Overworked? Outsource to a Transcription Company!

Staff Sickness
Even the most loyal and hardworking members of staff get sick and need time off at some point in their careers. However, this can be a real problem for both small and large businesses alike, as sickness often strikes with little warning and has the potential to take out half your workforce in one fell swoop. Leaving you to find last minute cover or meaning you have to take on the extra work yourself. Hiring a temp is often not the most viable option due to the time it takes to arrange and the hefty cost. Online virtual assistant and transcription companies can really save your bacon in these situations! By outsourcing your work to an online secretarial service company, you will save money (charges are by the hour or minute) and can arrange cover with little or no notice.
Tight Deadlines
If you are under the stress of a tight work deadline, it can feel like there are just not enough hours in the day. When things get really bad you may even find yourself coming home, only to work late into the night. This doesn’t need to be the case with the help of an online virtual assistant or transcription service. Many of these companies will work on your projects overnight and are used to meeting tight deadlines and working under pressure. So why not put your feet up, safe in the knowledge that you work will be completed quickly, affordably and without the stress!
Staff Holidays
Everyone loves a holiday, it means time to unwind, relax and enjoy what life’s really about. Only problem is, life can be stressful if you’re the one who is left behind at work! A workplace that is understaffed can be difficult, as you are now faced with making up for an extra 40 hours or more per week while someone is on holiday. Many companies don’t bother to find cover, but this can mean that work standards drop due to permanent staff being overworked and this is really a false economy. One of the best (and cheapest) solutions is to use an online virtual assistant or transcription company to assist with the extra work and provide cover as and when it is needed.
Busy Season
Some businesses and companies are seasonal, meaning that whilst they may be quiet for most of the year, other times of the year are frantic! If you run a business like this, it is often not practical or viable to take on permanent staff, just for the busy season. One solution is to take on a temp, but this can be costly, as many agencies will add a hefty profit to their rates. This is not the case with an online assistant or transcription company, as their rates only include hours or minutes worked, so you are never charged for someone to sit around the office with nothing to do.
Latest Technology
One of the best things about a virtual assistant or transcription company is that in order to keep up with the competition, they will always be proficient in the latest technology and will also use their own equipment. Using an online secretarial service or transcription company can give you a significant edge over your competitors, as they struggle to pay for the latest training courses and the best equipment, all of which will be at your disposal as and when you need it.
