Are you a business-owner who is a minority, a woman, a military veteran, disabled, socially or economically disadvantaged? Business-owners with these attributes may be missing out on winning contracts from Fortune 1000 companies and Supplier Diversity Representatives because they don't know about certification.
Certified companies are growing at a much faster pace and winning bigger, better contracts.
Are you ready to think bigger. National? Global? Yes, you CAN do it.
Would you be amazed if a Fortune 1000 purchaser called asking if you would like to be "invited" to bid?
Most companies are not even aware they are eligible for certification. Take a look at our "Certifications" page for a list. You can also call us at 808-253-9700 or "email us today" firstname.lastname@example.org

"Supplier diversity representatives are the heroes of certification, we're here to assure
your vendors are meticulously vetted."
Vantage Points' primary obligation is to protect the integrity and reputation of your Supplier Diversity Program. You work hard to locate certified, capable vendors, we work just as hard to make sure your interests and brand are protected.
We have experience with de-certification proceedings due to our many years on M/WBE certification and appeals committees. De-certification is highly litigious and painful for all involved. We never want you to be put in that position
Our proprietary 30-45-minute FREE Assessment is unique. It's designed to assist the company address deficiencies we find. Additionally, our line of questions uniquely detect potential deception on the part of the applicant.
Taking the time required for meticulous vetting is not a value proposition for a company like ours but, money isn't everything.
Speaking of money, our pricing is revealed on our website. NO up-selling, NO unexpected fees, NO surprises. The last thing newly certified firms need is a hard sell and on-going exorbitant fees for services available to them generally free of charge.
