designer languages
With coresuite designer you only need to manage and maintain one layout for all marketing documents. Global changes are made in few minutes. In the layout you can determine the print data according to the document type. For example, you can have two different footer areas, one to be printed only in offers, and the other in all invoices or credit notes. Thanks to the new SAP® Business One translation functions, all texts in the layout can be translated to all languages in a simple manner.

Individual reports

All important master data and documents from SAP® Business One, for which predefined data sources have been installed, are at your dispense. Alternatively, individual SQL query include parameter can be set up by the standard SAP® query manager and can be used in your reports.

Printer outputs.

You can define the course of a print task precisely, e.g., the first or last page should be pulled from another tray. Further parameter such as user, copy, language and a free definable tax parameter can help to identify a printer as well. Duplex prints with a dynamic back side layout can also be configured.

In addition to printing single items using the print button coresuite designer allows automatic printing as well. The following options are available:

  • Batch printing: Print orders can be triggered by SAP's alert function. For example, every evening at 20:00 HRS, open A/R invoices can be printed. Emails can be generated automatically as reminders for invoicing.
  • Remote printing: coresuite designer supervises a specific file with xml based printing orders. The corresponding layout is printed as soon as a print order is placed in this file.

Pivot (contingency table)designer pivot table

With coresuite designer you can create not only tables but also charts and instrument analyses. You can also use the Pivot element for reporting (OLAP).

The Pivot object collects data in several dimensions and can thus answer questions like: "How is the product turnover distributed over the years and per employee?" You can also build up more complex figures by implementing further levels. An assistant helps you with the production of the table. For ease of calculation you have in the pivot table a row of special functions at your disposal. You can be as creative with your designs as you like.

eMail, fax, Word, Excel, PDF.

With coresuite designer, emails can be created from SAP® Business One. The eMail addresses and texts can be automatically defined. The eMail is automatically generated and the underlying layout is attached as a PDF. The reports can also be directly converted to Word or Excel for further editing.

Charts and diagrams

The charts in coresuite designer are rotatable around both axes. There are bars (vertical and horizontal), pie charts, cones, octahedrons and lines both in 2D and 3D and graded, grouped, stacked or simple. You can assign colors, explode pie charts, mark diagrams, let long descriptions slant, set up several y-axes and scale axes logarithmically. You can already see that there will be something for your graphical evaluation!

Dynamic: A single layout for all marketing documents in every language
