Technology just keeps on surprising us. It makes so many things that seemed impossible just a few years back possible. You need to open your eyes to these different opportunities that are out there. If you try to stick to same old model over the years you are not going to evolve as a business. If you are starting a new company then it is very important that you take into consideration any new technology that could make running your company much easier. It all depends on what kind of business or company you run though.
The specific topic that I am discussing is the concept of a company without a physical location. That is to say your company exists in cyber space. People connect over the interment through devices such as laptops, computers, smartphones etc. and engage in their daily activities from home. This way you get rid of the need to lease a place. That means you will be cutting out a big expense out of your company’s expenses. Keep in mind though that if you want to create the best virtual office that provides perfect solution possible you will have to make sure that all of your employees have access to the same technology. I am referring to things like a good internet connection, good devices etc. In this situation if you can’t get an email across it’s not as if you can go to where that person is sitting and see what they are talking about.
There will also have to be certain protocols set up about things such as deadlines, communication between employees etc. All of these things are also important if you hope to make this concept a workable reality. You should also keep in mind that certain things like company incorporation in Singapore and all when it comes to companies like this don’t really have that much precedence right now. You might face certain issues if you are planning on doing this at some point in the future. On the other hand with the emergence of many companies like this the grey areas may get resolved sooner than you think.
Overall this is an amazing concept. You can’t do this haphazardly though. What I mean to say is that you need to have a good plan to get about doing this. You also need to establish some basic ground rules and protocols when it comes to certain things as mentioned above. Just understand that just because you don’t have to lease a place doesn’t mean that you can relax when it comes to planning and implementing. You still need to do everything properly. At the end of the day doing this properly is in your best t interest as it is your company, your baby.
