In recent years, business has changed in various profound and interesting ways. Much of this change is thanks to the advent of the internet, which has streamlined internal and external communications considerably. Cloud computing is a good example of this, where data is stored on distant external servers, as opposed to in-house.
For lots of businesses, these and other changes have relinquished the pressure on a physical office space, and so removed the need for permanent offices. Instead, many businesses are choosing office space to rent on a flexible basis.
Also, globalisation is now becoming ever more ubiquitous. Companies of all sizes are now able to more easily tap into foreign markets, thanks largely to the internet making things easier. Some businesses choose temporary office space in a foreign market, simply in order to “test” the market more effectively.
For some businesses the need to move into temporary offices is more practical. There could be renovations underway, or a company could be in that awkward limbo between an old office and a new one. In this instance a temporary office can be a very valuable stop-gap.
You will know when your company needs new offices, either on a temporary or a permanent basis, and one of the secrets of success in business is to develop and change. The internet now makes it much easier to find and compare office spaces all over the word.
