Frequently Asked Questions

HOW COULD A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT, ASSIST MY BUSINESS?

It's simple - work SMARTER, not Harder.  Most small busiensses in New Zealand (and I suspect most other countries too), are run by a single person (or small team), who dispite what they may think, do not have unlimited skills, time and money to carry out every aspect of running a business.  OfficeHQ (your Virtual Assistant) can work remotely from your office/base to carry out your administrative tasks that prevent you from spending time on those income, business expansion tasks that are really what they are good at and quite often why they wnet into business.

OfficeHQ can provide as much or as little assistance as you require and our services are only limited by ones imagination.

 

TRANSCRIPTION RECORDING FORMATS

We accept most forms of digital recordings from modern dictaphones and software.  We also transcribe hard copy documents, however the speed will be affected by legibility of handwriting.

 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO TRANSCRIBE MY FILE

When dictating, people speak about 4-5 times faster than an experienced typist can type when the audio is clean and audible.  Other factors affecting speed include: the number of people talking; accents and overlapping speakers.

You can budget on a 1:4 ratio, that is one minute of clean audio will take approximately four minutes to transcribe.  We also transcribe hard copy documents, however the speed will be affected by legibility of handwriting.  Then allow time for proof reading and formatting.

 

SENDING FILES TO OFFICEHQ

For small electronic files, email to TheOffice@OHQ.co.nz.  For larger files and for medium to high use clients we recommend you consider DropBox.

 

LOCATION

Location simply is not an issue anymore.  We service clients throughout Taranaki, the King Country, Auckland, the UK and even Kuala Lumpur.

If you are not based in New Zealand, the difference in time zones could mean that we can complete your work while you are sleeping, ready for the start of your next day.

We recomend DropBox for our international clients.
