Our Crystal Reports Programmer's Development Process

Have you wondered how our Crystal Reports programmers work through a typical Crystal Reports development project for you?  What are the various steps and what can you expect during development?  

Project Scope and Discovery

Crystal Reports Programmer Process Step 1  

The process begins with a discussion of your specific report needs. During that discussion our Crystal Reports programmers will gather your report requirements, technical information about your data sources, details on how these reports are going to be delivered to end-users, and the best method to obtain access to your data sources. (VPN, terminal services, sample database, etc)

 

Quote or Estimate

Crystal Reports Programmer Process Step 2   Depending on the application being reported from, the database and even the type of report, we will have one or more of our Crystal Reports developers review the report and come up with an estimate of the amount of time it will take us to complete.  From that estimate, we will provide you with an estimate of the lead time & cost required to complete your Crystal Report(s).

 

 

Development / Programming Your Crystal Reports

Crystal Reports Programmer Process Step 3   Once we have your approval to begin work, your Crystal Reports project will be added to our development queue. We can either connect remotely to your database or we can utilize a sample database at our office to develop your reports.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us for an update on your project.

 

 

Testing Your Reports

Crystal Reports Programmer Process Step 4   At the end of development, our Crystal Reports programmers and consultants will send you the completed Crystal Reports RPT file. While we have tested the reports internally, we still ask you to verify the validity of the data returned in the Crystal Report by running it against your production data. 

 

 

Deploying Your Reports

Crystal Reports Programmer Process Step 5   When the reports are complete, then we can help with deploying your Crystal Reports with Logicity, our Crystal Reports® viewer software.  Reports can also be scheduled to run automatically and emailed to users.  Administrators can also lock down access to reports, encrypt reports, log user activity and even integrate with other applications.

Crystal Reports Development - FAQ

General Reporting Questions

SaberLogic Crystal Reporting Services

  1. How do you estimate the cost for a typical report?
  2. What is the lead time for a typical report?

What is "Reporting"?

We all use reports, probably without thinking much about them. All businesses have some sort of central computer system that they are channeling all of their daily data and transactions into. These systems promise to generate valuable information about your business from that data in the form of reports. These may be printed or in electronic form, but they are efforts of the system to analyze your data and report it back to you in a logical format.


What makes SaberLogic's custom reports better than the stock reports included with my ERP or data system?

Software companies do their best to create stock reports that fit all of their customers needs. However every business is different, with varying information requirements. Have you ever found yourself going through a stock report and adding handwritten notes and changes because the data was only "close" to what you needed? This can be very costly if the report is one that you use on a daily or weekly basis. Most companies find it more cost effective to have the report written correctly the first time than to pay someone to recalculate it by hand every time they use it.


Why would I want SaberLogic to help me with my reporting needs?

We are certainly not the only ones who can help you to alter or develop a custom report. In fact, some people can learn the basics of report writing in a matter or hours. However, our core skills lie in working with companies to determine exactly what information you need and then to create reports that deliver it to you in a clean, concise and complete format. We have extensive experience working with high-end ERPs, we have a deep understanding of the way data is formatted within them and a history of creating highly developed functionality that you can take advantage of. We can create your ideal report faster so that you can immediately be making profitable decisions from your data.


What tools does SaberLogic use when developing custom reports?

Our ultimate goal is to deliver the best reporting solution, period. Just as a master carpenter uses multiple tools to do the job right, we have the ability to use a wide variety of reporting tools in order to find the perfect fit for you.

We use the Crystal Decisions suite of products, including Crystal Reports®, SQL Designer, and Crystal Enterprise. We go even further by automating the delivery of your new reports with a tool we've developed called RPT Scheduler. Using this tool we can automate the delivery of your reports to printers or e-mail recipients based on a fixed schedule or "triggers" from your ERP. For example, we could set up a report to automatically e-mail a salesperson the instant their sales performance drops below set goals. Or, we could set up reports to automatically e-mail your customers that have current jobs in production with their current status. The possibilities are truly endless.

Sometimes the best fit is to simply use the reporting tools native to your ERP. We use Report Builder,R & R Report Writer, and Centura to modify or create reports. Many times the best report may not even be on paper. We can enable you to view live data and reports instantly in a web environment. We can also extend a report's functionality by giving you the ability to interact and input data into your digital reports.


I am already overloaded with information. Why would I want to add even more?

We are all experiencing information overload. More often than not however, the information we are facing is not exactly what we need. SaberLogic can help you filter through the overload and reduce it down to the information you will really use. You will find that when you have the exact information you need in your hands, it empowers you to make profitable business decisions. So, is it really a matter of having too much information or simply a matter of not enough perfect information?
 
 

How do you estimate the cost for a typical report?

When you present us with a new report, we will review the specification and try to put it into a "bucket" of hours required. We can usually tell you quickly if a report will take between 2 to 4 hours, 4 to 8 hours, or 8 to 16 hours. If a report requires more than 16 hours we will provide you with a customized estimate. Simply multiply the total hours by the quoted hourly rate.
 
 

What is the lead time for a typical report?

The lead time for a report will vary on the complexity of the report and our current workload. Typically lead times are between 1 and 2 weeks. We will provide you with an estimated lead time at the time we estimate the project.
