theReporter™ brings new functionality to easyPurchase™, allowing users to author and edit their own reports and dashboards.

Warrington, PA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014 - ESM Solutions®, a leading provider of spend management and eProcurement solutions for the public sector, announces its release of theReporter™, an add-on tool for its easyPurchase™ application. theReporter allows users to create custom reports and dashboards based on spend data from easyPurchase.

Entity administrators and end-users alike have access to this comprehensive set of reporting tools. Administrators have control over which end-users can access theReporter, and from there, decide who can add, edit or view reports. theReporter comes with six pre-defined reports based on common customer requests and ESM Solutions’ fifteen years of experience in understanding businesses’ procurement needs.

theReporter generates graphs, charts, and reports with advanced features for filtering data and sorting transactions by different criteria. Adaptable formatting and layout options are among the many useful features, enabling users to choose what data goes into the report, set up functions for the layout or adjust the overall look. ESM Solutions partnered with Exago™ to embed theReporter within easyPurchase.

theReporter improves communication within an organization by allowing several different file formats for exporting and the option to include notes detailing the information in the report. Easily accessible tools make it quick and simple to manage and analyze eProcurement data.

“Two key areas for saving money with eProcurement are in end-users buying on contract and understanding where money is being spent. The implantation of theReporter enables quick and easy understanding of spend data,” said Mark Smith, Chief Operating Officer at ESM Solutions, “theReporter integrates seamlessly with all aspects of easyPurchase to allow rapid and easy analysis.”
