As a VA I know that the most important thing when hiring one, is that you trust the person. It is important to consider what tasks you are going to be delegating, and ensuring the VA you hire has the skill set required for what you need. When people think about hiring virtual staff sometimes it is easy to think that maybe the communication will not be as good, or they feel like they won't be connected closely enough to that person. In this article I wanted to share with you some of the ways we work, the platforms we use and how exactly that benefits you.
Diary and time management
I want to make sure you are as using your time as efficiently as possible. I know it is hard to give up control but sometimes that is what is needed to do to take the next step with your business. By utilising a VA, a business can make sure it's meetings are as efficient as possible. We do not want you to waste 3 hours a day travelling from meeting to meeting when with a bit of diary management, it could be reduced to 1 hour. By utilising IGLO (our CRM system with built in mapping) alongside Google Calender, we have the ability to organise your days efficiently, reducing time wastage wherever possible. We can also book your travel there and meeting rooms/coffee shops when needed, as well as liaising with the second party for you.
Fed up of waking up to 200 plus emails each morning? How much time could you save by letting us in, sorting out the junk for you and ensuring you only see what you need to? We can either use an email alias, your details or use Lastpass as this allows you to give us access without revealing your passwords!
Managing projects and events can be stressful and time consuming. When we work with you on these, we need to make sure that we have excellent communication and visibility on each task. Trello is our project management software of choice as it gives us the ability to work directly with you, ensuring we are both working simultaneously and not duplicating work. We cover a wide range of events, conferences and larger scale projects such as refurbishments, so why not get an extra set of hands on board?
Using Xero, IGLO or your own CRM system, we ensure no payments are missed. We aim to reduce financial losses from disorganisation and mistakes by keeping you on top of your incoming and outgoing payments.
These are just some of the services that are offered through Girl Planner, alongside the platforms we use to ensure visibility and communication is there. We are of course always able to pick up the phone and send a quick Whatsapp! To find out more about other services we offer. Click here.
