CRM for Virtual Assistants
It’s far easier to get and retain new clients if you can offer them more than they expect – welcome to a special VA CRM just for you. As a Virtual Assistant we think you’ll find just what you need: a value-for-money CRM with all the relevant features presented in a simple way to help you run your growing business.
CRM stands for Customer Relationship Management, but VA CRM offers you much more than that. Our CRM handles most of your business needs. It helps you to be organised and efficient, automating tasks, reducing duplicates and the chance of errors, linking everything together in one place, managing all the things you’re doing for your own business and for your clients … and much more.
We don’t like to boast, but here are some of the comments so far…
- “It is really amazing!“
- “Could not do without this“
- “EVERYONE SHOULD BE USING THE CRM“
- “This is precisely what was needed – Zoho looked too clunky, AgileCRM was too simple, Infusionsoft would have been too expensive with their ‘personalisation’ service, Excel is not flexible enough and Trello and Asana seem designed with projects in mind“
- “Where was this when I started out!?!?“
- “Never thought I would be managing two Virtual Assistants myself – the CRM is exceptional.“
I’m interested. Tell me more…

- CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME EXAMPLES?
- Let’s just say you have three clients of your VA business: a heating engineer, an accountant and a plumber, each with their own own clients. Here’s how the VA CRM would make your life easier…
- The heating engineer wants you to take incoming calls and emails and manage his calendar, booking and rescheduling his appointments within agreed times. He wants to access his calendar on his mobile phone and laptop so he knows where he’s going each day. He also wants reminders for 11 months time when it’s a boiler service so you or he can contact them to remind them the next one is due.
- The accountant needs you to store his contracts, and organise the timings of VAT returns and payroll for his various clients.
- The plumber simply needs to you take his calls, manage his emails and book jobs for him – easy with the VA CRM.
- HOW WILL I ACCESS IT?
- You can access the VA CRM from any internet-connected device with a web browser, or from the free mobile app, simply browse to the dedicated web address for your VA CRM and login with your username and password. To make your job even easier and quicker, most browser software supports adding bookmarks/favourite web addresses and remembers your login details too.
- As a VA, you’ll have access to all the parts of the VA CRM you need. You’ll be able to manage all your clients’ needs from one place. You can even add other VAs to your CRM!
- HOW WILL MY CLIENTS ACCESS IT?
- Included in your package, are the setup of 3 of your clients in the VA CRM. They’ll be able to login as you do using their own usernames and passwords, and just access their own information. There’s no limit to how many clients you can manage with your VA CRM, so if you need more than 3 then we can set them up for you quickly for a very small one-off fee and very small monthly fees. You could even add a login for your VA CRM on your website.
- IS IT SECURE?
- For your and your clients’ reassurance, you can rely on secure web-hosting and secure access via an SSL certificate. This means you use https:// rather than http:// and the browser shows the padlock icon.
- ANYTHING ELSE?
- Super-fast access, excellent security, and guaranteed 99.9% uptime … actually, none of our CRMs have ever not been up! We host all CRMs at a datacentre in the UK, using our award-winning hosting partner.
- Benefit regularly from improved and new features – our system is built on an OpenSource system that’s being developed all the time.
Can I manage other VAs?
