About Byron

byron review

The company was started by Michael Benson in 2016 due to seeing a lack of accountability and low quality of work across the freelance marketplace. Byron’s current owner and CEO, Ujwal Velagapudi, continued Michael’s work by elevating Byron’s quality standards to be a strong contender in the VA services space.

Byron only hires US-based assistants and puts them through a rigorous vetting and testing process evaluating them across more than 100 skills. All Byron Assistants are college educated and have 5 or more years of experience as a Virtual Assistant (any kind), C Suite Executive Assistant, Remote Accountant/Bookkeeper, or Virtual Administrative Officer.

When you sign up for one of their plans you have the option to submit short or long-term tasks.

Short-term tasks are generally tasks that can be completed within 24 hours. Long-term tasks give you the opportunity to work with a dedicated assistant on an ongoing basis.

Byron’s target customers are startups, small businesses, and individuals looking to outsource some of their workload. Enterprise-level support is also available on a custom-plan basis.

They have a  user-friendly platform, and it’s easy to add multiple users so all of your team can have access to your VA and send tasks to be completed.

Byron Alternatives

Byron is a relative newcomer into the growing US-based VA space, and is more affordably priced than companies like BELAY and Worldwide 101

Time ETC and Zirtual seem to be a closer match, with a similar tech-focus but still slightly higher rates.

    My dedicated assistant, Michelle is a dream come true. She has the bull by the horns, so my stress levels have gone way down. My whole Byron experience has been great. I appreciate having them as part of my team.

  1. We used to work with Fancy Hands, and Byron is worlds ahead of them. Answers are ALWAYS prompt and I receive proactive updates if it’s a task that requires more time. Communications is always clear. We are so grateful to have Byron supporting our work.

    Byron is Great! I have worked with Byron for over 1 year and they have been a huge lever to my personal life and business. I have been able to offload a ton of tasks that allow me to handle things that I want to handle. They are professional and easy to work with and their platform is fairly easy to use. They also get things done much quicker than I could imagine. Shout out to my dedicated assistant Sarah who has been a lifesaver!
