They are fully-equipped with infrastructure and workstation containing everything today’s entrepreneur could need – high-speed internet, administrative support, cleaning services, receptionist, meeting rooms, free business consultation, etc.
Users can come in and go out anytime during the building’s opening hours.
Cekindo understands that quite a lot of businesses require a private office space due to their particular field or industry.
As you would expect, private office space is an office which is private. It all really comes down to what best suits your start-up business in Indonesia if you’re choosing between a private office and a co-working space.
Unlike co-working space, you have more privacy, and that can lead to higher productivity if your job requires a lot of concentration and focus.
You will get a key or will need a password to access to your private office. This way you can be sure that nobody else will enter the office and you can build your working environment.
A co-working office in Indonesia is also a serviced office but different from private office space. Co-working spaces have all shapes and sizes with an emphasis on collaboration and networking. They are physical spaces offered to businesses and entrepreneurs under different configurations.

It does not have the physical space in which you can work in. However, the fee you pay for the virtual office would cover services such as call and mail handling, reception service, meeting and conference room, and most importantly a prestigious physical location address needed for your domicile letter.
