Remplo enables small business owners and entrepreneurs to outsource tasks to their team of virtual assistants. The company has a large team of hand-picked virtual assistants (primarily based in Sri Lanka) with a range of skills to meet their clients’ needs.
Remplo has been providing virtual assistant services since 2006, though briefly went through a weird period of name changes. (For a time during 2017-2018, the company was known as TaskEngage or Outvas.)
Being in the virtual assistant space for that long and still going strong is testament to a good reputation and a lot of satisfied clients. The company is headed up by Roshana Mallawaarachchi, and their target customers are small businesses and entrepreneurs.
They claim to have worked with over 1,000 clients, and saved them time by having their skilled virtual assistants handle their tasks at a cost effective and competitive rate.
Roshana pointed out that they have, “minimized issues associated in working with staff in autonomous and distant locations by keeping the contractors accountable and productive no matter where they are working from in the world.” That’s a mouthful, right?
He added that their hiring process utilizes a 10-step process designed by Richard Branson’s former executive assistant.
Remplo assistants are located in Sri Lanka, with sales offices in Australia and the UK.
The company provides clients with VAs ready to tackle any day-to-day tasks a business owner would look to outsource. They do however group their virtual assistants’ skill sets into six categories as follows:
- Admin and Organizing
- Marketing and Social Media
- Medical Transcription
If your needs fall under any of the categories above, or you just have routine tasks you want to outsource, provide Remplo with as much detail as possible. The more detail you provide upfront, the better the communication and understanding is going forward.
Remplo assistants work from their home offices instead of from a dedicated call center-type cubicle farm, which results in lower overhead and additional cost savings.
Plans and Pricing
Remplo is among the most affordable VA companies I’ve seen, with rates set at $5 an hour across their menu of plans:
That means you can start out with a dedicated Remplo assistant for just $50 a month for 10 hours of work.
If you have a little more work, you can buy a 40-hour per month plan for just $200.
The popular “Gold” level plan offers a dedicated VA for around 20 hours a week for $400, and a full-time assistant will run you $800 a month.
Remplo has been in business for a long time and they do have a lot of experience in the virtual assistant space which goes a long way. I always recommend doing some due diligence and making contact with companies to see how they fit with your needs.
