The recent epidemic of COVID-19 brought the world to a near standstill and left life around us so volatile.

We know that for a business to win, it needs to be where it’s customers are. Today, roughly half the world’s population (3.2 billion out of 7 billion) is on social media and an average user spends 2 hours and 22 minutes of his day socializing online.

This is where virtual assistants can come to the rescue! There has been a wide growth and acceptance of using virtual assistants at work.
