Reporting Xpress's Reporting as a Service (RaaS) platform enables your organization to execute its mission better. Better reporting leads to better decision-making and more efficient and effective execution. Clear and concise reporting is the simplest way to convey information to decision-makers who may not be expert users of your core systems.
A couple of seasoned non-profit executives recognized a need to find a more efficient way to manage reporting across the multiple systems their organization relied on. They saw team members spending way too much time creating and massaging reports in Excel, maintaining email distribution lists for report distribution, and distributing reports that were not always as functional as they thought they should be. And even with all that work, people throughout the organization wanted information more frequently, without having to learn several new software applications.
Reporting Xpress was conceived to solve these problems. In the process, we solved a few others.
Reporting Xpress values giving anyone who runs and distributes routine reporting, back their time to spend on more strategic efforts. We start there. However, we also have three fundamental mantras that we believe make implementing a RAAS system a no-brainer:
If you are going to automate reports, we might as well make them better. Our professional report designers will help you convey your information as effectively as possible.
If you know what you want and can draw it on a piece of paper, we can probably give it to you. It doesn't matter if the data is coming from one or multiple systems.
Automated reporting means you can run reports more frequently. Complex reports that you can only produce manually on a monthly basis can be automated to run weekly or daily.
Often, high-value personnel end up exporting data and building data models to generate reports in Excel that look something like what they desire. They usually must repeat this process during every reporting cycle. This process is a significant waste of valuable resources. Reporting Xpress's Reporting as a Service platform extracts data from your
cloud-based systems via API, models that data in a temporary cloud-based JSON data warehouse that gets deleted immediately after processing, and automatically generates the reports of your dreams. There is some upfront work to design and configure the reports to your specifications, but we do that for you as part of the service.
Security should not be hard. Reporting Xpress leverages Federated Security, the modern way to secure cloud-based applications. If you have a security team, just ask them. They will appreciate it. The benefits include:
A Reporting as a Service solution should make it easier for people to get and consume reports. So, we have wrapped a secure, straightforward, intuitive report distribution system around all the complex technology required to build and execute your custom reports. We are also adding "smart" technology to reports such as alerts that could tell automatically tell you when there is a new version ready or possibly when data in the report has changed. PaperSave User? We are integrated with PaperSave so users can see source documents from this system alongside their reports.
Tableau? Power BI? We can integrate with these visualization tools to expose your dashboards through our system alongside your reports. Most people initially consider a Reporting as a Service system to generate PDF or Excel-based reports intended to be consumed by humans. However, the same automation can generate custom files in any format (CSV, XML, SQL, etc.) for import into other systems, saving more valuable time.
