs.
Hi-tech support is also available. An advanced telecommunications system allows you to receive calls and send messages from any location to a Unified Messaging System, which enables clients to retrieve faxes or voice mail messages on-line.
Furthermore, all clients have immediate access to a professional, multi-lingual support team and the use of colour laser printers, scanners, high-speed photocopy machines, cable network infrastructure, ISDN and LAN and video teleconferencing.
