October, 2019

XLReporter Version 14.0 is Available

FRANKLIN, MA: SyTech, Inc. (The Report Company), the market leader in automated reports and dashboards for industry, today announced the release of XLReporter version 14.0. This release expands the capability of XLReporter for Web reporting, 21CFR Part 11 features and ISA18.2 Alarm Management.

This version goes beyond Microsoft Excel to design and produce reports in workbook, PDF and Web formats without needing Excel. A key benefit to users is that they can use their existing workbook skills to solve their reporting needs, saving time and money by avoiding the steep learning curves associated with new software. XLReporter propels user to “Go Beyond Excel” by taking the best of spreadsheet functionality and delivering it to an industrial environment securely and efficiently with around-the clock robustness.

For reports to be effective, they need to be accessible and readable at one glance. With version 14.0, any device with a web browser can view automated reports on the server and produce custom reports on-demand. Reports are responsive to the device size to provide the best view of the report content.

Template development is performed in the Design Studio, the first of its kind in industry. It has the same “look and feel” of Excel and contains features like formulas, statistics, formatting, sorting, filtering, images and charts. It also provides industrial features like connectivity to data sources, analytics, wizards, scheduling, emailing and more.

“Microsoft Excel is indisputably one of the most widely used applications in the world. Our objective was to harness this workbook technology and make it suitable for an industrial environment.” states Peter Kaprielian, CTO of SyTech. “XLReporter makes workbook reporting a reality for industrial applications and takes the user experience to the web“

Security is paramount and XLReporter addresses this with various 21CFR Part 11 features.

The implementation of ISA18.2 Alarm Management is a multi-stage process for managing alarms and is widely accepted as a good engineering practice. One stage of the process is Monitoring and Assessment where alarm data is analyzed for performance. XLReporter provides timely measurements of key performance indicators defined in this stage with ata-glance dashboards that readily identify process equipment that needs operator attention.
