ViVO Smart Medical Devices Ltd's Problem

financial director services for medical device company in Nottingham

When ViVO first started trading, they had a great service that customers loved and new product innovations to expand the business. However, one of the major challenges was the need for a Financial Director who could help and support them with their ambitious growth plans. 

Having identified potential grants and loan funding to develop new product innovations in Rehabilitation and Trauma Care, they then needed to put in place robust financial controls across the business. The CEO and Founder of ViVO is a health technology entrepreneur developing medical devices and health technology products and has had previous roles working as an executive for Colgate, Unilever, and Honeywell in the UK and internationally.

ViVO was founded in 2011 and has been a valued client of Archimedia Accounts since its inception. Our support has extended throughout their growth journey from company set-up and registration right through to compliance. Archimedia Accounts continues to provide accountancy services and advice across the entire finance function, including bookkeeping, payroll, pensions, accounts compliance, tax planning, financial control, and financial director duties.
