Working Intelligently

We've all heard the saying, "work smarter not harder." While good advice, this concept isn't always easy for entrepreneurs who like to control everything about their companies. 

By helping small business owners work intelligently, Intelligent Office paves an easier path toward faster growth, while freeing up irreplaceable time.

Focusing Your Talents

Most entrepreneurs boast unique talents that drive their companies forward. Unfortunately, when they get bogged down on tedious operational tasks, these talents are wasted. By providing highly-trained virtual assistants, Intelligent Office unchains small business owners and their staffs, so they are free to focus on the things that matter most.

Empowered by timely, executive-level support, small businesses gain an edge that allows them to focus on customer acquisition and retention, product development, marketing campaigns and other key organizational strategies that spur continued growth.

How Can a Business Work More Intelligently?

There are a number of essential, everyday operations that make a business work. That said, it makes no sense for expert business people and their trained staff to spend countless hours bogged down with tedious responsibilities. It's a waste of time. It's a waste of money. Perhaps most importantly, it's a poor way to allocate limited resources. If you or your staff has spent significant time working on any or all of the following, a virtual assistant makes a lot of sense.

  • Phone Answering

  • Scheduling Appointments

  • Taking Orders

  • Confirming Calls

  • Intake Questions

  • Taking Reservations

  • Gathering Survey Results

  • Travel/Seminar Registration

  • Coordinating Mailings and Media Campaigns

  • Answering Client Inquiries

  • Notary Services

  • Typing

  • Meeting Preparation

  • Managing Social Media

  • Conference Registration

  • Outbound Calling

  • Sales

  • Booking Medical Appointments

  • Following Up on Sales Leads

  • Ordering Personal Items

  • Reception Duties

Optimizing Your Operation

To sustain continued growth, a business needs its brightest, most talented people doing what they do best. By allowing you and your employees to focus on the biggest, most important goals, Intelligent Office give your company the edge it needs to stay ahead of the competition.
