As Cebu enters another year of phenomenal growth, more and more businesses are opening here, either as startups or branches from head offices elsewhere in the Philippines or other countries. Many of these offices often come to our realty telling us their need to set up quickly and start operations promptly with as minimal capital as possible.
Their demands seem so impossible. Is it really? Not at all. There are, in fact, companies specializing mainly to serve this demanding market in a growing city like Cebu. One such company is Regus, an international office sharing company operating in several countries worldwide. Here are the reasons why their clients have opted for office sharing which few considered before.
1. Get all the services you want
Office sharing companies have the basic furniture, facilities and services that one would need in a regular office, such as, office furniture, Internet, phone connection, receptionist, a business address in a posh location, printing services, and even food and coffee and more.
2. Pay for only the services that you need
You don’t need all of these facilities and services? You have the option to choose only those you need and pay only for them. You may even opt simply to use their mailing address and not hold a physical office there.
3. Get your office to hit the ground running
With these complete facilities and services ready, you are sure to hit the ground running even on the first day of your operations in your new shared office unit.
4. Spread capital costs
Without having to buy dedicated Internet connections and furniture, and without the need for fitting out and construction, you don’t really need to buy any of these needs upfront. It is just like amortizing your capital or start up cost on a monthly basis.
5. None to one hundred staff
You actually don’t even need to have your own paid staff if all you need is a secretary to answer incoming calls. You have that option, yet you can scale up quickly or scale down, for that matter, as you wish. As long as there are still vacancies, you can add as many staff as you want.
6. Get professional support
From receptionists, IT professionals, the company manager, and even the maintenance staff, you are assured of world class support.
7. State of the art equipment
Fast dedicated internet, video conferencing, centralized air con, reliable printer, dedicated server, and other equipment – these are just a few of the state of the art equipment you will have access to in companies like Regus.
8. Great location with a great view
Regus, in particular, is in the heart of one of the best business districts in Cebu (as with other big office sharing companies), the Cebu Business Park and is located right beside Ayala mall. Located in one of the higher floors, it has a great view of Cebu to help you and your staff relax during coffee breaks.
9. Make a good impression on your clients
With all of these abovementioned points, you not only are able to operate very promptly, but are sure to make a good impression on your clients. After all, one’s office environment does reflect on one’s company.
