Haley had been on the lookout for a virtual assistant to help her maintain Bubblebubs Facebook presence when she heard about Admin Army through Network NZ, an online networking group for small New Zealand businesses.
Paint Me Vintage
As Carla's business and sales started to grow, she found she was in a position that many small business owners find themselves in - feeling overwhelmed and overloaded by the administrative tasks that were taking up so much of her time.
Your Kitchen Ltd
Your Kitchen’s previous accounting service was slow and troublesome, with bad online service. Sue knew they needed to switch to a more suitable option but understood how time-consuming and complicated the conversion process could be.
The Ship Shape Shoppe
While Rebekah Holmes shines at helping people feel less stressed by organising their homes and belongings, some of her own business tasks were getting swept under the carpet – so to speak. She quickly realised that it was unproductive and uneconomical to spend her time doing the tasks she didn’t enjoy that didn’t directly grow her business.
As a sole trader, Natasha found it challenging to keep on top of the bookkeeping. Cashflow was inconsistent, and there just wasn’t enough time to regularly manage the finances. This led to delays in sending out client invoices, along with other issues which can snowball if left unattended too long.
Since the launch of the business, the chore of payroll was a never-ending thorn in Lisa’s side. Using a manual process – without any payroll software – all calculations were painstakingly done by hand using the IRD PAYE calculator. It was a time-consuming task requiring intense concentration and accuracy. This took at least two hours of uninterrupted time every week.
As a relatively new business, Mata Digital had no systems or processes around bookkeeping or payroll. Internally, they didn’t have the time or resources to do a good job of setting up this critical part of running their business. As every new business owner does, Tim initially took on the task. But, he soon realised that it was eating up too much of his precious time.
Kate The Gardener
As Kate's business grew, and she began taking on more clients, she began struggling to keep on top of key tasks – bookkeeping being one of them. Kate soon admitted that bookkeeping was not her strength (or her passion) and knew, as it was fundamental to the success of her business, she was going to need help.
Hawke's Bay Hockey
With only two full-time employees, time is precious. The team at Hawkes Bay Hockey understood that outsourcing specific tasks to a highly experienced specialist is an essential time saver. It allowed them the freedom to put those limited in-house resources to be put to good use elsewhere.
When Mandy and Candice stepped into the leadership roles at Network NZ, they wanted to make sure everything was done correctly from the start. Acknowledging that time is the most precious resource for any business, they decided to outsource some key components of NNZ.
Hawkes Bay Concrete
John and Amber Teddy from Hawkes Bay Concrete Services were so busy that they felt out of their depth. Sick of dealing with errors from their previous bookkeeper, they were dreading the thought of having to bring their time consuming financial tasks back in-house. But they didn’t really see any other option.
