Online business and service automation solution offers increased revenue opportunities and enhanced customer service for OBC operators

TORONTO, ON – September 20, 2010 – Your Virtual Butler® (YVB), a developer of software solutions for the serviced office industry, today announced the launch of the newest version of its flagship Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution.

YVB is a web-based software solution that enables Office Business Centers (OBCs) to automate all facets of their business operations. “Organizations of all sizes are becoming increasingly reliant on Office Business Centers for the business services they need to compete both in their local and global markets,” said Frank D. Cottle, Chairman, Alliance Business Centers Network (ABCN). “OBCs that can provide their tenants and other clients with immediate access to these services will better position themselves for growth and become forerunners in the expanding OBC industry.”

Among the OBCs that have implemented YVB to manage its sales activities, customer information, meeting facilities and virtual offices is Ballantyne Business Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“YVB is the one essential tool which allows us to manage all of our internal processes. Our customers can access information on the availability of facilities and complete their reservations and orders in real time without intervention by OBC staff. By enabling our customers to instantly book services online, we increase revenues while enhancing customer service and have a better view into our entire center operations,” said Amanda Schüss, General Manager, Ballantyne Business Center.

Your Virtual Butler® – How it Works

YVB allows OBC clients to select and purchase services such as meeting room bookings, catering and virtual offices, and to manage their accounts via an easy-to-use web interface. The solution provides OBC operators with 360° account views, billing summaries and invoices based upon the client’s online bookings. It also offers automated lead capture, quote preparation, lease management, order processing, and much more, while providing a single point of knowledge for all OBC business processes. YVB works seamlessly in multiple languages, currencies and time zones, whether you are a single location or operate centers around the globe.

By managing internal and customer-facing operations online with YVB, OBCs can;

• book more meeting rooms - inventory can be easily viewed and booked online
• sell more virtual offices - customers can set up their own presence
• generate more concierge service orders – offer tenants the benefits of 24/7 online ordering
• accelerate lead conversions – help managers stay on top of each phase of the sales cycle
• obtain valuable business insights through robust reporting features

“The development of YVB was guided by Office Business Center owners who needed a single integrated solution to automate both front-office and back office operations, including prospecting, sales activities, billing and account management processes,” said Mark Verdun, President, Your Virtual Butler.

YVB is based on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform providing user-familiarity and out-of-the-box installation, and is easily integrated with existing desktop and backend systems. “We have delivered a solution that is easy to incorporate with OBC’s existing systems. Once installed, the solution can be accessed and utilized through Microsoft Outlook, making it very simple for OBC staff to use,” added Verdun.
