The 7 Best Reasons Why Virtual Assistants Should Be In Your Home

by KP Evolutions on August 9, 2018

We all know that life in this age has so many moving parts, and it is hard always trying to control them.

Work, family, finances, scheduling, exercising, and so many more are the aspects of life that we must maintain in order to enjoy it.

If we wake up every day having to reinvent the wheel because we don't have control, then are we ever going to have the chance to really enjoy life?

This is where virtual assistants come in.

Virtual assistants are smart devices or smart speakers that have a built-in intelligent personal assistant that responds to voice interaction.

Take for example the Amazon Echo.

The Amazon Echo is a smart speaker built with Alexa, which is the intelligent or virtual assistant.

All you have to do is say "her" name and the system begins listening to what you say.

Simple as that, but how will it really assist you? What are the applications?

In this article, we will discuss the 7 best features of virtual assistants that will help you get back in control of your life.

1. Setting Appointments

7 best reasons why virtual assistants should be in your home

Getting appointments set can be a frustrating task.

You've got to make phone calls, send multiple invite emails and texts, and send out reminders in the mail.

Not to mention if the appointment is a meeting, you have to coordinate a mutually beneficial meeting time for each person involved.

With a virtual assistant, you can set appointments, send out invitations, and get reminders all by simply asking.

This is all done with the power of your voice and the proper statements and questions to the assistant.

You don't have to break the stride in your day to sit down at your computer to complete the same task.

Also, never fear of forgetting and missing an appointment all thanks to your assistant's daily reminders.

2. Financial Guidance

To really stay on top of your finances, you must be constantly aware of how your numbers are changing on a monthly, if not weekly, basis.

The reality is that finding the time to keep up is not that as easy as it sounds.

A virtual assistant can help you maintain control by logging monthly, weekly, or daily reports depending on your needs.

All you need to do is take a photo of your receipts or monthly reports and the virtual assistant will keep your data stored in the cloud.

Just say a few words and your assistant will refer to your data and give you the results you want when you want it.

This accessibility will not only help you get on top of your money but give the financial peace you desire.

3. Fitness Tracking

Deciding to get on an exercise plan is always overwhelming. 

What kind of plan do I get on? How much cardio should I do? What gym is the best? How do I track my calories? 

Most people who have these questions, if they can afford it, choose to get a personal trainer that will train them and track their fitness.

If you can't afford a personal trainer and would rather work out at home, a virtual assistant can step in and be your own personal fitness trainer and tracker.

For example, if you have a device with Amazon's Alexa, all you have to do is instruct Alexa and she will walk you through a 7-minute workout.

So no more excuses for missing a workout!

Also, if you have a Fitbit or similar fitness tracker, you can connect it to your assistant and they can keep up with your data such as calories and steps taken.

4. Home Security

Protecting your home, family, and belongings is so important.

In today's crazy world there come times when you are leaving the house and really don't have time to set the alarm and lock all the doors.

This could also apply when it is time for bed when you are too tired to close down the house.

With a virtual assistant, you can instruct it to make sure the alarm system is set while not wasting any time or energy.

If you want to take it a step further, you can link your houses smart locks to the assistant so you won't have to worry about checking the doors before you leave.

Just a few words to instruct and you and your belongings are safe and sound and give you peace of mind while you are sleeping or gone.

5. Check Traffic & Weather

When you have work or appointments to go to, it is adamant to know how busy the roads are and the conditions of the weather.

Sure you can pull up this data on your phone, but with a virtual assistant, you can continue getting ready or planning while getting a breakdown of how traffic and weather are currently.

Taking it one step further, you can even tell the assistant the place or address you are headed to and it will give you an estimated drive, walk, and bike time.

This can be so beneficial in making sure you make it to your important engagements on time.

6. Fast Math

Some situations arise when you need to crack some numbers but don't have the ability or time to write it out or type it in a calculator.

You just need some fast math.

Maybe this is when you are working on your finances or maybe working on a building project, your virtual assistant is your go-to resource for fast math.

No matter the job, having a resource that can tell you the exact numbers almost instantly would be helpful for anyone.

7. Order Food (the most important)

If you have a family or run a business, there will always be situations in which you will need to order food.

Ordering food online or over the phone can sometimes be a real pain and not always correct.

Being able to order from your favorite places in an almost instant will not only save you time but headaches as well.

Another feature is that your assistant can even order groceries, from your favorite stores that offer online ordering, when your fridge is looking a little empty.

Just swing by your store and your groceries are ready to be picked up or have it delivered to your door.

In Conclusion

Life can get crazy if you aren't in control of the many aspects of it.

A virtual assistant can help you manage these things we discussed in this article by taking the responsibility off your shoulders of keeping up with it all.

These amazing devices can help you focus on the things that are most important in your life.

The features mentioned are just a few of the thousands of features these devices have.

With tech evolving like it is, new features come out every day.
