As your business grows and you want to move into new markets, you need to evaluate and consider the risks with opening up new locations in various areas, such as Toronto. Whether you have a business in the United States, United Kingdom, or other foreign country or elsewhere in Canada, expanding operations into Toronto and Ontario has certain risks. One way to lower the risks of moving into new markets is by setting up and establishing a virtual office in Toronto.
Virtual offices have a significantly lower initial investment cost when compared to permanent physical workspace. If things do not work out as planned or the expansion is taking longer than anticipated, you are not locked into a long term lease for a certain square footage, nor are you forced to purchase equipment and other items needed to set up an actual physical office in Toronto. For a fraction of the cost it takes to open a new office in Toronto, you can have a virtual office instead. Plus, it is much easier and faster to open your new office location in downtown Toronto.
What Is a Toronto Virtual Office?
A virtual office is where you pay a monthly fee to secure a high profile business address in downtown Toronto. In addition, you have access to several different services, depending upon your needs and requirements. You are free to customize various space and technology features, options, and solutions and make changes as your business needs evolve.
One type of virtual office solution is a mail only solution, which includes a downtown Toronto business address. This address can be used on your business cards, as well as to receive mail. The virtual office provider will handle, store, and forward your mail according to your specifications. Additionally, you are provided with an exterior image of the building in high resolution that you can use on your website. This is just one type of virtual office option available in Toronto.
Another type of virtual office solution is where you have your own virtual receptionist. With this solution, you get an actual working Toronto phone number for people to call, along with call routing and extensions for a maximum of ten external numbers, as well as automated receptionist and professional administrative support. In addition, the phone line can be configured so that is simultaneously rings at the same time on up to ten external numbers.
With this virtual office solution, when a potential client calls, they dial your Toronto phone number. The phone call is then routed to any, or all, of the external numbers you have configured for external call routing. For instance, you could have calls routed from by your Toronto virtual receptionist to your office in New York City, or anywhere else around the globe.
You even have the option to combine both mail and virtual receptionist solutions into a complete virtual office solution. With this solution you receive all of the features and options available with the virtual mail solution and virtual receptionist solution, including a downtown Toronto business mailing address, mail handling, storage, and forwarding, virtual receptionist, Toronto telephone number, and more.
All virtual office solutions offer discounts on bulk meeting spaces in the same building as your virtual office mailing address. This way, if you need to meet with clients in person in Toronto, you can actually invite them to physical location.
