Ready to solve problems
Before the release of our product, reporting for Internet applications was limited by various problems: lack of dynamism, simplicity and interactivity when displaying reports, constant exchange of information with the server. A problem of compatibility with various platforms and browsers. Lack of ability to produce complete customization of reports via the Internet. All this limited creation of high-quality and attractive reports for the Internet. Time spent for creating reports for Rich Internet Application was ten times more than the same in desktop applications. Developing Stimulsoft Reports.Flex, we tried to solve most problems of creating reports for the Internet. With our product, time for creating reports is similar to time spent on creating reports for desktop applications. Reports can be displayed in an interactive and animated report viewer. Interface of the report designer uses the latest technology of report development industry and works on the Internet. And the most important - our product is designed specifically for Rich Internet Applications, using the best Internet technologies on the market today.
Ready to create reports
As a part of Stimulsoft Reports.Flex a full-featured standalone report designer is delivered. The report designer is created using the Adobe AIR technology. This gives the opportunity to work on multiple platforms without compatibility issues. Report Designer provides a great number of visual tools for creating reports, thereby reducing the time for reporting. The basis for constructing GUI is the ribbon interface. This makes the report designer not only easy to use, but easy to learn, with the first steps of getting acquainted with our product. In addition to standalone report designer, Stimulsoft Reports.Flex product contains the report designer to launch a browser window on the client side. This version of the report designer has the same functionality as the standalone version. Using the report designer in Rich Internet Application improves its functionality, raises it to a new level. It becomes possible to produce a full report administration directly into the browser window without use of additional desktops, software upgrades and constant use of special administrators.
Ready to view reports
The most convenient way to work with the report is a special report viewer. Such a report viewer is available in our Stimulsoft Reports.Flex product. In Stimulsoft Reports.Flex the report viewer runs on the client side. Use of computing resources of the client when displaying the report can better balance the performance of web applications. The server is loaded much less than in traditional Web applications. This frees up computing resources of the server, allowing to handle more sessions simultaneously through the same hardware. Interfaces of Rich Internet Applications are richer and more interactive than the standard Web browser interface. We offer the user interface that is not limited only using the language of HTML that is used in standard Web applications.
Ready for deployment
Stimulsoft Reports.Flex is easily deployed on the client. Flash Player 10 plug-in is the only thing you need to install. But it is usually installed on the user's machine. There are no security messages, no com objects or even something like this. The Flash Player runs under almost all browsers in the world. This means that Stimulsoft Reports.Flex also will work everywhere. Another advantage of Stimulsoft Reports.Flex is its small size, which allows you to run Flex application very quickly enough. Stimulsoft Reports.Flex for Flex does not require special deployment on the server side and is usually installed with the Flex application, in which it is built-in.
