Does the world really need another online business community? The folks at OfficeArrow (OA) are betting it does, having just launched what they're billing as a business support networking site for office professionals, including office managers, administrative assistants and small biz owners. It's a place for such folks to connect with one another, find vendors and seek solutions to everyday challenges. They boast that 50,000 members signed up in the pre-launch phase alone, and that membership is already at 80,000.
OA gives members a chance to talk with industry specialists and other office professionals to trade workplace tips and research solutions for such things as business travel, office equipment, finding discounts on office supplies and managing meetings. One nice feature of the site is its list of over 100 free templates that include everything from expense reports to emergency forms.
