You Don’t Need to be in IT – Reports Made Simple

Getting the information you need to do your job can be nearly impossible when a technical degree is required just to create a simple report.  We've experienced this ourselves – with accounting systems, CRMs, and other solutions we use in-house.  It's a hassle, and creates all sorts of delays in day to day business. Creating a simple report using Excel can be hard enough – especially when you have to pull data from numerous sources.  I can't count the number of times I alone have struggled, much less the other managers who, as a group, spend hours consolidating information between various systems.  It's painful and largely unnecessary.  After all, aren't these software solutions supposed to simplify our operations?   So why are we spending so much time creating reports in Excel, or worse – waiting for our busy IT group to write reports for us? We've tried to avoid this trap with Web TimeSheet by keeping the reports as effortless as possible.  The numerous default reports contain exactly the data you need, without any extra steps required – they're based on the most common requests from our customers (and from us – after all, we use Web TimeSheet, too).   If you need to tweak a report, the point-and-click interface makes it really easy to make changes – whether that means selecting new report fields, subtotaling your data differently, sorting the report columns, or even doing custom calculations.  And if you want to create a report from the ground up, it's a simple process that takes only a few minutes – no tech degree required.
