The Virtual Office…and How It Can Benefit YOUR Business

Summer – it’s a season that we beckon with heightened anticipation and hopes that we will be able to get away to somewhere exotic and sunny. The truth is, if you are a start-up CEO, it is usually difficult to get any time off. And in the grand scheme of things, starting out, hiring a dedicated receptionist, renting a premises etc can prove too costly. A virtual office can be an ideal solution while your business is growing and you are developing your brand. Virtual offices and assistants have certainly gained global popularity over the last number of years and Gray Office Park’s virtual office services are no exception. So how exactly can our Virtual Office Service help you?


  1. Looks are everything….to a degree

When it comes to the image you want your business to have, where it is located can be a huge factor and can affect the opinion potential clients have of your business. Having a city centre address immediately presents you as a professional and influential organisation. You can also have the added advantage of our receptionist team receiving and handling your mail as per your requirements. You can then either collect your post at a time convenient to you or we will gladly forward your post to you. It’s one less thing for you to worry about which is always a good thing!


2. Seeing into the future.

Where so many new businesses rise and fall is in whether or not they have adequately tested the market to see if their business is a viable concern with the potential to grow year on year. Whilst you may plan to have a physical office in the course of time, a virtual office gives you the advantage of being able to assess customer reactions and market opportunities before you commit to having a physical office. It may even be the case that you don’t need a physical premises and a virtual office is the perfect fit for your company.


  1. The numbers game

It is widely accepted and agreed that more often than not, having a mobile number as your main business contact does not serve to enhance your business’ professional image. Gray Office Park, in partnership with sister company Avita Communications, can offer clients a dedicated number based in any Irish Geographical area depending on whether you want to create a more local presence or a national presence with a Dublin or 1890 number for example. Once we have allocated your number, there are several ways in which it can be managed i.e. calls come to our reception, we take the call and send the critical details of the message are sent to you by email or we can transfer the calls to a designated number etc. Having a landline in a specific region instantly makes your business appear more professional and also potentially means that, should you wish to have your calls answered by our team, you never miss an important call again.
