Davinci Preferred Network Partner Rockefeller Group Business Centers Realizes Increased Revenues and Higher Margins

Rockefeller Group Business Centers touts three workspace locations in prime New York City real-estate: Rockefeller Plaza, Fifth Avenue, and Wall Street.

In its three New York City locations, Rockefeller Group Business Centers provides fully serviced office space, executive suites, virtual office plans, and meeting rooms.

 Joining the Davinci Preferred Partner Network

Seeking ideas on how to increase capacity and grow its revenues and profitability, Rockefeller Group Business Centers elected to join the Davinci Preferred Partner Network a little more than seven years ago. “Initially, when I signed up with Davinci, I was skeptical about what results could be achieved,” says David Jakubowski, the director of sales and marketing for Rockefeller Group Business Centers. “But with no upfront costs and Davinci assuming ownership of advertising and marketing, I figured there wasn’t anything to lose.”

Mobile That Connects with Customers

Mobile usage continues to skyrocket. Last year, 33 percent of web traffic was generated from mobile devices, a number that is projected to hit 39 percent this year.

The impact of mobile is far-reaching when it comes to how work is performed. A recent study reveals that 44 percent of workers check their mobile devices at least 40 times each day for email and to pick up incoming phone calls. And while the majority of workers indicate mobile improves their productivity and saves them one to two hours a week in time, they also note that they work outside of the office one to two hours every day. And while about one-third believe their mobile devices improve their work-life balances, about the same percentage believe they actually have negative repercussions.

U.S. workers logged 455 million trips for business in 2015, a number expected to increase by nearly four percent in 2016. Remote work is certainly becoming the norm and not the exception. For road warriors, they may spend only 10 to 15 hours per week in their office, with the rest of their time spent traveling and meeting with prospects and customers.

7 Ways to Stay Ultra-Productive on the Road

I’m writing this blog post on an airplane. I travel a lot and I’ve had to learn tips and tricks to stay productive while I’m in the air, on the road, or otherwise out of the office. After nearly two years of living a hard core road warrior lifestyle, I’ve come up with these seven tips to keep you productive just about anywhere you happen to be.

  1. Always Fly Wi-Fi-Enabled Planes: Virtual office and mobile technologies help—but not if you don’t have Wi-Fi. Delta has the largest fleet of Wi-Fi-enabled planes but other airlines have this feature also. Be sure to ask about Wi-Fi when you book, especially if you are taking a flight over two hours. You can get a mass amount of work done from the comfort of your economy seat.
