RSS Solutions Upgrades NaView 5.0’s Reporting Functionality by Seamlessly Embedding JReport
March 22nd, 2005 – Jinfonet Software (www.jinfonet.com), providers of JReport, the leading embedded reporting solution in the business intelligence industry, announced today that RSS Solutions, a best-of-breed provider of Advanced Planning, Scheduling, and Execution (APS) solutions for the complex manufacturing and testing markets, has enhanced its NaView software platform by embedding JReport. NaView provides a significant, measurable return on investment to clients by reducing labor costs, increasing throughput, reducing inventory and eliminating waste. NaView also helps manufacturers identify inefficiencies on the shop floor.
JReport provides the platform with key reporting and data presentation capabilities. JReport’s 100% J2EE architecture made it very easy for the development team to integrate robust reporting into NaView with little coding. The easy, seamless integration freed developers to focus on other mission critical tasks associated with the application, which in turn reduced overall development time and kept the project on schedule and on budget.
“JReport is a great fit for RSS” said Phil Menary, Director of Development for RSS Solutions. “Because JReport is based on a 100% J2EE architecture and NaView is a Java-based solution, the integration of the two solutions was extremely easy and hassle-free. With the JReport reporting functionality we can provide a richer experience for our customers.”
JReport-enhanced NaView 5.0 gives customers the ability to create and view detailed, actionable reports on job progress, resource allocation, plant traffic, and a variety of other manufacturing-related statistics. Creation and dynamic modification of reports is accomplished in DHTML in real time through a set of familiar tools that are accessed through the standard NaView interface. Users never need to open a separate reporting tool or leave the native application to access reporting functionality; anywhere a user operates NaView, they can build, modify, view and export reports through JReport.
The “anywhere, anytime” data access that JReport brings to NaView 5.0 is critical in a hands-on industry like manufacturing, where managers and foremen may need to work from multiple workstations on the production floor of multiple manufacturing locations rather than from a single PC in a conventional office. By offering real-time access to actionable information regardless of a user’s location, JReport helps NaView customers more accurately forecast costs, timelines and staffing needs, which helps them establish and meet delivery dates and production budgets.
