The rise of virtual assistants
It is no secret technology is changing how businesses work and communicate. However, to what extent are we leveraging it to increase efficiency and benefit the bottom line?
Since the economic crisis, companies have taken a closer look at their finances and focused on minimizing costs. The combination of advanced technology and reduced budgets has triggered a rise in the number of virtual assistants (VA). Thousands of executives and managers have thus found value in employing VAs and entire businesses have developed to offer this professional service.
What is a VA?
A virtual assistant is an executive or personal assistant who manages all tasks and responsibilities remotely. One attends team meetings via webcam and remains in close communication through phone, email, or Skype.Détails
