Hire a Personal Assistant for Just 25 Cents an Hour and Supercharge Your Work Efficiency; Announcing the Launch of EVA - Electronic Virtual Assistant.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Virtual Management Inc., (, a provider of voice-based services, today announced the launch of their flagship product, the Electronic Virtual Assistant (EVA), targeted to busy people everywhere. A hybrid technology that blends the latest advances in digital recordkeeping with the unrivaled intuition and know-how of a live person, EVA aims to bring the power and efficiency of a personal assistant to people in all walks of life. No longer reserved for just senior management, now any employee or entrepreneur who is trying to multitask more out of their day can afford a little help. With a starting price of $69 per month, users can have a U.S.-based assistant available to them around the clock to help with personalized data storage and retrieval, sending e-mails on their behalf, scheduling meetings and reminders, filling out sales reports and keeping real-time "to-do lists" - all completed while away from an office or computer.

"Sales Force Automation software has traditionally been complex and difficult to use, so we designed our system for efficiency and ease of use," explained Eric Tippetts, EVP of worldwide sales at VMI. "Sales people and busy individuals from all walks of life are trying to squeeze ever-more productive time out of their day. Having the ability to 'get the ball rolling' with follow-up e-mail and action items, without even being at the office or in front of a computer, offers a tremendous competitive advantage - not to mention a huge time savings."

How It Works?

Designed to bring the highest level of efficiency to any job, EVA is a voice-based data entry system where users dictate important action items, calendared events or meeting summaries to a dedicated 800 number or onto a tiny handheld unit called "EVA's Ear." Being able to complete these tasks, on the go, in a matter of seconds, saves valuable time and allows workers to quickly refocus on the task at hand - revenue generation. The system can also be used to update business contact information or log expense-report and tax-related items so that nothing falls through the cracks. A typical five-minute call is equivalent to two hours of keyboarding and allows far greater detail and direction(1). Once dictation is complete, the data is processed and available typically within the hour. Users can log in from any Web browser and view their custom databases and activities or have this information sent to them electronically. This efficiency turns downtime into productive time since follow-up can be done on the drive or flight home, saving hours spent back at the office "finishing" the tasks of the day.

Data Security

All of the information that runs through the VMI network is housed in a state-of-the-art data center built with the latest safety and security innovations. Compliant with regulatory measures which require saving and archiving e-mails and corporate communications, EVA's data center is also disaster-tolerant and is built upon a unique base-isolation design which limits movement during an earthquake or other natural calamity. Each structure is also built with moisture-free protection systems, redundant communications connections, and UPS and back up generator power systems. In addition, VMI utilizes perimeter fencing, green field space, 24-hour guards, and continuous camera surveillance to ensure integrity at all times. Card key access, biometric entries, and mantraps are all utilized to ensure only authorized personnel gain access to the data center.
