Strictly Savvy began in 2012 because we saw business owners struggling to get everything done. They were overwhelmed and not coping with the day-to-day running of their businesses. The dilemma was that they knew they needed help but didn't want the risk and hassle of employing someone.
Over the last six years we've established a team of high-calibre virtual assistants with a multitude of skills, talents and knowledge. We have also developed streamlined processes and systems all of which directly benefit our clients, set us apart from the average business and place us as the leading virtual assistant company in New Zealand.
By building a team with such an extensive array of skills, we are able to assist you with almost any task.
Virtual assistants are no longer a secret - the concept features in many productivity blogs and is called by some a secret productivity weapon.
Outsource your to-do list to our team of savvy virtual assistants - we are the game-changer you've been looking for! Get in touch...
Did you know we're an award winning team?
We're a powerhouse crew of smart, get-it-done, no drama kind of people. Many apply, but only the savviest make it through.
