Self-Service Reporting Focus
ActiveReports Server is designed from the ground up for effective self-service reporting by business users. Instead of modifying legacy reporting tools originally meant for technical users, all aspects of ActiveReports Server are designed with a clear focus on the business user’s ad hoc reporting requirements.
For example, logical data models eliminate the need for technical knowledge about the underlying database. The Web-based ad hoc report designer is inherently data-aware with productivity enhancing features such as date-time components that auto-generate user-friendly formats from the raw date-time data.
100% Web-Based Reporting
Instead of organically evolving over time as Windows and Web architectures that require a complex mix of deployment strategies, ActiveReports Server is architected to be a 100% Web-based, self-service reporting solution that enables rich, ad hoc reporting for everyone right inside the Web browser.
As a result, ActiveReports Server is easy to deploy to a large number of business users and takes far less effort and time to administer and maintain. It is fully compatible with Web-based SaaS and on-premise software applications.
Intuitive Report Designer
Unlike traditional Web-based reporting tools, ActiveReports Server combines the broad reach of the Web browser with a rich, desktop-like user experience with drag and drop features, a free-form ad hoc report designer, instant design previews, and a rich collection of report themes and styles to choose from.
The feature-rich self-service reporting interface accelerates user adoption, reduces training costs and empowers business users to consistently create great looking ad hoc reports with less effort. They can even schedule their reports for delivery to intended recipients without depending on IT.
ActiveReports Server provides high-end self-service reporting features for everyone without charging exorbitant, unreasonable prices. For starters, it features perpetual server-based licensing with no run-time royalties and zero per-user fees.
In addition, managed agents (up to 5) can be purchased and deployed with your reporting server license so that you can scale up without the need to acquire a new server license. With respect to internal testing and development needs, we are happy to give you the licenses you need without charging endless fees.
Designed for the Future - Self-Service Business Intelligence
The original ActiveReports line of products for .NET developers kick-started the .NET reporting tools industry over two decades ago and today has successfully expanded to include analytics and business intelligence tools used by tens of thousands of developers worldwide.
ActiveReports Server follows a similar forward-looking design philosophy so that it not only meets today’s ad hoc reporting needs, but is well positioned to provide the next level of self-service business intelligence features in the months and years to come.
