No, and that is exactly why Outsourcing is ideal for any company. Whether you need a single agent working 8 hours a day, 5 days a week or 50 agents working 7 days a week, outsourcing gives you that flexibility.
Now, we know, the next question will be, “Will it cost me more if I only need one or two agents?” and once again the simple answer is, no. At ARC we determine your rates based on skill level and service requirements of each agent not the number of agents you require.
In fact, it has been proven that outsourcing whilst in the initial start-up stages of your business dramatically speeds up your overall growth rate. Why? Outsourcing firstly reduces your initial costs and secondly, outsourcing allows you and your core team to focus on the growth and development of your company whilst ARC takes care of the day to day customer service, sales and other back-office operations.
If you’re an entrepreneur just starting out, the difference between paying $3000 for an assistant and $1500 for a Virtual Assistant based in South Africa is not a small amount. In fact, it may not even be possible for some business because they don’t have that extra $3000 per month plus the space and all the other additional costs (extra office supplies, furniture, added electricity costs, benefits, etc) needed to hire an assistant. That extra $1,500 could spell the difference between bankruptcy and taking your business to the next level.
