Reporting - Over 200 Powerful Reports

We believe that reporting is one of the most important aspects of a software product.

AccountScout contains over 200 reports built and fine-tuned with the suggestions of our publishers and users.

Filter the Report Data the Way You Want It

The reports contain various "data filters" that can be applied to the report allowing for a virtually unlimited number of ways to analyze your data.

  • For example, an aging report can be filtered to include only advertisers assigned to a particular sales rep.

  • In other cases, you might want to filter a sales report to include only retail ads for a given sales rep in a set of publications.

  • The choices are limited only by your imagination!

  • Print only the pages in the report that you need.
