Virtual Office Case Study - design agency
Paul & Terry run a successful design agency from a small office on the outskirts of Nottingham. They use trusted freelancers to support their work and are now confident of taking on larger clients in London. They can’t yet afford the high costs of renting a real office there though so turned to GBoffices to provision a single Teletracker number to add to their web site and email campaigns.
When they receive calls, they reveal their true location and invite clients to meet with them in London the next day to introduce themselves properly. They always get the appointment and now provide a very high level of service across London, at non-London prices.
Virtual Office Case Study – distribution
Gerard distributes children’s playground equipment across the South East and wanted a Yorkshire base where his busy sales reps would be welcomed, could access the internet and have occasional meetings. There is no requirement for them to take a full-time office so they use a Bradford mailing address (with a free 01274 Teletracker number), a 01274 fax number and books a small meeting room twice a month. Occasionally his reps attend local networking events too to build local contacts and referrals.
Virtual Office Case Study – event management
Julie rose through the ranks of the banking sector and decided to “do the kid thing” and is now a proud mum of two toddlers. She eventually craved to create her own business and put her organisational skills to good use for herself. Her event management business specialises in the financial services sector and works regionally with some of the major brands. Her key clients know she works mostly from home but she prefers to a professional business centre mailing address (and free Teletracker number) to separate her home from work.
She uses different local numbers on her promotional materials too for some consumer-facing events so she can measure the effectiveness of that particular promotion as well as be able to route callers seamlessly to the GBoffices team when she’s out and about.
Virtual Office Case Study – pest control
Michael and Jennifer have a busy office in Wandsworth and provide pest control services mostly to nursing homes and public sector bodies like schools and councils, etc. To expand their operation across London and gain other local contracts, they now operate 2 GBoffices mailing addresses with London Teletracker numbers. They recently helped 2 other people start their own businesses within their brand and so sub-contract to them maintaining customer confidence in them.
They are now developing a wider franchise offering based on their early learning and success. They handle all calls centrally and forward some enquiries direct to their operators in the area. They enjoy all the call data graphing so they can easily see how they are operating to safely grow the business in full control.
Virtual Office Case Study – recruitment
Sue runs a sales recruitment business in Liverpool and has a team of 5 sales execs in the office and several execs on the road. Using local Teletracker numbers, she now trades in Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow on a regular basis. Her flyers are tailored to each city with the local number printed clearly. Once an appointment is made, she immediately schedules a confirmation text message to the customer the day before the appointment is due to take place. This is done in seconds direct from her local Teletracker number from within the control panel. She is in full control of all the activities of her team and customers appreciate the gentle reminder too.
