Workplace Plus Limited, operators of the Regus franchise in West Africa, has unveiled a cluster initiative that will offer Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) the benefit of maximising profit in Nigeria’s current harsh economic environment.

The initiative, which is the first of its kind, brings companies under one operating environment with the necessary infrastructure that will enhance business development.

Speaking about the initiative, Executive Chairman of the company, Ayo Akinmade explained that the firm, which was registered in Nigeria in 2003, engages in the business of providing infrastructure to support companies to carry out their businesses seamlessly in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Accra Ghana.

Akinmade noted that one of the challenges of business operations in Nigeria is inadequate provision of infrastructures which include electricity, information technology and a conducive working environment to facilitate business contacts, development and capacity to promote efficiency.

He said the company is the largest provider of virtual office space in Nigeria, providing over 150 customers with office and related facilities from grade A buildings.
