About CloudVO

We coined the term Workplace-as-a-Service in 2004 and have lived by it ever since!

 

CloudVO is a trademark of Cloud Officing Corporation.

Our mission is:

  • To provide ubiquitous access to carefully-vetted flexible office space and meeting room solutions for remote workers and distributed workforces under a Workplace-as-a-Service model
  • To serve small and large businesses alike by providing robust shared office services that can be purchased online under a subscription model, and reduce occupancy expenses.

Build a Virtual Office, rent a Private Office, buy a Coworking Membership, or book a Meeting Room when image, cost, quality of service, and amenities matter.

Our flexible offices and coworking facilities are located in prime office buildings managed by carefully selected on-demand office operators. Our friendly support staff will greet you and your guests and attend to your business needs at any one of our locations.

Our virtual office solutions provide a prestigious business address, live telephone answering services, and meeting room usage. Our facilities also include coworking spaces, day offices, and private workspaces.

Our rates are typically cheaper than hotel conference rooms (50% or more typically) and in better business settings. Meeting rooms are available on an hourly basis. Our facilities come with all the required amenities expected in the most demanding corporate environments.
