The Dart Exec team were needing a solution to free up their time from the admin heavy side of their roles, so that they could focus on the client relationships and research process.
They were not looking to employ an additional full-time team member but needed additional support for the team at a cost-effective level and a quick starter / fast on-boarding process.
When searching for support on Google, SmartPA appeared in the top search results and reviews on TrustPilot were a good resource when doing due diligence on the credibility/viability of using SmartPA.
When weighing up their options, poor communication from other companies regarding data confidentiality was a key obstacle, whereas SmartPA was able to ensure the required compliance needs.
SmartPA offered access to an extensive talent pool of people with a range of expertise and skills that was required specifically for our needs, and managed to meet the requirements Dart Exec took into consideration when searching for an admin outsourcing solution: Cost savings, resources and technology, ability to meet deadlines, proactiveness, communication, and data confidentiality.
To support the DART team to success, SmartPA provided assistance in Document Production, Document Formatting, and Data Entry into DART Exec's CRM system.
This support has allowed the core team to free up their time to focus on client facing tasks, meetings and interviews, which in turn increases their efficiency and productivity. The team now have more “comfort time” in reaching deadlines and have a quicker turnover time on mandates.
