My biggest challenge up to now during these years (more than 12) was not how to cope with cultural differences, meeting deadlines, or how to work between different time zones. My greatest challenge is to convince potential clients and companies from the countries that have older traditions in using freelancers, Virtual Assistants, etc. (i.e. USA, Canada, UK, etc.) that combination of great quality of services, flexible attitude and reasonable prices is not location dependent. Another challenge we face is helping the client to clarify what are his requirements and procedures for the project. Very often clients realize that they need to outsource some of their administrative projects but they have no practical experience in BPO or are afraid of delegating tasks to companies abroad. My company uses broad range of methods to overcome above challenges which I would like to share with you:
- Combination of prompt service, quality work, meeting deadlines, flexible and loyal attitude and reasonable prices;
- Testimonials from satisfied clients;
- Spread– of– word by current clients;
- Initial 3 hours FREE for new clients.
I believe that in the next 5– 10 years usage of remote administrative support should not be considered as a luxury but as daily or weekly necessity for companies. I consider outsourcing as a strategic partnership as it gives clients the opportunity to work smarter, not harder! Thank you!"
