With the concept of Virtual Organizations came the concept of virtual offices. The evolution of the virtual office concept has been aided by office automation. A virtual office functions similarly to a physical office, but without the physical environment and services.
Email, cellular phones, voice mail systems, laptop computers, fax machines, and audio/video conferencing systems are used by employees to communicate with one another. Workers with these technologies can work from anywhere, including their homes, cars, cafes, hotels, and clients’ offices.
These digital communication technologies enable firms to significantly reduce the amount of office labor required of each employee, allowing them to swap dozens of desks with a single “efficiency center” where employees may have conferences and complete other functions in order.
