Business Templates

Crown has created a comprehensive list of business reporting templates. These templates contain all the necessary low level database “joins” which allow the user to focus on the creation of business reports and requirements rather than needing to look at or more importantly, understand the underlying database structure.

Summary Views

This feature is particularly useful as it allows users access to a pre-defined series of summary reports that are created specifically and based on their preferences or permissions, thereby effectively removing a whole layer of report building. These reports are then further able to be customised, refined and manipulated quickly and easily by double clicking and selecting other pre-configured fields/criteria contained in the report template
