ABA22_spotlight Square-8Stevie-winner Virtudesk is a virtual assistant company that focuses on equipping business owners in a variety of industries and verticals with remote-working professionals from the Philippines.

Virtudesk's mission is to help business owners optimize and automate company systems and processes, teach them how to delegate responsibilities, and focus on revenue-earning activities. By leveraging well-trained virtual assistants, business owners can grow and scale their businesses at cost-effective rates. 

They offer competitive rates with a streamlined process and virtual assistants well-trained in business services such as marketing, administration, customer service, prospecting and inside sales, and real estate transaction coordination. 

In 2016, US-based real estate broker Pavel Stepanov was still working primarily in real estate when he realized the benefits of employing virtual assistants for his business. 

Prior to hiring assistants, he had been working 12 to 16 hours a day. Hiring a virtual Inside Sales Agent changed his life. He was able to delegate all the tedious administrative tasks that used to consume so much of his time and refocus his attention on building relationships. When he had his virtual assistant responsible for booking appointments, Pavel was able to almost triple his yearly revenue.

After seeing the results from his own experience, he started helping the agents in his brokerage hire virtual assistants. Then, he started Virtudesk to help more entrepreneurs. Starting with only one virtual assistant helping Pavel in 2016, Virtudesk has since grown by over 400%, employs hundreds of people, and serves all industries.

Virtudesk also prides itself on providing livelihood to hundreds of Filipinos. The company gives them an opportunity to work remotely, provides complete benefits, and nurtures professional growth in their role with international clients.
