1. What is a Virtual Office?

Technically speaking, it is a form of subcontracting and subleasing. Which means that you can rent out a  physical space such as a dedicated desk, or a group of offices, while sharing one reception area, pantry, and other facilities. MyOffice also has an excellent team with technological support that keeps you connected to the office wherever you are, putting the virtual in virtual office!

If you check our website, you can build your own virtual office by choosing specific facilities and services you need. Think of it as a pizza- pick a base, must have toppings, and maybe throw a few more add-ons, just in case!

 

5. How is MyOffice mobile-friendly by always connecting us to the office even if we are not there?

MyOffice combines both physical space and virtual services and technologies. Using our virtual services and our very own online platform (Personal Portal), you can remain connected to the office, get continuos updates, and even interact and give special instructions, all through our platform!

 

6. Co-working space vs. MyOffice- what's the difference?

A co-working space is a style of work that involves different start-ups working together in a shared environment, usually forming a collaborative community. There is no virtual office support for the different companies. Instead, the entrepreneurs present proactively help each other, whether it is taking a phone call for another or prepping the coffee for everyone. In addition, each co-working caters to specific industries, such as tech start-ups or social enterprises. Added services may also include events and mentorship. MyOffice on the other hand focuses on the nitty gritty details every business in various industries need when starting, such as business registration, office support solutions, private and shared spaces, accounting, etc. In addition, MyOffice is mobile friendly, since members of MyOffice don't have to be physically present in the office to feel the benefits. Our front and back office services keep entrepreneurs connected to the office and help the business continue to run wherever they may be!

 

7. What is a DIY Work Space?

A DIY Work Space is an open area that allows you to create and operate your own office based on your personal preference. The space has foldable walls so you can easily adjust the size of the office and you are free to re-arrange the layout of the tables. Various glass boards are located all over the area to encourage free-thinking, and a DIY station and trolley containing all necessary equipment such as a projector, scanner, fax machine, and desktop computer can be found, giving you complete access to office tools anytime. Finally, a mini-finess corner can also be found in the space, just in case you need to get the entrepreneurial juices flowing.
