Virtual Offices in South Africa: Where’s Best for Your Business?
Which of these locations would you like your business to be based in? Perhaps all three? Is your firm part of the growing number of small companies and home businesses that are seeking greater support and a better image?
Virtual offices allow businesses to project an impressive corporate image to customers, without the expense of leasing professional workspace, or hiring their own administrative staff.
Deeren Dulai, Dell Account Executive (South Africa) sees clear benefits from having a virtual office:
“Using a Regus virtual office gives me a prestigious, Durban business address, without the inconvenience of setting up an office there. I can work on the move, wherever I need to be, or take the day off, secure that someone will answer the phone and take mail deliveries.”
As the economy in South Africa recovers, small businesses are acutely aware of the need to control spending. Virtual offices offer home businesses, start-ups and companies entering the South African market the benefits of a staffed office –- e.g. a professional receptionist to answer the phone –- without the expense, risk and management time of setting up a physical presence.
Regus offers a range of virtual office services, including:
Well that’s the benefit of a Regus Virtual Office: All the amenities of a full-time office, without the expense of one.
People now say: “Oh! I know where you work.” All thanks to Regus’ prestigious business locations and my private business line, answered by a professional receptionist.
And when I’m traveling, in South Africa or elsewhere, as a Virtual Office customer I can access Regus’ 1100+ business lounges in 88 countries around the world.
With conference rooms and private offices for hire and corporate discounts on leading brands’ business services, a Regus Virtual Office gives me more than just a professional address … and all while I carry on working day-to-day, from home. Just where I like it.

Report: India, Mexico, Spain Have the Most Businesses Profiting Through Social Media
A new survey [pdf] commissioned by workplace solutions provider Regus revealed that 40% of businesses globally have successfully leveraged social media tools for business development. For US companies, that figure is 35%, below the level of many nations with significantly smaller overall economies and placing it 9th overall.
The Regus survey asked business leaders not only whether they had achieved any customer wins using social networking, but also whether they believed the channel was effective enough to be awarded its own portion of marketing budget. Proving the faith businesses have in the social networking medium is seen in the revelation that more than a quarter of businesses worldwide (27%) have set aside a proportion of marketing budget specifically devoted to social networking activities.
The business advantages that flexibility of working hours or location can afford are multi-faceted and range from savings in real estate leasing, lighting and heating, to improvements in staff motivation, retention and productivity.
In March, Regus published a report compiling and analyzing the views of 17,000 business respondents in 80 countries, conducted earlier in 2011. The report, Flexible Working Goes Global, can be read in full below or by clicking the link.
