Service Description

While I am relatively new in telecommuting I do have more than 3 decades experience in sales administration and customer service. I was fortunate enough to learn basic computer skills during the 1980's when the companies I worked for were changing over to a computerized system and I was instrumental in transferring clients' records from a manual system onto the companies' mainframe computer.
I changed to Personal Computers since 1997 using Microsoft Excel and Word programs for my administrative functions. The spreadsheets and indent forms I used were created by myself. I am intent on providing a personal service to prospective clients focusing mainly on basic administrative work. I work in a dedicated home office which I have equipped with a desktop and laptop PC's (both installed with MS Home Office 2010), printer/scanner/copier as well as an extra scanner/copier and printer.
I can offer the following services:
Data Entry
Data Processing
Spreadsheets (creating & updating)
Stock Contol
Sales Administration
Order Processing
Writing
