August 1, 2011 – Suite 200 at 225 Cedar Hill Street, Marlborough, MA is an address that is very familiar to the business community because it is home to 103 different companies, 45 of which actually reside at the Regus center on the second floor. Suite 200 contains 65 office spaces of differing sizes that can be configured to suit a customer’s particular needs.
Regus offers several affordable workspace options in a state-of-the-art flexible environment. These include private offices, a corporate campus for larger teams, team, project offices and an open plan office design, which is well suited for networking. Building amenities include locker rooms with showers, an exercise room, a professionally managed building cafe and generous parking. Within Regus’ fully equipped business center there is an on-site business lounge and conference rooms.
Regus can also accommodate unlimited virtual clients. The virtual office model allows a business person to have a formal business address and call answering. State-of-the-art phone software enables the receptionists Alyssa Amundson and Joan Davies to identify each client’s calls and in turn personalize their greetings and voice mail options.
Regus currently has around 30 virtual clients and the demand continues to increase. Some of these clients are startups, some are small or home-based businesses, others are out-of-state businesses who need a local address. They come in just a few times a week, yet benefit from a prestigious address and all the perks of a staffed office at a fraction of the cost of running a full time operation. There is even a ‘day office’ option where office space can be rented by the day or even by the hour. Regus’ meeting and conference room facilities can also be booked by members when needed. The Regus office model allows businesses to grow and expand or even downscale as their needs change. It also offers them freedom to relocate to a Regus facility in any part of the country, or anywhere in the world, when needed.
Technical facilities include RegusNet high speed Internet access, Wi-Fi, videoconferencing studio and voicemail, award winning security and disaster recovery systems. Businesses reap all of the benefits and none of the IT headaches.
