Most outsourcing companies are simply connecting you with a virtual assistant, someone that typically works from his/her home as opposed to working in an office environment . These companies don’t get involved much beyond connecting you with a freelancer. While the concept of working from home is popular and successful in Western countries, it is challenging when hiring someone from developing countries like Philippines and India because of language barriers and unreliable internet connection.

We ensure they have all the necessary factors to succeed.

What if I need a virtual assistant with specific skill sets like Bookkeeping, or writing articles ?
We will go through our process of interviewing current assistants in our office and once we find a suitable VA, we will have you interview him/her. If he/she qualifies, they will be assigned to start working with you immediately.
Virtual Assistants in our office work with an internet speed of 15 Mbps, and the difference means a much faster and reliable internet connection. In a developing country, the regular internet speed restricts reliable connections. ( think dial up days ). The reason that most people have slow internet is not lack of availability, but the price of paying for internet there.. Considering income level, only working businesses offices tend to purchase high speed internet, which we provide for our virtual assistants in office.
Our virtual assistants are working 9 – 6 PM Philippines time ( with 1 hour lunch break ). This being said we understand some clients may have different requirements for working hours, and if you are looking to have a virtual assistant work during specific time zone ( EST, Central, Pacific, other) , you will be required to purchase the Full Time VP package. Philippines time has a 12 hr difference from EST.
