PayMaster has four options for custom reporting; each of those options are briefly explained
If you're not interested in creating custom reports on your own, we have a custom report writing
service we offer as well.
Our Ad-Hoc Reporting Tool is the simplest of our custom reporting tools. Starting with any one of
three templates (the Company, Employee or Payroll template), creating a custom report is as simple as
choosing the fields that you'd like to include in your report. Any fields you choose can be displayed,
formatted, calculated or customized to the specification you desire.
Once an ad-hoc report is built, it can be saved for future use and easily shared with your
colleagues. When run, choosing between a graphical or an Excel-compatible file result, is as easy
as flipping a switch.
Query Builder is a standardized tool that's available in many popular database applications
(e.g. Microsoft Access) and custom reporting tools (e.g. Crystal Reports). It's great way to look
at your database on an 'eye-to-eye' level and get quick answers to even your most complicated
Queries written with Query Builder can be easily saved and stored as a file. Results can be
exported in an Excel format with a single keystroke.
You can use Query Builder as a standalone tool or in conjunction with our Report Writer or
Report Master custom report writing applications.
Our Report Master application provides total control over how your data looks after it's
queried (by Query Builder). It also gives you the ability to create a variety of parameters
(i.e. user supplied values) so that your reports can be easily modified every time they're
run (e.g. only show totals, only show dept. X, etc.) with the flip of a switch.
If you can't find what you're looking for in our report library and are not interested in
directly working with our custom reporting tools, don't worry! PayMaster can write any report
you need at an affordable cost.
