Michael Pretorius is the owner of CT Floors, a rapidly expanding specialist industrial and commercial flooring company focused on seamless concrete protection systems. Michael is as passionate about delivering value as he is about finding solutions to complex challenges for his industry-leading clients. He is the consummate Entrepreneur with a constant eye on expansion and a gift for extracting the best from employees by empowering them through creating the opportunity for self-improvement.
There was just one area of his business where Michael needed a better solution than a permanent employee, as he found he was so busy he was literally swamped with admin and tasks that he knew were eating into his time of running and expanding his business.
He needed someone who would understand the intricacies of his business without hiring another permanent employee, who would be a liability and would not always be busy enough to a warrant a fulltime salary, leave pay, bonuses etc.
Michael found his ‘concrete’ solution in an expert V.A service that would handle many tasks and get paid only for what they specifically executed for him. With their motto ‘It’s about time’ V-Assist did exactly what this promises by assisting Michael with daily communication with the site foremen, suppliers and Michael himself.
Just like a trusted member of staff they check in with everyone every morning (via a WhatsApp group) and check what may be needed for the day. They are asked to carry out the ordering of material, send the PO, get the invoice to Michael for payment, find out when the materials are meant to be ready, and collect if the staff themselves can’t go.
V-Assist reminds the contractors to collect (or get it delivered where possible) and ensure they do not lose valuable time on site. They will even send weather reports if they know the crew are on a weather-dependent job, so they know if they should take any precautions. The team then decide if they can or cannot proceed with laying the floor. Of course, rain is always a problem with outside jobs, so this needs to be carefully monitored.
Michael is one of the many people who are in a trade-related business that is being ably assisted by V-Assist. We understand exactly what issues tradespeople like Plumbers, Builders, Electricians and many more face and we have a wide range of services to save them the time they need to be working ‘on’ their businesses and not ‘in’ it.
