Recapping on six years in business

As September draws to a close, I’m taking some time to recap on six years in business with Outsource-Typing.

True story
I heard about the concept of “Virtual Assistants” on the Woman’s Hour radio programme back in 2010 whilst in a job I was undervalued and miserable at.  It saved my life!

I love my work and have learned and gained so much from doing it – personally and professionally.  I’m reading a book that puts forward the idea that no learned skill is wasted.  Experience gathered over the years in jobs – some good, some bad – all adds up and, if you are pushed hard enough to use your resources like I was, you might be surprised at the outcome.  I now have a business I am proud of and a team who are top-notch.  I still have to pinch myself sometimes!

We’re moving forward!
We’re glad that our users find our service helpful, and with the assistance of a great team we can carry on helping clients and continue to grow and welcome new ones without compromising quality.  Check out our client reviews.

Our team are UK-based, time-served, from secretarial and PA backgrounds and are thoroughly vetted prior to joining our team.  We respect confidentiality and have strict policies and procedures in place to keep your information and data safe.  We are also registered under the Data Protection Act.  All work passes through me as Head of Quality Control!  I am formally qualified in editing and proofreading, ensuring the finish is both professional and word-perfect.

How our service can work for you
If you’re considering how a virtual PA or transcription service (or both) may work for you, check out our guide Questions to ask your Virtual PA and let us know what your requirements are.  We can provide you with a detailed quote as well as a free sample of any audio work so you can see for yourself how it will work for you.  We aim to tailor the work to suit your requirements, but if you are unsure of how to approach a task we can offer reliable suggestions – you can rely on our combined and extensive industry knowledge to help get tasks delivered to you efficiently, excellently presented and with a high rate of accuracy.

We can also provide information on optimising quality of audio recordings during dictation or interviews, to include equipment tips, software and hardware recommendations, and any apps you can use to make recording tasks easier.
