More from Intelligent Office

Recurring Revenue. Scalable Growth. An Expanding Market.

Ahead of the Curve

While the flexible office space business model has gone mainstream in the last few years, Intelligent Office has been thinking ahead of the market since 1995. We’ve put our insider’s knowledge to use by making deliberate decisions to identify where the market will be going to help keep our franchisee’s revenue growing. 

The number of global coworking members has grown 800% since 2015. To capitalize on this rising tide, we actively collaborate with our current franchise owners and their clients to identify unmet needs and opportunity areas that are waiting to be capitalized.

Business Simplified

Your interest in an Intelligent Office franchise is more than just a smart play. It’s multifaceted. The flexible workspace industry has skyrocketed. However, having fully functional offices is just one aspect of our franchise model. 

The Intelligent Office difference is we built in multiple revenue streams that go far beyond the actual office. Every small business client that joins your Intelligent Office franchise will be able to scale their business as they grow, so you can grow as well.

Revenue Pillars

By providing a smarter array of solutions that small business owners need to keep moving forward—far beyond just having office space—Intelligent Office franchisees create long-lasting revenue-generating relationships with their clients. Every service is designed to position you as an extension of your clients’ businesses as they grow, without requiring any additional staffing.

OFFICE SPACE

  • Flexible, professional, and practical, our office space layouts are designed and furnished to help small businesses be better versions of themselves.

MEETING ROOMS

  • Collaboratively designed with state-of-the-art technology, meeting rooms are situated to provide an additional source of revenue for current clients as well as for single one-off events.

VIRTUAL ADDRESS

  • This value-added service provides your clients a physical destination that requires no additional legwork on your end—the franchise framework already has this service built in to accommodate shipping, receiving, and mailing.

PHONE ANSWERING

  • Your clients will be able to upscale their capabilities by subscribing to our remote world-class professional call center services, which can handle incoming inquiries and questions so your clients can focus on growing their business.

VIRTUAL ASSISTANTS

  • This exclusive offering enables your clients to add the expertise of a virtual administrative assistant to handle day-to-day operations and client-specific tasks.

IO Workspaces are Designed to Thrive Beyond the Space

The profit-potential is designed to never be capped by square footage. Even when our franchisees’ office spaces are fully occupied, they continue to generate revenue by offering multiple lines of services designed to help small businesses grow.

Customer Examples

We provide solutions that business owners need to work, scale, and achieve more. We have deliberately curated our services for the fastest growing business sectors, INCLUDING:

Health Care Professionals

  • The proliferation of independent medical service providers isn’t slowing down. Intelligent Office has all the core services they need so they can stay up to speed.

Accounting Services

  • You don’t have to be great with numbers to know when you have too many hats to wear. That’s why CPAs and professional tax preparers have been utilizing all our services to improve their bottom-line productivity.

Professional Services

  • More and more professionals from marketing to consulting are branching out on their own, but still want the benefits of having an office environment to get things done.

Skilled Trades

  • From independent contractors to growing companies, Intelligent Office can help keep them in the field rather than behind a desk.
