Avoid report performance problems in Microsoft® Access® by switching to Juris Suite Reporting.
Reporting is one of the top concerns among LexisNexis® Juris® firms. Juris Suite Reporting has the tools to help firm leadership and staff analyze financials and focus on productivity and profitability.
Here are a few benefits to using Juris Suite Reporting to access reports:
- Better Reporting Performance ▾▴
Access® based reports can run very slow for a few reasons. Access® is not designed with performance in mind, especially when it comes to large data sets. Reports can take a long time to run. Juris Suite runs on SQL server and is designed to run reports specifically against the Juris database. As a result, reports run much faster. Additionally, the Juris-specific reports used in Access® have not been updated in a long time.
- Expert Support ▾▴
Access® is a tool owned and developed by Microsoft® and LexisNexis is not involved with its development or updates. Microsoft® has increasingly published updates that change how the product works, so having the ability to keep up with those changes to diagnose and resolve programming changes is challenging at best. Juris Suite is a LexisNexis product and our teams are available to fully support it.
- Reliability ▾▴
Firms that use Access® reports often experience problems. Server migrations mean ODBC connection issues, reports are often lost when users move to a new PC, and Microsoft® updates often render Access® reports inoperable. None of these things will happen with Juris Suite. Reports are always in the central database and they will always work.
- Breadth of Reports ▾▴
Juris Suite includes all the reports you’re used to seeing in Juris Core with the addition of the reports in Juris Classic View Plus, Juris Supplemental, and Juris West Coast packs, all in one place.
- Point-and-Click Report Generation ▾▴
Juris Suite Reporting isn’t just a collection of reports. It is designed to allow you to select parameters for grouping, sorting, and more, so you can dynamically get the views you need.
- Improved Customization ▾▴
If you want to customize existing reports or create new Access® reports, you need to have advanced knowledge of Access® and the Juris database. Juris Suite allows you the flexibility to do simple modifications on your own with little guidance, or for complex needs we have a team of report writers who help you create just about any metric the firm needs to see and report on. In addition, you can see the queries and schemas behind those reports to aid in customizations and learning.
- Automated Report Distribution ▾▴
Juris Suite Reporting will automatically deliver chosen reports to internal or external people you specify via email or transfer to secure network location.
- Permissions System ▾▴
Juris Suite Reporting allows you the flexibility to define what reports users see based on their roles at the firm, allowing you to restrict reports that contain sensitive firm information.
