Most of us in the Lawson community know that ‘as of date’ reporting for Lawson HR is constantly requested by senior management and difficult to produce. There is no simple way using Crystal Reports or any other reporting tool to create reports that reflect the value of a piece of data at a given point in time, not its current value. For example, a report listing employees and their employee status as of a given date, or turnover and head count trending by month, quarter and year. With Dashboard Gear’s cost effective solution, HR Management Dashboards with drill down capabilities are relatively easy to create.

Much of the most useful information such as change history and employee demographical information is either stored in large binary fields that cannot be easily extrapolated by standard reporting methods. Or, if you are just trying to understand the relationship between BusinessClasses and the database tables, the limited documentation and obscurity of relationships can lead to very extended development timelines for your reports.

Build your audit report in minutes instead of weeks and spend your time making it look beautiful or adding more robust features like charting or just take the time you saved and go home early!
