About Mi PA: Review and comparison
Mi PA is a virtual receptionist and Personal Assistant (PA) outsourcing company. The owner used her experience working as a PA and the knowledge she gained about the business world to become an entrepreneur and found the company in 2008.
This Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) firm provides telephone, diary, and scheduling services for professionals, so they can focus on profit-making and business-building activities instead of being tied to their phones and email inboxes.
Mi PA Outsourcing
Most of the 30 to 40 team members work from the central fulfillment office and headquarters in Manchester, UK.
In addition to their PA and secretarial services, Mi PA offers Mi TV, a weekly video series with over 165 episodes about the benefits of outsourcing to receptionists and PAs to free up time for core business tasks. The videos also offer general productivity and business advice to entrepreneurs and executives.
Mi PA’s BPO services and pricings
Mi PA’s staff consists of PAs and call experts who take over tasks for entrepreneurs and business executives so they can escape the desk and spend time on core sales and administration tasks.

The company offers a 7-day free trial, after which the firm will calculate the cost of services based on the volume of work. The Mi Call answering service starts at £1.75 per day, and the Mi PA service starts as low as £6 per day, depending on each client’s needs.
How Mi PA outshines its competition
The founder brings her years of experience as a PA to the table, so her understanding of what businesses want in a receptionist or assistant helps her provide better service.
Mi PA prides itself on friendliness and how easy it is to set up services and work with them. The office culture is intense but fun, as illustrated by the “Office Boss” who gets first billing on their Team page: Ralph, the owner’s Cavapoo.
The company’s core values are:
- Find a way, or make one
- Efficiency in all ways
- Love what you do
The company’s experience working for over 500 companies and answering over 2000 calls a day gives them an edge in the marketplace.
