Entrepreneur Kavita Oberoi has launched a new worldwide virtual office and assistant service aimed at start-up and well established businesses that require an address and offices in locations in other cities in the UK and across the world.
Virtual Office, part of the entrepreneur’s expanding business portfolio, provides businesses with an office address at some of the most prestigious addresses both in the UK and abroad.
Options range from Oberoi Consulting’s own building in Pride Park, Derby to the Gherkin office building in London and then, internationally, the Louis Vuitton building in Paris, the Empire State Building in New York and the Emirates Tower in Dubai.
Virtual Office offers businesses a telephone answering service, mailing address and an actual desk at the location if required. Meeting facilities are also available with the option to have a virtual assistant – supporting the business with cost effective and flexible administrative support.
Kavita explained: “When I set up in business ten years ago, I was based in my bedroom at home until I had the money to be able to buy office accommodation.
“In those early days, I never felt I would be in a position to afford a prestigious business address. Now I want to give the opportunity to others to secure an ‘address’ and associated services even sooner to help their businesses grow.
“In today’s challenging world, we recognise that for a business to prosper – especially during its formative years or when an established business is looking to expand into new markets – it has to keep tight control over its running costs and expenses.
“Keeping overheads, such as rent and rates, of permanent business premises to an absolute minimum is a key consideration. The same can be said of more established businesses, especially when looking to deliver the right impression when expanding into new international markets to attract business.
“In fact, at Oberoi Consulting, we are about to do the same – expanding our presence in the UK and abroad with prestigious addresses that can also provide meeting rooms and options office facilities.
“This is where Virtual Office can help by providing high quality, inexpensive, modern resources and services, and through a no-fee service to source a business address at the number one location of your choosing, appropriate for your business. We provide highly prestigious locations for meetings, postal addresses or temporary accommodation – regionally, nationally or internationally.
“The difference we are making to new and expanding businesses is a free service to research and source the right address for our customers – taking away the hassle of them negotiating with landlords and ensuring that they have the right package in place to suit their business requirements.
“We grow with our clients – tailoring a Virtual Office Package, large or small, to suit individual needs which will create an excellent impression to their current and future clients, and, when required, offering a more permanent base by providing a serviced office at the location.
“We also ensure that those all-important telephone calls and business opportunities are not missed via our Virtual Personal Assistant. We can deliver this service without the restrictive cost of employing a permanent member of staff or long-term commitment to lease or buy office premises.”
Kavita, who featured on television’s ‘Secret Millionaire’ programme, continues to support the Global Girls Fund which she became involved in after the programme, chairing the fundraising of £10 million efforts to empower all girls and young women across the globe to reach their full potential. As with her other businesses, a percentage of the profits from Virtual Office will go to the organisation.
She concluded: “It is more important than ever in tough economic times like this that we support entrepreneurial businesses to grow and create employment.
“Virtual Office and Virtual Assistant gives such companies a cost effective lever at a crucial time in their business when they need the support in place and to make the right impression on their customers to achieve growth.”
