FRS TAKES ALL THE PAIN OUT OF SAGE 300 FINANCIAL REPORTING
FRS is a truely innovative product and the first financial reporter capable of using Crystal Reports as the print engine. This means you can now have a fully integrated financial reporter with no external applications required. Instead of a clunky spreadsheet add-in, you can now design and print all of your financial statements with user-friendly Sage 300 screens. It also means you don't have the additional setup, training, integration issues and support issues that you get with external applications. Implementing FRS literally takes less than two minutes. No setup is required. Just install and activate FRS like any other standard Sage 300 module and you can then print any of the professional looking standard reports in any company database.
FRS combines all the best features of the Sage 300 FR with a host of new ones to give you the most advanced financial reporter ever developed. FRS has familiar FR functions like FRAMT & FRAMTA as well as all 60 FR fields from BALP to BALPY#PA however all the usual pain points of FR have been addressed. For example, FRS gives you user-defined report sets that allow you to print an entire set of reports at once instead of waiting around for each report to print before printing the next one. You can even print all the reports in the set to a single PDF file for convenient and professional looking distribution to report recipient groups. FRS also has multi-company consolidations built in. FRS can consolidate companies with different charts of accounts, different home currencies, different number of periods and even different year ends with no setup, export/import or mapping required.
New features in FRS include true Row Sets, Column Sets and Data Sets that are referenced by (not copied to) report specs. These report "building blocks" can be mixed and matched to form different reports and if you need to make a change - for example changing a line in the income statement row set - you only need to make the change once instead of in every report. This not only saves time, but ensures consistency between reports. Other new features include the ability to select a report "presentation currency" at print time which allows you to print reports in any currency with a default or overridden rate. FRS also gives you the ability to select rounding for each report with a simple drop-down list. Most standard reports default to "whole dollars" as you normally don't show cents on financial statements, or "thousands" for side-by-side 12 period reports to save space. Regardless of the rounding used, the balance sheet will always balance and the column headers in the standard reports automatically show the rounding used.
Customize with Crystal Designer
FRS isn't just the best Sage 300 financial reporter, it's the best financial reporter in the market. Other leading ERP applications for desktop and cloud have financial reporters with report designers that give you "configuration" functionality similar to FRS (but without the 60 pre-defined fields that FR & FRS provide), however FRS goes further with "customization" functionality. Whereas other similar financial reporters print directly to the printer, FRS uses Crystal as the print engine and that means you can use the Crystal Designer to customize your reports further. You can make changes as simple as adding a company logo or as complex as adding your own sub-reports with charts/graphs/whatever you like. FRS even gives you a second copy of the report data in an OLAP cube format to make powerful customizations incredibly easy.
