Best reporting solution for your budget!

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Limelight has been a tremendous partner that we are extremely grateful for. 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. The people and service was truly the key as they tailored it to our liking. They are truly a partner that listened and executed well to fulfill our vision.

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.

Excellent and Flexible Tool

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: While our implementation had been a bit rocky, I have been very pleased with Limelight since they. They continue to add features to the product and make it more valuable. Their customer service has been very responsive any time I do have an issue. Our [SENSITIVE CONTENT] also loves being able to see the reporting by just logging in.

Pros:

The automatic import of data from our accounting system is invaluable for reducing work and human error. The flexibility of this software for building reports has helped us automate much of the manual reporting we were doing.

Cons:

For more complex reports, the load time can be slow, especially if you have a lot of people in the system.

FlightAware

3.0 2 years ago

Comments: Unfortunately our business needs changed during implementation due to acquisition but we were able to adjust during implementation to suit our new FP&A needs from our parent company.

Pros:

The data import from our ERP and timely and accurate, and the reports generated for financial statements and internal reporting are critical to our monthly financial review.

Cons:

Report building is a little complicated, but the trade-off is the support staff is very responsive in helping you trouble shoot your report building problems.

Excellent customer service but difficulties in modeling a complex workforce

4.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: I appreciated Limelight's ability to apply logic to benefits, merit increases and bonuses. I found the customer service team to be extremely helpful and responsive. We struggled to model a complex workforce with numerous seasonal positions working in both the beginning and end of the fiscal year. Exports of reports & templates to excel required manipulation to obtain the necessary information.

Pros:

Responsiveness of customer service and data analytics / coding team

Cons:

Difficulty in modeling a non-traditional workforce
