What is a Virtual Assistant?

I often get the question – what is a virtual assistant?

To explain the concept, a virtual assistant is a person who provides services to other businesses from a remote location in exchange for an agreed-upon fee. Accordingly, the services offered are remarkably diverse, as detailed in the list of services.

Virteffic’s services are fully flexible and tailored to the needs of the client. You can use the services for a couple of hours as a one-off or choose to get regular support as frequently as you wish. You only pay for the time you require, and there will be no other costs such as overhead costs, insurance fees, social security, pension cost, etc. Virteffic simply raises an invoice in accordance with the agreed-upon fee and you can terminate the engagement at any time.  

Why would you need a virtual assistant?

If you are running a small business you may find that you are working long hours and that you never catch up on your to do list.

Hiring an additional staff member can be too costly, especially for a start-up. For instance, the salary, training cost, infrastructure, tax, social security and benefits may add up to huge expenses. 

Many larger businesses can benefit from having a virtual assistant due to the flexible nature of the engagement. The needs may be temporary or varied from time to time. Accordingly, you may not want to commit to an employee. Or you might be hiring a full time employee but need temporary cover during the recruitment process, or an extra pair of hands during busier periods.

Fear and uncertainty from the latest global challenge spells trouble for a lot of businesses and institutions across all sectors. In light of this, this may not be the time to hire a full time employee. However, the work is still there and needs to be done. Therefore, the concept of a virtual assistant was developed as a smarter and more cost-effective alternative.
