“Creating NAV reports in RTC is more time consuming and complicated than creating them in the “Classic” environment”,- Mark Keener The NBN Group, LLC consultant, implementer and developer.
 

Challenge: Save Time in Creating NAV Reports in RTC


 

“Creating reports in the RTC has presented a challenge.  It’s much more time consuming and complicated than creating them in the “Classic” environment.  If you are developing reports based on custom tables in a client database, you cannot take a standard NAV report and modify it.  You must create it from scratch in the RDLC or use an alternative method such as exporting the data to Excel or use some other reporting tool.  I was looking for something that could speed up the process to create reports that looked like standard NAV reports”, – Mark Keener The NBN Group, LLC consultant, implementer and developer. 
 

Solution:  Reduce Time, Spending on creating NAV RDLC Reports


 

Simplanova customer , The NBN Group, LLC, was aware of a couple of tool  options in the market, which helps developers to create NAV reports, but they required that the client purchase a license in order to use those solutions. It was not what the customer was looking for. A developer at The NBN Group, LLC became aware of the Simplanova Report Wizard when he received an email from the Simplanova sales team.  SRW was what he was looking for.

“I liked that SRW doesn’t require the client to purchase anything additional. Once the reports are created, they can be modified by the client using the standard RDLC tools or they can be modified by the consultant using the Simplanova Report Wizard.  This is a great option for a Solution Center to create reports for clients that only need a handful of custom reports and who don’t need to purchase a license for an extra report writer“, – Mark Keener The NBN Group, LLC consultant, implementer and developer.
 

Results: Using Simplanova Report Wizard for Creating NAV RDLC Reports THE NBC GROUP LLC  Saved Time and Met the  Project Deadlines


 

The main advantage is that I use Simplanova Report Wizard to create simple or complex reports for clients in about the same amount of time that it took me to create them using the Classic report designer.  I have created “document” type reports as well as regular “list” reports using the SRW.  In addition, I have been able to create conditional printing to accommodate Detail/Summary reports.  I have even been able to add features like “green bar rows” to make landscape reports with a lot of data easier to read”, – Mark Keener The NBN Group, LLC consultant, implementer and developer. 

Using Simplanova Report Wizard  clients are able to create reports saving up to 92% of the time that it would take to do a comparable report using the RDLC tools in NAV.

SRW

Mark Keener would recommend Simplanova Report Wizard to other Microsoft Dynamics partners. “The SRW allows you to create NAV reports with a fairly short learning curve.  Taking advantage of Simplanova’s “Try Before You Buy” trial license allowed me to create some reports for a client that I was upgrading from NAV 2.5″,- Mark Keener The NBN Group, LLC consultant, implementer and developer.
