Pathlight helps frontline employees take control of their performance so they can do their best work. Pathlight brings together key performance data, so employees always know how they are tracking to their goals and can see everything in one place. Frontline employees also receive guidance directly from their manager in Pathlight, so that they have the coaching, positive feedback, and 1:1 notes to stay on track.

Pathlight syncs data from a variety of data sources, like Salesforce, Zendesk, Outreach, internal data warehouses, and more. Your team could be syncing from all of these sources or just one.

The Pathlight app consists of a Metrics, Inbox, People and Settings tab; each tab focuses on a different aspect of your team.
