Features

Unlike static reports, Info-Explorer gives you a core of information where you control the view – adding, deleting, and changing what you show – and seeing it at once.

Info-Explorer allows you to summarize, drill down into and filter your Sage 300 data in real time, giving you a clear insight into your business operations, helping you make the right decision, every time.

Unlike spreadsheets, there is no need to insert, cut, paste and check formulae and any links or deleted columns. This easy manipulation of information that you see is made possible because huge amounts of data are summarised in the background for easy analysis. In-memory technology ensures fast results. Info-Explorer allows easy changing of views without the dangers of spreadsheets or needing spreadsheet knowledge.

Use Info-Explorer to analyse sales, financial results, costs, inventory, purchasing and supply chain, operations, manufacturing, customer service and more. Use Info-Explorer for alerts and investigative analysis, your own detective tool.
