Virgate, the dynamic finance team, has announced a new partnership with software provider 4PointZero to help hospitality, leisure and retail operators revolutionise their approach to operations and finance.

The partnership will give Virgate customers industry-leading, real-time financial and operational reports, in an easy to digest format, all accessible in one place and at the click of a button. Uniquely,

4PointZero offers dashboards that have been designed specifically for hospitality, incorporating many sector specific features, including insight on ‘click and collect’ sales and cash-ups to help protect against fraud.

Sarah Travell, Founder and CEO of Virgate, said: “Hospitality and retail businesses have been two of the hardest hit sectors of the economy as a result of the pandemic, and have had to pivot and adopt new technologies in order to survive. This new appreciation of the transformational power of digital solutions is here to stay and we’re excited to be helping businesses and operators take a modern approach to managing their finances.

“We take a digital-led approach, ensuring our clients have access to the very best technology and systems to simplify their finance operations and to extract quicker, better information to drive performance. Our partnership with 4PointZero is a brilliant illustration of this – and we are delighted to be able to bring our customers live reporting, 24/7 access and some transformational analytical tools. It’s a partnership that will make a genuine difference and help our clients through the on-going rebuild and recovery ahead, beyond the pandemic and with the further easing of restrictions.”

Jamie Allen, Managing Partner at 4PointZero, said: “After meeting Virgate through an advisory group, it soon became apparent how aligned we were in the solutions we wanted to deliver to business owners. Very few providers deliver sector specific technology and expertise for hospitality businesses of all shapes and sizes.

“Together, our goal is to provide our customers with the only finance package and services truly designed and specifically focused on meeting the needs of these sectors. I am extremely excited by the level of value we can provide to business owners together by ensuring businesses have access to the best tools and advice at the right price to enable them to bounce back and perform better than ever.”

Virgate and 4PointZero are already working with more than 480 franchised and independent units across the hospitality, retail and leisure sectors between them.
