Launched in 2010, the myOffice (espacoavila.com) was the first Virtual Office application worldwide oriented exclusively for PC/Mac, iPad and Smartphones. The myOffice allows professionals and companies having a virtual office to get notifications in real time about received telephonic contacts, correspondence and fax arrivals. In practical terms, companies start having access to the office, not only on their PC/Mac/iPad, but also on their mobile phones, wherever they are.
Clients can also have information about other Business Centers of an international network with around 300 partners, being this very useful in internationalization processes or in the development of projects abroad – through this mean they may, for example, open a virtual office in other countries and book meeting rooms.
The application is available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, although it is foreseen the launch of the versions for Nokia and BlackBerry, among others.
