What Our Clients Say About Us
Backstop is very customizable…the client/marketing team has been able to build out our instance and do a lot with it. The support team is very responsive. The report builder has been extremely useful for our client team, and the ETK function even more so.
I work in Backstop 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. It is our document database and main data depository. It provides us with the tools we use on a daily basis to both analyze and house our data and all the documents that we receive. Besides ease of use, ease of reporting, and ease of viewing, the Backstop Support people are top of class.”
Backstop has been a great solution for our firm and working with Backstop has been a great experience since the very beginning.
Backstop is the most flexible and intuitive
CRM system I’ve used.
By using Backstop, our managers can easily access financial information and analysis anytime when making investment decisions.
It is an excellent product, allowing us to effectively “mirror” our Trustee record keeping; which provides us the ability to reconcile and identify any potential errors and strengthens our level of assurance
Backstop allows us to maintain the organization’s memory. Turnover is an unavoidable truth in any institution. As people go, they take with them crucial knowledge. Backstop is how we can mitigate this…the system helps to keep track of all the conversations we have and all the people we have them with.
I have used several other systems in my days and this one is by far the best, most tailored to the asset management industry and with the most user-friendly features.
