Work and office spaces should never be an issue when expanding capacity or moving offshore.

If your business seeks to ramp up capacity in a snap, consider NEARSOL’s SLaaS (Seat Leasing as a Service)

What is SLaaS (Seat Leasing as a Service)?

Seat Leasing as a Service (SLaaS) is a business arrangement in which a business rents office space and equipment, such as workstations or seats.

In essence, your business rents a fully equipped office space.

If a company is unwilling or unable to make a significant investment in building a new office location, NEARSOL’s seat leasing service is a viable option.

Seat leasing services in Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) may be divided into two types: cold seats and warm seats. Cold seat rental includes a variety of office essentials such as computers, internet access, furniture, and other facilities. Warm seats, on the other hand, include additional staff to successfully carry out other functions that include (but are not limited to) administrative, human resources management, and accounting.

A significant number of NEARSOL’s clients have scaled their business globally without making significant investments in traditional infrastructure thanks to the SLaaS business model.

Thus, NEARSOL’s clients include BPOs as well. In brief, we are the BPO for BPOs who need to expand capacity in a snap.

SLaaS is fast becoming a business solution of choice the world over owing to its many perks and benefits. This solution is less expensive than renting office space since customers who lease seats pay monthly for a complete package that includes fully furnished office space, appropriate software and hardware, and trained agents. In addition, lack of space is never an issue. 

Almost any business model may benefit from a broad range of outsourcing strategies and service combinations (including seat leasing).


NEARSOL’s Seat leasing as a service (SLaaS) helps you avoid the high costs of constructing a new facility outright by offering fully functional, complete spaces on demand.

Seat Leasing’s main focus is to provide a fully operational and furnished office space.

This way, you can scale up or down depending on your needs in a cutting-edge facility, all while keeping full operational control.

Businesses now have a wide variety of models and service combinations to choose from. The optimal solution for your company will always depend on your specific requirements, available funds, and return on investment goals. 

Businesses that often profit the most from a seat leasing arrangement include:

  1. ONLINE SHOPPING PLATFORMS – The Philippines has embraced online shopping via prominent platforms such as Lazada and Shopee. The list can only become longer. One critical factor influencing the development and success of these platforms is the presence of a centralized and well-structured workforce that can easily scale up or down as needed, without the need for extensive training or significant investments in physical infrastructure for marketing items, responding to customer inquiries, managing orders, and tracking them, among other tasks.
  1. BPOs – The emergence of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) organizations that cater especially to the requirements of other BPO firms is a phenomenon that often stuns outsiders. The Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sector has enormous growth potential owing to its inherent ease of entry. To properly engage with clients, crucial components are required, including a stable internet connection, experienced personnel, a thorough data security system, and the ability to expand at a moment’s notice. Several BPOs may swiftly extend their operations thanks to their ability to outsource their own outsourced services.
  1. VIRTUAL ASSISTANCE – Virtual Assistance clients often express a preference for a team with real office space since it gives them peace of mind about the availability of required infrastructure, backup internet, and data security protocols. Furthermore, most consumers want a specific “address” and staff to whom they may express questions or concerns. In this scenario, a seat leasing arrangement seems to be the most appropriate solution. Seat leasing allows business owners to satisfy demand and capacity needs, whether by renting equipment or hiring a whole workforce.
  1. LOGISTICS – Originally, the term “logistics” refers to how military personnel procured, stored, and transported equipment and supplies. The phrase is now widely used in business to describe how resources are handled and transmitted across the supply chain, particularly by manufacturers. Tracking, monitoring, and responding to order questions are key tasks that are best done via a centralized system. NEARSOL’s SLaaS allows businesses to scale up or down in response to demand changes. A seat leasing option offers a great level of freedom.
  1. REAL ESTATE – The Philippines’ real estate industry, although not as large as its foreign equivalents, has the potential to profit substantially from the development of a centralized staff in charge of receiving phone queries, processing paperwork, and monitoring property listings. However, a seat leasing service ensures that the person in charge of responding to any request is well-versed in the necessary training, software, and hardware, allowing for flawless operational execution from the start. Only a few BPOs (like NEARSOL) have this competence.
    The list above is, of course, a small sample of enterprises that have used seat leasing services supplied by reputable business process outsourcing (BPO) providers in the Philippines. 

NEARSOL is equipped to provide temporary space for businesses that need to start operations while simultaneously building their own HQ (swing space).

Swing spaces are temporary office spaces companies (or even teams) can use while their permanent office is being built or renovated. If your company is upsizing, moving, resizing, renovating, or even dealing with circumstances such as water or flood damage, trust that a NEARSOL swing space can fit your requirements.

At NEARSOL, clients can expect a dedicated reception area, exclusive production space, training rooms, office spaces, huddle rooms, an assigned recruitment area, a cafeteria, conference rooms, data centers, and even KTV or pool rooms. 

NEARSOL offers hub and spoke spaces that allow clients to locate agents as they work near home.

Clients are well supported if they so decide on a hybrid workspace. With a majority of their agents working from home, “hub and spoke” clients are able to have small offices across the countryside for agents to work from home or near home. 

Also, with the work culture and top management nurturing an HR and tech-forward approach, NEARSOL no longer uses the traditional setup of whole floor takers.  Depending on the client’s requirements, the client can divide and design office space on an as-needed basis.

With the SLaaS option, NEARSOL can offer fully functional workstations, inclusive of hardware and an IT team to support our clients at minimal cost (other providers are more expensive) Our sites are specifically built to cater to scaling businesses – fully equipped with training space and interview rooms

NEARSOL’s SLaaS offers highly flexible terms versus the traditional five-year minimum lease. 

No other BPO can match this agility when it comes to support staff, facility management, IT support, and housekeeping. 

Further, as opposed to needing a few months lead time, with NEARSOL, clients’ start dates can be arranged within just a few days or weeks’ notice.

IT equipment, PCs, and data center equipment with high data security are outfitted to fit the client’s needs.  The white glove portion of this service includes ample design and branding that are tailor-fit to client requirements.

With your business geared towards beating the competition, office space should be the least of your problems.
