Overall Satisfaction with SAP Crystal Reports
We use Infor VISUAL Enterprise software. It has a fairly limited report writer. Crystal Reports allows us to retrieve any information we need easily and effectively. Due to the cost of Crystal Reports, we have 4 stations where reports can be created. Crystal Reports allows us to use Visual in a slightly different way than it was designed. We can focus on teams of people rather than machines.
- No limit on what data can be retrieved.
- Easy to create new reports from an old report with different focus.
- Wonderfully robust sorting capabilities.
- If a reports has a problem the whole program shuts down. This is a pain if you have several reports queued up.
- Maybe I'm missing something but it's a hassle to create a report on one computer and move it to another without requiring a password on the new machine.
- I would like a longer list of resent reports you can open.
No contest - Crystal Reports is head over heels better in every possible way.
