The lockdown from the COVID-19 pandemic left many business people feeling helpless and redundant. Tradesmen, in particular, felt the pinch as they could not go into homes or onto sites other than for emergencies.
As we phased back to normality, many had huge backlogs and had made office staff, who no longer seemed to be relevant, redundant. This meant that when they got busy again many contractors were overwhelmed with admin and various other tasks that just slowed them down.
We have, throughout this month, been posting articles, giving case studies and examples of the many ways that a good Virtual Assistant can really help contractors of all kinds.
Our A, B, C of how we can help you…
First and foremost, good Virtual Assistants are whiz kids when it comes to admin. Keeping your diary and setting appointments, responding to e-mails and handling every aspect of the day to day running of your business.
This also includes things like placing orders with suppliers, issuing POs and compliance certificates and the filing of paperwork against various jobs.
Little point in us assisting you to make more money if you don’t collect it, so billing is one of our specialities. This includes issuing invoices, following up on outstanding payments as well as setting up payments on the bank for the business owner to release. We will also arrange to have your tax matters and bookkeeping done expertly for you if required.
For Tradesmen, communication, not only with clients but with suppliers and teams, is vital and something that not all owners have time for. Your V.A should be able to make customer care calls, liaise between your teams and in the case of V-Assist we are so versatile that we even issue weather reports for contractors working outdoors and handle what is known a ‘filling the pipeline’ – e.g. if a Pools contractor replaces a client’s filter sand once a year we set it up as a recurring appointment and remind the contractor.
