Ease of Reporting
Allows the creation of ad-hoc reports using a friendly user console. Reports support common reporting features such as sorting, grouping, aggregation, and summaries. Report columns can easily be arranged.
Reports can be exported to popular output options such as Excel and PDF.
Complex filtering can be easily defined to produce the desired subset of data. Prompts for filtering values can be easily created to allow a single report to be used for multiple scenarios.
Reports can be scheduled to execute at user-defined times and intervals.
Maintain Data Currency
Utilize Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) to transform OLTP data on a regular basis to maintain currency.
Complex Analyses / Charting
Allows the creation of more complex analyses that can facilitate comparison of data over specified time periods. Reports can be easily converted from tabular format to a variety of pre-configured charting options.
Users can define their own measures and facts such as trends, percent rankings, and user-defined calculations.
More technical users can use the report designer tool to create highly complex reports using advanced business rules and formatting options. Report Designer can be used to modify and supplement the out-of-the-box base reports per company specifications. Reports created or modified can be published to the user console for general usage.
