Web Reporting

In today’s world, where data is the key to success, more and more companies are wondering how to best utilize it. One of the crucial elements is reporting, which allows for data analysis and making business decisions based on it.

In this article, we will discuss why you might want to consider Web Reporting using REACT/JS/jQuery technologies and in which cases it might be the best solution.

What is web reporting?

Web reporting is the process of creating, sharing, and managing reports online. These reports can be accessed via a web browser, making them easily accessible from anywhere in the world. Technologies such as REACT, JS, and jQuery allow for the creation of interactive and visually appealing reports that can be easily tailored to individual user needs.

  • Integration: Web reporting allows for easy integration with other systems, such as ERP or CRM systems.
