As a foreigner, when you set up your business in the United Arab Emirates, the task is nothing but hectic and confusing. The local laws and customs along with the language barrier pose a massive hurdle for an entrepreneur.
That is not where the problems stop, with the constant amendments in-laws and the swift market changes, the entrepreneur keeps on coming across these issues repetitively. So how do you handle it? Simple, you hire PRO services in Dubai.
What is meant by PRO Services?
Any business in the UAE, one way or the other, needs the services of a PRO. The public relations officer or PRO serves as a government liaison to your business and ensures that your day to day tasks run smoother than before.
One of the most used PRO services is in the department of customer relationship management but they also offer a wide array of services, such as dealing with the Department of Economic Development and other government bodies.
So, in short, PRO services mean, using the services of a public relations officer to deal with the legal and government dealings while you can focus on your work with ease.
Why do you need PRO Services?
There are multiple ways that business benefits from the use of PRO services in Dubai. Today, however, I shall mention the ones that stand out the most.
- Reduction in Time Wasted
I am pretty sure, that everyone has heard the famous saying ‘’time is money’’ and I can vouch for the saying. This world, this economy and success are heavily dependent on what we do with our time. With the services of a PRO, you deal with your business activities while he or she declutters (by dealing with government or legal issues) your pathway to success.
- Ease in Establishing Your Business
As I mentioned before, setting up your business in the UAE is frustrating in the beginning. Finding a local sponsor, or getting your business license, your visa to travel to the UAE, and catering to all the documentation. These all seem daunting to a new entrepreneur, but with the help of corporate PRO services, it is catered to immediately.
- Keeping up to Date with The Market
Market speculation is not a bad practice. If your business model has it, go for it! But what has known to be effective is customer feedback. Customer relationship management is pivotal in analyzing how the market is going to react or change according to various scenarios and a PRO will help you in realizing those changes, keeping you a step ahead of your competition.
- Saving Factor
Having an inhouse PRO department is costly to establish and ever more costly to maintain. When you go to hire PRO services, you not only save money for your business, but you use that saved amount to further develop your business.
- Brand Image
Having a positive brand image should be important to any business, anywhere in the world. But it is a must in the UAE. A PRO works tirelessly to ensure that your business activities, the products produced or the services provided are welcomed in bright light, not a negative one.
What are the services provided by a PRO?
By now, you know how beneficial a PRO is to your business. When I say business, it does not mean that the services are only beneficial to your company on paper, in fact, these services vary from aiding your business entity to your labor force. The services of a Pro include:
- Providing your labor with prioritizing visa’s
- Aiding in LLC company formation
- Making sure that your product or service is trademarked and copyrighted
- Renewing licenses annually
- Issuance of an ID card for the United Arab Emirates
- Acquisition of a trading license in the UAE
- Acquiring NOC and other approval documents form the Government
- Issuance of immigration cards
- Finding local sponsors for your business
As you can see, there are so many reasons to hire the services of a public relations officer in Dubai or the UAE. Even though you could handle doing all their tasks yourself, you will definitely end up wasting a lot of precious time while your competitors will surpass you in delivery.
