I recently started using a new personal assistant service, and I’m blown away by its value. It’s no secret day-to-day business can generate countless tasks and action items. This is important stuff, but can easily distract us from the top goal which is income or income related activities…right? So what options do we have? Hiring someone to help can be costly. Let me introduce you to E.V.A. (Electronic Virtual Assistant). Simply speak to their system to add calendar events, client details, track expenses, log car mileage or even send emails. I know what you’re thinking “Voice recognition does not work!” E.V.A. does not use voice-recognition. A real-live human transcriptionist reviews and enters your data as directed from you!
This all happens from their call center. You can communicate with E.V.A. by simply talking into your phone or by using “E.V.A. Ear” which is an ordinary digital voice recorder that interfaces with E.V.A.’s Software. With this option you sync the “E.V.A. Ear” with your PC and the E.V.A. software transmits that data to the U.S.-based transcribers for completion. Everything that E.V.A. adds to their system (i.e. Expenses, Mileage, Calendar Items, Client data etc.) can sync with Microsoft Outlook.
You may be asking yourself “How’s the accuracy”? As I found it, E.V.A. is right-on. When they have a question, they ask before going forward. For example, I sent an email, and the transcriptionist did not understand a word I used. As a result, the email was simply sent to me for clarification. Once I did they sent it out. If you’re the type that wants to review everything, just let them know and you can review all emails before they are delivered.
OK, I know you curious about pricing. I was too! Pricing is similar to a cell phone plan. You can use minutes or get an unlimited plan. Take a look at pricing here.
