Virtual Office Provider Regus to Offer Hi-Def Videoconferencing Suites

videoconferencingAs we mentioned in How To: Set Up a Business Mailing Address, using virtual office/workspace providers can be a good solution to setting up your mailing address that gives you access to many additional business services.

One such virtual office provider is Regus, which has recently partnered with Austin-based company LifeSize (a division of Logitech) to provide Regus customers with state of the art videoconferencing rooms. LifeSize has been tapped to install HD videoconferencing suites in more than 240 Regus locations around the world.

These suites, known as LifeSize Public Rooms (they are publicly accessible), will feature conferencing systems that are interoperable with existing video platforms and can work with any platform in any country. Regus customers will have the ability to:

  • Have seamless video calling with customers and partners, regardless of their video platform
  • Remotely interview potential new employees
  • Data share and collaborate with colleagues while traveling

Videoconferencing can be important for the startup with remote employees and/or partners who need frequent, clear communication with one another. It can also give the small business a professional image when interviewing candidates through video or pitching to investors online.

Using a virtual officer provider like Regus will give you maximum flexibility, as its services can scale right along with your business. At ChooseWhat.com, we have used a virtual office provider since the company started and highly recommend it to any business that needs a flexible mailing address and wants to take advantage of time-share work spaces (you can schedule the space and rent it out to other companies) and high quality videoconferencing tools.

    @Melanie
    Thanks for your question. I’m not sure about the standard cost for a LifeSize equipped room, and you will have to contact LifeSize for an individual quote: http://www.lifesize.com/Partners/Strategic_Alliances/Regus/Registration.aspx

    But some people have reported being quoted prices similar to Regus’ regular videoconferencing costs. You can read more about Regus’ vc costs on their site: http://www.regus.com/zsys/ncms/en-us/ninety/meetingrooms/videoconferencing.aspx

    This is pretty cool, but is there an additional cost? I could see myself using it if it came as part of the standard vo package.

    Mel,
