We help bring the life balance you need and take the pressure of bookkeeping and admin off your business
What our clients say
“It is an absolute pleasure to be working with Admin Army. Irene and her team are always on hand to help, they are easy to deal with, and nothing is too much trouble. I have been working with Admin Army since Dec 2017, when I wanted to revamp my monthly newsletter. The team developed a new template and now take care of the formatting of content and distribution on a monthly basis. This means I can focus my time on where my business needs it most, confident in the knowledge that the newsletter is being taking care of in a timely and professional way. Now this is under control, we are working on improving my email automations and sequencing. As a sole trader, it makes such a difference having someone knowledgeable and practical on my side like Irene, with whom I can discuss ideas and collaborate to make sure my business systems are on track.”
Sian Stimson, Arbonne Independent Consultant
“I’ve absolutely loved having Admin Army look after the social media for my baby product business. Engagement, followers and even sales have gone up as a result of their work! Thanks so much!”
Jackie Procter, Doidy Cup
“As a new business owner you are constantly juggling ten different balls in the air and when it came to my bookkeeping it was one more ball that I simply did not have the time, patience nor expertise to handle. And what I have learnt as a business owner is you have to trust people who know better than you. Irene and the team at Admin Army have my complete trust. I trust that my Xero account will be kept up to date, transactions will be reconciled regularly, my tax returns will be filed and that Irene will always provide me the best advice for my business and my goals. I couldn’t recommend her enough.”
Roxanne Jans, The Brand Guardian
“Finding Irene from Admin Army has been an absolute game changer for me.
I had spent way too much time struggling to get my head around my business accounting and in no time at all Irene has it sorted and is helping me to understand the mysteries of accounting. She is phenomenal with her communication, understanding, efficiency and ability to explain things to me in a way I understand.
I am a changed woman and am so enjoying being on this journey now that I have Irene in my life – I am now able to focus on that parts of the business that I’m best suited for!”
Kate, Kate the Gardener
“I recently embarked on a new business venture purchasing a Jims Tree and Stump removal franchise with all the challenges of a start-up business. I tried to keep track of the record keeping myself but soon realised I couldn’t manage and grow a new business and also keep up with the demands of back office functions. I engaged the services of Admin Army and Irene sorted my backlog, took over compliance reporting and gave me back the time and the mind space to focus on learning a new industry and establishing a new business. Irene is competent hardworking and committed to my business success and is now an integral part of my business I couldn’t imagine working without her support.”
Ray Knight, Jim’s Tree and Stump Removal (Tree Knights Ltd)
“Irene from Admin Army has been a huge help in the running of my catering business. She has taken over payroll and made it into such a simple process for me. Hours that were taken up with sorting out wages are now spent on other areas of what we do best – cater! Admin Army works around how we work, meaning that I didn’t have to change a thing. Irene is super-efficient, and has helped with lots of advice in other areas too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Admin Army, and let their expertise let you focus more on what you want to.”
Lisa Jackson, Boatshed Catering at The Chalet
“Irene and the Admin Army team are life-savers. As a consultant, you often need a second pair of eyes to dot the Is and cross the Ts and more often than not at short notice. Irene understands small businesses and works with me to achieve quality copy on deadline.”
Daniel O’Regan, Daniel O’Regan Strategic Communications Ltd.
“Working with Admin Army was the first outsourcing that we had ever really attempted in the business, so it was a big step for us.
I knew we needed to start outsourcing but was a bit unsure of the process, I mean, where do you start?
What tasks would I be able to pass on, and was I giving up control of tasks that I should still be doing?
Irene, however, listened carefully when I explained about my business and the tasks I was doing and made some suggestions that she thought might work for me.
Once we got started she continued to check in with me to make sure I was happy with the work, and I was able to make small changes.
It didn’t take me long to see that Irene ran a very professional ship and that my business was in good hands.
Working with Admin Army has made a big difference to how my business is run as it has freed up time for me to focus on other aspects of the business, and it has been one of the best decision we made. Highly recommended.”
Susy Egneus, Bodyworkz
“Irene has taken a huge weight off my shoulders in managing our Facebook presence, and is doing a much better job at it than I ever was! She’s reliable, incredibly efficient and nothing is ever a problem. I’m always impressed with the time and effort that Irene puts in researching and coming up with new ideas and things to try out, and that has made a huge difference to our interactions with customers. There are so many options out there but I’m so pleased that I chose Irene and the Admin Army team – I highly recommend them to anyone!”
Haley Collier, Bubblebubs NZ
“We are a not for profit organisation and Irene kindly approached us and offered us her services. We are absolutely thrilled with her professional manner and extensive ability. She has been able to manage all of our requests competently and has taken initiative on many occasions to make our website more interactive. She comes up with ideas that are constantly evolving, We couldn’t recommend her more highly to anyone who is thinking of using her service. ”
Christina McBeth, Nourished for Nil
“Irene and Admin Army take care of all bookkeeping and payroll tasks for our busy Manawatu car yard. Her attention to detail and admin support mean we can focus on growing our business safe in the knowledge that everything is being taken care of. Irene is not only thorough but is easy-going and always willing to talk through any queries we might have. I highly recommend Irene and the Admin Army team to any small business looking to reduce their admin burden. Working with her will change your life!”
Tom Rolton, Car Fox
“So your sinking in that damn paperwork and can’t get the shit sorted while running your business and getting more stressed while not keeping up ? Doing lees because of the excess stress? who do you call ? ADMIN ARMY!
When it comes to Virtual Assistants, there are plenty out there, but Irene and the Admin Army team sit miles above the rest. Their quality is outstanding, and they really work alongside you to make things in your business happen – I don’t know how I managed without them! Knowing that they are taking care of certain tasks every month, means I don’t have to give those tasks another thought, giving me the freedom to focus on developing and selling my product range. If you’re considering hiring a VA for anything, I would highly recommend engaging with Admin Army first.
Irene saved the day, got us back on track, set up the backup and support I wanted to offer my clients while still focusing on what I do best developing and selling products to help your fur-babies. We had a chat made a plan and went for it and we thrilled with her constant support and efficiency!”
Fiona Robertson, Newflands
“Having always been a paper and pen type of gal, I had several very full books of notes that needed some sort of coherent ordering. Having already worked alongside Irene, I knew her work ethic and integrity meant that my notes would be respected and well managed. In an extremely quick turn around (especially over the holidays) I got back all my notes beautifully typed up and easily ready for me to start the year organised.
I have no hesitation recommending Admin Army. The hours they have saved me more than covers the cost of the service.”
AJ Pipe, Accountability Coach
“Irene from Admin Army is fantastic to work with. She is organised and responsive, working within the scope of the project provided and regularly checking-in with queries and progress updates.
A vital part of my business growth!”
Fiona Hall, Kiffin Limited
“Irene and her team are just AMAZING. They have helped my business become automated and taken so much of the hard slog out of the admin side of my business I feel I really have the time again to work on my business and not in it so much. Irene has suggested areas for systems and areas of improvement that I did not know even existed. Highly professional and highly recommended. Thank you for your hard work! I just wish I had jumped into having a VA sooner.”
Carla Lowe, Paint Me Vintage
Tauranga, Bay of Plenty
“Irene’s Xero and GST training and assistance has been amazing. She made it so easy, with a relaxed, empowering teaching style. Thank you Irene, you certainly relieved my pain points!
I highly recommend Irene’s services, a great investment. “
