Company Overview

ClearTrack is the maker of a supply chain execution package that helps consumer retailers to improve operational performance and reduce costs by facilitating activities in their supply chain. The software-as-a-service solution provided by ClearTrack helps companies to coordinate and analyze the full product lifecycle by collecting data on quality management, logistics, shipping, and a multitude of other production factors based on individual client needs. ClearTrack serves as a data aggregator in the cloud working to gather information and applying compliance regulations according to retailer needs.

Business Challenge

ClearTrack required a reporting application that could easily embed into its existing system to help display complex data to end users. Having already developed a stable homegrown system, the needs for extended functionality for their end users and ability to still deploy the homegrown system where appropriate were identified. The Supply Chain Execution package offered by ClearTrack is utilized by retailers making critical supply chain decisions and often used to provide executive management an overview of the supply chain in its entirety.

In looking for an added reporting tool ClearTrack identified several key requirements needed to enhance their application. These included seamless integration into the ClearTrack environment, the option for deployment as an OEM product, and flexible reporting mechanisms. Interactive dashboard reporting capabilities were also at the forefront of the organization's needs. To build on its existing expertise, ClearTrack needed a solution that would provide an extended ability to create complex reports and improved simple reports in an easy-to-use format able to run on demand or at a scheduled time.

The JReport Solution

After performing a rigorous evaluation of the reporting marketplace, ClearTrack chose JReport as the product that would meet its extended reporting needs.

JReport was selected because of its native Java architecture, ease of integration into their existing framework and Jinfonet's extensive experience working with OEMs. JReport also provided the necessary dynamic report scheduling features for end-users, a more robust set of components to use in report design, and the performance characteristics sought by ClearTrack.

By embedding JReport into the ClearTrack application, their clients benefit from improved practical capability, timely reporting and easy administration. With JReport, ClearTrack and its customers enjoy a standardized display of complex data in their reports, and since JReport is efficient to administer and easy to use, overall user training time is minimized. Additionally, the superior dashboard capabilities of JReport produced a fundamental improvement on behalf of ClearTrack's end-users.
