A reporting project starts with a detailed analysis to make sure that our reporting specialists understand your requirements in detail and that we all use the same terminology. Based on the collected information, we will propose a set of custom reports that will turn raw data into information in its final form and structure. This written proposal makes sure that we are all on the same page. The next step is the selection of the platform to create your reports. If possible (and if the platform can handle your requirements without increasing licensing costs), we recommend sticking to the platform that you are working with and that already includes the other built-in reports that you use. Do not devote extra hours to repetitive modifying of your existing reports in MS Excel, instead focus on what matters.
