Task Virtual is an India-based virtual assistant company. The company is relatively new to the virtual assistant space, although the company is headed up by two partners with a considerable amount of experience in the industry.
The company offers a wide range of services, carried out by fully-vetted, skilled assistants, and being based in India they are able to offer competitive rates.
When I asked Task Virtual about their company directive they said, “we are committed, on time, dedicated, and shoulder all the responsibilities of our clients.” With speed and accuracy being two of the more important reasons to start outsourcing, it’s reassuring to hear this directly from a company.
Their target customers are business owners and entrepreneurs in need of additional support without employing their own staff. TaskVirtual’s staff are available to start work at short notice without any long-term contracts.
When you sign up with TaskVirtual.com you purchase a number of tasks or an amount of hours. When you send over details of the tasks you want completed they find an assistant with the best-matched skillset to carry out the work. This means you have access to a large pool of assistants to take advantage of different skills, as opposed to being tied to the same assistant as offered by some companies. You do however have the option of a dedicated assistant should you prefer to work with the same person.
All their virtual assistants are managed in-house by line-managers and they will also accommodate your working hours and timezone. On paper, Task Virtual tick all the right boxes and they appear to have plenty of flexibility. To find out exactly how they match up with your own requirements you will need to contact them with as much information as you can provide to gauge their response.
Task Virtual’s virtual assistants provide support for a wide range of tasks, including:
- Admin support
- Social media management
- Content writing
- Data entry
- Email and calendar management
- IT support
- And more
The company list their own areas of specialization as real estate management, eCommerce management, and social media management.
They offer custom quotes for large jobs if you have an ongoing project you want help with. As always, when communicating with virtual assistant companies you are going to have a better relationship the more detail you can provide. Be as detailed as possible and give plenty of feedback to your assistant.

On the personal / task-based side of things, your primary competitors are OkayRelax, which has plans ranging from $2.50 to $4 per task, but allows tasks up to 30 minutes (vs. 15 at TaskVirtual). OkayRelax also provides a dedicated assistant on their higher tier plans, which may or may not be appealing to you.
The other company I did a trial with a few years ago that might be worth checking out is Efficise, which runs a similar task-based model out of Pakistan.
