Most small businesses experience times when there is either a sudden increase in customer orders or they slow down. This makes hiring employees costly overall. One of the ways to solve such challenges is to hire a local dedicated logistics virtual assistant. Logistics VA can complete the usual logistics based tasks remotely and can be hired on an ‘as and when’ basis – meaning you get the help when you need it.
The benefits are:
A Virtual Assistant will allow you to respond quickly and efficiently to such sudden changes. As a small business owner, you will be able to get timely professional assistance by placing an order with your local VA to do a required job only. It is ok if you need extra hours one week and have a quiet spell another week. A VA charges only for actual time spent on each task.
- Improved Customer Service.
A VA will help you to provide high quality customer service at all times, even when you do not have time to do it yourself. Your customers will be able to get updated information and feel satisfied.
A VA will keep track of all information for your business such as invoicing, costs etc and will keep an eye on your expenses and budget.
- Business Promotion.
Having a vast experience in this field, a VA will help you to get new business contacts, suppliers and customers.
Hiring a logistics VA is cost-effective when compared to hiring employees, as there is no need to pay other costs related to recruitment such as training, sick pay, holiday pay, pension contributions costs etc.
- Business Expansion.
Most logistics VAs are fluent in two or more languages. Choosing a VA with a language you need could help to expand your business abroad.
Using a local VA will allow you to communicate easily and will guarantee that all your information is protected.
