Experts Claim Number of Virtual Offices will Grow in Future, W1 Office Responds Monday 1 June 2015 PDF Print “The business world has become extremely fast paced, and organisations need to be able to react quickly to survive,” The reaction follows new claims from a leading communications expert, who believes that the popularity of virtual offices will only continue to grow in the future. A spokesperson from W1 Office provides a statement. A leading communications expert predicts that virtual offices will continue to grow in popularity, thanks to the advancement of technology that makes the solution much more accessible to people up and down the country. Tim Meredith, from Daisy Group, says that as cloud-based services and mobile devices develop, there is no longer a need to sit at a permanent desk. This technology will cause the UK’s office property sector, worth approximately £2billion a year to the economy, to dramatically change over the coming decades. “The business world has become extremely fast paced, and organisations need to be able to react quickly to survive,” claimed Mr Meredith. “Office space, on the other hand, requires long-term financial commitment and maximum occupancy, otherwise it becomes a huge financial strain. The nine to give shift is dying as more businesses allow their employees to work flexibly, which means workers no longer need to be desk bound, and there is less need for fixed office space.” The dawn on superfast broadband and the mass availability of affordable tools, such as video conferencing software, internal social networks and more, have allowed businesses build a virtual team from all over the country. These teams can still collaborate with colleagues, but not having to travel into an office every day makes their working day much more flexible. “The number of UK home workers has increased by 45 per cent since the start of the millennium, and I anticipate this trend to continue,” he added. “By 2035, businesses will be following the lead of freelancers and start-ups by renting fully equipped office space or portable workstations as and when they need them.” W1 Office, a company that provides virtual office solutions to businesses up and down the country, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “It’s no secret that virtual offices are increasing in popularity, and that’s because of how cost effective and convenient they can be. “If you’re a business that is looking to cut costs but still maintain productivity then a virtual office could be just the answer. The flexibility of working from home can give you and your company a cost effective solution to set you up for the future.” W1 Office endeavours to provide affordable virtual office solutions to businesses, start-ups and homeworkers across the globe. Their virtual office services allow individuals and companies to use business credentials in London, enabling their organisations to grow.
