what our clients say...

all good things must come to an end; we have recently completed our stay at b.u.r.o.s. the serviced office facility in strassen, as we move on to a more permanent premises.

so, why the move to b.u.r.o.s? the decision was simple, really. our company has grown from a one-person operation to one with a few people, and we have plans to grow further still. while working from home certainly has its advantages, it certainly isn't conducive to having regular meetings, primarily strategic, so we wanted something that allowed us to both work together on operational matters as well as discuss strategy, planning and logistics.

with the events pillar of the business seeing arguably its busiest time of the year either side of the summer holidays, their planning necessitated regular interaction, including storage of equipment, which also required space, as well as meeting with suppliers and the like. we also needed interaction between sales and editorial staff too, from time to time. such planning requires meetings, and we needed plenty of those, without disturbing those working on the publishing side of the business. so, when we needed extra rooms, all we needed to do was to ask to reserve one - big / small, etc. - which was fully serviced and included refreshments, etc. that meant we did not have to worry about organising such things ourselves and we could get on with our core business.

another thing we didn't have to worry about was car-parking, as there was ample on-site parking for us and for visitors, all included in the overall package. so what did this package include, exactly? firstly, the offices: we could choose which of the office combinations best suited our requirements, with desks, chairs (super comfy!) and office stationery all included, as were utilities (electricity and heating - not that we needed it during the summer months, though). so what else was available to us at b.u.r.o.s? apart from the building-wide wifi, the technicians were on-site should they be required; thankfully this was just once during our stay there.

there was at least one person at reception the entire time who assisted with receiving deliveries, queries about stationery and helping explain how the coffee machines worked! yes, there is a kitchenette area plus a large fridge. We didn't need it, but we had use of an i.t. server room, plus there was a fully-fitted-out gym downstairs too. with the security system in place we could gain access outside of office hours too, so we weren't shut out in case of emergency, not at all.

location-wise, the office is just a few minutes' walk from a bakery and an indian restaurant, plus a chinese and italian just a little further, plus a supermarket and filling station.

but for us the best thing was its central location being equidistant for those coming regularly to the office and it allowed us both operate efficiently and effectively while, at the same time, planning for the future.

thank you, janice and your team!

i wanted to thank b.u.r.o.s. for the office services and hard work. you have helped us tremendously and made it possible for us to grow our company in a very short space of time.

the professionalism, expediency and accuracy of the office services provided are very impressive, especially as we are out on business a lot.

it is hard to quantify but suffice to say it gave us enormous confidence and allowed us to go about our business development without worrying about the phones, the post etc.

i will not hesitate to recommend b.u.r.o.s. to anybody requiring these services.

as a new businessperson to luxembourg, i was very surprised by the high cost and very restrictive terms associated with leasing office space and i thought to myself, how am i going to launch a new business where a large portion of my revenue would be going to leasing office space, this made no sense to me and i knew that i had to find an alternative that both understands and appreciates the nature of starting a new business, this is when i found janice and b.u.r.o.s.

janice was a breath of fresh air, who truly cared about trying to come up with a creative way for me to lease office space in luxembourg. she offered flexibility, attractive terms and cost, and provided a work environment that was both professional and friendly. it is with the highest of recommendations that i recommend janice and b.u.r.o.s. to any business that needs flexible, cost-effective terms for their office space needs.  working with janice and her team has truly been one of the most pleasant business arrangements i have had during my professional career.
