Highlight is unique in its focus on enabling:
Network and Managed Service Providers and their corporate customers to share applications and network performance intelligence through a single pane of glass
Sales, Service Management and Operations to provide proactive account / service management creating “Trusted Advisor” relationships
Applications and network performance transparency to improve the speed of issue resolution, effective capacity planning and overall service delivery and customer experience
Our fundamental goals
Deliver a true, multi-tenant service, designed to run in the cloud
Enable both technical and non-technical decision makers through a unique interface
Empower providers and their corporate customers to share accurate information
Improve transparency and trust between service providers and corporate customers
Provide a unique graphical single pane of glass showing the performance of applications, network services and WiFi.
To be the best sales and service management tool for Network and Managed Services Providers which enables trusted advisor partnerships with their corporate customers.
Highlight grew out of a consultancy business which advised customers like the Bank of England, Inmarsat and Disney on managing data network performance. Not easy, as it turned out: the available tools were clunky, expensive, and hard to use.
The basic concept for Highlight was formed:
A single pane of glass offering clarity and transparency to everyone
Fast reporting that anyone can understand, whether business or engineering
Run in the cloud so it’s accessible to anyone with a browser
Easy integration with third party software via our API
Installing quickly with no capital cost
Monthly billing support for our partners and their resellers
Quite a challenge, but a very popular concept as it turned out. We grew by selling to enterprises through service providers, and we initially evolved our service to track the products they sold, moving with them from basic internet access, to VPNs and managed networks, to hosted applications and services.
