What is a Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual Assistant is a professional who helps business owners with various tasks such as customer service, marketing, and organisational work. Construction companies tend to be the perfect fit to hire a VA and this is for many reasons. Business owners within the construction industry normally get into this line of work because they are experts at what they do but more often than not, the running a business side of things can slip out of hand, piles of paperwork start forming, invoices and quotes are not being sent, no one has any idea on where they are supposed to be, a shortfall on the managerial side cause a very strong collapse to an integral part of the business.

We have produce an article discussing: 70 ways a VA can help you.


Can a Virtual Assistant help your construction business?

A Saint Virtual Assistant is there to help manage your workload at an effective cost. The more work that you hand over to your VA the more use you are getting out of them and more importantly, the more time that you are saving to focus on more important tasks. The idea is that the VA will carry out the low value tasks on your behalf which will allow you to focus on the high level tasks a business owner should be concentrated help. A VA can help the progress and development of your business.

Of course, we have works with hundreds of construction companies across the Essex and we typically hear business owners saying:

This is what Saint VA solves for your business. When we first work with clients, we receive message 3 o’clock in the morning and we know exactly what they are going through. We are here to bring control to your business and a sense of relief that you can trust the work you give us is going to be completed.


Our best review we have got from a client is “that was the best night sleep I have had in ages”. There isn’t much more we can say about what we bring to businesses that that!


What size construction business can a Virtual Assistant help?

A Virtual Assistant can help businesses from start-ups to large organisations with both receiving different benefits. A VA can help start up companies as it is a cost effective solution to have staff working alongside their business from the beginning to help with growth. On the other hand a large organisation would have a VA working with selected individuals to help manage workload.


How does email management help?

Email management is one of them tasks that when you’re on site, it is the last thing you want to be managing. This is understandable however what information could you be missing out on? Our VA’s can manage your emails prioritising and sorting them that actually helps your business.

A VA can keep you updated throughout the day so you are always fully informed on your business position and keeping your clients happy. If there are any important emails, your virtual assistant will let you know that your attention is needed.


How does call handling help?

We have found that nearly 70% of construction businesses calls don’t get answered and typically this is where the sales are coming from… As a business owner you need to believe that every phone call is important as it could be a potential sale.

We understand that you could be in a middle of a job and can’t get to the phone however what about if you had the option to have your virtual assistant answer your calls in your company name in the way you want just like they were working for your company so your clients will not know the difference. Anything important we can patch it straight through to you!


Employee vs Virtual Assistant?

An virtual assistant can be used in the same way as an employee just without the need for office space, holiday/sick pay, training and are very often a lot cheaper! An employee is said to experience 56 interruptions a day and spend 2 hours in total recovering from the interruptions. With a virtual assistant you are only paying for the hours that are used to complete the tasks they are set out to do! A virtual assistant is the most cost effective solution for your business.


What software can a Virtual Assistant work with?

Our VA’s have experience in a wide range of softwares from general emails providers like gmail, outlook etc or appointment schedulers like calendly or acuity to the more advance construction specific softwares such as SIMpro, BuilderTrend, ServiceM8 or Tradify for example.

All our VA’s are software focused and trained so it wouldn’t take them long to learn how to use something new and take the task of your hands!
