Recent articles revealed the benefits of seat leasing and how it is one key to unlocking business potential.

Now, if you’re ready to elevate your offshore or remote team through seat leasing, this article will provide valuable insights.

There are three types of seat leasing—Warm, Cold, and Co-working—each catering to different business needs. Discover which option is best suited for your team.

Warm Seat Leasing

  • Warm Seat Leasing is a fully operational setup environment. This means that everything is already set up and ready for immediate use.

    This type of leasing typically includes workstations with computers, internet connectivity, pantry access, office furniture, and sometimes even other necessary equipment.

    In terms of transition, warm seat leasing can be more efficient. You can transition quickly and begin operations immediately, as the infrastructure and necessary resources are already in place.

    In terms of cost, this option can be more expensive than the other two options due to the comprehensive services and equipment provided.

    Typical Use Cases:

    Ideal for businesses looking to expand rapidly, start-ups needing immediate operational capability, or companies setting up temporary projects.

Cold Seat Leasing

  • Cold Seat Leasing is similar to warm seat leasing, but the workstations are not staffed with support personnel. This provides only the basic setup or the physical space with basic infrastructure. This often includes the office space and other essential utilities such as internet, electricity, and more that align.

    This type of leasing often does not include computer setup or other office equipment. The lessee is responsible for setting up their own equipment, making it more suitable for companies that already have their own equipment and prefer to use their own resources and support services.

    Cost-wise, this is generally more cost-effective.

    Typical Use Cases:

    Suitable for businesses that want to set up their own infrastructure, companies with existing IT resources, or those looking to save costs by only leasing the physical space.

Co-Working Space Seat Lease

  • Co-working seat leasing allows employees from different companies to share a common workspace, making it ideal for small teams or remote hires. It provides access to office amenities like reception, pantry, and conference rooms without requiring investment.

    This offers a community-driven environment that encourages networking, collaboration, and social interaction among diverse professionals.

    Typical Use Cases:

    Suitable for freelancers, entrepreneurs, and small teams seeking a flexible, communal workspace with amenities and networking opportunities.

Leading global companies that outsource operations to the Philippines can achieve up to 70% savings on operational costs. The country’s low living expenses and competitive wages allow for enhanced operational efficiency and sustained positive cash flow.
