standard reports


There are currently 120 standard reports included with Communiqué.  Within one year from the official release date of Communiqué, we plan to add between 40 to 80 new standard reports (with feedback from our user community of course).  Software Assurance customers will get these free as they are made available through our regular release cycle.  Those customers without Software Assurance will need to purchase the upgrade in order to get the additional standard reports.

The standard reports are organize into 12 categories to better help you find relevant reports.  For example:  Customer related reports can be found in the Customers section, Inventory related reports will be found in the Inventory section, etc.  The Custom Reports section is used exclusively for custom reports, and can contain user defined reports which may normally be found in other sections.  To view sample reports from Communiqué click here...


The standard reports are organized in the following sections:




The Customer section contain customer specific reports.


The Data section are about the quality and status of your data.  You will find reports like Duplicate Customers, Customers Missing Last Name, SKU's Missing Location, Orphaned Orders - Missing Customers, etc.  Running these reports will help you identify problems with your data so you can fix it as necessary.  Bad or faulty data will skew your reports and can give you the wrong impression about your business.


The Geos section are about sales and other data related to geographic areas like country, state, province, etc.  The standard reports with Communiqué contain reports about sales and orders by Country for international sales, US States, and Canadian Provinces. etc.  Breaking your data out by other  Geo Data like area codes, census blocks, DMA's. MSA's, county, city, etc., are possible, but require additional data not included with Order Manager and some data processing to link in the Geo Data.  If you are interested in linking your data to additional Geo Data, please contact us for more info.
