The employees working in the serviced office will have privacy from the rest of the space. They can avail all the other facilities of the workspace space such as uninterrupted power supply, high-speed internet, cloud storage, mail services, reception desk, virtual assistant, recreational areas, and other facilities just like an office for rent.
