The folks over at ProWorkFlow sent me a message about the new version of their software just released. Version 6 has a bunch of changes which will be useful for project management peoples everywhere but one change that caught my eye (and will be some appeasement for the SaaS naysayers is described below;

Custom Reports Builder
We have finally released the Reports Builder. This is incredibly complex code able to handle any report you can throw at it. So you can simply select fields, filters and display orders.

I was stoked to see this – so many people tell me that their (misguided) view is that SaaS won’t work for them because they simply cannot customise reporting sufficiently. This tool from PWF shows that data from SaaS can be sliced and diced as well as from any other app – data, after all, is just that – data.

Well done Julian and the team.
