What our Clients say



“Irene’s Xero and GST training and assistance has been amazing. She made it so easy, with a relaxed, empowering teaching style. Thank you Irene, you certainly relieved my pain points!

I highly recommend Irene’s services, a great investment. “

Robin Wilson, Holistic Wellness
Napier, Hawkes Bay



“Irene and her team are just AMAZING. They have helped my business become automated and taken so much of the hard slog out of the admin side of my business I feel I really have the time again to work on my business and not in it so much. Irene has suggested areas for systems and areas of improvement that I did not know even existed. Highly professional and highly recommended. Thank you for your hard work! I just wish I had jumped into having a VA sooner.”

Carla Lowe, Paint Me Vintage
Tauranga, Bay of Plenty



“Irene from Admin Army is fantastic to work with. She is organised and responsive, working within the scope of the project provided and regularly checking-in with queries and progress updates.

A vital part of my business growth!”

Fiona Hall, Kiffin Limited
Titirangi, Auckland



“Having always been a paper and pen type of gal, I had several very full books of notes that needed some sort of coherent ordering. Having already worked alongside Irene, I knew her work ethic and integrity meant that my notes would be respected and well managed. In an extremely quick turn around (especially over the holidays) I got back all my notes beautifully typed up and easily ready for me to start the year organised.

I have no hesitation recommending Admin Army. The hours they have saved me more than covers the cost of the service.”

AJ Pipe, Accountability Coach



“So your sinking in that damn paperwork and can’t get the shit sorted while running your business and getting more stressed while not keeping up ? Doing lees because of the excess stress? who do you call ? ADMIN ARMY!

When it comes to Virtual Assistants, there are plenty out there, but Irene and the Admin Army team sit miles above the rest. Their quality is outstanding, and they really work alongside you to make things in your business happen – I don’t know how I managed without them! Knowing that they are taking care of certain tasks every month, means I don’t have to give those tasks another thought, giving me the freedom to focus on developing and selling my product range. If you’re considering hiring a VA for anything, I would highly recommend engaging with Admin Army first.

Irene saved the day, got us back on track, set up the backup and support I wanted to offer my clients while still focusing on what I do best developing and selling products to help your fur-babies. We had a chat made a plan and went for it and we thrilled with her constant support and efficiency!”

Fiona Robertson, Newflands



“We are a not for profit organisation and Irene kindly approached us and offered us her services. We are absolutely thrilled with her professional manner and extensive ability. She has been able to manage all of our requests competently and has taken initiative on many occasions to make our website more interactive. She comes up with ideas that are constantly evolving, We couldn’t recommend her more highly to anyone who is thinking of using her service. ”

Christina McBeth, Nourished for Nil



“Irene has taken a huge weight off my shoulders in managing our Facebook presence, and is doing a much better job at it than I ever was! She’s reliable, incredibly efficient and nothing is ever a problem. I’m always impressed with the time and effort that Irene puts in researching and coming up with new ideas and things to try out, and that has made a huge difference to our interactions with customers. There are so many options out there but I’m so pleased that I chose Irene and the Admin Army team – I highly recommend them to anyone!”

Haley Collier, Bubblebubs NZ



“Working with Admin Army was the first outsourcing that we had ever really attempted in the business, so it was a big step for us.

I knew we needed to start outsourcing but was a bit unsure of the process, I mean, where do you start?

What tasks would I be able to pass on, and was I giving up control of tasks that I should still be doing?

Irene, however, listened carefully when I explained about my business and the tasks I was doing and made some suggestions that she thought might work for me.

Once we got started she continued to check in with me to make sure I was happy with the work, and I was able to make small changes.

It didn’t take me long to see that Irene ran a very professional ship and that my business was in good hands.

Working with Admin Army has made a big difference to how my business is run as it has freed up time for me to focus on other aspects of the business, and it has been one of the best decision we made. Highly recommended.”

Susy Egneus, Bodyworkz
North Shore



“Irene and the Admin Army team are life-savers. As a consultant, you often need a second pair of eyes to dot the Is and cross the Ts and more often than not at short notice. Irene understands small businesses and works with me to achieve quality copy on deadline.”

Daniel O’Regan, Daniel O’Regan Strategic Communications Ltd.
Palmerston North



“Irene from Admin Army has been a huge help in the running of my catering business. She has taken over payroll and made it into such a simple process for me. Hours that were taken up with sorting out wages are now spent on other areas of what we do best – cater! Admin Army works around how we work, meaning that I didn’t have to change a thing. Irene is super-efficient, and has helped with lots of advice in other areas too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Admin Army, and let their expertise let you focus more on what you want to.”

Lisa Jackson, Boatshed Catering at The Chalet
Palmerston North



“I recently embarked on a new business venture purchasing a Jims Tree and Stump removal franchise with all the challenges of a start-up business. I tried to keep track of the record keeping myself but soon realised I couldn’t manage and grow a new business and also keep up with the demands of back office functions. I engaged the services of Admin Army and Irene sorted my backlog, took over compliance reporting and gave me back the time and the mind space to focus on learning a new industry and establishing a new business. Irene is competent hardworking and committed to my business success and is now an integral part of my business I couldn’t imagine working without her support.”

Ray Knight, Jim’s Tree and Stump Removal (Tree Knights Ltd)
