Buffalo, NY, September 21, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Small business owners, solo professionals, and entrepreneurs are partnering with Virtual Assistants for their administrative support needs, allowing them more time to invest in their businesses. A Virtual Assistant (VA) is an independent service provider who supports his or her clients remotely, typically from their home based office. VAs are highly skilled and excel in the well-known areas of administrative support. Many offer specialized services such as bookkeeping, desktop publishing, and website design. Using today’s technology, Virtual Assistants are not required to work on-site. Tasks are completed on their own equipment and returned electronically via e-Mail or fax.
Shannon Abbott, Owner of The Virtual Vantage, has joined the rapidly expanding field of Virtual Assistants. Established in July 2007, The Virtual Vantage’s mission is to work in partnership with each client to help them achieve their business objectives. Ms. Abbott accomplishes this by alleviating the routine administrative tasks from the business owner, which allows him or her to focus entirely on expanding their business and generating income.
“The concept of Virtual Assistance is relatively new to the Buffalo, NY area. Business owners and solo professionals in WNY are spending their valuable time performing their own administrative duties because they can’t afford to hire an administrative assistant, or simply don’t have the office space available. What they don’t realize is that by spending a mere 2 hours a day on routine tasks isn’t saving them money, but costing them a loss of revenue instead. The benefits of collaborating with a VA are immense. The business owner receives experienced support and doesn’t have the costs associated with hiring an administrative assistant as an employee.”
Small business owners & solo professionals in the Western New York area profit from working with skilled, experienced professionals such as Shannon, who has over 15 years expertise backing her services. Ms. Abbott holds a degree in Office Technology from Erie Community College, and is an active member of several Virtual Assistant organizations, including the Virtual Assistant Chamber of Commerce (VACOC).
