XL Reporter was a popular Excel-based report writer for SAP Business One users. When SAP acquired Business Objects, they replaced the XL Reporter solution with Crystal Reports, leaving customers everywhere looking for a new Excel-based report writer that works the same way as XL Reporter did. Namely, a solution that integrates directly to GL and sub-ledgers in SAP Business One so that business professionals can report real-time results from SAP and into Excel.
BI360 is not only such a report writer, but is it also more dynamic and user-friendly than XL Reporter was. And, there’s even a process that allows you to build BI360 reports on top of the old XL Reporter structure. BI360 also offers a full BI suite so customers can also use it for Budgeting, Consolidations, Dashboards, Data Warehousing and Collaboration.
Here are some more features of BI360 Reporting:
– Supports Microsoft Excel 2007 and newer versions of Excel
