Offices.net launches free 'Map-driven' office search
February 19, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsLeading online office search website Offices.net has announced the launch of its new 'Map-driven' search system.
Using an integrated Google Map mashup, this site allows visitors to the site to find offices, executive suites and serviced office space simply by navigating around a map of the US.
'Offices.net is all about making it easy for businesses of all sizes to find their work space, so there was a huge appeal to using a simple point-and-click system to let people explore their area on a map,' said company Director Matt Aird. 'Visitors can see the locations of office buildings, internal and external photographs and lists of their facilities right there on the map.'
Offices.net provides detailed information about the office space rental market to the public, and does not charge or require registration before allowing access to information. In another move to simplify the process of obtaining office space, users can now add as many offices as they are interested in to a 'shopping-cart' and get quotes and detailed information about them all at once.
'The the map-driven system, photo-displays and the office shopping-cart are all part of our effort to integrate the best of recent developments and intuitive navigation ideas to make the site as easy and fun to use as possible, and we're proud of our development team's efforts,' Offices.net Marketing Communications Specialist Jurga Galvan added. 'Choosing the right location and office space is vital for any company, especially new ones starting out in the current tougher business environment, so anything we can do to make that simpler, easier and cheaper is worth the effort.'
Along with the map system, www.Offices.net provides free search tools to help users find executive suites, business centers, office buildings, flexible and shared office space for lease across the US.
Executive suites, shared office space and other types of short term office rentals are growing in popularity as they provide flexibility and cost savings compared to conventional office space. Businesses can move in immediately and with very little capital investment in terms of furniture and equipment, and most office buildings providing reception, janitorial and support staff.
