Virtual Offices Provide Small Businesses with an Alternative


Memphis, TN (August 16, 2007) – Running a business out of your home may be a smart and cost-effective way to run a startup or small business, but what do you do when a client wants to meet with you?

For many small businesses, the answer may lie in a popular new alternative called the “virtual office”. The virtual office concept provides businesses with a variety of administrative support options, as well as physical office space, if needed. Overhead costs and other operating expenses are a major concern for most small businesses. Many would like to achieve the look and feel of a professional office, but lack the substantial financial resources often necessary to rent and run a fully-staffed office space. Virtual offices can assist in projecting a more successful image for the business without the cost of renting office space or hiring administrative personnel.

The virtual office encompasses a bundle of services such as a full-service office staff that devotes a minimum of 40 hours per week to answering and forwarding calls as well as accepting deliveries on your behalf; a business street address; and when needed, the use of office space and a conference room.

In the past few years, several companies providing the convenience of virtual offices have cropped up across the U.S. Services and prices vary and can range from as little as $75 to as much as $1000 or more a month, depending on the services chosen. One such virtual office provider is Ofiplex ( which provides low-cost virtual office and executive suite packages for startups and small businesses in Memphis, Tennessee.

The idea of virtual offices continues to gain momentum as the number of start ups and small businesses grows. With advances in wireless communication and the wide-spread use of the Internet, more and more people are taking the plunge and starting their own business. John Vanhara, President of Ofiplex believes virtual offices fill an important and specific demand. He says, “Companies like ours are able to provide a cost-effective and flexible alternative to compliment any business. We offer a business an a la carte menu of services, if you will. Businesses can choose from a variety of services and select those that best suit their needs. In our case, we can even provide assistance with incorporating a business or in obtaining the appropriate business licenses.”
