Vantage Point allowed us to reduce our dependency on traditional consulting firms. We now use Vantage Point Consultants for all of our Associate/ Analyst level project roles, significantly reducing our consultancy spend.
Vantage Point has an interesting approach. I have used, and continue to encourage the use of Vantage consultants across my business, with much success.
We use Vantage Point because their consultants are energetic and hard working. We are always looking for new ways to reduce costs and increase quality, and the people we’ve had from Vantage Point have hit the mark on both counts.
I think you have a great concept at Vantage Point. All of our VP consultants are doing wonderfully well and the feedback we’ve had from the managers has been fantastic.
