What is Flexi-Time®?
Flexi-Time® is an affordable and easy way to get us working for you. It let’s you access our knowledge, experience and expertise, and use us in a way that suits you.
We offer lots of fixed services, but it is impossible to create a service for everything. Often all you actually need is someone capable, who can do all those things, for you that you can’t or don’t want to do do yourself.
Flexi-Time® allows you to pay us in once, to do lots of different things for you. It gives you a multi-tasking, smart working, English and Spanish speaking Personal Assistant, to do whatever you need done in the quickest and easiest way possible.
How Does Flexi-Time® Work?
It’s quite simple. You buy our time then tell us what you want us to do with it.
Flexi-Time® is effectively ‘currency’ for everything we do. Each activity and service we provide, is quantified in Flexi-Time®. For our fixed services, we categorise the type of work being done, either general or specialist, which sets an appropriate base rate, and then multiply that by the how much time the work takes to complete.
When you use Flexi-Time® we just do things in reverse. You buy a Flexi-Time® pack, we track the type of work we are doing for you and how long it takes. We then deduct from your balance accordingly. When you’ve used up all your Flexi-Time®, you simply top up, much the same as a Pay As You Go phone.
We’ll always tell you up front of how much time we’ll think you’ll need. You can always check our table of services and Flexi-Time® examples, to get an idea of what you might need for various things that you may need our help with.
What Does Flexi-Time® Give Me?
So we can fully understand exactly what it is you’re trying to do, – clarify, answer questions and offer guidance to get you set off and heading in the right direction from the start.
We do things you can’t or don’t want to, and do it correctly. If we think that you’re not going about things the right way, or there’s an easier or better way, we’ll tell you and explain why.
Making things easy means a lot more than just translating and interpreting. Within reason we can do anything for you, and work flexibly and efficiently, so you always get the best use of our time.
What can I use Flexi-Time® for?
We can be your eyes, ears and mouth, communicating in Spanish on your behalf however and with whoever you need us to. Be that making phone calls, email, messages (SMS, WhatsApp, Skype), reading or writing letters and emails or old fashioned face to face translating or interpreting in meetings and appointments.
Spain’s mindless bureaucracy is notorious. Fortunately we know it inside out, so you can trust use us to cut through Spanish red tape and get your dealings with government agencies completed with no hassle and minimum effort of your part.
Having someone translate and fill out forms for you is one thing, having someone experienced in negotiations representing you is quite another. Whether it be resolving problems with community organisations, neighbours, your bank; tying down a rental contract or car purchase, we take it in our stride.
When you’re seeking answers or advice regarding a specific situation, for example relating to tax or a financial matter, our specialists are qualified and experienced in handling formal affairs and also have access to professionals if these are required.
Of course, as all of our services are ‘denominated’ in Flexi-Time®, you can use it to ‘pay’ for or towards any of our fixed services.
