Alterview Report 360

This SuiteApp was previously named as PDF-ExpressEditor. The new name: Alterview Report 360 is just a new name of the same SuiteApp. Lots of new functionalities have been added during the last years. Check out the new data sheet for updated information!  

The heart of the solution is the Editor that really helps the user to create their unique printout.

  • Use a template to get started.
  • Use the tag-library to add content and data in the layout. The tag-library is dynamic and adds new freemarker fields when you attach a new search or record to the printout.
  • Preview at any time.
  • Save backups as you go along.
  • Restore layout from a saved backup.
  • If you have designed a nice layout, save it as a template for other users to use.

Data Collection

If you know how to create a saved search you know enough to add data to your printout. To add data to the printout you only create a new row in the Data collection record. On each row you choose what type of data you like to add.

  • Record - just write the name of the records internal id.
  • Saved Search - Create a saved search and use it as input.
  • Saved Search with label name - with this method you can use summary searches and formula fields as input to the printout.
  • Values - Add field of any datatype to be used in the printout. The fields will also be populated on the printout order form so the user can add input when they order a printout.
  • Font - If your company uses a special font you have the ability to upload that font file and the use it in the css.
All data collected through those 5 methods dynamically creates freemarker fields in the tag-library. This makes it possible for a user to just point and click in the list to add data in the layout.

Previews

The solution includes an Express-preview function that runs the layout with all its data as if you would have ordered it from the printout order form. As soon as changes have been made to the layout, you can click on the preview button and a PDF will be created instantly.

This function saves the designer a lot of time.

Prebuilt Reports

The Alterview Report 360 comes with several prebuilt reports. When the user wants to create a new printout the user can choose from a list of templates and this saves the user a lot of time and it also makes new and experienced users much more productive.

If the printout that the user has created is nice, the user also has the ability to save the printout as a template for other users to use. This allows companies to create a look and feel for their printouts.

Deployment

Alterview Report 360 is developed to make it possible for a skilled superuser or NetSuite consultant, without any JavaScript programming skills, to create and deploy advanced printouts.

This is now very easy to do. The solution comes with a step by step guide.

A new printout can be deployed in less than 5 minutes.

Really helpful solution

The PDF-ExpressEditor is a true time cutter. It reduced development time a lot for many of our printouts. With our company template we can now rapidly create any type of printout. I really recommend this product and Alterview as a solution partner!

Merge outputs to the next level!!

PDF-Express has taken the merging possibilities to the next level and I am left wondering if there is anything that cannot be achieved. The constant challenges and restrictions of normal merge in PDF and Word have long been a barrier to the creation of rich and informative outputs, but those days are gone. All you need is a sound understanding of NetSuite architecture and HTML but most importantly, you need to be able to stop thinking of restrictions. Easiest recommendation to make ever! Well done Alterview.

Amazing App

Our firm was introduced to the PDF Express project for a client with very specific reporting needs which could not be accommodated in NetSuite. The ability to provide the client with an exact match to their spec helped close the deal. This is a rock solid product and recommend to any of our clients who have reporting needs which require the join of tables, need professional layouts or have other unique requirements. I can't say enough about this product and the team behind the product. The whole package is great.

Time saver!

Our Company has recently implemented Report 360 and we are constantly finding new ways to use it in the organization. We will save a huge amount of time spent on combining data from different parts of the system, creating professional and correct printouts in a second.
