Virtual Assistants are basically people who work through the power of the Internet. Traditionally, the only way to get connected with their client is to stay in front of their computer or lap top 24/7 just so they can keep up with time differences and be at their client’s back whenever they need them. Thankfully, Internet capable phones were invented along with different apps that can be incorporated to help Virtual Assistants do their job effectively and efficiently. Below are the best Android Apps for Virtual Assistant:
- beOrganized- If you are accustomed in using Google Calendar to record your personal activities and Microsoft Exchange when it comes to your work, then this is an app where you can combine both. With an eye friendly interface, meaning a well organized view from your screen and large fonts, adding tasks or event is easy with a simple touch or click. And since most Virtual Assistants are skilled when it comes to multi-tasking, its accurate voice recognition is highly appreciated. In addition to that, an icon can be placed on the very screen so when you execute a voice recognized command, like adding task, it can come in handy. Syncing will only take a matter of seconds then update is done—what a preposterous way of Google integration. As Virtual Assistants’ daily mantra—seeing in one glance what they have to accomplish in a day is their cue to start working.
With the use of beOrganized app, instead of stuffing all the info on one screen, you just need to simply scroll down to view the date you are looking for. No need to stress yourself especially when client is on the phone waiting for you. Highlights of beOrganized are the following:
- Speech Recognition for adding tasks or events
