Most people running small businesses are familiar with the situation. The more business they do, the more time they have to spend on administration and then they have less time to spend on running and developing the business. This rollercoaster ride is a real issue for all but the larger organisations who can afford to employ people to focus purely on their specific tasks. But these days companies like Business Visions can provide clients with a range of services that allow small business owners to concentrate on doing what they do best and enjoy the most - growing their business.
 
   
     
 
 

SO WHY USE BUSINESS VISIONS / A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT (VA)

Most people running small businesses are familiar with the situation. The more business you do, the more time you have to spend on administration and then you have less time to spend on running and developing the business. This roller coaster ride is a real issue for all but the larger organisations who can afford to employ people to focus purely on your specific tasks. However, companies like Business Visions can provide customers with a range of services that allow small business owners to concentrate on doing what you do best - growing your business.

Consider this for a moment - finding (and keeping) a good Personal Assistant can be a tough job these days - but is there a more cost effective and efficient alternative to hiring a temp or an additional employee? Itís not always as simple as employing another person. You may not want an extra overhead. You may not have the office space. For many small businesses, the answer is now a Virtual Assistant (VA)

The good news is that there has been a revolution in the secretarial world. It is so significant that even the national newspapers have been making regular references to it for some time now, although the top-level managers, and more small and medium size enterprises are now realising the full implications! A virtual assistant works from a home-based office for a wide variety of customers. The most significant advantage to this way of working for the SME is that the VA is able to plan her own working day and not be Ďtied to the deskí at slower times whilst being perfectly happy to continue working late into the evening or starting early in the morning in order to fulfil the needs of the customer.

Generally, a VA does everything a PA would do - from telephone answering, typing, report-writing, conference planning, arranging travel itineraries, managing regular customers, audio transcription, raising invoices, setting up databases and sending faxes, diary management - the only difference being that the VA is not physically in your office, taking up your space or using equipment providing by you!

Using a VA is an attractive option for companies or individuals with limited space or working from home themselves, who do not want a full-time employee or for individuals who travel frequently. The VA will be prepared to work outside the regular 9 to 5 office hours making them extremely valuable to the businessman who travels or who would like to take time out of the normal working day to be with family or follow a sport or hobby.

Having your own personal VA is more effective than hiring a Ďtempí - the most widely used short term solution. When you hire a temp, you pass on your requirements to an agency and, if youíre lucky, youíll have somebody suitable, but more usually youíll be sent whatís available. This may be very different to what you actually need - which means that time-consuming training may be required. Also, as it is standard practice to hire by the day or week, you may well find that youíre paying for the temp to be in your office when thereís little actual work to do.

Many business owners feel that you should be able to do everything now that you have a personal computer and you feel you should be able to manage your own business documents without help. Whilst you may hire accountants to handle finances, you may feel guilty about hiring someone to deal with the day-to-day administration. However, these days clever small businesses are boosting their income by outsourcing more and more. A VA can free your time to run your business more efficiently and let you work on the growth of your business - in other words, leaving you free to do what you do best.

BUSINESS VISIONS SERVICES

A business solutions service is an invaluable resource to small companies, providing a variety of business support services from off-site locations using personal experience and technology to its very best.

The reasons for using our services vary from customer to customer. Some like the idea of not having to pay the usual employee taxes, benefits etc. Others have businesses that only require several productive hours of support each week, and therefore cannot justify the expense of hiring employees. Sometimes, seasonal or special projects require additional manpower, and others need long-term assistance until their company expands sufficiently to be able to afford the costs of additional staff, and even then often return to us for additional support.

Business Visions offers your business a full range of office support services at a fraction of the cost of hiring an employee or temporary worker. You only pay for the hours worked or the agreed fixed rate. Business Visions provides a professional relationship working with you to achieve success in your business.
