Against a background of tough trading conditions, crippling bank charges and high taxation,many small businesses across the North West are finding it hard to make any long term plans and are therefore looking at ways to significantly reduce their operating costs, whilst increasing their operational flexibility.While some are employing drastic short term cost-cutting measures, the more dynamic and forward thinking businesses are taking a long and hard look at methods to reduce their operating costs in the longer term, thus ensuring both their survival and future growth.
During the past few months Bizspace has witnessed an unprecedented demand for flexible workspace from businesses of all sizes – and particularly the SME sector. We have 26 business centres in the North West, including locations in Blackburn, Bolton, Burnley, Preston and Rochdale with each centre providing a range of flexible short term licence agreements, allowing customers to sign up and move in the same day. These provide accommodation solutions for businesses requiring serviced, managed, conventional and virtual office space, studios, workshops, industrial workspace, storage and self-storage facilities, mailboxes and meeting rooms.
Every Business Needs A Degree Of Flexibility; Clients can usually move into their chosen workspace the same day they view it and with lease periods from as little as one month their start-up costs, as well as long term financial commitments, are drastically minimised. In addition, clients also neatly sidestep all the hassles and management time normally associated with visiting agents, searching and viewing properties and then negotiating with landlords. Better Budget Control; In addition to controlling the day to day costs, companies which relocate to flexible managed workspace sidestep all of the liabilities normally associated with traditional workspace acquisition methods. There are no lengthy lease negotiation periods and your rent is fixed for the life of the contract for three months or longer and there are no hidden building refurbishment clauses which are usually associated with long-term leases.
