At the core of the PitchPoint team sits its six founding members, each of whom have worked together for over a decade dedicated to establishing greater levels of excellence serving the financial services and other industries. It is PitchPoint's opinion that success is born of shared and common experiences coalescing into a proven, repeatable set of capabilities. Whilw technology options are plentiful and varied, many have yet to establish the parameters for success through a tried and true experience base - resulting in unavoidable architectural, process and engagement challenges.
At PitchPoint, customers need not suffer through the uncertainties of new and constantly changing management teams.
