Let’s face it we can plan to the nth degree, but each and every one of us simply cannot think of everything to cover every eventuality. In business, this becomes even more challenging when you are working alone as a sole trader or within a small team as part of a busy fast moving business.
Many of our clients fall into these two categories and I’ve found over the years that my team at Message Takers and I have heard clients say “I hadn’t thought of that…Thank you!” in response to assistance we’ve provided to them. This is because they are busy people, so we become a part of their team and work in a very process driven and methodical manner to complete a wide variety of administrative tasks on their behalf. Quickly noticing gaps in planning or situations where details may have been missed, forgotten about or overlooked by clients, because they are busy is quite commonplace for the team at Message Takers.
In many respects we become a sounding board for clients and when they are working under pressure we are on hand to keep them organised and fulfil the tasks they simply don’t have time to complete. Keeping lists, updating spreadsheets and logging information in an orderly fashion is just one of the many ways we can help. As our initial purpose is to answer phones, we can collate information from callers, register them for events, book them in for appointments, collect relevant details from them and so much more.
Essentially, many sole traders and fast moving businesses do not have the available funds to set up a dedicated team of their own to cover the workload and this is where Message Takers fits in perfectly for them as an affordable virtual office.
