Challenge

WorkWave’s Pestpac customers’ #1 request was to be able to write their own reports within their browser-based application. They needed to enable ad-hoc querying without allowing direct access to the cloud-hosted data. The solution had to be easy enough for non-technical end-users to use but powerful enough to satisfy business analysts.

Solution

WorkWave turned to Exago for a solution that is:

    • Intuitive but powerful, with a report designer familiar to anyone who uses Excel.
    • Fully browser-based, ideal for cloud-hosted software.
    • Easily integrated into their application via a well-designed API in a familiar programming language.
    • Easy to add new data tables and fields to as users request them.
    • Compatible with the existing user permissions system.

Results

After embedding Exago BI, PestPac users and staff had to rethink what was possible in the application. According to Chief Solutions Architect Jason Kochel, “We're able to leverage things that are both inside the box with Exago and also extend beyond that to deliver value that we weren’t able to within our own application.” 

PestPac developers save time and effort when creating embedded reports and have empowered PestPac users to be self-sufficient rather than paying for professional services. The integration has even enabled end users to schedule and email reports, which is a feature PestPac never had before!
