Frequently, your financial information is in a system like QuickBooks, and your operations are run by another system. You'd like to compute a statistic such as "Production Employee Cost per Machine Hours" – so you look up the cost in QuickBooks, find the machine hours from the production report, throw them into Excel, and do the calculation. Easy enough – until you want to do this routinely, or expand the number of statistics. Cross-System Report Development addresses this challenge.
Know the Signs
"I really need to develop a report pulling information from both Quickbooks and our shop floor system."
"We have employee time in our time-tracking system and project-specific purchases in QuickBooks – we need to combine information from both systems for reporting."
The Benefits of a Report Development Project

Faster Resolutions – Faster identification and resolution of issues.
