Top 10 Reasons to Choose OfficeKey Over Commercial Office Space

I often find that we are competing against commercial office space providers.  When that occurs it is important for people to make certain that they are comparing apples to apples. Sometimes a commercial lease may seem like a better price relative to ours.  However if you dig into the details we are likely to come out ahead in value as well as on a square footage basis.

For the sake of argument let’s say that OfficeKey has a private office with 150 square feet that is available for $800 a month all in. On the other hand there might be a commercial space that is the same price but has 600 square feet. On the surface that seems like a better deal but there are several other factors to consider. On a most basic level is the fact that with OfficeKey, while your private dedicated space is only 150 square feet, your “office” will also consist of a reception area, a minimum of 6 meeting rooms at each location, and other common areas. They add up to a few thousand square feet compared to just 600. Not to mention that it is fully furnished and already has the receptionist position filled for you!

Another key point to consider is the lease term. Any business would be lucky to continually meet or exceed their projected growth, however that’s not always the case. By signing a lease for 5, 7 or even 10 years you better be sure to forecast accurately. The alternative is that OfficeKey provides the ability to expand or contract as needs change. Although that doesn’t mean that we can’t be a long term solution. Some companies use OfficeKey on a short-term basis but there are also examples of companies that have been with us for nearly 30 years!

With all of that said, here are the top 10 reasons to choose OfficeKey over a commercial space:

  1. Five locations for the price of one
  2. Access to Ohio and Kentucky
  3. Built in staff for the reception area, caller assistance, scheduling and other tasks
  4. No long term leases
  5. Ability to add or subtract space as needed
  6. Immediate availability
  7. Furniture is included
  8. Technology and equipment investments are made for you
  9. No utilities
  10. Free coffee (but we won’t hold it against you if you walk in with Starbucks in hand!)
