Rental Vision Reporter
The standard reporting environment available in Rental Vision is already comprehensive, however the Reporter module is available for those users who wish to have an even greater insight, drive additional revenue, enhance control or use certain advanced reporting functions.
A number of reports employ a drill-down format (allowing information to viewed at a high level before focusing in on more specific information), whilst others use graphical illustrations to present the key information at a glance. Some reports also offer the option of export to PDF format or to Excel (permitting your own extended analysis if required).
A sample of some of the additional reports/features provided by Reporter are detailed below. However, the Rental Vision evaluation version also includes an evaluation version of Reporter. An alert is shown whenever a report or feature that is only available as part of Reporter is selected in the evaluation version of Rental Vision.
