A surge in demand for flexible workspace by the UK’s small and medium size enterprises, driven by a desire to reduce overheads during the current economic crisis, is being witnessed by Bizspace, the UK’s leading provider of managed workspace.
“Against a background of tough trading conditions, crippling bank charges and high taxation, many managers across the UK are finding it hard to make any long term plans and are therefore looking at ways to significantly reduce their operating costs,” claims Gareth Evans, managing director of Bizspace. “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 we’ve seen an unprecedented demand for flexible workspace from businesses of all sizes – and particularly the SME sector. We have a client base of more than 3,000 customers at more than 110 locations. Each centre provides a range of flexible 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.
“Clients can usually move into their chosen workspace the same day that they view it, and with licence periods from as short as a month, start-up costs can be drastically minimised. In addition, clients enjoy the flexibility to re-size or even relocate from one centre to another to ensure they meet the demands of their market, thus giving them a distinct business advantage in these tough trading times.”
Bizspace already owns more than 110 business centres across England and Scotland and its quality of customer care has seen the company be awarded the covetted Managed Workspace of the Year award from the Business Centre Association for the past two years in succession.
