VFD Pro Portal
This is where you log on to VFD Pro, add clients, synchronise data and access the extensive range of Reports, Analysis, Growth Planning and Exit Models.

Demonstration Reports (VFD Branded)
Extremely valuable for training and to demonstrate the services you can offer to clients; the demonstration company includes a full set of example reports for you to use.
Early access to new reports and models
As an integral part of your VFD Academy membership, as well as being able to access the ongoing technical training and in person tech support, you will also be invited to help shape new reports, exit and growth planning models before they are released to the wider market.
‘Business Overview’ Connections
If having discussed your Financial Advisory services, your client does not want to pay for one of your more comprehensive service packages, you can use this connection to generate the incredibly valuable Business Overview Report for as many clients as you wish.
The Compliance+ connection gives you everything you need to transform client relationships, making them future focused, highly valued and in so doing substantially increasing fee income with no additional time required. This allows you to quickly produce the ‘Client Discussion Model’ and ‘Business Overview Report’.
‘Business Development’ Connections
To help you ‘wow’ clients and introduce your Financial Advisory services, you can generate a full set of Growth Planning Models, Reports, and Analysis for an unlimited number of clients.
This allows you to run reports, rectify any bookkeeping issues and re-run reports before presenting them to clients, or if you do not manage the bookkeeping, to highlight issues and offer a service to help your client rectify bookkeeping issues.
