1. Why do I need SRD?
Simplanova conducted a survey among 22 countries all over the world to find out what problems Microsoft partners face creating reports in Dynamics NAV. 74% of respondents are spending 0.5 – 4 hours to develop 1 list type report and 65% are spending 4 – 16 hours to develop 1 document type report. More than 50% of partners do not have a dedicated developer team for developing NAV reports. Simplanova Report Designer saves up to 92% time for RDLC report building.

SRD can be licensed in two different ways. You can acquire an unlimited yearly licence and create as many reports as you like for as many customers as you need. And the second way of licensing is based on a package of reports, where you would purchase a limited amount of reports, which would then be subtracted from your account for each new report that you develop.

No, you do not need to pay any license fees for the created reports. Created reports are in RDLC format and they are independent from SRD.
