+ a vision underway

For those of you who don’t already know, Alyssa, my parents and I have started a new venture together. It all began with some needs that my parents electrical business had. I watched as they struggled to find a fitting solution, even going so far as to implement one before realizing that there wasn’t a solution out there that fit. After some discussion, we they decided to hire me to build a small-scale custom system that would address their payroll and job costing needs. As I dove into the research for the project, I quickly saw the great potential that such a system would have.

I was not alone in this revelation. Dad made comment to the same effect, as mom–being the primary user of the developing system–raved about how easy it made her life. The four of us sat down and decided that our little project should be given the chance to reach the potential we all saw.

Thus began Vantage Payroll Services, the first leg of a larger vision to provide businesses with the services they need to focus on what they do best. I spent the vast majority of my time on various aspects of this business, from getting legal requirements in place to the actual coding of the system and hiring contractors for various pieces of the puzzle. Alyssa serves as our marketing guru, putting together our literature and materials and generally directing the look and feel. All four of us are active in the direction and visioneering of the business. Dad will become more involved as we dive into the actual sales portion of our beginning, and mom remains a crucial part of the development, helping me find and address various needs. She also oversees the financial aspects of the venture.
As it stands, we are about a week out from having a final contract, fully operational and informative website, and brochures about our various lines of service. I will attempt to keep you posted on our progress, but feel free to nose around the site when it goes live and email me or post any questions.
