How Does VPM Differ From Other Placement Service Companies?



VPM differs from online placement companies the following ways:

  • No upfront fees; no fees at all
  • Speed to hire; Communicate with candidates in minutes not weeks
  • Control; Interview as many candidates at your convenience as possible
  • No middle man; The business owner pays  less and the VA makes more
  • The virtual assistant is a contract worker dedicated to your company
  • Easy access to reporting and timecards
  • Online industry specific free training for virtual assistants (Coming Q2 2022)

No Upfront Fees

With the VPM platform, you do not have to pay any upfront placement or training fees.  As a matter of fact, there are no subscription fees or platform fees.  The only charge to you, the business owner, are payment processing fees (1% for ACH, 3% for credit card) that are passed through from the payment service to you.  

Speed To Hire

With a placement service company, it can take days or even weeks before they present a few candidates to you for a final interview.  If you do not like any of the candidates that they present it can take another few weeks. With VPM Solutions you can post a job on the platform, get instantly matched with our TalentMatch algorithm and invite candidates to apply to your job within minutes. Post a job and see applications come pouring in.


With VPM Solutions you have complete control over the hiring process.  You can review as many or as few resume cards, invite people and interview as many candidates as you like.  With a placement service company they only present a few candidates for you to review.

 You have control of the hourly rate, as it is set by you when posting a job.  

The control does not stop at the hiring process. With VPM Solutions you can easily pay a bonus, change an hourly rate, review and dispute time cards or simply upload documents to a workspace.  With VPM Solutions you have total control on how you manage your virtual team members.

No Middle Man

There is no middle man when using VPM Solutions.  When you post a job, you enter an hourly range the job will pay.  When a virtual assistant creates a profile, they enter their desired hourly rate.  VPM Solutions promotes a free market enterprise, all rates are negotiable between the two parties.  With a traditional placement service company, they will negotiate an hourly rate with you, the business owner.  They will then hire a team member at a much lower rate.  This allows them to keep the difference.  The challenge with this setup is the virtual team member is making a lower wage.  If they get an opportunity for a very small increase, they will quit and go to another company.  This usually occurs once they are all trained up and ready to produce for your company.   By using VPM Solutions, the virtual assistant can get a higher rate even though you are paying a lower rate.  This means that they are less likely to get offers for more money.  Even if they do, if they are happy with your company they are less likely to leave because they are getting paid a higher wage.

Dedicated To Your Company

With some companies, they will have a few assistants or a call center team bill your company.  This means that you do not have a dedicated team member.  The VPM Solutions platform was created with a 1:1 relationship in mind.  When you hire a contractor full-time, that contractor will only contract with you.  VPM prevents virtual assistants from entering time for two different jobs on the same date and time.

Easy Access To Reporting

VPM Solutions has real-time reporting that can be accessed at any time.  View timecards, current payments or historical payments with a click of a button.  With traditional placement companies you receive little to no reporting.  If you do receive reporting it may be weekly but it is not on demand.


VPM Solutions understands how difficult it is to hire a new team member and then have to teach them the very basics of property management, literally starting with the lingo we use in this industry.  VPM solutions training is designed to teach virtual assistants the basics of property management by training them on the lifecycle of property management.  From advertising a unit, leasing, move in, maintenance, move out and turning a unit, and everything else in between.  

When a virtual assistant takes a training course, they will take a test.  Once they pass the test they will receive a VPM solutions certification for that class which is displayed on their profile.  Now you will have the ability to hire virtual assistants that have proven training.
