Deacom Builds Enhanced Reporting Capability Into ERP

Deacom Inc. has built new functionality into its Integrated Accounting and Enterprise Resource Planning software. The addition to version 11.0 provides users in the building component and process-manufacturing industries with enhanced internal and external reporting abilities. Deacom's ERP integrates all areas of a manufacturer's business, including purchasing, sales, production, inventory management, lot control, formulation, engineering links, labor tracking, stores and point of sale, and accounting, into one system. With a new dashboard feature, users can compile an infinite number of reports from across all business processes into a single summary screen, the vendor claimed. Companies that reference the same reports regularly, such as monthly production costs or year-to-date revenue, can create a dashboard that provides at-a-glance views of each report. They can then drill down to individual transactional details. Dashboard users can set a "target value" for each report to measure real-time report data against company goals. The summaries can then be viewed graphically, for a visual representation of company performance. Another reporting feature, cube groups, lets users save reports for export to third-party reporting tools, such as Crystal Reports.
