Efficise is a virtual assistant and business outsourcing firm based in Karachi, Pakistan. The company launched in 2012, with the goal of helping people all over the world enhance their efficiency and productivity.
Since then, Efficise has grown into one of the most popular task-based services on this site.
Efficise virtual assistants are trained to handle a host of tasks that include standard admin stuff, web research, and other one-time virtual “gofer” jobs. Many clients turn to them for help with transcription, travel planning, social media management, data entry jobs, and more.
They allow flexibility to allow process-outsourcing and recurring tasks in ways some other virtual assistant companies can’t handle.
Plans and Pricing
Efficise offers both Individual and Business service packages.
Their Individual plan is available at 4 levels. A 15-task plan is $30 per month, a 30-task plan is just $45 a month, a 50-task plan is $65 a month, and a 100-task plan is only $100 a month.
These are tasks that can take up to 30 minutes to complete (other companies typically use a 15-minute guideline) and the team is available 24/7 to get them done for you.
At those price points, Efficise is definitely one of the best bang-for-your-buck services out there, and $1 per request is a pretty small price to pay to get 100 time-sucking tasks off your plate each month. Theoretically it could save you up to 50 hours a month, which is huge.
On a per-task basis, Efficise is more cost-effective than US-based rival Fancy Hands.
At the larger monthly plans, they even throw in some bonus hours for the occasional longer task that required more involvement or research.

*Excludes the 15-request plan.
If you need more than 100 virtual assistant requests in a month, or more in-depth or ongoing work, you might consider the Efficise Business plan.
Business rates start at $13 an hour, and go as low as $10/hr depending on how many hours you buy.
The nice thing is that for all but the lowest plan, the hours rollover to the next month. The hours do expire after a certain amount of time, but it’s good to know you’re not completely out the money if you don’t have a ton of outsourced work one month.
With a Business plan, you can outsource jobs like social media management, outbound calling, transcription, emails, data entry, and even customer service. If you prefer to work with a dedicated virtual employee on an ongoing basis, Efficise will provide a customized quote tailored to your needs.

Neither of these plans come with any start-up fees, contracts or long-term commitments. You can track progress on your tasks in real time, and cancel your Efficise service whenever you want.
Efficise has made some investments in their back-end dashboard that help provide a better customer experience. For example, you can prioritize two tasks a day, basically flagging them as important and jumping the rest of the queue.
In addition, users can maintain an account profile with your own instructions and preferences, so they don’t have to be explained anew each time.
