AT&T Collaborating with Regus to Provide Affordable Office Space, Complete with Furnishings, Technology and Communications Services
Dallas, Texas, November 11, 2009 – Further extending its holistic approach to meeting the needs of small businesses from coast to coast, AT&T* announced today an alliance with The Regus Group (LSE: RGU), the world’s largest provider of workplace solutions. Under the alliance, Regus will provide AT&T small business customers with affordable, convenient and flexible office space, featuring administrative, communications, printing and technology services.
The new alliance offers AT&T small business customers benefits and discounts at Regus business centers, including:
* Six months complimentary membership in Regus’ Businessworld Gold program, which provides users with access to more than 1,000 Internet-equipped Regus business lounges in 450 cities worldwide
* Two complimentary months on any Regus Virtual Office package, which includes a business address, personalized telephone answering services, and a local phone number
* One-free month rental on any full-time office
“We’re committed to helping small businesses succeed by helping them stay productive, wherever their business takes them.” said Alicia Dietsch, Vice President of Marketing Communications, AT&T. “The freedom to conduct business anywhere is increasingly a requirement of our customers. Affordable, virtual office space extends this freedom to entrepreneurs on an as-needed basis, and is a great addition to the suite of values we offer to enable small business success.”
In these times, many corporate employees are branching out by starting their own businesses and increasingly turning to companies like AT&T and Regus to reduce costs and increase revenues.
“Our collaboration with AT&T is a natural fit, because so many of our existing clients are small business owners and entrepreneurs,” said Michael Haas, Senior Director of Partnerships for Regus Americas. “Whether it’s a home-based business just starting out or a well-established small business, our workplace resources combined with AT&T’s technology solutions can help their small business customers succeed – even in today’s tough business climate.”
