    Spotlight review

    Spotlight is great. The management reporting aid it provides is so valuable as an advisor and triggers many important discussions around business performance that may not otherwise be considered. Easy to use, able to be tailored and super responsive support team when needed too.

    Helps customers see their business clearly

    I have tried various visualisation tools and dashboards and Spotlight is the easiest to use without having to engage integrators. It turns financial reports in to visualisations that save advisors time spotting trends and helps the customer understand their business. Best of all is there customer success team. They are the most proactive of any company I have dealt with constantly providing relevant ideas
