It does not require hundreds of hours of training like other software does. It does exactly what our company needs and the entire Finance department was able grasp the functionality within minutes.

Nachteile:

I don't think there is anything we disliked about Limelight, even the pricing is reasonable, so nothing to complain about.

Best reporting solution for your budget!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile:

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.

Nachteile:

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 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile:

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.

Nachteile:

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

5,0 vor 4 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: From implementation to full usage the experience with Limelight has been nothing short of Stellar! The Customer Service is far superior to any other company I have worked with in the past.

Vorteile:

Customer Service and Ease of Use. The Implementation & Report Writing Team was nothing short of Stellar

Nachteile:

There was really nothing that I didn't like about Limelight

FlightAware

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile:

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.

Nachteile:

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 vor 3 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile:

Responsiveness of customer service and data analytics / coding team

Nachteile:

Difficulty in modeling a non-traditional workforce

A big upgrade

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: As our single largest expense item, workforce planning is critical. Limelight has helped us gain more accurate projection capabilities into our workforce, utilizing employee-specific data, linked with actual payroll data (from ADP) and the ability to see historical paid hours and project specific hours by employee into the future. Often our prior projections involved carrying forward current month actuals, maybe including new hires we knew about, but often inaccurate. Now we have projection employee counts, accurate paid time (even during holidays and breaks) for nearly 2,000 employees

Vorteile:

The workforce planning tool has been the biggest improvement to our processes, providing insights and projection accuracy that we didn't have previously. We're able to get both employee counts and paid time historically as well as projected values through our projection period.

Nachteile:

While the workforce planning module has been the most useful tool to us, it's also been the most challenging to set up and run. This was a new process for us, and we have 35+ end-users in limelight. Most of our challenges have been creating an environment with intentionally limited input options so users don't "break" the calcs. Limelight's support team has been very responsive, even after go-live implementation, in helping solve our data input and template challenges. One other item that has been a blessing and a challenge is the report books function. While this has been improving even in the first 6 months since implementation, the process for setting up a report book, identifying errors when the book fails, and outputs to excel are still a little challenging, and not as user friendly as much as the rest of the system. This is an area where I can see opportunities for big future improvements.

Limelight 3 Year Review

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: We had a great sales team, great technicians, and great sales customer service. Our only issue has been the technicians over engineering important pieces of our environment that has made it hard for me, the internal administrator, to navigate without help; but the limelight customer success team has been great and straightening this out for me.

Vorteile:

Our most impactful feature is our forecasting process, and it has become the basis of all major decisions

Nachteile:

Our biggest issue has been over engineering. During the set up phase we had great technicians but they didnt quite seem to grasp the whole picture. Anytime i am trying to change my global variables or scenarios i have run into issues because of over engineering. We are working to get it fixed, and the customer service is great.

Limelight review

4,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: It's still relatively early, but so far so good.

Vorteile:

Once set up API connectivity brings in balance data monthly with a lot of ease.Customer support has been great.There is a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it there is a good deal of flexibility with report building to represent many different kinds of calculations

Nachteile:

Excel upload is not standard. Each upload type would have to be built by them (at extra cost) rather than being able to just use a relatively standard template.Not their fault, but the API call for transactional data has no flexibility. All transactions have to be loaded which is a drag on API call time and size.In order to see the transactional line items you have to be at the lowest level of dimension. It would be nice if you could have a roll-up but still be able to see the transactional detail rather than needing to expand down however many levels.Building reports has an Excel feel, but not the flexibility. You have to actually type a cell reference rather than being able to use mouse or cursor to select a cell

Great customer and technical support

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: My overall experience has been positive. The team at Limelight responds to our inquires timely and are very helpful.

Vorteile:

What stands outs are the custom solutions offered by the technical staff and the ability to re-engineer processes to achieve better results.

Nachteile:

The parts of the software that are excel like should continue to add more excel features. This will help users who are transitioning from excel learn the software faster.

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

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: If every sales team and integration team were like Limelight, the business world would be a better place. All too often in my career, the sales teams justified the reputation of the "Sales" guy, constantly over promising while the platform underdelivered. The disconnect between the sales team and the implementation team was, more often than not, a gap that could rarely be filled. From my first conversation with the reps to the continued working relationship I carry with the customer reps, I have every ounce of confidence that Limelight as a platform, and as a partner, was the right choice for our team!

Vorteile:

Right from the start, the platform was visually familiar and seemingly uncomplicated. 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. Throughout the demos I couldn't help but think "this is too good to be true, nothing is this easy". I was convinced of its benefits from the end user perspective but was concerned about the potential complication of the back end or maintenance of the software. Much to my surprise, Limelight was true to their word, the back end and maintenance has been just as smooth as promised.

Nachteile:

Given that I am still in the construction stage, I am not in the position to comment on this aspect as of yet. 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.

Limelight review

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: I have to say that I was expecting the set up to be a little bit easier. I understand that every company has different needs so the design is done from scratch but I thought a budget is a budget same for all companies. Not being a computer geek, I have learned that all the relations between downloaded data, the input templates and the reports have a complex inter-relations that any little thing can set off wrong. Limelight staff were very quick to understand our environment and with every testing phase corrected any issues that came along. The development stage was very hands on and the limelight staff was always there to make any changes required when expected results were not coming through. 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. They never hesitated in bringing help from other members of their team even if they were not specifically assigned to our project.

Vorteile:

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. Limelight designed a combined integration of input from our accounting data base and manual overrides with recalculations that gives us the most accurate budget all the way down to the individual employee. What would normally take dozens of excel spreadsheets in all done through a few templates and flow trough to our financial statements under budget column

Nachteile:

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 .

Exceptional product

It's opened up a number of possibilities in regards to budgeting better and forecasting on the fly. Limelight has allowed us to hold better control of our expenditures. Love this product!

Vorteile:

I love the ease of use and the availability of reports it's capable of producing. It's helped with our closes and FP&A reporting tremendously!

Nachteile:

There isn't much if anything that I haven't liked with this software. It's super easy to use and allows instant reporting for financial presentations.

We gained faster reporting and analysis

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Limelight is adding tremendous value to our organization. Users find it easier to adopt the system and we now have a centralized place for budgets, expenses, and reports. Information is so much more readily available to our senior management.

Vorteile:

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

Nachteile:

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.

Slice data any way you want to!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Limelight's ease of use to slice and dice financial information is second to none. Whenever there is a financial question, limelight is there to solve it. The continuous support of their staff has also been key to our analytical growth as an organization.

Nachteile:

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

Lots of value add

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: 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. The budgeting and forecasting has never been so easy.
The support from the implementation team and the project managers has always been excellent.

Vorteile:

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

Nachteile:

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

Simple Solution

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Limelight has automated much of our budgeting process and makes it easy to create management and board reports off this information.

Vorteile:

The software is simple to use and resembles Excel in many ways which made it an easy switch for our users.

Nachteile:

The end user does not have much control/ability to customize reports (i.e. they cannot sort based on any column; that is hard coded in the back of the report).

Currently in implementation....

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Experience to-date has been very good from the start of the engagement, through the sales process and contact signing. The Lime light sales team was very easy to work with and were not your typically "sign-a-deal today" type of crew which was refreshing. 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.

Vorteile:

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. While we're not yet complete with the implementation, the process has been very flexible allowing complete customization to our company specific requirements, including reporting We are looking forward to our user acceptance testing and go-live.

Nachteile:

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 Financial Software

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Our company struggled to pull financial information and our monthly reporting package was over 120 tabs in Excel just to make it work. Limelight solved all of those problems and we no longer have to prepare Excel financials, saving us time and money. It also has enabled us to perform analysis immediately and drill-down into the details. We couldn't be happier with the results of Limelight.

Vorteile:

The best part of Limelight is the ease of use. It's very user friendly and easy to pick up. It does not require hundreds of hours of training like other software does. It does exactly what our company needs and the entire Finance department was able grasp the functionality within minutes.

Nachteile:

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

Limelight 3 mths in

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: 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.

Vorteile:

The software offers a lot of flexibility. I can present data in report format which is much more useful than the typical dashboard presentation views in other tools. The ability to use limelight for both data collection applications as well as distribution is great. The natural connectivity to Essbase means I don't have to invest much time in changing my existing reporting platforms to leverage limelight. I have had the tool now for 3 months and have successfully written over 30 reports that will serve 100+ users easily. My management team is excited about what we will be able to do with limelight to minimize data management overhead within the finance organization.

Nachteile:

Graphing needs to be enhanced. Some small tweaks to report development would go along way. Looking forward to seeing version 3.

Great budgeting software

5,0 vor 4 Monaten

Vorteile:

It is so customizable and the implementation team has done a great job in translating our numerous Excel files to a workable and easy method of budgeting templates and input pages. Our employees love that it still looks like Excel, so the transition was smooth.

Nachteile:

It takes a lot of dedication and time to test and fully implement, although I think that would be true for any budgeting software since each company is unique. There are some sorting features that I'd like Limelight to have the capability of doing with the click of a button versus manually (sorting by employee name, account number etc), but they told me they've let their development team know so hopefully it will be a feature in the near future.
