Virtual Office

Definition - What does Virtual Office mean?

Virtual office is a broad term that refers to work environments that are delivered and accessed through Web-based communication and computing technologies.

A virtual office replaces the workspace with cyberspace. It works off of Web-based IT services that are used for the initiation, execution and operation of typical office processes.

Techopedia explains Virtual Office

Most virtual offices operate without a physical office address, and all internal and external business processes and communication are performed via the Internet. A typical virtual office model requires that all employees work remotely and perform most office tasks by accessing a company's Web-based intranet, applications and collaboration tools.

A virtual office relies on different Internet services for optimal operations and the performance of all business tasks, including Web/cloud-based business, collaboration and productivity applications that are instantly and globally accessed via the Internet. Similarly, some service providers offer virtual office solutions that provide each client with a virtual postal address, phone, fax and other services.
