Who is Solpoint?

Ah, that’s a tricky question, because Solpoint isn’t just a person – we are a whole accounts team, handpicked specifically for a broad range of specialties, approaches and even languages. Whatever it is that your business needs – a highly-efficient accounts clerk, perhaps, or a no-nonsense receivables specialist? – we’ve got the right person for you.

There are, however, a few traits we share in common. We’re all:

Knowledgeable

Everybody here is a qualified accountant, bookkeeper or accounts clerk. We’re all numbers-nerds, too, and insatiably-curious problem-solvers, and we’re determined to always stay on the cutting edge of business technology. Seriously: it takes a special sort to work at Solpoint.

Collaborative

As much as we know about business efficiency (spoiler: quite a lot!), you still know your business better than us. That’s why we work so closely with our clients – to find out what you need, what you can do with a little help from us, and what you’d like us to take off your hands.

Available

This is where having a team really shines. Whether you’re after a regular meeting, urgent help or just a quick bit of advice, we’re only a phone call away. In-house bookkeepers are good, but they’re only one person – we’ve got as many people as you need, for whatever you need, whenever you need us.
