Just like any other implementation: When designing the differing reports, get end users' input, make sure to design the reports so that they display the information that the company requires, in the best and clearest way possible.

Test, test, test, revise when needed, and, particularly, do sufficient training so users are comfortable using Crystal Reports!

ECC customers should look at using SAP ALV as a data source; this is what we did to implement our financial statements. It is easy to use. Also make your default variants layout to Crystal - easy to use, and will be an easy interface for your end users. I highly recommend Crystal Reports for this.
