I have written before about Crystal Dispatch, a client based viewer put out by APB Reports. It is a simple no frills viewer that covers all the basics and lets you run reports with one click. You can read more about how it works in my previous article, and even watch a video of how it works.
But what is new this year is the price. APB Reports is now offering an unlimited site license to a company for $5 (yes, five US dollars). Adam Butt, the owner of APB Reports, said, “I want as many companies as possible to start using Crystal Reports, so hopefully this is a move in the right direction”.
So if you are thinking about deploying a locally installed viewer program in your company, this is one very low cost option to consider. For other options you can check out my annual comparison of client based viewers.
