Green plants are a great way to create ambiance, fill unused space and provide clean air, but they aren’t the only ways to cheaply and easily bring more green into your workspace. We all know that “green” business practices are a good idea. Even if you don’t buy into the notion of saving the planet, green workspace practices absolutely save….green (I’m talking dead presidents, coin, moolah…) and, who doesn’t like the sound of that? At Pacific Business Centers we pride ourselves on taking those easy, extra steps and doing our part. We adhere, as best we can, to the sustainability mantra: recycle, reuse and reduce. […]
When Polaris Wine was looking for a way to be two places at once, Pacific Business Centers’ new HD Video Conferencing service provided the perfect platform. On May 17th, the wine making company held an event simultaneously in Pennsylvania and California to educate their sales people and experience a new vintage of wine together.
Polaris Wines is a winemaking company based in Napa, California. This “Winery Without Walls” was a perfect candidate for Pacific Business Centers’ HD Video Conferencing services.

Recently, the amount of businesses switching from physical offices to a virtual office has grown dramatically. There are still some skeptics of the virtual office model, but in the future, this model is going to continue to grow and thrive.

All you’ll have to pay for is your virtual office service plan, which is a fraction of the cost of maintaining a physical office. […]
“Make your Front Porch your Front Office”: That is one catchy slogan used by Clarkson University to promote the “Forever Wired” initiative, aimed at bringing broadband to the Adirondack Region in upstate New York. Not just to promote broadband, but also to develop outreach educational programs on the use of technology, to encourage telecommuting, to incubate local entrepreneurs, and in the end to ambitiously develop an environmentally sensitive region in an eco-friendly manner.

Traditional Office Space is going the way of the Selectric. It is still there, but no one uses it.
The office of the future is mobile, ubiquitous, and on-demand. Landlords, be warned. This will radically change the commercial real estate landscape. Few office space providers are prepared for this tsunami whose first ripples are already quite visible.
The earthquake that triggered the tsunami started long ago with the adoption of the Internet and mobile technology.

However, they did drive significant behavioral changes in how office workers get their work done. These changes are about to destroy ‘the office’ as we know it. […]
