Using Microsoft SQL Reporting Services (SSRS)
Datex FootPrint WMS provides even non-technical users with the ability to create customized reports on the fly without costly professional technical assistance. The Datex warehouse management system (WMS) equips your business with the flexibility needed to make immediate changes so that your users will always have access to critical information on demand.
Your Reports, Think Drag and Drop
Reporting gives your company a way of gathering information about your business and warehouse operations so that you can plan, make and support business decisions. Datex FootPrint WMS uses Microsoft SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) Builder, a server based report generation system to create a variety of interactive and printed reports via a web interface. Users can view, subscribe to and manage reports including tabular, graphical interactive or free form and include rich data visualization including charts and maps. Reports can be exported to other applications and produced in a variety of formats.
Datex has done extensive work on the Microsoft SQL Reporting Services (SSRS) reporting model and enabled the set up and smooth flow of data so that now even non-technical users can build their own reports without any technical assistance. Users simply select the fields they want then drag and drop the fields into place in the Report Builder. Users can edit, create and interact with information without relying on any technical staff resources or the Datex team to create customized reports. This not only saves money from costly professional fees and IT resources but also allows your team to have faster delivery of information to your business, enabling quick critical decision making.
