How to Choose a Virtual Office Provider in Malaysia

August 15, 2014 | SERVCORP

If you want high-quality telecommunications services in a Malaysian virtual office setup, then keep on reading. This article will enumerate everything you need to look out for when it comes to Malaysia-based virtual office providers and solutions. If you're worried about not having a brick-and-mortar office to do meetings and deals with clients and business partners, never fear, you can also rent out serviced offices (offices-for-rent complete with computers, cubicles, office supplies, appliances, furniture, and more) while still maintaining your major business interactions strictly online. You can even get reservations for meeting venues and whatnot if you only need such rental places in Malaysia occasionally rather than every day, week, or month. 

What Should You Be Looking For 

Here's what you should be searching for in terms of Malaysian virtual offices. First, find one with a complete itinerary of office services you absolutely need, from an online receptionist powered by VoIP (voice-over IP) technology to Internet faxes that you can receive on your computer and print out with your printer rather than having to pay for an expensive facsimile machine. Second, the optional serviced office packages must be located within the most important business centers within Malaysia, which include Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, and so forth. These managed offices, business centers, executive suites, or executive centers should have complete facilities and full presentability. 

As for Malaysian virtual office solutions, you should be on the lookout for not only an automated receptionist who'll request customers to press certain numbers to get to certain people, you might also require outsourced customer service representatives working for you on a per-project or per-annum basis depending on your needs (which is way cheaper than hiring your own call center to field calls). It's also a good idea to have a complete software suite of online telecommunication necessities like your own website, forums, chat rooms, virtual chat, and teleconferencing programs (or have Skype installed) to keep tabs on your mobile staff. 

Other Earmarks of Virtual Office Excellence 

The Information Age is upon everyone, and the paperless office exists. Ever since the Turn of the Millennium and the New Tens had come to pass, you can do most of your work virtually. There are in-the-cloud documents you can update with several dozen other workers to facilitate work distribution. Furthermore, people no longer have actual physical inboxes and outboxes; they instead have virtual ones found in email and the like. With that said, you should check out the cloud computing capabilities of your virtual office provider because it will make or break how well their offerings would work in the long run. 

More to the point, your virtual office should be able to ensure constant and reliable connectivity, from its VoIP to its online fax and to its cloud-computing-related applications that ensure clear and constant communication between you, your growing team or staff, and your customers. The complete virtual office package brings together not only office essentials like the online equivalents of the telephone, the receptionist, and the fax machine; it also takes care of other readily available online tools of communication like your website, your email, your instant messenger, and so forth in one jam-packed service.
