The biggest downside of changing offices used to be the sheer amount of time lost in transition.

But that needn't be the case any more. A new breed of serviced office is springing up and making the "plug and play" office a reality.


The biggest downside of changing offices used to be the sheer amount of time lost in transition.

But that needn't be the case any more. A new breed of serviced office is springing up and making the "plug and play" office a reality.

Taking cues from the ultra-flexible serviced office suites from Langstone Technology Park near Portsmouth, we look at how easy it can be to move office if you opt for the right package.

The evolution of serviced offices

Serviced offices have been around for years, and are supposed to offer a lower-friction way for businesses to scale up or relocate. The concept is a great one, although many companies have tired of the serviced office scenario.

Why? Tenants have often found there's actually a fair bit more to sort out that they thought. Usually, this means extra charges. At best, it means a bewildering array of options and contract terms. For example, you might have to pay for installation of telecoms and internet. You might be hit with unexpected service and maintenance charges, fees for simple services such as having a key cut, and even off-putting fees for up-sizing you office or exiting, should your needs change and you wish to leave.

A simpler, slicker offering

Langstone's approach changes all that. Their clients are offered a dazzlingly simple setup: a rolling one-month contract, an all-inclusive fee and some of the most attractive facilities an office park can provide.

Combined with a straightforward policy of providing vital services such as broadband and office telephones as a matter of course, it makes it a lot easier for businesses to simply roll up, plug in and get on with things. This restores the flexibility that serviced offices are supposed to provide, and goes further: if you need to move or leave altogether, there's no hurdles in the way.

The end result: your urgent office needs can be dealt with remarkably quickly, giving businesses the chance to set up, get going and move on with minimum hassle. Plug and play? Possible indeed.
