CALEDON EAST, ON. - Your business is growing, which is good, but you're overwhelmed with administrative tasks, which is not so good. Being so bogged down with so many assignments can take your focus away from the most important projects. This type of scenario is becoming all too common in today's marketplace. So, what can you do to alleviate the workload, and some of the pressure while you're at it?

The solution is a simple one: hire an off-site or virtual assistant.

What is a virtual assistant, you ask? Well, in short, a virtual assistant is one that assists another with their tasks but isn't physically present when performing the work. This type of business relationship is becoming increasingly in demand, especially with the ease of today's technology.

Hiring a virtual assistant to help with the administrative tasks provides a multitude of benefits for the busy business person.

First, and foremost, it gives the client access to help when it is needed without having to go through the whole hiring and laying-off process each time their workload gets a little out of hand. Having assistance, only a phone call away, gives the client the peace of mind that all is not lost (probably under a pile of paper).

Second, and probably the most beneficial to small businesses in particular, is the fact that outsourcing your administrative tasks to an off-site assistant can cost less than hiring a full-time, part-time or temporary employee. There is no need to spend the money hiring and training someone new. There is also no need to supply office space in your office to house an employee or the additional equipment. For that matter, there is no need to acquire that additional equipment that an employee would have to use. And, of course, there is no need to worry about source deductions, benefits, vacations or losing valuable hours due to sick time.

Other benefits include saving time that it normally takes to do these routine office tasks while more important tasks, such as pursuing new clients and finishing a vital assignment, sit on the back burner. Also, having a professional handling some of the paperwork will allow the client time to concentrate on running their businesses more smoothly and efficiently.

So where do you find such an assistant?

Well, one such company, located in Caledon East, is Docu-Type Administrative Services. Docu-Type specializes in word processing, desktop publishing and website development, all the areas that can overwhelm a business owner.

Janice Byer, founder of the company, brings over fifteen years of experience in both the small business and large corporate sectors. Of those fifteen years, she spent five running her father's successful lawn care company, so she knows what it is like to run a small business and all the setbacks that can occur.

"Running my father's company" she said, "allowed me to see how you can get bogged down and how it would be helpful to get a few extra hands every once in awhile. There were certain times of the year when I was working from 7 am to 10 pm, every day. I wish I had a virtual assistant during those times."

This type of scenario is all too common in today's business environment, especially in the small business sector. There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day or enough hands to get all of the work done.

"Our company offers help to those clients that may be feeling overwhelmed by the amount of office tasks that need to be done. We take some of the workload off of their shoulders which allows them to free up time to spend pursuing new clients or concentrating their efforts on other more important projects. And as we are not a permanent, in-house employee, the client saves a tremendous amount of money compared to if they had to hire, train, provide office space and equip a full-time employee. All in all we offer the perfect solution to overloaded business people."

Although Docu-Type is located in the beautiful, small town of Caledon East, Ontario they have a client base that spans locally from Brampton to Bolton, and as far as Orangeville. They also have a website ( which allows them to help clients all across North America.
