Utilit-e Solutions Reporting

In generating reports, PCS implements Crystal Reports, which is the world leader in report generation and data mining tools. Crystal Reports can easily deliver rich, interactive content from a variety of data sources. Output can be viewed on screen, printed to a laser printer, published to the Web, or integrated with other third-party applications. Utilit-e Solutions Reports provides powerful reporting and query capabilities for both novice and experienced users, including the ability to select, analyze, summarize, and present data in almost any way imaginable – without requiring programming knowledge.

Crystal Reports is the primary report generation tool for all PCS applications and modules. Each module includes a series of standard reports. The standard properties of each report can be customized to meet specific business requirements. With the PCS Report Object Interface (ROI), data selection criteria can be changed for the standard reports and save the selections for later access.
