    High quality management reporting

    We have been using Spotlight reporting and forecasting for client advisory meetings. Its quick and easy to use and produces professional and high quality reports, customised to each client needs. Its also exactly what the banks need for loan applications.

    Forecasting Saviour

    The one thing as an accountant I hate and that is spreadsheets. Spotlights forecasting is a simple, fantastic tool that allows for an easy integrated cashflow forecast to be prepared. The banks love them!
