  • VantagePoint partnered with us to transform our budgeting, planning and forecasting process. With their help we’ve improved our reporting, have great access to real insight and a far more automated process than our previous Excel heavy world. The team’s attention to detail and problem solving abilities made them very easy to work with.

    Darragh Hurley CFO, Arachas

  • Straight from the kick-off we had confidence that VantagePoint would deliver...

    We are delighted to have continued our strong relationship post delivery and would have no hesitation in considering VantagePoint for future projects.

    Stuart Sinclair Finance Technology Manager, Halma Plc

  • There's a lot of experience within the business.

    VantagePoint's ability to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in and help out, has been much more significant than I've experienced before. Their willingness to provide a viable solution has been strong.

    Rowan Eatough Head of FP&A, Accelerant

  • I found the team at VantagePoint very professional, easy to talk to, easy to get on with, available and very good at giving you updates. 

    Robert Hart VP Group Finance, Aferian

  • We first started with VantagePoint to do a project to help us determine our finance strategy. We've got a growth plan over the next five years but we needed a finance strategy to go alongside that. We're quite a lean finance team so if you're trying to do a big transformation project, reaching out and using consultants makes a big difference.

    Naomi Ingram Financial Controller, Aferian
