What GetFriday can handle


At GetFriday, we can handle almost any task, business or personal, that doesn't require our physical presence. If it can be carried out over the internet, via email, fax, telephone, or chat, we can handle it.

Think of us as a regular assistant who is sitting in the next room. Anything that you would ask that assistant to do, we could probably handle. Except that the next room is in another country, so we can't handle anything physical. We can't get you your daily cup of coffee, but we might be able to get someone else to deliver it to you.

Not Your Run of the Mill Tasks

We've handled some pretty crazy tasks. Here are some of the "rarer" tasks we've handled.
 1. We've handled wake calls, calling in with the news for the day and traffic and weather updates.       Then calling back 10 minutes later to make sure the client was awake.
 2. We organized a huge clean up. Our client's plumbing went awry. We got it fixed and cleaned up the       mess.
 3. We helped find a lost dog. Fido's home safe now.
 4. We helped find a lost client. He was lost in a new city. We found out where he was, got a cab to       pick him up and take him to his destination.
 5. We lent a hand to a client trying to lose weight. We found and bought items that fit in with his diet       plan. Called him up with reminders and charted the progress.
 6. We organized a wedding. Photographers, locations, invitations, RSVPs...
 7. We've intervened in arguments between couples. Obviously not something we like to do on a       regular basis.
 8. We've taught algebra to a sixth grader.
 9. We got the snow shoveled after a blizzard.
10. We've organized birthday parties for two year olds. Clowns and all.

What GetFriday can't handle

1. Anything illegal. Won't be done. Obviously.
2. Anything unethical. Please don't ask us to write your Econ 236 final paper.
3. Anything that is not exactly comfortable as per "normal" business standards. We'd rather not help     you catalogue risquè lingerie. It would be a little strange for us at the office.

We realize that this list is a little vague, especially point 3. If you don't know whether your task fits under these categories, then please contact us and ask.
