How are we different from other outsourcing firms?
Real World Experience. Our partners have first hand experience in building successful business infrastructures. Our backgrounds scale from private self-funded to Fortune 500 companies. We have been Founders, Management Team members, and valuable employees. We have managed our businesses through startup issues, Venture Capital financings, rapid growth, M&A activities, and an IPO.
Our experiences are diverse: Finance, Accounting, Human Resource Management, Sales, Marketing, IT Management, Software Development, Office Administration, Customer Service, Operations. We have built teams and Best Practices to support these functions. We have assembled business infrastructures at incredible speed to hit aggressive growth targets without compromising quality. Our backgrounds provide us with a dynamic understanding of our clients’ needs from a perspective only acquired through direct experience. This is what sets ArcPoint Partners apart from other back office outsourcing firms.
We’re not a “CPA Firm.” CPA Firms are phenomenal for tax, audits, and complex transactions. We work very closely with many CPA Firms when our clients need these services. But most likely, the business experience of a CPA Firm is very different from the experience needed by entrepreneurs who power self-funded and privately backed businesses.
We don’t operate like a CPA firm. Everything is different about us – our fee structure is different; we are focused solely on your back office tasks; and we are actively involved in your business. We are with you every step, every day.
