SyTech Releases XLReporter Version 12.6

FRANKLIN, MA: SyTech Inc., the leading provider of automated report generation and data analysis software, the release of XLReporter version 12.6. This version of their award winning product introduces a powerful Design Studio, reporting for Internet of Things (IoT) and a Template Library offering a comprehensive selection of “out-of-box” templates.

Designing report templates in the Design Studio is the first of its kind in industry, offering the “look and feel” of familiar workbook applications. In previous versions, template were designed with XLReporter tools provided in Microsoft Excel. With this version, users have the choice of continuing to use Excel or work in the same familiar environment without needing any additional software.

To accelerate report and dashboard development, features like formulas, analytics, statistics, formatting, sorting, filtering and charts are provided. Whether triggered automatically with the built-in scheduler or on-demand, XLReporter’s powerful reporting engine generates reports as Excel workbooks, web pages and encrypted PDF looking exactly as they were designed, without compromise.

“Without a doubt, the Excel workbook is the most popular platform for reporting. Our challenge was to take this platform into an automated industrial environment where Excel may not be available,” explains Peter Kaprielian, CTO of SyTech. “This version of XLReporter has met that challenge by providing a standalone product that combines the best of workbook functionality with the robustness required by industry.”

Retrieving data from remote sites makes performance monitoring and proactive maintenance possible. SyTech partnered with HMS Ewon, a leader in Internet-based Remote Access products, to produce an interface to the Talk2M Cloud Service. The interface periodically collects remote data and alarms and automatically produces a variety of reports and dashboards such as OEE, utilization and usage.

"The partnership between HMS Ewon and SyTech is a solid endorsement of the value XLReporter brings to IoT applications," says Peter Kaprielian. “With a simple and effective solution, machine builders collect data from their installations for proactive maintenance and research, manufacturers obtain an enterprise view of the productivity of all their sites, facilities monitor key performance indicators of their remote pump stations and energy farms. The possibilities are endless.”

The Template Library offers over 50 templates for Mobile, Alarm KPI, Performance, SPC, Snapshot and Summary reports. With a template “checked out”, the Library Wizard walks through the few steps necessary to modify elements such as title, logo, data and format to produce the report template. The entire reporting solution is ready in minutes not hours.
