Whether you're starting a new business or have an established operation, chances are the way you present it to customers or potential customers is something you think about quite a lot. After all, nobody wants to spend their hard-earned money on a questionable company, in an out-of-the-way location with rude, unhelpful -- or, perhaps worst of all -- nonexistent customer service.
However, equipping a business with polished staff and chicly furnished offices in a sought-after part of town doesn't come cheap. So how is an organization to exude professionalism without breaking the bank? Two words: Metro Offices. Below we give the top five ways using our services can make your business more professional --affordably.
Friendly, professional staff
Our friendly, knowledgeable, and conscientious team members are the face of Metro Offices for a reason. Have a client or prospect coming in for a meeting? The trained receptionists at any of our DC or DC-area locations will meet them with a smile and direct them to where they need to go. Have an IT-related problem? Our award-winning tech team will provide you with on-call network and computer support no matter which of our locations you're in.
Particularly if you're just starting out as a business owner, you may not know what kind of office space you'll need a year or two down the road. And you won't necessarily want -- or be able -- to shell out for a costly, multi-year lease, at least not yet. Enter Metro Offices. With flexible monthly memberships starting at just a hundred dollars a month, you'll get mail services and a business address, as well as daily access to one of our nine locations in or around the District.
Perhaps you have the kind of business that doesn't necessitate a physical location, but you still want the professionalism of a live person trained in customer service answering your calls. Our virtual-office-receptionist option ensures that your business line never goes to voicemail during business hours -- and it does it for a fraction of the cost of a full-time, on-site receptionist.
Fully appointed spaces
At each of our nine spots throughout the DC Metro area, you'll get much more than a chair and a spot to park your laptop. With everything from large, window-filled conference rooms, to cozy huddle rooms for team brainstorms, to cafe-style nooks complete with wet bar and high-top seating, Metro Offices has the space you need to get things done. Add to that dependable, secure, high-speed WiFi, ubiquitous coffee, tea, and water dispensers, a quiet, clean atmosphere and state-of-the-art onsite gyms, and your work may practically do itself.
Getting nervous about DC parking? All of our District locations are within even-lousy-weather-walking distance from a Metro stop, so there's no need. And when it comes to finding a good meal for yourself at lunch or locating nearby entertainment for an evening out with an in-town client, options abound. Each weekday mere yards from our Metro Center building, numerous food trucks -- offering everything from crepes to shawarma -- line up, waiting for diners to sample their goods. And as far as nightlife goes, our Dupont location is just a quick walk from bars and restaurants to match any mood and budget, from the laid-back and budget-friendly to the posh and more extravagant.
