Formed in 2010 and based in Wellington, Spotlight Reporting is a Kiwi software business with 33 staff in NZ, the US, UK and Australia.

They provide business intelligence reporting tools to an array of accountants, advisors and business owners.

Spotlight Reporting’s business intelligence tools are designed to provide accountants, business owners, franchises and not for profits with a range of reporting options, and it’s just taken home one of Xero Accountings biggest awards.

Xerocon South 2016 saw the company announced as Xero’s App Partner of the year, which CEO Richard Francis says is a wonderful endorsement.

“Particularly as the Xero App community is now truly global, spanning a huge range of industries and vendors,” he says.

“Following on from our 2015 Award, this is a testimony to the great work of our team and the huge support from our customers and Xero too.”

Spotlight Reporting’s award-winning tools import data from Xero, QuickBooks and other leading software products, creating insightful reports, forecasts and dashboards. Was also recognised in the 2015 Deloitte Tech 500 and Fast 50 Rising Star awards, and is also an App Partner of Intuit.

The company says it currently has hundreds of accounting and advisory practices including the ‘Big 4’ and the majority of the Top Xero Platinum and Gold Partner firms in New Zealand, Australia, UK, US and Asia.

Just last month, the award winning company also announced a successful $5 million capital raise.
