Four Signs Your Company Belongs in a Shared Workplace

Key Takeaways

You’re Missing Business Amenities

You Need Meeting Rooms

You have Difficulty Getting Started Each Day

Operational Costs

If you started your business in a garage like Google or Amazon or maybe most of your employees are working from home these days and you need to downsize your headquarters from a downtown corporate building. Whatever  phase your business is in, Nuvodesk is here for you.

Here are some signs that it’s time to move to a co-working space:

You’re Missing Business Amenities

Shared workspaces come with business amenities that most solopreneurs cannot afford for their home offices, like curated beverages and snacks, receptionist services, conference rooms, access to media technology, or even high-speed internet. Nuvodesk provides these things and so much more to make sure you get to work your business how you want to.

You’re Missing Business Amenities

You Need Meeting Rooms

Solopreneurs need to meet with customers, prospects, and partners. Hotel rooms are expensive, coffee shops are noisy and lack privacy, and meeting in your home is just not appropriate. Rented conference rooms in shared workspace are a great alternative with cost-effective options that convey the professionalism you need.

You have Difficulty Getting Started Each Day

Working from a home office poses more distractions. It can make it difficult for solopreneurs to get started each day. Those distractions can also inhibit your ability to keep going through the day. Working in your PJs or hitting the snooze 20 times (because you can) isn’t productive. Laundry, dirty dishes, gardening, kids, spouses, neighbors—these things do not exist in a shared workspace. By having a place to go to each day, you will hold yourself more accountable and be more productive.

Operational Costs

It’s possible that your current office has huge maintenance and operational costs. With a co-working space, you could save money. There are no extra bills tagged on to your monthly rent, so you also have less to worry about. If you’re at a stage where relocating isn’t financially suitable, it may be more economical to have some of your employees working from a shared working space rather than expanding your current office.

Make the Move

There can be several reasons why you may need to relocate your business. Nuvodesk would be happy to give you a tour of our facility to see if it’s the right fit for you.

Technology That Will Keep Your Business Organized

Technology That Will Keep Your Business Organized

By Leslie Radford​

You got your physical space organized in January, here’s how to use technology to help keep your business organized further:

 

Get the Right Note-Taking Tool

Get rid of paper clutter by taking digital notes. Download a note-taking tool like Evernote or Google Keep. You can organize notes and ideas to access for reference with ease. Make sure it’s something you will use consistently and can possibly be used across several devices so you don’t go back to paper clutter.

There are also programs like Google Tasks and Todoist that will help you keep your to-do list handy. To-do lists will keep you undoubtedly organized.

 

Get a Digital Calendar

Digital calendars are great because many can be used across devices, like Google Calendar. They can be color-coded so you can find particular activities quickly and many easily integrate with other software to make scheduling a breeze. This will help keep you organized by knowing exactly what you are doing when so you don’t miss important dates revolving around your business.

 

Programs that Keep You in Touch with Clients

Staying in touch with clients and customers can be overwhelming and can get disorganized fast. However, keeping in touch with your customers indicates that you care about them and value their business. A CRM (customer relations management) program, like Hubspot, will keep all their contact information in one spot. You can find their information quickly to send regular notes or emails about new products and services that you offer or just to check in with them.

Several email marketing tools like MailChimp allow you to store a customer’s birthday and send an e-card or other email campaigns automatically.

 

Go Paperless

These days, with newer and faster applications, it’s now possible to have a paperless, uncluttered office. Having access to data at your fingertips indicates a good business organization.
