Integrated SSRS Reporting

Run your reports directly from Dynamics

Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is a server-based report generating software system that is part of Microsoft’s SQL Server services suite.

Administered via a Web interface, SSRS can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports. The SSRS service provides an interface into Microsoft Visual Studio so that developers as well as SQL administrators can connect to SQL databases and use SSRS tools to format SQL reports in many complex ways. It also provides a Report Builder tool for less technical users to format SQL reports of lesser complexity.

A key advantage to SSRS reports is the flexibility with which they can be delivered to users. Reports can be viewed via a Web browser, on a mobile device, or through e-mail.
