Winnipeg, Canada, January 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Azure Virtual Assistant Services, brings one of the fastest growing industries—Virtual Assistance—to Manitoba’s First Nations and Métis business owners. As owner, Jacki Azure-Townsend, the first Métis virtual assistant in the province of Manitoba, provides contract administrative support to small businesses and professionals eliminating the costs of hiring employees or aggravation of finding temporary help.
Statistics Canada shows Aboriginal self-employment has grown nine times faster than any other sector in Canada since the 1980s. With the majority of these businesses operating with less than five employees, Azure Virtual Assistant Services is filling the need for affordable office management.
“We are here to look after the paper work and everyday tasks that would otherwise bog down a new or small company. Our help allows our clients to focus on what they do best-building their business and getting customers,” says Mrs. Azure-Townsend. Services offered by the company include document production, proofreading, editing, database maintenance, data entry, presentation and marketing design, graphic design, web development, research, clipping service, answering/screening services, organization and general secretarial duties.
The virtual assistance industry launched just over 10 years ago and continues to grow in number and demand. Downsizing caused by a troubled economy, environmental concerns and ever-changing technology has developed a niche market for outsourcing administrative needs. Utilizing the internet as the main delivery system allows virtual assistants to work remotely but still provide quality service quickly.
