HORIZON's reporting engine includes a fully integrated report writer and business intelligence platform, along with over 50 standard final, operations and laboratory workflow reports.. LIMS end-users may run ad hoc reports from HORIZON menus, entering query, filter and sort parameters, along with output format (e.g. RTF, XLS, PDF, CSV). You can decide which reports you want to make available to classes of report recipients, depending on the types of data they might be interested in. Self-service reports describing sample status, test results by location and date range, results that monitor exceedances, and samples processed by varying methods and time periods, for example, are commonly made available for data consumers to run from LIMS.
The report development environment includes drag-and-drop report building tools, supported by a report code programming language built on Visual Basic. Policy-based content archiving and automatic report versioning features simplify management of large volumes of reports and spreadsheets.
