London, UK (PRWEB) July 16, 2009
Slough and London-based Harvard Managed Offices has launched two new UK virtual office services for companies wanting to keep overheads low without stifling expansion plans. Harvard Managed Office's 4-star office business centre on Slough's Bath Road - The Oriel- can now offer two virtual office packages to clients. Its new Thames Valley Connections package provides the perfect starter option for businesses wanting to trial a virtual office service. The package includes a registered business address, phone and fax message handling plus post handling and forwarding. Upgrading to the new Thames Valley Presence package will also provide virtual office users with a pre-agreed amount of office or meeting room space on top. Prices start from £120 per month.
Slough and the Thames Valley corridor with their proximity to the M4, M25 and Heathrow Airport, are the preferred location for many blue-chip technology, pharma, IT and associated recruitment companies. By using virtual offices at The Oriel, companies can align themselves to these sectors and the dynamic business reputation, network and infrastructure the area enjoys.
As The Oriel's manager, James Parris, points out, "Many a successful business has been launched during a downturn. Services such as our virtual office space packages provide a strong incentive to companies who want to maintain momentum in tough times but also want to keep a tight rein on overheads. Although mobile technology means it's now easier to do business on the move, our services ensure a level of customer service, consistency and professionalism that a 'do-it-yourself on the road' approach simply can't match."
Similar services have been introduced at Harvard's second serviced offices and business centre, the 5-star one heddon street, London W1. Opened earlier this year, one heddon street offers a prime corporate location in Mayfair and is minutes from some of London's most prestigious and exciting shopping and entertainment areas, namely Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Shaftesbury Avenue and Soho.
Says manager, Tara Siddons-Deighton, "one heddon street's London Connections and London Presence virtual office solutions allow clients to run their business from a prestigious W1 postcode and enjoy the status, authority and credibility bestowed by operating from a central London business address. Our virtual office clients could be based in Moscow, Mumbai or Michigan but a prime London address brings them closer to their UK or European client base. Postcode and country can make a huge difference to the way a company is perceived by its customers."
