What does a Serviced Office mean?

A managed and serviced office is a furnished and fully-equipped office space, managed by an operator. Here, the operators, as per the availability, rents out a single workstation or the whole floor to their clients, giving them access to ready-to-use office space on flexible terms.

These Serviced and Managed offices have now become an integral part as various startups/businesses/self-employed people are always on a hunt  for low investment and flexible terms for procuring office space.

Further, the advantage of using such office is that there is no hidden cost. The price offered is inclusive of maintenance, facility costs and furnishing, giving it an edge over the conventional leased office spaces. This gives an added advantage to businesses to scale up or down as per their requirement and business plans.
