Virtual Office is everything but the office. Meaning, you have all the functionality that a business requires without the physical office space. However, many companies offer business lounges, day offices and even meeting rooms that are available to you on an as-needed basis, allowing you to run your business cost-effectively. Virtual Office package would include a set amount of hours for you to use some of these facilities, but if you require more time, you can always use more at an extra cost.
As time goes on virtual offices are becoming more developed, more streamlined, and better managed. If you would like to try one out Servcorp offers a FREE 30 DAY trial at the moment. Why not try it out?

Business Travel: Big Changes on the Horizon

There are some big things happening in the world of air travel at the moment, and it may affect how you get to your next big overseas meeting and who you are flying with.

Since the September 11th tragedy, many airlines have vanished or have seen nothing but steep declines year after year.  Mishaps like Southwest charging customers multiple times when they ordered on a Friday to receive a 50% discount have not helped to improve the public`s outlook on the situation.  In Asia, HK Airlines has stopped taking reservations past September 3rd for the Hong Kong to Gatwick route that only just started running on March 8th. 
Climate related issues will also now start to take a big role in how airlines work together and start to effect routes between certain countries.  The EU`S Emissions Trading Plan has raised some opposition, China and India have raised the strongest disdain for the idea saying that they may not allow for their airlines to participate, and in the U.S. the House of Representatives passed a bill that orders U.S. carriers not to take part in the program.
However, for some companies in Asia like All Nippon Airways, things are beginning to look up. ANA has been doing much better recently, posting a net profit of 668 million yen for the first fiscal quarter this year. This could be attributed to the rise in the value of the Japanese yen, which has given people earning in Japanese yen spending power when it comes to air travel, but ANA says they do not see any reason why they cannot maintain this positive trend.
