Serviced Offices Growing Quickly in Palmerston, AustraliaConscious Business Monday, July 16th, 2012
The serviced office industry in the Australian continent has seen significant upward trends in recent times. Since only about a decade ago, when there were very few easily available serviced office options, there are now tremendously more serviced offices available all over the mainland area. It’s not at all complicated to set up shop in almost any area of the continent, or anywhere in the world, for that matter, since, as Google unfailingly revealed, there are over 1,200 international locations available on Regus.com.au alone (http://www.regus.com.au/products/offices/serviced-offices.aspx).
That has been the main goal of serviced office companies all over the world in past years, but particularly in Australia: to meet the rising demand for serviced offices that the public is giving. Requests for such spaces have been surfacing for years now, and the former lack of options has made it harder on business minded individuals to have the office solution that they need. But serviced office companies have made it their priority to expand their services and offer more to those who need.
This change in the attitude of the serviced offices has spawned a great deal of positive improvements in all business districts of Palmerston in the Northern Territory. Palmerston’s atmosphere has always been a businesslike one, though perhaps not as industrial as some of the larger Northern Territory cities like Darwin. However, since, according to the June 2012 issue of the NT Business Review, Darwin is still scheduled to become the Northern Territory’s IT industry hub, prosperous business news seems to be just around the corner for Palmerston, too. After all, major business operations, located in the heart of the city, are what keeps the city alive and economically stable. So it shouldn’t be hard for the casual observer to see why these serviced offices could have a huge positive effect on the city of Palmerston as a whole, not just on the individuals who will be renting them.
A city official said the following: “Serviced offices have allowed some of the smaller businesses more options and advantages in the current economic climate. We in Palmerston hope to foster small business growth and development, and therefore we are extremely pleased with the new serviced offices being offered all over the city. There’s been a real need for a long time now. We’re glad the companies have started boosting availability rates.”
Palmerston is teeming with entrepreneurs, freelancers, small business owners, startups, and all sorts of other members of the business world who can benefit from these serviced offices, and who are benefiting greatly since these new offices have become available. Since just a few months ago when the first new offices were made available for rent, the city of Palmerston has seen more rates of success and higher earnings for entrepreneurs and small business owners than ever before.
The offices provide individuals with the chance to have an affordable office set up that allows them access to many various services they might need. For instance, most serviced offices will offer the basic services of faxes and phone systems, receptionists and communications, and reliable meeting and conference rooms. Beyond these, there are some serviced offices that strive to offer more—things like recreation centers, covered parking, kitchens, and even swimming pools. The appeal in renting one of these offices comes from the fact that you can rent out a small area, even just a single office room, and receive all the services for an extremely affordable price.
Palmerston has received many new offices in the past few months, but residents can be excited to receive more in just a short while. Plans have been set in motion and actions are being taken to open more serviced offices before the end of the year rolls around. Businesses and individuals who haven’t been able to find the right serviced office options in the metropolitan area can expect more options to be available shortly. Serviced offices are only going to become more popular and more available in the months and years to come, according to estimations and past statistics, so business owners need have no fears.
