Frequently Asked Questions

APSONetworkingServiced officesSetup

Are the offices ‘private’, or is it more of a communal space for people to use?

The serviced offices across all of our locations are private offices. It is important to note that whilst all offices are private, we still promote a collaborative and networking driven environment.  This is made possible from having so many start ups and small to medium businesses within each complex who are looking to form invaluable business connections. Our St Kilda Rd Towers and Collins Street Tower locations also provide a business lounge which serves as a communal coworking space that all clients have access to.

What are the advantages for a small business in using serviced offices?

A serviced office is a perfect solution for a start up or small business.  It provides companies with a flexible, low cost and mostly importantly stress free opportunity to set their office up without having to worry about long term commitments or the many overheads that come with commercial office space.  Signing up with the right serviced office provider for your business also provides you with the peace of mind that you have the ongoing support you need to turn your business into a success.

What is the difference between a serviced office and virtual office?

The biggest difference between a serviced office and a virtual office is that a virtual office does not provide you with any physical office space.  This enables virtual office clients to portray a professional business address without the overheads of an actual office space, giving them credibility and prestige. Besides this, many of the services are the same such as telephone answering, administrative support, reception services and mailing address. It is important to note that virtual office clients are still able to access temporary office space and coworking space or make use of on-site facilities such as boardrooms at a reduced rate.

FurnitureServiced offices

Can I bring in extra furniture to my office?

Whilst we allocate furniture to a suite based on the number of people it is for, APSO clients are able to bring in their own furniture. Alternatively we can assist you with hiring or purchasing additional furniture at a competitive price.
