how can we help?
maximize your earning potential and gain financial flexibility
If your own hourly rate is higher than ours, it’s not difficult to see you could be earning a good deal more by delegating some of your tasks and spending more of your own time on billable activities and following your vision. But what if our rates are fairly similar to your own? We can still help to maximize your earnings. Chances are we’ll be a lot quicker at performing admin, marketing, accounting, design and social media tasks. Even if you’re proficient in the systems and are prepared to put in all the hours, are you sure there aren’t other jobs you should be doing instead? Jobs that simply can’t be delegated to anyone else, that only you can do. That’s where your true value lies.
In addition, financial burdens come in many forms for businesses. Payroll, rent, furniture, utilities, IT equipment, communications infrastructure, stationery & consumables, the list goes on. T8 is a hub business and we already have the infrastructure to control your start-up costs.
improve your cash flow
As soon as you hire staff in Hong Kong your business has numerous obligations, including visas, employee compensation insurance and the Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF). These come on top of the real work you have to do. The human factor can seriously affect cash flow when there isn’t as much work coming in. Outsourcing to T8 allows you to control these costs and removes the obligations to individuals. With a small retainer it can be like having a Pay As You Go business admin and support department. You only pay for the time in which we’re carrying out productive tasks reducing the stress of finding cash flow when things are quieter.
respond faster to change
In uncertain times, outsourcing allows for staffing levels and capacity to fluctuate as necessary, without the associated HR issues or equipment overheads. Either upsize, with the ability to start working productively immediately, benefitting from a ready-made, fully functioning, enthusiastic team of administrators with a wide range of skills and experience. Or downsize, simply by delegating less work. When the time comes for you to have your own in-house department we’ll even help you select and train your staff to make the transition smooth and efficient.
elevate your profile
Profile is all about presenting the professional image desired by your customers. We can help you present the image that your customers expect. If you’re an overseas business, we can give you a Hong Kong and Asian presence with a registered commercial address either in Discovery Bay or through a partner in Central; if you’re a one-person operation we can provide full admin back up; if you’re selling a new product we can offer you a whole customer service department overnight.
achieve peace of mind
Allowing unanswered calls to go to voicemail means callers are less likely to leave a message. Not ‘being there’ for your existing customers may leave them feeling neglected. Prospective customers may just move on and you may never know what you missed. We give you the choice of either diverting your calls to us or setting up a dedicated phone number. Either way you have peace of mind that during working hours every call will be handled by a knowledgeable ambassador for your company. We’ll be there when you can’t be.
find space to think and work
Managing a small business or expanding into Asia can be stressful, not to mention expensive with the cost of office rents ever increasing. T8 provides a cost-effective hot desk option for its clients, which can be either retained or booked on an ad hoc basis. We provide a great working environment with administrators on hand to help.
