Great system!

Easy to use and produces great reports both for periodic reporting and forecasting. The nice visuals and easy to read financials means clients can easily understand the content.

Switching to Spotlight Reporting has saved us so much time and effort as we run consolidated reports and three-way forecasts across multiple entities. We love how easy it is to customise the reports and show relevant charts to our business. The team at Spotlight Reporting are incredibly responsive, and we could not be more impressed.

Once reports are set up, very easy to use

I've used Spotlight for a number of years now. The reports are easy to set up. I've added graphs, autotagged text etc to make the reports user friendly and quick to reproduce each month etc. Whenever I've needed to support, the Spotlight support team have been very helpful.
