The Lean Business. Can you save costs without reducing service?

Pressure to reduce costs?

Thinking about reducing costs can bring on a worrying negative perspective if you aren’t open to the changes in today’s business environment.

You can reduce costs and improve the image of your company. You can expand the services and the rapport with your important clients while you reduce outlays. It’s all very possible

The Serviced Office solution answers these cost reduction challenges by being lean, versatile and practical. Its totally possible to reduce costs and improve the outlook for your business.

Let’s be realistic. Think of all the outlays you pay for a conventional leased office space. You have charges for utilities, security, cleaning and maintenance. Then there is the restocking for the amenities for the bathrooms and the kitchen. There are outlays for furniture, office chairs and tables, phones and internet. And then you have your own in-house reception that you are still paying for whether the phone rings or not. Does a business really need to bother with all this?

If you have a conventional office lease, even when half your staff are working from home, you are still paying for all that empty space, those empty desks. Although your boardroom is only utilised for a few hours every week, you are still paying for all that unused time. All that lighting, those work stations, the air conditioning and heating.

The model for office space utilisation is changing. Advances in technology and connectivity are shaping new approaches to the “workplace”.

Let’s examine the lean alternative to the traditional office lease.

At a Serviced Office you will only pay for what you use. Need a large fully furnished conference room for twenty people under Covid19 protocols? Done. You’ve only paid for the time you’ve used the room. You didn’t need to buy that stylish furniture or choose the paintings. You didn’t have to install the state-of-the-art conferencing and audio-visual tech and your firm didn’t have set up the room with your own refreshments. Need some meeting rooms so you can train new staff and interview prospective salespeople. Done. You have private meeting rooms with full connectivity, totally chic but fit for purpose spaces that your business can utilise, and you only pay for what you’ve used. No longer need the meeting rooms and conference rooms, just want to work from the private suites and co-working facilities? All good. Only pay for what you use.

Now, lets think about image. Can you reduce costs while improving your business image for your clients and your staff? When you don’t have to pay for all those overheads incumbent to a traditional office space, you can realise the potential of the flexibility of the Serviced Office solution.
