Address your business

March 26, 2009

As access to the internet via laptops and cell phones becomes increasingly prevalent, we are now free to conduct our business from almost any location.  Mobility definitely has perks that increase flexibility and decrease the cost of traditional office expenses.  Yet, even with so much of our communication existing in cyber space, we should not escape the opportunity to build trust by giving clients a legitimate business address, phone number and a comfortable place to talk face-to-face.

The Suites Collection offers telecommuters a great way to establish a corporate identity by providing virtual offices at our three business centers.  For $200 a month, a virtual office gives you a prestigious address and 312 area-code phone number.  Your calls will be answered with your company name and forwarded to voice mail, which you will have access to 24 hours a day.  Mail and packages will be received for you during normal business hours and when the time comes to meet in person with clients or prospects, you can arrange for use of any of our conference facilities.  Establishing a virtual office with us also gives you access to our copy center, fax machine, scanner and administrative personnel.

When your office is mobile, the conferencing and meeting facilities at The Suites Collection are the perfect place to conduct professional meetings and give presentations.  All our rooms come furnished and equipped specifically to make your meetings as productive as possible.   Whether it’s an intimate small group discussion or an executive level conference in our rotunda board room, we can accommodate a range of meeting styles.

“I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity.” – John D. Rockefeller

Sometimes we need a push to point ourselves in a new direction.  The current economic climate is certainly giving us a big push right now!  While the financial crisis worsens, it’s easy to feel a loss of confidence and control.  But what we decide to do in the face of adversity and how we respond to perceived failures are actions that we actually do control.  When you find yourself surrounded by change and uncertainty, take time to listen to your instincts and follow your dreams.  Who better to invest in than yourself?  If starting your own business is something you’ve always wanted to do, The Suites Collection can help you find a place to make that dream come true.   

If you need a basic set up for your new business entity – our virtual office program provides you with a prestigious address in the Loop or River North and a professional receptionist to answer your calls.   Our flexible office program allows you part time use of a private office for meeting preparation or to connect with clients when you are between downtown appointments.   If you need full time dedicated space, a private office in any of our 3 convenient business centers can be arranged with furnishings, telephone and high speed internet service included.  To help you hit the ground running, our centers are equipped with additional services including use of copier, fax and secretarial support. 

 Our staff is constantly researching and reporting on trends we think will benefit our tenants.   Read more of our blog to find out about the small business incentives in the current stimulus plan, tax advice and recommendations for ways you can save on everything – from insurance to marketing to technology.  We are here to help your business grow and we look forward to meeting you and listening to your ideas.   Find out more about us by calling us at 312-994-2700 or schedule a tour today.
