Some Of The Tasks Our VAs Can Handle

The subject of what a virtual assistant can do for you is one we’ve covered quite broadly in past blog posts but this time we’re going to look at some of the specific tasks they can complete. Many of these tasks are quite simple, but time-consuming tasks that you may currently do yourself. Using a virtual assistant will give you more time to do more important things and allow for better expansion of your business.

Telephone answering – Our telephone answering service is available separately but is fully integrated into our virtual assistant offerings. Whether you want messages to be taken and delivered to you by either SMS or email, calls to be screened and forwarded to you, or a combination of the two options, Need More Time can help you.

Diary management – Our assistants are experienced with a whole range of different diary management systems or can be trained to use any in-house system you may use. They can schedule and move around appointments for you and make sure you know where you should be and when.

Client and supplier communications – Our assistants will be fully versed on you and your business practices in order to be able to effectively communicate with clients, suppliers and other parties on your behalf. This means worrying about taking a morning or afternoon off will be a thing of the past.

Order handling – If you are a business offering goods to customers, our virtual assistants can take and process orders for you over the phone or by email. The assistant will have all of the knowledge on your business that is required so as to not be recognisable as a third party. Customers will feel like they are placing an order directly with you.

Document preparation and sending – The vast majority of business communications are done electronically these days and of course we can do all of this for you. If you do need to send out physical documentation though, we can handle this too. Whether it’s quotes, letters or invoices our assistants will take control of the printing, preparation and postage for you.

These are just a few of the tasks that a virtual assistant could do for you. We will cover more in future blog posts, but the possibilities are many and varied. Anything you can think of that you would expect from a virtual assistant service is more than likely available from Need More Time.
