Admin tasks you don’t need to do yourself...
If you’re running a small business, there never seems to be enough hours in the day. There are so many things to concentrate on that take up your time. Many of these seemingly small tasks can take hours, preventing you from focusing on growing your business and helping it thrive.
But it doesn’t need to be this way! In today’s increasingly connected world, you can outsource many of those time-consuming admin tasks, leaving you free to do what you do best. Here are a few tasks that you can outsource to a trained and trusted professional.
1. Answering and transferring phone calls
A ringing phone shows that people are interested in the products or services that you offer. However, when you only have a small team, sometimes phone calls get missed, leaving customers frustrated as they are forced to leave a message.
You can solve this problem by outsourcing your telephone answering. You will have a dedicated professional who will guarantee to answer all your calls and transfer them to the appropriate person. This keeps your customers happy and sets you apart from other businesses, many of whom are only contactable by email or chatbot. Your customers will always appreciate being able to speak to a real human being every time.
2. Recording daily incoming and outgoing transactions
Keeping on top of your finances can be a major challenge for any small business. You need to keep a close eye on how much money is coming in and going out. This can take up a significant chunk of your day, leaving you less time to generate more profit.
Your simple, routine bookkeeping tasks can be outsourced to someone with the right skills and experience. Having your incoming and outgoing transactions recorded for you every day makes it easier to stay in control of your business accounts.
3. Updating internal organisation documents
From screening potential employees through to data protection, staff records, and so much more, the internal organisation of your business takes time. If you’re a busy start-up, you might not even have had the opportunity to put the right systems and procedures in place. This can make it difficult to keep track of everything.
Have you thought about outsourcing some of your internal organisation? By trusting an experienced professional to update your documents, you can ensure that your business is adhering to best practices at all times, as well as complying with the law.
4. Dictating meeting notes
Meetings are essential for internal communication and attracting external investment. But it is vitally important that all stakeholders have accurate information about what has been discussed. Dictating or typing up meeting minutes takes time that you don’t have. So, why not outsource this monotonous task?
Our team is trained in dictating and typing up meeting notes to the highest standards of accuracy. All attendees — and those who couldn’t be there — will have a true and complete record of what was discussed and decided, so you won’t need to worry.
