09 Jul Benefits of Reporting Tools
The reporting tools can be used by all types of companies. The idea of a reporting systems is to provide information and analysis with the necessary detail for each type of user.
With reporting you can extract and present data in tables, graphs, charts and other visualizations so that users can find useful information. You can also create ideal reports to print. A reporting tool is usually an application that is integrated with an ERP business software suite such as Dynamics 365 Business Central.
Reports can vary in their interactivity, there are static reports where users can only observe them, and interactive reports that allow you to change what you want to see in the report through various visualization elements.
Through interactive reports you can drill down on several levels of data with the click of a button. Also browse, sort, filter and view the data for your specific needs.
