So you’ve done it: you started your own business. You’ve taken the leap. The next steps can be as exciting as they are terrifying but now that your organization has taken off, it and you will need to adapt on the fly. The name of the game is efficiency and that means spending money on the things you need and saving on the things you don’t. Young companies, in their eagerness to get to work, too often fall into traditional models of doing business which can trap capital, stifle growth and leave employees ill-equipped to do their job.
Not every phone answering service is created equal, and while you might find the time savings and the professional feel of live reception appealing, often times a lack of customization and personal attention can be its downfall. With AdvantEdge, your services are always customizable, our staff truly gets to know your company, and for most of our plans, these services are already included! Here are some reasons to look into an answering service for your company, and what about our service sets us apart.
While we have seemingly endless apps and websites available to use as a resource for just about anything, with so many resources at our disposal, a task like finding office space can quickly become quite daunting. Because physical office space is such a large expense, educating yourself as much as possible and starting early are vitally important. Not only do you need to determine the needs of your business at present, but you also have to consider its future. AdvantEdge can help assist along the way and ensure you make the best decision for both your company and your employees.
When it comes to determining the office space needs of your business, it’s most important to stay realistic. Try not to over- or underestimate - your business’s future capacity by allowing yourself enough time to evaluate the needs of your employees, your future business plans, and by doing your research thoroughly. Once you’ve nailed down the roadmap of your business plan, a good place to turn to amidst your search are the tried and true resource of real estate brokers. While you can search for space on any site or app, brokers understand the current conditions of the real estate market for your city and can help you make better informed choices about a building or market than you would be able to on your own. This is particularly helpful if you’re trying to set up an office in an area that you may be unfamiliar with. Online reviews and social media, when mixed in with expert opinions from your broker, are also good resources for getting the feel of a space. These tools can provide insight into the quality of the customer service you would receive, building amenities, and current tenant satisfaction.
The adage “location, location, location” may be overdone, but deciding where to work is as much about personality and feel as it is nuts and bolts. All of our centers offer amazing professional space and services in high quality locations, but there are still a few things that set each of them apart. Below we highlight each of our centers and outline their benefits beyond the space itself:
Considering how much time you spend in the office each week, you deserve an aesthetically appealing space that inspires productivity, efficiency, and even peace of mind. And while personal touches are vital, the space should also do its best to reflect a company culture as well as your own taste. More than ever before, how your office looks carries increased importance for clients and coworkers alike, but thankfully there are a growing number of resources to help you hone the perfect workspace image.
Increase your productivity with the office efficiency and on demand administrative assistance provided by shared workspaces. From mail services, to IT support, phone reception services and more, shared workspaces are your company’s one stop shop for all the business support you need available anytime.
When it comes to choosing a space perfect for your company’s immediate and future needs, a shared office space is an optimal choice. Not only are serviced workspaces convenient for small companies and help entrepreneurs build relationships with a variety of other businesses, but shared offices also offer ecofriendly environments and amenities that reduce your carbon footprint.
Move Over Google Voice: Live Reception Services Ensure Your Clients Calls are Handled Professionally
When operating any kind of business, customer satisfaction and personal attention is always a top priority. However, with the increased usage of answering services such as Google Voice and other automated response systems, personal attention may take a backseat over efficiency. This is not the case here at AdvantEdge Business Centers; our on-site staff provides customized phone answering services according to your specifications so that no caller is left behind.
Finding the right office space for your business is hard, and there are many details to consider before you make a final office space decision. The search and planning can start to become a major headache as you confront logistical questions, such as where to get your furniture and office equipment, how to set up your own wireless internet network, and who to turn to when you need the air conditioning or plumbing fixed. This is where AdvantEdge comes in- we provide all of the benefits of leasing your own office space while taking care of all of the logistical concerns ourselves, so you won’t have to worry about them.
Is your business thinking about adding a few new employees? Do you have the space on-hand to help them feel settled and welcomed in a new office environment? With AdvantEdge Business Centers there is no need to worry about expanding to accommodate more employees! We work with you to remain flexible so that we can provide top notch, modern workspaces for your business.
