Report2Web Unveils Enterprise Report Portal

Report2Web Corp., a Web-based enterprise reporting provider, Tuesday unveiled Report2Web 2.0.

Report2Web 2.0, scheduled to be released in April, is designed to give users access to business information through a standard Web browser. The product uses Internet server technology to securely distribute reports through a single user-friendly interface.

Report2Web is similiar to an external portal, the company said, as the software uses a company's intranet or extranet to distribute documents to an end-user's desktop. Report2Web handles various types of documents and puts them online.

Features of Report2Web include PageMart, proprietary technology that instantly retrieves reports up to a million pages. In addition, a burster feature splits large reports of up to 2 gigabytes and distributes them to the appropriate people in an enterprise.

Users can also archive reports, use e-mail features to send reports to co-workers or subscribe to reports and be notified via their in-boxes when a new information is posted. Report2Web also offers search capabilities for easy location of reports and key words within reports.

"We saw the opportunity to create a product that benefited every person in a company, from an IT manager, to a CEO, to the end user," said Jerry Levin, chief operating officer of Report2Web.

"By using the Web as an automated distribution vehicle, the enterprise report portal gives IT managers a tool that helps save them a lot of administration time, but it also makes it easier for workers in different departments to gain access to critical data," said Levin.

Report2Web 2.0 software runs on Windows NT servers. Pricing begins at $19,950.
