Custom SQL Reporting Services Solutions
PCA is expert with designing and developing custom SQL Server Reporting Services solutions
— to deliver fast, secure, interactive reports connected to your SQL Server database.
SQL Reporting Services provide a simple and cost-effective
way to select and format data from your SQL database, and deliver employee- and customer-facing reports
anywhere an Internet connection is available.
Flexible Report Delivery — Application, Web browser, Email
Access to SQL Reports can be enabled through any interface with Internet access: within your application,
automatically to users' email (via SMTP or MS Outlook Exchange Server) or generated on-demand through a simple web browser interface.
Reporting controls e.g. date and field filters, etc. can be defined to enable interative reporting capabilities.
Report Design — from simple to complex
Reports can range from simple, static ("canned") reports with tabular information, to complex
cross-tabular reports with charts and graphics. Interactive charts with drill-down
capabilities are also possible.
We frequently design "ad hoc" reporting interfaces
that allow users to select from a number of fields and filters to generate a custom set of information.
This approach is not only easier to use, but can substantially reduce the
number of reports that you need (and the cost!).
Export to PDF, CSV, MS Excel and Word
The additional benefit of Microsoft SQL
Reporting Services is one-click export of report data to common desktop file formats
including Word, PDF, Excel and CSV — making it simple and easy for users to repurpose
report data for individual needs.
The ability to export report data directly to an MS Excel spreadsheet provides users with the power and familiarity they need
to format and analyze very specific business needs, which is oftentimes more effective than very expensive reporting solutions.
