Here is what some of our IoD office outsourcing members have to say about our service, and how it has transformed their business.


Michael-Mitchell-case-study-testimonial-office-outsourcing-min

Michael Mitchell, Founder and Principal, Gamea

Tell us about your company…

I run and own a small management consultancy business. We do business change and transformation, predominantly with large retail banks here in London as well as in New York, Frankfurt and Singapore.

How long have you been a member of IoD Office Solutions?

I’ve been a member of the IoD for 15 years or so and I joined Office Solutions in 2012. I wanted a London address so when the IoD came up with the idea Office Solutions, it was a marriage made in heaven for me.

What made you join OS rather than other providers?

There are other providers but what really swung it was the staff. They are superb.

How has OS helped you?

In a number of ways. The networking events are great at connecting you with like-minded business people who are dealing with the same challenges and asking the same questions.

Would you recommend OS?

On more that one occasion when people have asked me ‘what do you do for your office arrangements in London?’ I’ve just said, ‘go and speak to the people in Office Solutions” – I can’t praise them highly enough and it’s been a fantastic experience so far.


Silvia-Mondello-case-study-testimonial-office-outsourcing-min

Silvia Mondello, Director, Totally Reward Ltd

Tell us about your company…

We provide practical solutions across all areas to do with compensation and benefits such as pay structure design, bonds schemes, executive remunerations as well as pension governance and global mobility. We had a deep knowledge of the European market as well as America and Asia-Pacific, so we can support our UK clients across many international operations.

How long have you been a member of IoD Office Solutions?

I’ve been with Office Solutions since 2012.

What made you join OS rather than other providers?

It has a brilliant back office, team and support. They’re reliable, they’re efficient, they always have a smile on their face and a really big plus is that, for me, they’re like a family.

How have you benefitted from OS?

They also have very good technology and web service so when you run your company from Office Solutions you’re really under the impression they’re really running your company, the team is your team and my clients have got absolutely the same perception when they call the office number. And, of course, I’ve got the ability to register a Pall Mall address. That makes such a difference on your business card.

Would you recommend OS?

I often talk about and recommend Office Solutions for the great service and the great facilities they provide.


Nick-McCalmont-Woods-case-study-testimonial-office-outsourcing-min

Nick McCalmont-Woods, Founding Partner, McCalmont Woods Real Estate LLP

Tell us about your company…

McCalmont-Woods is specialist real estate agency that acquires and disposes of office space for corporate occupiers in Central London. We also give landlord and tenant advice to occupiers. We only act for tenants rather than landlords, and that means we avoid any conflict of interest in any professional service advice.

How long have you been a member of IoD Office Solutions?

We moved our business here in November 2011 from Canary Wharf, and we haven’t looked back since.

What made you join OS rather than other providers?

We took the view that the service here is far more personal and for that reason we felt more comfortable being in this environment rather than being in perhaps a more sterile environment that you might get from other serviced office providers.

How have you benefitted from OS?

The benefits are numerous ­– the first benefit is obviously the personal service that you get from the day-to-day contact with all the IoD staff, which is terrific. We also have the opportunity to be part of a wider business community and to network and to take advantage of the research and development capabilities that the IoD have to offer.

Would you recommend OS?

Definitely. I have recommended Office Solutions to other people. It’s great place to do business.


Keith-Mullen-Case-study-testimonial-office-outsourcing-min

Keith Mullan – Managing Director, 1ClickFactory

Tell us about your company…

1ClickFactor is a company that assists Microsoft partners to implement IT solutions more easily, profitably, and predictably. Our head office is in Denmark and our main factory is in Lithuania but we have services, and support the partners, in Britain. We’re the face of the group in the UK.

How long have you been a member of IoD Office Solutions?

Just over a year.

What made you join OS rather than other providers?

We are based an hour from London by train. At the time, we were looking at prices for office facilities locally as well as in the capital. The IoD services were competitive and it’s great having a central London phone number.

How has OS helped you?

The 120 Pall Mall address has helped an awful lot in the terms of putting us on with clients. The facilities are fantastic and the services that we get with the phone and mailing side from IoD are first rate. It’s a virtual office and nobody is any the wiser that it’s the IoD staff answering the phone.

Would you recommend OS?

I would certainly recommend the service to a friend or colleague and have done so in the past. Anything you want and they’re here for you. It’s been great for our business to be associated with the IoD.
