Kochi is a metropolitan city in Kerala which is densely populated and is also the largest urban agglomeration. It is a very busy city and is easily accessible through all modes of transportation. Kochi is a major business centre and there are many companies in this city. Many new companies are also being started every now and then, which brings the necessity of space for these companies. The real estate price in Kochi is increasing at rapid speed and there is no enough space for expansion. The demand for office rooms in Kochi is more with the opening of many IT companies. Over the past few years many business centers have been opened in Kochi including the IT Park named Infopark in Kakkanad, Cochin Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) etc.
The metropolitan areas of Kochi include the mainland Ernakulam, Fort Kochi, Edapally, Kalamassery, Kakkanad, Tripunithura and a group of islands scattered in the Vembanad Lake. People are interested in starting their businesses in the main areas of Kochi like Kakkanad, Kalamassery and Palarivattom because of reduced traffic, easier access to any means of transportation including the proximity to the Cochin Airport.
A new and easier method of opening an office in Kochi is the Virtual Office. Those who wish to start a small business or freelance works can take up a virtual office which is cheaper and reliable compared to the cost of setting a physical office.
There are many businessmen and entrepreneurs who live in neighboring districts like Thrissur, Alappuzha etc. and run their business in Kochi. They travel to Kochi daily for their businesses as it is going to be easily accessible with the coming of the Kochi Metro Rail. But the traffic in Kochi is getting congested day by day.
Setting a Virtual office can be done easily and within a day the business can be run. One of the main advantages of a virtual office is that it is economical and eliminates many expenses. There is no need to spend money for appointing full time staffs, furnishing the office, rental charges, utilities etc. The idea of Virtual office is common in countries like USA, UK etc and also in Indian cities like Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai etc. We are proud to say that our Kochi has also joined these metros in having several Virtual office providers.
By signing up for a Virtual Office, you get a Virtual Address, Virtual Phone Number, Fax etc. This enables such businesses a chance to enter into Cochin’s market and that too with a low budget. Another advantage of Virtual office is that it helps the businessmen to work at any time as they wish. They also get a Virtual Receptionist for answering the calls and you don’t have to spare time for those. This is best for NRI’s of Kerala as they can show their business location in India as well.
There are various Virtual office providers at present. Those who wish to create one, can visit their website and go through the various affordable and reliable plans available with them. By signing up via the service providers, one gets a virtual address, virtual landline number with Cochin STD code, Virtual Fax and Live reception support.
