Usually companies who opt for serviced office are:
1. New start ups
2. Existing companies who are in service industry (consulting services etc)
3. Big or established companies who need ad-hoc space for short term projects (and as such short term office rental)
4. Companies who are transiting (moving from one office to another) and need short term transition office
When it comes to renting a serviced office in Singapore, typically for slightly over $1000/month (Singapore dollars), you can get a small cozy office housing 1 to 3 person (in some non-CBD areas you can house up to 4 or more).
The services that you can expect (we cannot guarantee it here as it depends on the different service provider) are:
1. Shared meeting room space.
Usually this comes in the form of a certain number of meeting room hours per month. Beyond this allocated quota, you will usually have to pay (a preferred rate normally) on a per use or per hour basis. Check with your serviced office provider on this
2. Shared receptionist space
This is a pretty common feature for most established serviced office providers. Having a shared receptionist front provides your company with a more professional image. As a small company, your staff or yourself might be out of office most of the time and having a shared receptionist space keeps your office functioning all the time with someone professional to take messages
3. Call Answering Services
Having someone to take your customers’ incoming calls and route them to the various in charges in your company projects a professional image. And if you are out of town for business trips (or holiday), having someone to take messages too is a great help
4. Concierge Services
Sending mails, checking the mailboxes, arranging for courier take up precious time. And the administrative function is key to your company’s success. After all, you cannot be handling all the small issues personally. By outsourcing the non-core functions out, you get to focus more on your business. Most established serviced office providers provide concierge services, check with them for details
