The Sage Intelligence Reporting add-on for Sage 50c empowers you to quickly and easily obtain the information required for improved operations and reporting across your entire business. Sage Intelligence gives you the freedom to tweak your reports or create new reports from scratch to suit your business needs.
Based on the familiar Microsoft Excel ® application, the Business Intelligence module lets you effortlessly create reports and analyze data, improving your visibility into your organization. Developed and priced for anyone to use, Intelligence Reporting yields powerful results that can help you:
Simply run one of the out-of-the-box reports and start slicing and dicing information. If needed, customization and personalization of a template is a simple and straightforward process that can be handled by any user with the proper security access.
Business Intelligence reduces manual report preparation, repetitive data extracts, and complex back-end data joins to provide you with up-to-date, accurate, and presentation-quality reports for informed decision-making.
Spend more time focusing on strategic analysis and interpretation and less time pulling the data together from static reports.
This is a very strong SQL-based report writer which has MS Excel as its front-end display. It is capable of producing virtually ANY report from your Sage dataset.
The 2 best things about SIR is that it is embedded inside your Sage Software. Also it automatically displays the data in MS Excel which gives you the flexibility to further manipulate the data with skills you already possess.
I wish it were available for QuickBooks too, but Sage currently has no plans to expand into that market.
