Defining Client’s Success with Core Principles
With over 8 years of being in existence as premier Virtual Assistants and Telemarketing service provider, the core mission of Task Papa is to help the business owners and decision-makers of startups and small businesses to free up their time from less important business chores and help them grow their businesses. With the company’s services being there for them 24/7, they can focus on more important business-related duties and also make out time for their family, friends, and passions. Task Papa has built its business of serving client’s needs on some core principles, and believes that serving for their success is the ultimate goal of the company.
Task Papa’s service is based on four fundamental principles: Quality of Service, Data Protection, Available 24*7 and Best Rates.
The company was started with the founder working from home, then moving on to working from a Co-working space and now operating from an independent office. The journey has been a topsy-turvy ride for Task Papa in a lot of ways but has also been a fulfilling one. The company is thankful to its clients and the team that make it to constantly ascend its growth graph.
Meet the Business Innovator
Devang Selani is the founder of Task Papa. He started working for a Telemarketing company, selling credit cards over the phone in 2004. Devang then moved up the corporate ladder and learned the core of the service business. He founded Task Papa in 2013 and has since then created a one-stop-shop for all outsourcing needs. Devang has been able to build a passionate, knowledgeable, and experienced team under all domains who are ready to help the clients with almost any kind of task under any given circumstances. He envisions to create a higher level of high-quality supply of outsourcing needs, and help businesses cut one time and recurring costs, by taking advantage of the economic differences between the Western countries and India.
Serving Clients with Dynamic Services and Talent
Task Papa is successfully hiring the right talent, upskilling them and keeping them engaged to provide world-class service to its clients. This, in turn, is helping other companies to maintain the level of service and the pricing structure and help the industry not only attract new clients but also keep existing ones interested.
The company is benefiting its clients by helping them reduce capital and recurring expenses, save their time, provide reliable, innovative and knowledgeable teams which are also helping them grow their business.
Innovating Through Expanding Business Reach
Task Papa applies innovation to almost all areas of the business and leverages the freedom and opportunities to all of its employees to encourage innovative thinking and implementation. This includes the process with which the company hires, trains and onboards the employees. The innovation is perpetually encouraged to help its clients save more time, money and energy.
Task Papa has partnered with a few co-working spaces in the USA to offer its service to their clients/community members at a discounted rate. This helps the coworking space attract new clients and assists their clients to leverage Task Papa’s services. This helps Task Papa to expand its client base.
Challenges of Delivering Services
One of the major challenges Task Papa faced was in 2018, when there was a surge in the number of signups, and the company was finding it difficult to hire the required candidates in a short span of time. The company had to ask its prospective clients for an additional time frame to get their respective VAs on board and at the same time, look for other options to fill in the positions. Looking at the gap in this domain, Devang started a sister company which now looks after the recruitment not only Task Papa but also for the companies under different domains.
