Client Testimonial

“We brought vfdnet in to review our existing management accounts information, asking them to recommend a standard group reporting package of reports and implement them after our approval. The package of reports included Profit & Loss, Cashflow and Balance Sheet data, both historic and forecast. This new group reporting has provided the owners and senior management with valuable information for key strategic decisions on the future direction of the operating businesses. I would recommend vfdnet for a thorough approach, and for their implementation which was handled with sensitivity and ensured buy-in from operating businesses.”
