Traditional vs. Virtual Offices: A Comparison

The traditional office set-up with corridors lined with cubicles and stuffy meeting rooms is quickly becoming a thing of the past for many businesses. More and more start-ups are realizing they can save significant money on overhead expenses by ditching the traditional office space and instead going virtual. Not only does this save money, but it also provides more flexibility for employees, which can translate to more productivity.

This begs the question, “Is the office still necessary for a startup?” Read on to find out.

Centralized Office and Its Benefits

A centralized office does provide some benefits. For one, having a permanent, local address gives the business legitimacy, allowing the core leaders to earn trust from their clients. Having an official, physical location to conduct client meetings and team meetings with employees is also convenient.

Virtual Office and Its Benefits

A virtual office space offers many of the same advantages of a traditional office space, but without the accompanying operational costs. It is perfect for startups with limited capital.

A virtual office provides startups with a street address, local phone number and even a receptionist to handle incoming calls. Such a setup can be rented by the hour or by the day, making it easy to conduct meetings and other business-related activity without the financial hassle.
