HOW IT WORKS
Need something done but don’t have the time or don’t know where to start? Would you like to have someone to talk to that understands business from your perspective and that you can rely on to make progress?
(according to our reviews)
Ceara says: “The Professionalisation team have been instrumental in assisting me with formulating and implementing a long term growth strategy for my business. From branding and contracts, to registering my business and taking over bookkeeping, they have been hugely helpful in both providing advice, as well enacting processes to free myself up to focus on operations and future services.
I am incredibly happy with the service I am being provided and would whole heartedly recommend them.“
Professionalisation helped Gina “so much in getting clarity on which direction to take in my business. I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious with regards to managing my finances, tax laws etc”. Professionalisation “really helped me to take control and move forward” “I cannot recommend this company enough. They seem to really care”. “Thank you! 🙏”
Preeti “needed some support with managing ideas and strategy” and says Professionalisation is “empathetic, listens, and provides helpful solutions based on what has been shared. I implemented an idea and within a week started to benefit monetarily”, “quickly making back my investment in this service with profit to spare!”
Gia says Professionalisation “truly understood me and my new business direction. We covered the equivalent of 30 days of self-directed work within a total of 2 hours together! Professionalisation has saved me so much time, and my sanity. I have finally found an efficient and reliable company to help me restructure my start-up business in a way which is sustainable in the long term future.”
How much time would you like?
A Time Pack can be used over several days, weeks, or months.
Professionalisation is the process an organisation goes through to develop into a professional, smooth running and stable business, where you are in control.
In short, yes and yes. Our staff are situated all over the UK and the only additional fees are to cover travel (and accommodation if necessary). Fees will be advised in advance and are calculated as the travel time at the hourly rate, plus any costs incurred.
Our phone lines operate 24/7 and our staff have the flexibility to work any hours they feel appropriate. Morning people can start at 7am and night owls can work into the evening. This gives our staff flexibility to work when they are most productive, reducing your costs and helping us manage a better work/life balance. It means we can adapt to your requirements if you need something urgently.
Different methods are suitable in different circumstances, so we have three methods for our staff to use:
As with any other professional service that works on a time basis, any time that involves working for or communicating with you, gets logged. We also deduct time if we incur costs on your behalf, like for example Companies House filing fees. Whatever the cost incurred, we deduct an equivalent amount of time from your account. If the cost incurred is £20 and your hourly rate is £20, then we simply deduct an hour from your account.
This is something we take very seriously. Our staff understand the importance of recording time as accurately as possible and they are provided the tools to do so.
Firstly, there is no reason or motivation for any of our staff to log extra time as their time records are only used for allocating to your account and bear no relevance to their pay or performance.
In addition, staff only log productive time, which means recording stops even if work pauses momentarily, like to answer a call or chat to a colleague.
Note that this does not apply for on-site visits, where we record the whole day.
You can contact whoever you need via our reception. This centralised system allows us to work flexibly, helps us keep our costs down and makes sure you always speak to a real person. It also means that when staff are working for you, distractions that can impact their flow or train-of-thought are reduced.
Virtual COO’s generally have more hands-on business experience than business consultants, yet our rates are considerably lower than the average consultant charge of £100-£150 an hour.
We are business operation experts, so as you would expect our internal operations are second to none! It is the combination of the services we offer, how we structure our operations internally, how we delegate and how we use AI (Artificial Intelligence) that allows us to maintain an unbeatable ‘one-of-a-kind’ service that is constantly evolving.
