The standard system comes complete with over 200 Crystal Reports on sales, stock, customer and accounting data. These reports allow speedy analysis of the wealth of data captured within the Commerce Manager.
In addition, because so much data is displayed on the screens within the system, you may find that you do not need to run as many reports as with some systems.
Optionally available is PUMAR – the Trilogy Business Intelligence system for conducting ad hoc investigations using sales and product data from the Commerce Manager. PUMAR is also available as a stand-alone application powered by Business Objects reporting tools that will allow you to make decisions based on objective facts rather than intuition.

Whether you are using Crystal Reports or PUMAR, Trilogy utilises market leading reporting tools to give you complete independent control over the format, design and even the queries for your reports.
One of the common tasks is looking for unknown trends (e.g. are you selling more to one sector than another – and why). By understanding your market, you can focus your marketing campaigns in the direction most likely to yield the highest returns.
PUMAR will help you examine your operational data to make efficiency savings. For example, is there a line that is being returned more often? Why? What is the profile of the person returning the goods? The answer is often in data already collected and PUMAR will help you find it, providing a swift return on investment.
The PUMAR system allows for web based reporting. Managers at home or reps on the road can have immediate access to business data providing management efficiency savings.
For fulfilment companies, the system provides you with the ability to deliver to your clients their sales and distribution data securely over the web without any human intervention. You can also provide them with the means of conducting advance business intelligence – facilities that normally only large companies can offer. This is not only a powerful tool for client retention, but also saves you time answering client queries.
