TimeSvr - Part 3

Part 3 of the Virtual Assistant (VA) experience (click here for Part 1 and Part 2).

I decided to cancel my subscription to TimeSvr's beta inside the 3-day trial period. I had used an upcoming holiday to task them with finding me a hotel that suited my requirements (price, location, value for money, etc). Sadly, I spent more time setting up the task, error checking and reconfirming details than the output should have dictated. I ended up going with the hotel and rate I originally found myself online.

Perhaps my 'tasking' needs refinement to get the best out of this VA service - "it's not you, it's me". :-)

I think the issue is their business model is incompatible with my needs: they spend up to 30 minutes per day on your tasks, which I think drives a 'quick and nasty' approach to tasks rather than a quality/detailed approach.

I will be giving a similar task for our LA leg of the trip to Your Man In India which seem to have spun off their VA service as GetFriday.

Stay tuned.
