There are some common misconceptions about Serviced Offices,
so we thought we would debunk some of these and help you in your search for your own perfect office space. 

Here at Obsidian we like to think we know a thing or two about Serviced Offices so here’s our expert word on the Office conversation.

1.     Only Small business/Start-ups use Serviced Offices

Many people think that only smaller sized companies use Serviced Offices.  This couldn’t be further from the truth. A Serviced Office is a great solution for office space for companies of all sizes. They allow for an office that can scale to size with your business so you’re only paying for the space that you need.  Here at Obsidian we have a wide array of clients, from small start up companies all the way to Industry leaders.

2.     A Serviced Office is only a short-term option.

A Serviced Office is a great way to accommodate all the needs for your business, they can act as a regional office for large organisations or as a one-man office or co-working space for individuals who want to transition from working at home.  Other less known problems that a Serviced Office can solve are the temporary relocation of a business while they move offices or as a disaster recovery site.  The reality is that a Serviced Office can fulfill your office needs, short or long term. A Serviced Office is more than just an office it is a support system and a place for businesses to come together and collaborate.

3. Serviced Offices aren’t cost effective compared to other alternatives.

A Serviced Office is often actually cheaper than other alternatives. There are no hidden costs, everything is laid out in front of you when you sign up. You don’t need to worry about the upkeep of the building or the utilities as they will all be covered by the Serviced Office provider.  Shorter terms also mean if anything changes in your business you are not tied into a lengthy lease.  Leasing an office can be a viable solution however, this does not allow you to have the same level of flexibility that a Serviced Office provides; for more information on the leasing an office check out our other post. Serviced Offices also come with a heap of other benefits such as post handling, telephone answering as well as a trusted Business Address for you to use.

So, there we have it, 3 Serviced Office myths debunked.  Hopefully you will agree that Serviced Offices are a great way to grow your business and could be exactly what your business needs.
