SAP Crystal Reports

Overall Satisfaction with SAP Crystal

Crystal Reports is used for creating reports and graphs working synchronously as a team. I and my team analyse and fetch data from various clients for which we have setup and installed networks for as a part of projects. After that we send all the data to technical team and data analyst to log it into crystal reports. We then analyse and create reports in Crystal reports. It is really helpful if we want to manage a lot of data. It makes easy for us to give presentation on projects.
  • Merge and log data very easily.
  • User interface is good.
  • Different types of fonts and graphs and charts to analyse data easily.
  • Hard to learn. It took a lot of time to learn this software.
  • Database used as a source is quite difficult. We always have to contact technical team for that.
  • It really helped although little but yes while giving presentation to our clients. and those presentations indirectly enhanced our organization business.
Well I am giving 7 rating as I never understood the database connectivity with Crystal reports. I have to contact technical team for support.
Crystal reports are great for creating reports and analyse data but it is quite difficult to learn so gave rating 8.
This is a great feature of this product. We can share reports with anyone very easily and even modify them.
Crystal reports is useful in case we want to import data from data base . We can write queries in it but Google Charts require to be implemented in our application using code so crystal reports is better than Google Charts.
Well these are quite useful for technical people who also know how to import data directly from database, and as their mind is technical so it will be also easy to understand it.
