Digital data is the most powerful and high-value commodity in the modern world. Now that we have entered the new era of big data, or data sets that are simply too vast for the human mind to comprehend in any meaningful way, businesses need to start rethinking their approach. At the same time, the enormous and unprecedented proliferation of data potentially provides every organization with many exciting new opportunities. It’s how you access and use the data that really counts, but that’s not getting any easier if you are still relying on manual processes alone. Business intelligence depends on your ability to access, quantify and measure digital data stored across an increasingly vast range of different systems and devices. This requires a conveniently centralized reporting feature that gives you full visibility into your digital assets to drive smarter decision-making and reduce the amount of time it takes to start doing more with data.
Automate reports and queries with Microsoft Access databases
As a general rule in the modern workplace, anything that can be automated should be automated. This lets your employees focus on core priorities that add value to your entire business without having to get bogged down with tedious routine tasks that eat away at productivity and morale. However, it isn’t easy to make sense out of Microsoft Access databases when you are relying on manual procedures alone. The reporting functions provided are also very limited, and getting to understand the inner workings of this popular database management system is well beyond the knowledge and skills of many people. MARS, Microsoft Access Reports Scheduler, automates and simplifies the process with a function- and feature-rich solution that lets administrators define and schedule customized reports and have them sent automatically to a printer, folder, online storage or email in a variety of different formats.
Date and time scheduling to customize your reports
To get started with MARS, all you need to do is set up a schedule using the simple, step-by-step interface. The first step is to choose how often you would like each report to be run, before choosing your preferred report format and, finally, selecting where to have it sent to. Supported formats include Microsoft Word, Excel, HTML, RTF and Acrobat among others. You can have it sent to various destinations, including email, SMS, FTP, printers, fax machines, folders or DropBox. When you set up your reports, you have lots of useful options to choose the frequency so you get them when you need them, without being sidetracked from your everyday routine. For example, you can choose daily or weekly reports, or you can create a fully customized plan from scratch. If, for example, you want to run a report on the first Monday of every month, every second day, or twice every Friday, MARS has you covered. Macros let you schedule reports and queries with multiple different parameters, formats, frequencies and destinations in any level of complexity.
