DALLAS—The Big D is getting a brand new executive office suites player. Access Business Centers, an international executive office suites and conference center company, just opened a facility at the Spectrum center in Addison.
One of the earmarks of Access Business Centers is its collaboration and conference centers. The Dallas office space offers a custom 4,000-square-foot collaboration and conference center featuring high-tech mediscape, complete with a collaborative, upscale furniture solution and technology integration offered by Steelcase.
“We are excited about this venture. Companies are looking to cut real estate costs by utilizing unique facilities like ours to streamline office operations without sacrificing quality and functionality,” says Francisco Lomelin, president and CEO of Access. “Our team of office professionals provide services found in executive suite environments as well as complete services for start-up businesses seeking to expand. Client success is our primary goal.”
Lomelin isn’t just blowing smoke about functionality. The Dallas executive office suites have video conferencing equipment from Polycom. And SMtelecom installed and will maintain the systems and networks. The serviced office space taps a Cisco System backbone network, and a ShoreTel VoIP telephone system to provide services.
Access is claiming that few shared office operators can offer the mix of exclusive services it does. That’s a bold claim in an industry where Regus has telepresence centers. Still, Access Business Centers does offer more services than many business centers, including private offices and team offices, executive reception service and front management office support, video conferencing, and collaboration and conference facilities.
Access also offers some less common services such as professional support services and back office management support, sales and marketing assistance, direct marketing, telemarketing, meeting and event planning services, multimedia presentation capabilities, and consultative support on business formation and U.S. expansion plans.
All in all, Access does offer a longer list of services. And the collaboration and conference rooms are a nice value-add for tenants that need to meet with clients or just have break out sessions with larger teams.
