Virtual PA services are a great way for businesses to save money and increase productivity, however, some still don’t know just how beneficial they can be. Here are 5 common myths about virtual PA services – debunked:

SmartPA debunks myths about virtual PAs

1. Virtual PAs are like call centres – you can expect a low-quality service.

It is true, you can find some low-quality virtual PAs, however, we would always advise businesses to check that their PA is fully trained. SmartPA offers support from an expert team that is fully accredited.

2. It is obvious to others when you are using virtual PA services – they do not fit seamlessly into your brand.

The right service provider should be able to think, act and behave like an employee. The SmartPA team are all trained to fit seamlessly into any business.

3. Remote PA services are unreliable. If your assistant is on holiday or sick, you will be left unsupported.

This can also be true of some virtual PA service providers, however, businesses should choose a supplier who has a network of PAs that will always be there to support them. SmartPA have a network of over 150 partners throughout the UK which means they will be continuously supported.

4. You will be confined to your virtual PA’s individual skill set.

A high-quality service provider should be able to give their clients access to more than one PA’s skill set. For example, SmartPA can give access to a wide team of personal assistants from a variety of different skill sets – some from multilingual professionals to those with a medical or legal background.

5. You are better just employing a PA.

A remote PA can offer substantial cost savings: no holiday or sickness pay, no desk space, no PAYE to name but a few. Additionally, a good remote service provider should be able to offer the flexibility their client needs.
