Epicor® Crystal Reports Development Training and Consulting

Accurate reports that can be customized to your needs are an essential part of budgeting, planning, regulatory compliance and a number of other business processes. One of the biggest benefits of an enterprise resource planning platform such as Epicor® is its robust data gathering capabilities. However, as many small businesses know, getting the platform to work with reporting software such as Crystal Reports can be a challenge.

Practical Technology Solutions, LLC (PTS) is an independent Epicor® consultant that can help you use Crystal Reports to your advantage. We can help you modify and customize reports so you can drill down on the information you need to make smarter decisions.

Epicor® and Crystal Reports

Crystal Reports has the ability to pull data from multiple sources to create cohesive, accurate reports. Getting it to work seamlessly with Epicor® often requires modifying an existing template or creating a new business activity query (BAQ) — both processes which can be time consuming, or which may involve extensive trial and error that many small businesses don’t have the resources for.

That’s where PTS comes in. We have extensive experience generating Crystal Reports with Epicor® and have a large archive of templates that can be modified to meet your needs. Some of the thousands of custom Epicor® reports we’ve created in the past have included:

  • Shipping reports that let you know who bought what, where it was sent and how it got there in a given week, month, quarter or other specified period of time
  • Detailed work-in-progress and jobs-in-progress reports that clearly show what you have ongoing, what’s overdue and which team members are available to take on additional work, among other things
  • Supplier delivery performance reports that identify which of your partners has been most effective at meeting their promises, and which have a history of unreliability
  • Part lead time reports, which make planning easier by showing you what’s in stock and what needs to be sent away for

…and more.

How PTS Can Help

Together, Epicor® and Crystal Reports can be used to provide vital business intelligence for organizations in the manufacturing, warehousing and automotive industries, among others. PTS can provide a number of services that help you maximize the usefulness of these two platforms:

  • Report generation and customization: We have generated thousands of Crystal Reports with both Epicor® 9 and Epicor® 10. If we don’t already have a template that can be easily modified to meet your requirements, we can quickly develop something that’s perfect for your business.
