As the pioneer in the virtual office industry, Intelligent Office continues to innovate and brings eco-friendly solutions to more businesses.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Intelligent Office San Francisco, the leading virtual office service provider for mobile executives and small businesses, announces eco-friendly, innovative solutions that can alleviate the increasing strain on physical resources by businesses and consumers. By sharing offices, meeting rooms, resources, and staff, Intelligent Office helps businesses realize both environmental and monetary efficiencies.
Earth’s resources are being stripped at an alarming rate because of the rapidly increasing global consumption of goods and services, which is due to the growing world population, expanding consumer class, and rising incomes. Calculations based on the Global Footprint Network’s 2011 ecological statistics estimate that if every person in the world lived like an American, 4.1 Earths will be required to sustain the population – a luxury that we do not have.
According to IHS Global Insight, the total US metropolitan area population is projected to grow by 32% over the next three decades. As cities get more crowded, resources will be scarcer and the traditional model of employees working in a physical office will need to evolve. The increasing pool of telecommuters, mobile professionals, and home-based businesses are solutions to this growing problem and can shift the workspace paradigm; their work styles promote sustainability because they have a smaller physical footprint and consume fewer resources. Telecommuters and home-based businesses also reduce carbon emissions by having workers skip the daily commute. Intelligent Office’s virtual office solutions can provide the methods and infrastructure for the mobile and home-based workforce to work effectively and efficiently.
Intelligent Office provides shared office space, meeting rooms, resources, and staff to help businesses operate virtually. Its on-demand, à la carte concept allows a business to function efficiently without needing dedicated, full-time resources. For example, an attorney who works at home can schedule the occasional private meetings with clients at Intelligent Office’s meeting rooms, which can be rented by the hour. In addition, Intelligent Office has address/mail services and virtual receptionists that help the attorney convey the professionalism of his/her practice. The “virtual” attorney does not need to lease physical office space and hire a full-time receptionist to project a professional image.
“Sharing resources is a great way to reduce one’s footprint and achieve sustainability,” says Wilson Tandiono, Director of Intelligent Office San Francisco. “This model has gained traction in the vehicle sharing industry (according to surveys quoted in a RAND study, 9 to 15 vehicles are displaced for each shared vehicle). It has continued to pick up momentum for shared office spaces and virtual assistants as well. As the pioneer in the virtual office industry, Intelligent Office continues to innovate and brings eco-friendly solutions to more businesses.”
The Intelligent Office San Francisco facility at 100 Pine Street, centrally located in the Financial District, is by the Embarcadero BART/Muni station, which allows for easy access by public transportation and roadways. The building is the first multi-tenant building in California to receive a LEED energy and environmental certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. These are among many of Intelligent Office San Francisco’s eco-friendly initiatives, and are perfectly aligned with its commitment to sustainability and finding solutions to problems, both big and small.
