Good management relies on trustworthy information.  Extensive reporting capabilities insure that LMS is a true management system.  A database is of no use without the ability to selectively extract and organize data into meaningful reports and inquiries.  LMS fully supports a user friendly reporting process. 

Over 100 launch screens can be used to zero in on the type of management information you need.  Report screens are grouped by the type of information they contain (Sales, Production, Financial, etc.).  Reports also differ in format and the level of summarization versus detail.  However, every report screen has numerous selection options.  Drop down help lists make it easy for an occasional user to make choices about selection criteria.  By changing parameters, users can produce a virtually unlimited number of reports.  With LMS, you do not have to become a database or query expert to make full use of your software investment.

Summary & Detail Reporting

Sales realization, cost and volumetric information is stored at summary and detail levels to facilitate both standard and ad hoc reporting flexibility.

Reports may be produced at a number of summarization levels including Setting, Harvest Unit, Treefarm, Operating Area, Management Region and Management Zone.

Reporting Flexibility

Data may be selected for a report using a variety of criteria including Date Range, Fiscal Periods, Summary level,  Source and Destination.

Many reports have formatting options that are controlled at the time they are initiated. For example, a single report may show Species, Grade, and Log Sort, or any combination of them.
