What Backstop Solutions' clients say

“We used to have to access three, four, or even five different systems to piece together an answer that we needed. Many times, our team members could not even access those systems directly and therefore had to rely on back office personnel to gather the necessary data. Now, our investment team members can go to one system and easily and instantly get the information they need to do their work.”
Hillman Family Office

Onboarding

Timelines for implementing clients can vary based on client availability and goals with the platform.
From the very first training engagement within the first two weeks of kicking off the project, our clients would have full access to their Backstop environment.
Timelines are agreed upon during the kick off engagement but are staggered through milestones.
The CRM phase can be completed within 2 weeks, Fund Research and Due Diligence within a month and the Portfolio setup and varying levels of module and feature implementation range about a month on based on size, history, client resources and availability of data.

Customisation

Configuration can be performed by the users themselves and only requires minimal (i.e. non-technical) training.

Bespoke development

When the use case has broader application across our client base.
We have performed bespoke development in the past when it has met the standard of having application to multiple clients.
