We coined the term Workplace-as-a-Service ™ in 2004 and have lived by it ever since!
CloudVO is a trademark of Cloud Officing Corp. Our mission is:
- To provide ubiquitous access to non-dedicated office space and conference room solutions for mobile workers under a hosted model we refer to as “Workplace-as-a-Service ™”.
- Incubate startups, entrepreneurs, and small businesses by providing robust infrastructure services supported in the Cloud while cutting cost.
CloudVO is well positioned to assist and amplify trends toward a more distributed workforce, increased flexibility, outsourcing of non-core office space, telecommuting, sustainability, and a growing demand from professional firms, start-ups, and enterprise workers for on-demand workplaces. We are a proud member of the Global Workspace Association.
We do this via the following 3 web retail sites:
- www.CloudVirtualOffice.com, aimed at freelancers, home-based entrepreneurs, professionals, and companies needing to establish a local presence in specific locations.
- www.CloudTouchdown.com, aimed at enterprise users and highly mobile workers who need touchdown office and Meeting Room access in multiple, sometimes undefined, locations.
- www.CloudMeetingRooms.com, for professionals who need occasional access to Day Offices, Conference Rooms, or Deposition Rooms
Our CloudVO Portal is designed for our local space provider partners to update their center information and CloudVO offerings.
