Reporting and Analysis:

iVantage® gives you a choice of high-end decision support tools. With over 100 standard reports, you will find that most of your reporting needs are already met by iVantage. You can use the standard reports as is, or modify them to better meet your business needs. Some of the reports include:

  • Benefit statements
  • Personnel action notices
  • EEO reports and graphs
  • COBRA/HIPAA compliance reports
  • Employee performance reports
  • Employee profiles
  • Benefits eligibility notices
  • Employee/applicant skill searches
  • OSHA reports
  • Absence reports
  • History reports
  • Termination analysis

If the report you need is not included, you have several options. One option is using iVantage Query to get the information, where getting information is as easy as asking a question. No programming knowledge is required. If you type "Show me the hourly employees in St. Louis who are over the age of 30," your data appears instantly!

Or you can use Analysis Services, also incorporated into iVantage. Analysis Services is a new online analytical processing tool that works like a pivot table. For example, if you want to compare the salaries and number of hourly employees in St. Louis to those in Denver, you can input your criteria and Analysis Services will provide you with the information.

With the integration of Crystal Ad-Hoc, creating reports over the Internet is another option. This powerful tool utilizes pre-existing Super queries to allow users to easily create reports without knowledge of Crystal Reports®.

If you are more comfortable working with desktop tools, exporting data to Microsoft® Word, Excel, or Access is as easy as pushing a button. Tight integration with Microsoft Office provides data accessibility between iVantage and these desktop productivity tools.
