Atlanta Virtual Offices Encourage Telework From Peachtree

It’s official. Atlanta is the friendliest city for telework.

Information workers in Atlanta work remotely five days per month, one more than the national average, according to a recent Microsoft survey. They also report the highest support levels from colleagues and the highest use of secure internal social networking tools to collaborate with customers. Conversely, they also conduct business while driving more than workers in any other city.

Microsoft reports that more than 4,500 U.S. information workers, more than half said their companies have a formal telework policy. The ongoing rise of telework reflects the new realities of today’s mobile information age, said Ron Markezich, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s U.S. Enterprise and Partner Group.

“Telework is no longer a company perk for employees but a business imperative,” he says. “Ten years ago, it was seen more as an employee benefit. Today, businesses around the world are seeing telework as a necessity.”

Markezich calls it “work without walls” and says it paves the way for greater productivity, customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction.

According to the survey, the number one reason given for telework is to avoid transportation challenges. Striking a better balance between work and home priorities came in second, followed by the need to complete unfinished work.

With all this in mind—and given Atlanta is the friendliest city for telecommuting—it’s no surprise that Davinci Virtual Office Solutions has so many virtual office locations in Atlanta. Davinci has 11 virtual offices in Atlanta, to be exact.

If you need a virtual office in Downtown Atlanta or Midtown Atlanta, Davinci has several options Peachtree Street. If you want to be closer to the highway, Davinci has locations near Interstate North Parkway. No matter which virtual office in Atlanta you choose, you are assured a prestigious mailing address, and plenty of administrative support. You can also visit these virtual office sites to use the business support center, pick up or drop off packages for clients, use a conference room or day office and other services.

Executive Suite Success Features Martin Senn

Executive Suite Success magazine is featuring a bylined article from Davinci Virtual COO Martin Senn. Executive Suite Success is a resource guide for office business center owners and operators. The magazine published its third-ever issue this month.

Senn’s article is entitled, “The New Virtual Office Market: Trends, Stats, and Needs.” In it, he discusses how virtual offices are ideal for many 21st century companies because they offer cost-savings, as well as flexibility and increased productivity. Senn didn’t just offer his opinion, though. He pointed to the 2008 OBCAI financial study, which showed virtual office revenues are about 7 percent of total revenues for highly profitable business centers. That number will probably rise in when the 2010 study is published.

“At some centers, virtual revenues even exceeded 10% of overall revenues without creating much additional overhead for the operation,” Senn wrote. “The study also showed a 7% increase in virtual revenues in 2008 compared to 2007 and identified virtual office revenues as one of the main factors that differentiate a high profit OBC (average 34% profit margin) from a middle profit OBC (average 11% profit margin). So statistically speaking, every OBC operator should embrace the virtual office business—yesterday!”

In his article, Senn also outlined a number of work trends and corresponded them to client needs. For example, one virtual work trend is to offer more flexible work schedules. The business center client need, in this case, is extended hours accessibility to facilities and communications. Another virtual work trend is heavy use of Internet, e-mail and chat. The business center client need in this instance is secure, wireless Internet access.

“Based on the rapid adoption rate of this new work trend, almost every business center operator should be able to attract a solid base of virtual office clients within their local market,” Senn wrote. “However, there are some approaches that may position a center location to grab market share quicker and at a lower cost.”

Senn shared plenty more wisdom in his Executive Suite Success magazine column. And his article was in good company. In the September 2010 issue, you’ll also find articles from Buddy Shaw, president and CEO of Shaw & Associates and Karen Condi, executive director of Alliance Office Strategies.

An out-of-town company needed an office in Garden City for a meeting and is renting one from us. This is business and exposure that I would not have had without my affiliation with Davinci. And, a prospective client was thrilled that she could use us in Garden City, New York, while her partner in Cincinnati could use an affiliated facility out there.”
