Our focus

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

Single pane of glass concept Highlight

Provide a unique graphical single pane of glass showing the performance of applications, network services and WiFi.

Our Vision

To be the best sales and service management tool for Network and Managed Services Providers which enables trusted advisor partnerships with their corporate customers.

Our History

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.
