Limelight 3 mths in

2019-05-02

The support I am getting from the limelight team is the best I have ever experienced with a software company. I reach out to them, and they are immediately trying to help me out. Great group of people.

Pros

I can present data in report format which is much more useful than the typical dashboard presentation views in other tools.

Cons

Some small tweaks to report development would go along way.

We gained faster reporting and analysis

2019-01-15

Information is so much more readily available to our senior management.

Pros

It has a better user interface than the native TM1 software.

Cons

We were hoping to have Single Sign On right out of the gate but owing to our specific environment in our company, it did not go smoothly during implementation and we needed to push it to the next phase.

Cons

It's super easy to use and allows instant reporting for financial presentations.

Limelight review

2019-01-22

They never give up until they figure out how to get what we want and have all the necessary knowledge within their organization be it accounting or programming and technical interface with various plateforms.

Pros

Being in the service industry, our most important expense is wages and it happens to be the most complex expense in our organization combining multiple collective agreements, progression rates, multiple benefits, and also incudes multiple funds , regions and departments.

Cons

Limelight was able to provide us with all the necessary features so there is really nothing that I do not like in the software. It does take a bit of getting used to to navigate the steps but Limelight provided training and went so far as provide us with our own personal how to instructions .

A big upgrade

2021-05-25

As our single largest expense item, workforce planning is critical.

Pros

The workforce planning tool has been the biggest improvement to our processes, providing insights and projection accuracy that we didn't have previously.

Cons

This was a new process for us, and we have 35+ end-users in limelight.

Limelight Report Writer

2019-01-16

Pros

Ease of use is a big plus as well as ability to create your own reports.

Cons

In the future if Limelight can bolt on to ERP for real time drill-down ability, I would be interested in that product.

Best in Market

2019-01-16

Limelight allows considerable flexibility to drill-down within reports to see what was driving a specific reported result or variance.

Pros

We reviewed several sw solutions that were much more expensive and Limelight was the most flexible and simple to use. The team at Limelight really "gets it" -- they should open a recruiting service!

Cons

Some basic items had to be requested -- such as printing on 11x17 paper -- but Limelight is nimble and addresses any concerns.

Still at the starting line but excited for where this platform will take my team

2019-05-02

If every sales team and integration team were like Limelight, the business world would be a better place.

Pros

Its ability to communicate with our accounting software, virtually seamlessly, promised to increase our ROI on the time committed to completing variance reports and conducting variance analysis.

Cons

So far, I am extremely pleased with the entire process, as well as the amazing team that introduced us to Limelight along with their colleagues who have worked with us to build the platform to suit.

Best reporting solution for your budget!

2019-04-25

They listen, execute and advise on best practices to fulfill our reporting needs and goals.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use, create, administer and maintain all functions around the reporting. We find it a breath of fresh air with a dramatic leap forward from previous solutions and competitors.

Cons

There are only minor enhancements that we would like for the software however, the limelight team listened well and already have those improvements in the roadmap in the very near future.

Currently in implementation....

2019-06-07

We have not yet pushed Limelight into a production environment, but are confident that the cloud-based planning and reporting solution will greatly improve efficiencies and controls with our annual planning and quarterly forecasting process.

Pros

The implementation process has been proceeding on schedule and our implementation consultant truly understands the FP&A function which has added great value to the process.

Cons

At this point in our process, I have not identified any cons and the application is on a path to function as advertised and provide the value and efficiencies we were seeking as we move away from an Excel based planning tool.

Limelight Software

2019-06-07

It eliminated most of our Excel workbooks that we had been using for budgeting and centralized all our data. Currently working on making some minor tweaks to make things easier on the end user, and the support received from Limelight has been great.

Pros

The software is very easy to use.

Cons

Our company structure is very complex which made it challenging at times to integrate certain aspects of our budget into Limelight.

Limelight Financial Software

2019-01-21

Our company struggled to pull financial information and our monthly reporting package was over 120 tabs in Excel just to make it work.

Pros

It's very user friendly and easy to pick up.

Cons

We have no cons, it works exactly like we had hoped.

Lots of value add

2019-01-25

Since the time we implemented Limelight, it has been so easy to close the month and easily figure out any miscoding, it's been an amazing experience so far.

Pros

The ease of slicing and dicing the data to get the answers you need, easy filtering.

Cons

Needs a sort and search field on payroll resource planning template.

Slice data any way you want to!

2019-01-24

Pros

The continuous support of their staff has also been key to our analytical growth as an organization.

Cons

The only real con would be to standardize more of the expressions rather than having to know code (ie: previous or next member).
