Office Ireland, a new company backed by a number of prominent Galway businessmen, is tackling the recession head on and is helping other companies to do the same. Pat Winters of Winters Property Management Limited, Denis Cronin of The Paintbox, and Stephen O’Riordan of Connaught Property Services are partners in the company which specialises in providing virtual offices throughout Ireland.
“Virtual offices are ideal for both start-ups and SMEs,” Denis Cronin said at the launch. “A company can sign up on our website for a virtual office and within 24 hours they will have a landline phone number for any county in Ireland, a prestigious business address in Galway, Dublin, or Limerick, or all three, and a receptionist to answer all their calls and pass on the messages to them”. This means that business owners are free to concentrate on finding new customers instead of spending much of their time on the phone.
“In the present climate the market is shrinking and it is no secret that firms throughout Ireland are struggling as a result,” Pat Winters added. “It is therefore important for businesses to seek larger markets. By using virtual offices, companies in Galway can expand into the Dublin and Limerick markets overnight in an extremely effective and cost efficient manner.” Research indicates that companies in the Dublin region have a tendency to do business with other companies close to home and with an 01 phone number and address.
Virtual offices are an ideal solution to this problem and are extremely popular in business centres worldwide. For small and medium sized businesses, a virtual office opens up new markets and leads to new customers and an increase in business opportunities.
