Virtual assistants are becoming more and more popular as outsourcing professionals. Nowadays, the technical possibilities available through software and fast internet connections have brought about a real increase in business process outsourcing (BPO).
Modern executives now take care of many tasks that were previously given to a secretary, and thanks to modern equipment such as smartphones, tablets, cloud services and business apps it can even be done on a larger scale. When it comes to tasks that are very repetitive or simple however, it is always best to delegate.
Virtual assistants for more productivity
Virtual assistants are so popular not only because they are affordable, but also because they are extremely flexible. As opposed to a permanent employee, you can assign tasks to a virtual assistant in small or large amounts. There are many employment possibilities, from just a few hours a month to nearly full-time employment, which can be billed then either on an hourly basis or at a fixed price for each individual task.
This flexible model also allows you to use designated professionals for specific jobs. If multiple virtual assistants are being used at the same time, they can even be organised into a team. If necessary, you can even create fixed work shifts for around the clock support for jobs that are time-critical.
Naturally, to successfully work with several virtual assistants in a team or for various individual jobs, a certain amount of management expertise is necessary. However, generally one begins with a single virtual assistant and the team them slowly grows from there. Even just one virtual assistant can affect productivity positively in such a way that you will soon want to expand upon this success model.
Virtual assistants from India
Virtual assistants from India are not only popular due to their cost. The Asian country is well-known for its low wages, but you will pay similar rates in other developing countries. However, India stands out from the rest thanks to its established outsourcing sector, English as the official language and the relatively high level of education in the IT branch. Statistics also reflect this: India currently holds a share of 55% of all IT outsourcing services in the world.
The competition among Indian outsourcing providers is also relatively large due to India’s huge population. It is therefore not particularly difficult to find more specific profiles for more exotic expertise.
