Why Business Owners and Professionals Need Access to Multiple Office Locations

Canadian entrepreneurs and professionals who do business throughout the country can benefit from having multiple office locations. Working from multiple locations doesn’t mean you need to commit to several expensive and restrictive office leases, either. When you have a virtual office membership from a provider with a nationwide network, you’ll have access to locations throughout the country.

That’s how things work here at Intelligent Office — if you're a member at one IO location, you're a member at every location. Membership even includes access to office spaces in the United States.

Whether you join us at IO or partner with another virtual office provider, working from multiple office locations in Canada and beyond can give your professional life a boost. Here’s how you can take advantage of an expansive virtual office network.

Expand your business’s footprint

For businesses undergoing growth, expanding your service area might be the logical next step. Virtual offices make it easy to get established in a new area, with services like:

Work while you travel

If you travel throughout the provinces regularly, take advantage of a virtual office network. These networks are ideal for businesses and/or professionals who operate on a national or provincewide scale.

Whether you’re working from Alberta or British Columbia or Ontario, you know a fully functioning office is waiting. If you’re taking a long weekend or vacation to another province or U.S. state, you can even fly out earlier, knowing you can get work done before your trip begins. Beating the weekend rush at the airport has never been easier or more productive.

Multiple office locations simplify prospecting

When you’re trying to drum up more business or acquire new clients, having access to multiple offices makes it easy to set up meetings, no matter where the client lives.

As an example, consider a salesperson who needs to travel from Vancouver to Toronto to meet with a potential new account. They’ll have three locations to choose from in the city alone.

Enhance your business’s or startup’s image

New and developing businesses can benefit from an image that projects professionalism, and competence. Many virtual office providers with multiple locations are equipped with the exact tools and services you need to create that image.

Professional staff who can assist with administrative needs, executive offices, fully equipped conference rooms that can be rented, and an address in a respected location all provide an immediate boost to your credibility.

If you opt into virtual address services, you can even work on expanding nationally or internationally. With this service, you can proudly display an international presence on your website and business cards. Imagine being able to say you operate in Toronto, Vancouver, New York, and San Francisco!
