New 5x Faster Reporting Engine Coming In This Month’s Update

I’m excited to announce a new update for EstiMate coming this month.  Right now I’m in the process of rewriting all the reports in EstiMate to use a much faster reporting engine than the one currently in use; it’s about 5x the speed.

I’ve never liked the old one we used, but the new one from FastReports seems to be a much better choice.

This is a screen shot of the new report preview screen.  Note that now reports can be viewed 2-pages up.  Also note that this “Open Estimates” report using our sample data is 35 pages long – and the preview was generated in less than a second.  Using the old reporting engine the report took 5.5 seconds to generate.
