Virtual offices provide global footprints
By Zhang Qian

A handpicked CBD location, professional support staff, world class IT and flexible working environment are keys to creating a successful business.

Servcorp is an innovator in the serviced and virtual office industry and has been providing companies large and small with flexible, cost-effective business solutions globally for more than 30 years. Their virtual office solutions are at the forefront and Shanghai Daily reporter caught up with Senior Manager Michaela Julian to get more of an insight.

"In business, image is key," Julian says. "A Servcorp Virtual Office gives clients access to the presence, facilities and services of a serviced office, while they work from home or another location. A dedicated receptionist, premium CBD address, local phone number and meeting room access mean a company will have a totally professional image."

Servcorp also focuses onits IT, telecommunications and cloud-based technologies.

"Servcorp has invested more than US$50 million into our IT and telecoms infrastructure. Our clients can use our online client portal Servcorp Online to book everything in real-time. Anything from meeting rooms, day suites and global business lounge space. They can even check their invoice and change the way that their phones are answered. It can all be done without having to pick up the phone. It's a really powerful tool and we are the only company that provides this capability," says Julian.

Leveraging from others' experience is vital when entering any new market, as Julian says.

"We want companies to let us worry about the small problems, so they can focus on growing their business. We have worked with hundreds of companies over the years and have a lot of experience dealing with the kind of problems they face, so we can point out issues before they arise. Setting up in a new location can be a daunting but rewarding experience. We help companies reap the rewards. I've seen so many companies grow with us until they are big enough to buy their own office space and develop further. It's really fulfilling to watch a business go from strength to strength."

Servcorp has branches in more than 130 locations around the world and aims to remain at the cutting edge of the virtual office industry for many years to come. It has offices in Kerry Center, Jing'an District; Citigroup Tower, Pudong New Area, and Somekh Building on the Bund. For more details call 400-656-0166 or e-mail offices@servcorp.com.cn.
