Why MAP?

Dedicated professionals providing a full and systemised finance function to digital creative agencies.

Why was MAP born?

As an Agency develops into an established and mature business, it has more complex requirements for its finance function.

At a functional level, it has to collect significant cash in from its clients, pay suppliers on time, and make payroll.

At a strategic level, it needs to have a clear financial roadmap, detailed budgeting and reliable and insightful reporting.

MAP was born to provide Agencies with a full finance function, with industry expertise and a thorough understanding of the latest financial technology and processes to bring financial rigour to agencies across the UK.
