CrystalRox - Reports in Seconds

Due to the way that Windows ODBC and OLE-DB technology accesses data, it is quite common for many Sage Abra users to experience significant issues in performance with Crystal Reports. These performance issues can become very pronounced with larger payroll clients. It isn’t unusual for reports that are written against prHPost (payroll history) to take 30 minutes or more to run. With larger sets of data or data for companies with years of history, it is possible for a report to even take days to run!
Run Crystal Reports in Sage Abra in a fraction of the time!

CrystalRox practically eliminates these problems. By manipulating tags within Sage Abra's compound index files it is now possible for reports to run in a small fraction of the time that they took before.

To optimize a report simply add a "CrystalRox Index" for fields that are used in Crystal's Select Expert. The most noticeable gains will result from adding indexes to very large files (prHPost, prCkHist, prJobCst, prGLPost, etc). Candidate fields include fields that narrow the results from a given file into a much smaller subset of the file (for example selecting date ranges, certain earning codes, or a group of employees). Adding a CrystalRox index on the ChkDate field from prHPost will make tremendous performance differences in many historical payroll reports.

Do you ever have to wait for a report to run in Sage Abra? Then you should try CrystalRox!

How Fast is Fast?

"Our purchase of CrystalRox is some of the best money ever spent. We have a complex report that was taking over 3 days to run. So we turned to CrystalRox. The software took less than 5 minutes to download and install, then it optimized our report so that it now runs in about 30 minutes!"
