Crystal Connect™ allows for the distribution of these Crystal Reports® without the need for further or additional Crystal Reports® licences.

Whilst a knowledge of the Concept™ database tables is required to create reports, general Concept™ users can select from pre-defined parameters, using ‘friendly names’ for given data fields.

Users can also import and export information, to develop the report in Crystal Reports® and import the definition into Concept™.

Reports can be updated in a controlled manner, thanks to version control, and can be published on the web via FSI’s optional Concept™ eSQL solution (requires additional 3rd party Crystal Reports® licences, from Business Objects™).
