About Intelligent Office

When venture capitalist Ralph Gregory became a father, her sought to work from home more while using services such as receptionists and meeting space to maintain a professional image. This virtual office concept became the basis of Intelligent Office, which Gregory started in 1995 in Boulder, Colorado. Intelligent Office franchisees offer clients access to meeting spaces and shared office space, remote reception, schedule management, and customer service assistance.
