East coast residents and businesses will be working hard to return to normal for a long time after the terrible superstorm, Hurricane Sandy, hit the U.S. in the last days of October. The largest Atlantic hurricane on record, it devastated portions of many states and preliminary estimates of losses, including business interruption, surpass $50 billion. Almost all business in the vast affected areas came to a halt for days, but Opus Virtual Offices reports that clients using itsAvirtual office servicesAnever lost contact with worried customers and experienced minimal disruption.

"We at Opus VO are shocked and saddened by the destruction and suffering caused by Hurricane Sandy, andAwe've given generously to the relief effort," said Yori Galel, the CEO of Opus Virtual Offices. "However, one thing I'm pleased to report is, due to the nature of ourAvirtual office system, Opus clients were very thankful that our service remained operational at all times." Virtual offices are an increasingly popular choice with 21st century business owners, entrepreneurs and franchisees. Opus describes a virtual office as a total business system utilizing advanced technology to create aAflexible online workplaceAthat eliminates the need to rent, lease, or maintain costlyAphysical office space. An Opus virtual office can be operated from home, smartphone, or tablet from hundreds or thousands of miles away, and is available for the nominal cost of only $99 a month. An impressive corporate address is provided, as well as other features to operate a modern business, but most beneficial in events such as hurricanes and serious winter storms, is the Opus state of the art telephony.

A phone and fax number with area code matching the corporate address is provided, yet phones are answered byAlive professional receptionistsAat Opus headquarters. They take calls and messages from an Opus client's customers, using greetings tailored to their requirements. No matter what the weather is like at the corporate address, customers can reach the business through these receptionists or through fax and voicemail that effortlessly converts to email.
