There are a number of features that are desirable in a “report writer” today. At the core, it is important to have great calculation features and flexible formatting in order to produce high-quality financial statements, as well as operational (sub-ledger) reports. There is little doubt that Excel add-ins tend to be much stronger in this area than proprietary reporting tools.
On a higher level, there are other features to consider such as:

  • Automated report distribution to end-users.
  • A web-based front-end option for end users to run their own reports.
  • Mobile access for the busy executive that wants to see fresh financials on the go.
  • Collaborative features so managers can discuss and explain variances and other pertinent observations while analyzing a report.
  • Integration of the report writer beyond the live ERP database, such as to a Budgeting module and data warehouse that also can integrate other data sources.
  • Ad-hoc reporting (when a user needs an answer on the fly and it does not make sense to run or build a formatted report).

We designed the BI360 4.0 reporting module with all of the above criteria in mind. Hopefully, we are pushing the limits of the concept of a “report writer” to the next level so financial professionals and end users can help drive efficiency and analytical capabilities in their organizations.

With the New Year around the corner, it’s the perfect time to announce all the exciting upcoming initiatives we have planned for our amazing partners. We value our partner relationships above all else and we’re more committed than ever to creating a superior partner experience.

Re-launch of Solver University
We have 24 new videos that are now available on Solver’s partner portal. This is a result of recording all the sessions during our Focus 2013 User Conference so BI360 users worldwide can benefit from content covered by Solver Consultants and BI360 product experts. You’ll find videos on topics such as Excel Tips and Tricks, Advanced Reporting, Tips for Budgeting and Forecasting, Product Roadmap, and more.
Additionally, we’ll be publishing all whitepapers associated with Focus 2013 and posting them to the portal this month. Look for a new Solver University web portal platform in Q1 of 2014, which will offer a curriculum-based, consolidated view of all Solver training courses in one place.
These are just a few ways we will continue to provide our partners leading-edge business intelligence software solutions in 2014! More to come!
