- Crystal Reports is very easy for any user to use.

- It would be helpful if Crystal Reports could output text flowing up instead of down.
- It has had a positive impact on our ROI, because we purchased the software over 10 years ago, and are still able to use it. There have not been any additional purchases that needed to be made to allow the product to be used.
