Meet Taylor, Your Virtual Employee

Posted by Red Butler Team on 03/ 03/ 16

 

Red_Butler_Introduces_Taylor 


 

You're too busy to even use a Virtual Assistant right? That's the challenge, it just needs to work. It needs to be seamless, fully integrated and something you can set and forget. That's why Red Butler is announcing Taylor, your real time virtual assistant. Create an email address like taylor@yourcompany.com, then email or cc Taylor and consider it done.

 


 

Several months ago, a writer from Inc Magazine reported that he needed a pro-active Virtual Assistant service that was effortless to use, easy to integrate with - and super reliable. Red Butler offers all of that, but we've gone a step further with the introduction of Taylor, your new "real time" virtual assistant.

In addition to submitting tasks to Red Butler, on our Red15 plan and higher, you'll get Taylor - real time inbox and calendar monitoring. With Taylor, it's business as usual. Just send an email to Taylor taylor@yourcompany.com to schedule a meeting, update your calendar or to make a call - it's like having a virtual employee.

Better yet, just cc Taylor to follow up with a client, find a time to meet, make a call or book a flight. Plus, Taylor is branded to your company name, has a 1 hour or less turn around time, provides coverage on weekdays from 6am to 6pm and is checking your inbox in real time for instantaneous coverage.

 

What is Taylor? 

 

1. Inbox: Create an email address for Taylor to log into, e.g. taylor@yourcompany.com. Whenever you need something, just email Taylor. Plus, since Taylor has a company email address, it's like having a virtual employee that you can rely on and interact with in real time.

 

2. Calendar: Share your calendar with Taylor. Anytime you need something added, removed or re-scheduled, just let Taylor know. You can copy Taylor on any client emails too. Taylor will contact your client, find a new time, send a calendar invitation and confirm.

 

3. Real Time: With Taylor, you'll have someone proactively monitoring a company email address and inbox in real time. That means, 1 hour or less responses and instantaneous support. Taylor is available weekdays from 6am to 6pm PST - that's 12 hours of daily coverage.

 

4. Seamless: Email Taylor for anything that you need. If its a research, travel or other task, Taylor will seamlessly have one of Red Butler's Admin's working on it. This way you're getting real time support with a traditional task based virtual assistant.

 

5. Scaling: You can share Taylor with other people in your company, law firm, startup or office. Add users to be able to interact with Taylor - deducting from your hours, or add an additional account holder for Taylor to manage their account and time separately.

 


 

We know that there are a lot of options out there and Red Butler greatly appreciates that you're taking the time to make an informed decision. Red Butler has been established since 2005, we understand the challenges you face. Request a personal consultation to see if Red Butler is a good fit for you, or get started today.

Meet Red Butler's Communications Team

Posted by Red Butler Team on 10/ 22/ 15

 Red_Butler_Travel_Specialist

 


  

Red Butler handles all the day to day details of your schedule so you can stay focused on your business. Rely on Red Butler to schedule meetings, respond to emails, monitor feedback, and more. Our comms team specialists are specialized in handling incoming and outgoing communications, and monitoring news which is relevant to your business.

 


 

Here are a few ways our comms team can handle details for you that help boost your whole team's productivity:

1. Manage calendaring and email. Red Butler can manage your personal email box to make sure it flows correctly or you can assign us a personal assistant email address for your company so we can respond directly with your branding. Have us handle your email avalanche. Read more about that here

2. Accept calendar invites as well as make appointments for clients. Tired of waiting on hold? We will do that for you. Here are more ways we can handle your calls for you and your team.
 
3. Monitor internet news and forward anything relevant to your company.  We can check specific sources for you, or do general internet research to find the information you need.
 
4. Monitor your feedback box and forward anything pertinent to you as well as pull reports once a month or as needed.  It is important to respond to feedback quickly, and we are here to help you do just that, bridging the link between you, your website, and your potential clients. 
 

Our comms team specialists are specialized in handling these details and more. You can think of them as a bridge which links you and builds connections to your website, email, and your potential clients. To utilize our comms team, simply sign up for a Red Butler 15, 25 or 50 plan. Here is a little more about our comms team backgrounds:

Melissa

Melissa was born and raised in the beautiful Catskill Mountains in Upstate NY where she continues to reside amidst the beautiful views, wonderful hiking areas and small town charm.  For fun she started a Women's Softball League which allows both "me time" as well as physical activity.  She enjoys reading & spending time with family.  She has both a background in Office administration as well as emergency medicine.  Being on the Communications team allows her to help others and to lesson their load so they can enjoy life just a little more.

Rebecca

Rebecca grew up in Las Vegas. Like many residents of the Las Vegas Valley she only sees The Strip or the inside of a casino when out-of-town guests come to visit. She has lived in Missouri, Iowa, Colorado & Oregon, but Vegas will always be home. She is an avid reader, crafter and volunteer. Rebecca has a background in banking, office administration and customer support. In addition to leading the Communications Team she also serves as a mentor to new RBAs, a role she enjoys almost as much as her work on the Communications Team. She loves helping others, be it through mentoring or helping her clients manage their schedules and emails. Rebecca feels that through the Communications Team she directly impacts the lives of her clients, allowing them to spend their valuable time working on other important tasks and spending time with their family outside of work. All the roles at Red Butler take a bit of the burden off our clients and  help them work towards building their companies while still achieving a work/life balance. 

 


  

Since 2005, our high-performance executive clients have helped Red Butler continuously improve our service model. Today our clients enjoy the service quality of an experienced in-house executive support team for less than the cost of one additional hire.
