As demand for business transformation accelerates, and a shortage of consultants continues, your team doesn't have time to waste on busywork. Unleash billable capacity with virtual assistants for consultancies.
Management consultants spend 16 hours a week on administrative tasks. Meanwhile, two in three consulting firms say they’re short-staffed, and one in five are turning down work, Bloomberg reported. If you can’t find more consultants, you can give the ones you have more time for billable work by delegating administrative tasks to a cost-effective virtual assistant service.
Where do 16 hours per week go? Scheduling meetings, research, file management, email triage, travel and expense management, CRM data management, and more

Our promise is to add no management overhead to your team or ask anyone to change the way they work. We train assistants in your productivity technology including calendar and email management, CRM management, and document prep and file management. If we do not know something, we will learn it.
We have used our decades of collective business experience to develop a collection of best practices that drive all our interactions. Here are just a few of the ways we will ensure you get exceptional service.
Consultants have contacts stored in a variety of places, including inboxes, calendars, CRMs, spreadsheets, etc. This makes it difficult to accurately keep track of people, network, send emails, and engage in other outreach activities.
When you start working with Prialto, virtual assistants consolidate all contacts. After that, they will ensure all your contact management systems are consistent and up to date.
When consultants are networking, meeting clients, and carrying out other responsibilities, they just reach out to virtual assistants using the communication channels they prefer—email, text, telephone, or chat.
Our assistants will use your messaging tools and respond to all requests within the hour, so your consultants have easy access to support while they are on the go. Whenever they are not immediately available, your backup assistant will respond and ensure you get the support you need.
Whether prospecting for sales, preparing reports, or generating planning documents, our virtual assistants are experts at collecting research data based on your requirements and criteria. Your virtual assistant will carefully curate the information consultants need to stay well-informed and support business initiatives. Information we gather for our current clients includes:
