Atticus is a virtual assistant company based in the Philippines. They specialize in recruiting and supplying virtual assistants to entrepreneurs and small to medium-sized businesses all over the world.
The company started operations in early 2016. All of their VAs work out of their offices in Manila and are managed in-house.
About Atticus Solutions
The company is headed up by Managing Director Lester Tay, and Miguel Dy Buncio who is their Business Development Director.
Their business model is recruiting and managing virtual assistants in-house to meet the needs of their clients.
How it Works
When you sign up with Atticus.ph, a member of their team will arrange a call to discuss your VA needs and get a better understanding of your business.
They will then start recruiting VAs best suited to work with you and your business while keeping you involved in the recruiting process.
Once they find the workers you are happy with, they take care of human resources, administration, payroll, etc. All you need to do is communicate with the VA directly regarding your workflow.
Atticus says they carry out continual development and training with their assistants to improve the communication and working relationships with their clients.
Atticus offers a wide range of professional business services you would expect from a virtual assistant provider. By this, I mean they can provide support for any business tasks that can be completed remotely.
In theory, recruiting staff to meet the requirements of each client should give them an advantage over other virtual assistant companies that use the same pool of staff, since they can hand pick the right workers with the right skills.
Although, it may also cause a delay while they are finding the right person. As they also manage staff in-house this limits the geographic area they can cover.
To give you an idea of some of the services they currently supply, Atticus has:
- Back office support
- Social media marketing
- Customer service
- General virtual assistance
Plans and Pricing
Atticus do not have any set pricing plans or hourly rates. You need to arrange a time to speak with a member of their team and they will build a custom plan tailored to your specific needs.
When I pressed for a ballpark estimate though, my contact indicated prices start at $1,400 per month and up for a full-time assistant.
