The typical Office Business Center (OBC) provides a professionally structured, total business and support services environment for the company or individual entrepreneur. Arrangements normally combine a package of office accommodations, amenities and services for one reasonable monthly fee. Suite clients share a welcoming reception area, professionally appointed conference rooms, kitchen, and other common areas. An array of leading edge business support services are available to clients on an as needed basis.
Most centers can accommodate groups of 10 to 12 individuals within a center framework, and on occasion can accommodate larger groups up to 25 or even 50, depending on their configuration. Many more centers are being identified as a valuable resource for “business continuity” programs, or disaster recovery.
Companies choose an office business center for a variety of reasons which include:
- The elimination of most up-front capital expenditures
- Agreements that are easy to review and understand
- An ideal environment for smaller space requirements
- The availability of flexible terms from a few weeks to a year or more
Whether for an entrepreneur starting a new business, or a branch manager of a Fortune 500 company, the cost benefits and flexibility that an OBC provides have made it the obvious choice for workplace solutions.
