The Enapps ERP system is implemented with a fully integrated Business Intelligence solution. The Enapps reporting software solution takes the ERP system to the next level, since it can cater for a completely flexible reporting requirement. Documents can be printed in PDF, Excel, or Word. A report can be anything from an Invoice or Quotation, to a complex Bill of Material cost roll-up. Clients using the Enapps ERP system can be trained on our report designer, which enables you to write your own reports on an on-going basis as departments and management request them. A significant portion in harnessing the full power of an ERP system is utilisation of the reporting software, with the report designer integration, any reporting requirement can be delivered.
Benefits of our reporting software:
Dynamic or ‘on-screen’ reports: These types of reports are quickly and easily created and manipulated in real-time with just a few mouse clicks, or can be added to a Dashboard for immediate viewing at any time.
Printed Reports: These report types are initially identified from the reports which are being used pre-ERP implementation. They are then usually copied as part of the implementation.
The most up-to-date data: Our reporting software only ever uses the most up-to-date data, since all data is read directly from the single database structure held within the ERP system.
A single version of truth – Since everything is stored within a single database environment, ‘multiple versions of the truth’ are eliminated overnight and this ensures current data within all reports from the time of creation.
Easy construction – You will find yourself creating meaningful custom on-screen reports in just a couple minutes. Specific company data analysis which eluded you before will become commonplace.
Uncomplicated access – All reports are easily accessible through all devices, including mobile and tablets, therefore you can easily reach them from any place and at any time.
The standard ERP interface also provides a rich set of tools that enable you to query records in the system. In traditional ERP software, getting a list of sales orders or invoices is considered a report. In the Enapps ERP system finding this information does not require a report, since it is available directly within the system. The operator can quickly search and narrow down a large data set by utilising any number or combination of the ‘group by’ criteria by using the ‘Custom Group’ function. This allows the operator to pivot the data and deliver meaningful information with just a few mouse clicks. If required, the results can then easily be graphed with the click of a button.

For some reporting software requirements, we can make use of Excel pivot functionality and draw ERP data directly from the database into a spreadsheet. The data is loaded in real time and easily refreshed by a single click of a button. This option provides an additional way to query your ERP data in a flexible and dynamic manner using familiar software and features. Typical ODBC report examples are general management, budget vs. actuals, stock, purchase analysis & sales analysis.
Management reporting consists of generating the data and reports required for the key managers and decision makers to run their company and these are usually run on a monthly basis. The key foundation of management reporting is the financial information of the company, such as profit and loss (PNL) and the different type of forecasting models required.
The main purpose of management reporting differs slightly from company to company, but generally it is to provide a complete insight with regards to a company’s current position within its marketplace. Strategic company decisions are made using these reports, so only accurate data should ever be used. This data is also often used as the main criteria for measuring management and employee performance and hence their remuneration.
Since every company’s management accounts differ slightly, the Enapps Management Account Report has minor customization’s added to take account of this and the resulting reports include data both from the ERP and any external data which has potential implications on the company performance. The result is a simple to use, multi-dimensional tool in terms of both creation and usage, which provides the complete overview of the company’s current position within the marketplace. Management reports are made up of both ODBC (ERP) and external data sources and delivered via Excel.
Any system report can be displayed onscreen, saved as a file in various formats and/or hardcopy printed. The Enapps ERP reporting software also supports the direct printing, where once you allocate a default printer reports can be sent directly to it without being displayed onscreen.
We have experience in delivering specialist printing requirements for our clients, such as a Zebra printing integration which has a specific markup language (ZPL) for specialised label and barcode printing devices.
We have the ability to take on any customised printing task.
