Client Testimonials

“Coast & Country have a long term relationship with Value Based Solutions who are working with us to undertake rigorous and systems-based service reviews across a range of service areas. Having successfully assisted us in modernising our Repairs and Maintenance Services, we are now finalising our Income and Area Management Service areas. The reviews so far have delivered real efficiencies and cost savings within these key service areas and have put us on a very firm foundation for the future.”

Iain Sim, Chief Executive,

"Wirral Partnership Homes are delighted to be working with Value Based Solutions. We have made a commitment to embed Value for Money in everything that the company does and VBS have been instrumental in helping us put together our Value for Money strategy and plan. Our initial work with them has identified some very significant savings and we have every confidence that the next stage of joint working will do likewise."

Patrick McCarthy, Deputy Chief Executive and Company Secretary,

“For the first time in 30 years, we have beaten our budget using the Value Based Management System” “I see this process as the missing link in our search for greater efficiency as we can only deliver improved services if we create the resources to do so. VBM has made a tremendous difference to our business. The first year we used the system was the first time in 30 years that we have beaten our budget. We are hoping to do the same this year”

Anne Seddon, Group Finance Director,
Vicinity Group

“Consultants are only as good as their recommendation. When talking to another CEO of a housing association I was sufficiently impressed to want to find out more.” “VBM techniques have energised a new approach throughout the organisation. We are travelling down a detailed route for realising the efficiency savings identified”
