Fibre optic broadband has arrived!

Fibre optic broadband - Highstone House Business Centre
Fibre optic broadband has arrived!

Highstone House is pleased to announce that high speed fibre optic broadband is now available to all our tenants, offering superfast speeds to cater to all your internet needs at no extra cost to their standard rate!

The fibre optic service is an improvement on traditional broadband as it uses fibre optic cables, made from glass or plastic fibres, to send the data, making it exceedingly fast in comparison as well as being much more reliable.

Today, fibre optic broadband is recommended for businesses as its speed enables the user to be more productive – internal communications are quicker, video conferencing will be smoother, it is quicker to send and receive large documents, and browsing the internet would be much more efficient.

The affordable and improved alternative to traditional broadband may also help reduce other business costs as other areas are improved and become more time-efficient.

Broadband – fibre optic line gives unlimited high speed internet:

• Standard connection at 10MB/s for £30 per month (ample for 95% of our clients)
• Faster connection at 20MB/s for £45 per month
• Superfast connection at 50MB’s for £60 per month
• Well fast connection at 70MB’s for £90 per month
• Mega fast connection at 100MB’s for £120 per month
• Fastest connection at 250MB’s for £200 per month

Right now, Highstone House Business Centre has only one two-person office available for you to rent. Located on the second floor of our sought-after serviced offices in the heart of Barnet, it overlooks the bustling High Street. The monthly charge for the spacious room includes heating, lighting and power, cleaning, maintenance, rates, furnishings and office furniture. There is also a photocopier and word processing equipment which is available at an additional cost. Contact our team today if you would like to take a look and see if the future of your business could be at  Highstone House!

Change the size of your serviced office without changing your address

Change the size of your serviced office without changing your address

Imagine what it would be like to rent a serviced office that can respond quickly to the changing needs of your company. Some of our tenants have recently experienced this and found that our flexibility enabled them to stay in the same building in the heart of Barnet, while easily increasing/decreasing the size of their office space, avoiding any costs involved in informing their customers that they had moved.

A company’s size can change for many reasons – it may decrease due to having to reduce their headcount to cut costs or it may merge with another company, therefore increasing in size.

At Highstone House, we have had four companies in the last 12 months or so whose teams have both increased and decreased and they were able to take advantage of our flexibility. With those that reduced, they would have wasted money paying for a larger office space with empty desks, so they moved to a smaller area, saving them money in monthly rent, and enabling them to continue working without any disruption. Those that moved to larger office spaces were able to do so with minimum disruption to their team and the day to day running of their business, also avoiding the time-consuming process of finding another, larger office.

Take a look at how the office is set up with Highstone House’s virtual tour.

Get in touch today and see how we can help your business make the move to Barnet’s most highly sought-after serviced offices.

Serviced-Offices – Stress-Free Business 

Serviced-Offices – Stress-Free Business

The number of companies moving to serviced-offices has increased dramatically in the capital in the last few years – hardly surprising when they provide such an attractive alternative to the traditional office set-up. Businesses can be run from a modern office without the need to deal with all the tasks leasing an office requires. Here at Highstone House, Barnet’s most sought-after serviced offices, you will find yourself working in a newly refurbished, contemporary office, surrounded by other like-minded business professionals.

Running your own company can be stressful, but take a look at why leasing a serviced office at Highstone House can make the process much easier:

When choosing a location for your business, there are many things to consider, and taking out a long term lease can be a daunting experience. What if your business doesn’t succeed in the way you expect? What if you soon need more office space?  You no longer need to worry about the possibility of an expanding – or decreasing – workforce no longer fitting in to your space. At our serviced offices in North London, when you’re workforce grows, so can your office space.

Avoid having to deal with numerous bills throughout the month – we deal with your telephone line, broadband, utilities etc, so you don’t have to and you just receive one inclusive bill.

As well as dealing with your bills and suppliers, any maintenance issues are also managed by us. If you find a problem, just let us know and it will be dealt with promptly and efficiently.

Our manned reception means your clients and customers are greeted in a friendly and professional manner – without you having to spend time finding and interviewing someone suitable for the position.

Leasing serviced-offices can take all the stress out of the unknown, allowing you to focus on building and growing your business while doing so in one of the capital’s most prominent locations – Barnet.  Your priority remains the same – your business – while ours continues to be to provide you with a highly professional environment in which to locate your business.

Office Flexibility is the key to your success

Office Flexibility is the key to your success

In today’s financial climate, running your own business can be risky and full of unknowns. Today could be a great business day, yet tomorrow could be another story so leasing premises – office flexibility – can be totally daunting if you are tied-in long-term.

Here at Highstone House, we offer short-term leases, meaning if business does not go according to plan, you are not tied in to a contract with us for another 12 months or so. That peace of mind can be invaluable in today’s unpredictable business climate. This is a great way of establishing your business in an office and to ‘test the water’ before signing up to a longer contract.

The great thing about leasing a serviced office from us, in the heart of Barnet, is office flexibility. We offer you the opportunity to respond quickly to changes in your company – increasing your office space is stress-free and straightforward. You let us know your new requirements and we will arrange everything – from your phone lines to your furniture. There is also no need to inform your clients of a change of address, meaning there is no risk of customers missing your new details allowing you to focus on making a success of your business. You can also decrease the space you need in the same way.

When you are setting up an office for the first time, or relocating elsewhere, you are never 100% sure of what your costs are going to be, making it difficult to budget and plan. At Highstone House, the home of Barnet’s most desirable serviced offices, you get one bill, with no nasty surprises. Everything is arranged for you, so all you need to do is turn up and get on with running your business.

Sought-After Serviced Offices Highly Flexible

Flexible Highly Sought-After Serviced Offices

One major benefit of using highly sought-after serviced offices such as ours in the heart of Barnet is that they can be so flexible; it’s a wonder that a company would consider anything else.

Recently, it has been great to see three of our companies expand and take on more staff, therefore requiring larger office space. They were able to do this without any downtime for their business – they increased their office space in the building, avoiding the laborious process of looking for new office space, changing their address on their literature and also informing all their clientele. These are not ideal tasks when their time could be much better spent doing what they do best! There’s also the risk that business could be lost if customers do not receive your new address details.

Not only was the increased office space easy and pain-free for each of these companies, but we were also able to sort out their internet access and migrate their telephone numbers quickly and efficiently, resulting in absolutely no setbacks for any of the companies.

As businesses grow along with the number of staff they employ, our location becomes even more important – unlike many offices we have a car park and are located near an abundance of other parking spaces. A great selling point to your new staff!

Seeing our customers’ businesses expand is great for us here at Highstone House – it proves once again what a great location we are for businesses and seeing them grow is just further affirmation that leasing one of our highly sought-after serviced offices in North London is the winning solution for your business. Give us a call and see how we can help your company – seeing how successful the businesses are that currently rent our space could be what you need to take your business to the next level!

Have You Considered Virtual Offices

Have You Considered Virtual Offices?

Virtual Offices – As technology has developed over the years, our businesses have come to rely heavily on the Internet while employees strive for a more harmonious work/life balance. Companies are finding that their staff may now spend just as much time working from home as they do from the office. Many new businesses are also located in home offices, especially if a rental budget isn’t available.

However, would you really want your home address on all your business literature? We thought not, so here at Highstone House, one of Barnet’s highly sought-after serviced offices, we offer you “virtual offices” – a company address without actual dedicated office space.

Virtual offices have so many benefits that it is definitely worth considering for many companies. If you are just starting your business up, can you afford to sign up to office space before testing the water? You use our office address on your literature/business cards etc and have a dedicated post box so you can come and pick up any business mail, or we can send it on to you. Avoid a busy commute each day by walking straight into your home office, also saving you money on travel. Many people also find it much easier to juggle their work and home life when they work from home and using our virtual office can help you make that step.

Having a virtual office does not mean holding business and team meetings in your living room – when you need to hold a meeting with clients, or other members of your company, then you can use our modern meeting rooms or even use one of our recently renovated serviced offices.

Using our virtual office system is simple, cost-effective and can be done straight away, leaving you time to let your clients know your new business address.

If a virtual office isn’t what you were looking for, then Highstone House could still be the answer for your business. We offer flexible, modern serviced offices in Barnet, North London where the office space you lease can grow as your company does.

Whether you’re in the market for a new office – virtual or otherwise, get in touch and see what we have to offer.
