In the old days people would imagine what work in the future would be like and one of these areas of futuristic life was what the workplace would be like.  Visions of robots and computers and artificial things wandering around the office were quite the subject matter for dime store magazines and sci-fi movies.  Today we've got many of those contrivances but also have become experts on the value of virtual offices.

Virtual offices are nothing more than extended duties performed by persons and computers at distances.  Not the traditional office with secretaries buzzing about to and fro or friendly banter dispelled by jovial co-workers.  No a virtual office is one that's put together to get the jobs done in  an efficient and profitable way. 

An organizational hierarchy is still required by a virtual office consisting of a boss, subordinates, those that expedite and those that take orders and do support. In a virtual office you might be the top exec but your second in command might be miles away or even in another country.  Together you'll teamwork with dozens if not hundreds of others in the same way.  You might have your development staff in an area that is in another country or other state.  You'll have data transmitted over computer which you can adjust, evaluate, modify, dispense.  Your other management officers might have suggestions and other things to say or do.  Your manufacturing plants might be at other location where their data is employed from you or one of your virtual staff so that processing of materials can occur.  Your other staff such as your communications division might be taking orders and processing returns while they're located in another location.  All in all your company is operating from who knows what distances and all at your convenience. 

Seeing how this is done you can see not only the efficiency but the overall savings.  You have people not having to risk treacherous weather and roads to get to your location.  You don't have to worry about people cluttering up your office or getting involved in nonsensical personal problems.  You can think with ease and plan without traditional office conflicts.  This is the joy of virtual offices.  You can set them up just about anywhere and in any configuration.  The technologies for dispensing orders, evaluating products and more are so spot on that you can have a virtual office with your headquarters in your smartphone.  You can be sitting poolside eating shrimp cocktails and running your business from afar.  You will be working by statistics and not hysteria.  You can see what your people are doing at a glance and having them correct things to your specifications. 

Overall, today's virtual office is one that is run on both advanced technology as well as traditional leadership and integrity.  A virtual office saves money and builds equity just like a real office does but it takes just the right leader to pull it all together and make it work.
