SQL-RD overview

What is SQL-RD?

SQL-RD is an automation tool for business intelligence professionals and decision makers within any size organization who are looking to automate the generation and delivery of their Microsoft SQL server reporting services (SSRS) reports. The platform includes flexible scheduling, exporting, distributing and delivering features for sales reports, operational reports, invoices, and other SSRS outputs.

SQL-RD enables users to set up schedules to run reports at any preferred frequency. Reports can be outputted in various formats including Word, Excel, Acrobat, HTML, RTF, text format, and more, and are automatically delivered to any email, folder, printer, fax, Sharepoint, DropBox FTP or SFTP. Reports can be set to run at a specific date and time, and hourly, weekly, monthly, or custom frequencies.

Real-time monitoring and event triggers help professionals respond to business needs based on events rather than a date. Reports are fired off if for example, a file is modified, a database value is present, an email is received, or a window is open. Dynamic and data driven schedule processes help find parameter values within the database, and generate unique reports for each one.

SQL-RD’s pre and post delivery automation enables the generation of custom actions to run programs, enter values in a database, modify files, and more. Automation schedules can also be used for general business process automation, without running reports. The platform’s intuitive interface facilitates tasks such as defining and scheduling report packages, and includes copy-and-paste support for the creation of complex distribution schedules.

Date and time scheduling helps organizations minimize and eliminate manual processes and repetitive tasks.

Event triggers help users respond instantly to client and business needs with reports and automation scripts whenever an event occurs.

Data driven automation helps generate and deliver unique reports for distinct values and improves SSRS reports distribution management.

Pre and post delivery workflows enable custom actions to enter values in a database, run another program, modify a file, and more.
