How do you experience our PowerPivot reports?

Written by Michiel Dorjee on . Posted in Exact Globe

In one of my previous blog posts I reported that we have chosen PowerPivot, a free add-on for Microsoft Excel 2010, to offer you free reports to keep track on your day-to-day business progress. PowerPivot is not available as a free add-on for MS Excel 2013. In that version it is only available in the licence Office Professional Plus.

In the last period of 2013 we have created views on important tables in Exact Globe Next. Based on these views we have built Manufacturing, Purchase, Revenue and Stock reports.  You can easily customize the reports, for instance to align them with your own needs, or build completely new ones.

As of product update 407 of Exact Globe Next, the latest commercial release, the views are automatically executed when the product update is installed. In document 25.623.801 (for customers, in Dutch) a lot of details can be found like installation instructions, setup database connection and reports.

If you already use PowerPivot reports or have built your own based on Exact Globe Next views, I am very curious on your experience. Would you please be so kind to share your experience with us by leaving your reply in the comment box below this article? It is highly appreciated.

    Please inform your customers that PowerPivot is not available as a free add-on for MS Excel 2013. In that version it is only available in the most expensive licence Office Professional Plus.

    We like the reports, except for the fact that it’s only interesting if you use ‘Date’ for reporting instead of ‘Doc.Date’ as we do.
    It would be nice if there could be 2 versions; one with Date and the other for DocDate.

    Hi Leon,
    You are right, we did not include the ‘Doc.Date’ in the PowerPivot views. Recently I visited a customer that had the same suggestion and I added it to the suggestion list.
    Thank you for your suggestion. We will discuss it during the product suggestion meetings which we have on a regular basis.
