In today’s ever-changing competitive global marketplace, time, money, and effort are the three key components on which a growing business thrives. Managed offices, known for being flexible, cost-effective and a convenient alternative to conventional offices, represent a way to optimize these elements simultaneously.
Managed offices are a viable option that can be considered by businesses of all kinds. Companies that are expanding to a new market, large short-term project based organisations, that already have their own traditional office space but have separate business units that they need to export from their main office due to any a reason, turn to Skootr’s office solutions as they are provided with a 100 percent agility.
Businesses are evolving to a state where they manage their operations on an increasingly regular basis, creating a need for flexibility in not only the manpower but also the capital infrastructure. As a leaner alternative to the conventional office spaces, managed offices will continue to be a major occupancy option by companies of different industries. Skootr takes on the responsibility of maintaining the premises and providing a wide range of services, including reception, secretarial support, conference and meeting facilities, high speed internet access and so on.
With sharper competition coming to market every year, it’s impossible to accurately predict where your business will stand years from now. Your landlord, however, will still require you to sign a 9-year office lease. Leases force companies into two potentially bad situations: buying a huge space in the hopes of growing into it or buying just enough with a risk outgrowing it. Either way, you’re in trouble.
If you’re a 50-person team looking for a 10,000 sq ft of space in the heart of Gurgaon that will allow your team to grow to 100 by the end of the year, you’ll wind up spending more than INR 50,00,000 on your security deposit, furniture and upfront expenses on a 9-year commercial lease. A restrictive lease prevents you from future-proofing your business during the highs and the lows that your team will indefinitely experience over the years.
If such a team with similar expectations signed with Skootr for a year or more, their cash outflow would have decreased to its one-fifth and the terms would have been tailored to fit to their business goals. Skootr promotes a company to focus on what matters the most: the future of its business and to use its resources to the maximum.
At Skootr centres, infrequently used spaces, such as pantry, conference and meeting rooms, are available for use and payable on a “pay-per-use” basis. This method is far more efficient as compared to conventional office spaces where companies are charged for owning such facilities even if they are unused most of the times.
The choice ultimately comes down to one question:
Are your resources better spent on finding an office space or on growing your business?
