The web and advanced phone service have transformed the way we do business. And now, businesses of all sizes can use the Internet as a virtual office, improving productivity across many levels. Here are key benefits to virtually "hanging your shingle" with a virtual office.

Eliminate rent costs
With a virtual office, the high cost of office rental space is thing of the past. Even better, you might be eligible for significant tax breaks when you use your home as a "home base."

Reduce Transportation Costs
With gas prices STILL on the rise, a virtual office makes great sense for no better reason than you won't have to fill up at the pump as much to get to work.

Reduce Transportation Time
Think about how much time you spend in traffic, driving to and from work every day. Now imagine that same time spent building your business in new and imaginative ways. More sales calls, more research, more time to make money!

Expand the employee pool
You've found a sales rep who you'd love to hire, but he is in Chicago and you are in Los Angeles. With a virtual office you can seamlessly make remote players a part of the team with web conferencing tools. Intranets, solid phone set ups and other link ups found in your virtual office make it easy!

Work with a professional
Find an expert who knows all the ins and outs of building a virtual office. They can help you set up reliable phone service, build powerful but affordable networks and just make sure everything you need is 100% connected.

Step forward into the 21st century with a virtual office - and step away from the traditional brick and mortar office (with its traffic jams and long commutes) forever! Read our web conferencing buyer guide if you are looking for more information on how to work from a virtual office.
