Real-time reporting is another key feature in Aralco Retail Systems, and it comes with the following comprehensive report formats for you to choose from to meet your precise reporting requirements:
TABULAR VS MATRIX REPORT FORMAT
Tabular Report is the most basic type of report you can build and the report output is organized with a single column header with multirow of data.
Matrix Report is very similar to a table, but it is configured to show data grouped by columns and rows, with aggregate data at the intersections. Some of the data you might expect to see in a row can actually become a column header. This format is similar to a crosstab or pivot table in a spreadsheet.
SUMMARY REPORT FORMAT
Summary Report is similar to Tabular Reports and you can configure these reports to group by rows of data but with the same column header - below is an example with images included in the report.
CHART REPORT FORMAT
Chart Report shows data in the form of areas, bars, columns, lines, and other shapes.
REPORTING INTERFACE TO MICROSOFT OUTLOOK, EXCEL, WORD, PDF :
All Aralco reports are prepared as HTML (or ASCII) files and readily convertible with a click of a button to Microsoft (MS) Excel, MS Word or PDF format, wherein any MS documents, you can make a modification such as your own presentation or applications of formulas and other calculations.
For mass price updates or markdowns, Aralco exports the selected product range (by Supplier, Department, Group etc.) into Excel where you can easily manipulate the data at your convenience, then simply re-import your changes back into Aralco with a simple click. The product price information residing on the Aralco system will then be replaced by your Excel's entries.
