We're not robots but we do use a lot of tech

Behind the talented, helpful virtual assistants and our dedicated head office team is a whole lot of technology that helps set you up with the right virtual assistant.

It all begins with our Talent team members who leverage technology to review resumes, evaluate skillsets, and learn about what makes our virtual staff tick. It’s a lengthy process, but one we’re proud of because it ensures we’re selecting only the top virtual assistants to work with our clients.

From there, our complex matching algorithm considers the skills you’re looking for and the number of hours you need to help build your fractional remote team - whether that’s one additional person or a whole team.


You've got questions, we've got answers

What hours do virtual assistants work?

Our virtual assistants typically work conventional business operating hours: 8 am – 5 pm, Monday to Friday. Our experienced virtual assistants have the flexibility to set their own hours and will work with you to determine what works best for you and your needs. Because our virtual assistants don’t have a physical presence in your office and are located in Canada and the United States, their availability runs across time zones from AST to PST.

Where will my virtual assistant be located?

All of our virtual assistants work in remote locations across Canada and the United States. We’re proud to provide opportunities for onshore virtual assistants to earn a living wage and support our local economies.

How are virtual assistants assigned?

We know the importance of a perfect pairing. We curate the match between specialized virtual assistants and clients on our proprietary Talentplace based on many factors including: availability, location, personality and skill-set to best suit the services you need.

What can a virtual assistant do?

An experienced virtual assistant provides the same type of support as an administrative assistant, executive assistant or other office personnel, but they’re not physically located in your office. Your VA can provide virtual assistance with specific tasks like social media management, administrative tasks such as data entry and scheduling meetings, routine tasks like answering phone calls, and more. Your specialized VA (or team of VAs) can help with virtually any of your needs.
