Nazareth, PA (April 8, 2014) – SQLAdBoss from Software Consulting Services, LLC simplifies the process of reporting on Layout-8000 data by adding extracted data to an SQL database accessible by tools like Crystal Reports. This eliminates the need to manually assemble Excel spreadsheets with details from multiple publications.

At impreMedia, SQLAdBoss is used with Microsoft SQL Server reporting services to generate reports from a database that combines data from Layout-8000 and their other ad systems.

“SQLAdBoss is giving us tons of insights which are of great help on a bunch of key initiatives,” says Pervez Sikora, CTO at La Opinion in Los Angeles. “We have combined the data provided by SQLAdBoss with newsprint budgets, pagination data and ad revenue to help us better understand the efficiency and profitability of our Newspaper products.”

This replaces manually assembled Excel spreadsheets which were time-consuming and inefficient. “We are able to compare actual against budgeted newshole in near-real-time,” Sikora asserts. “We can look at revenue per page to help understand profitability better. This is helping in product development, workflow automation and in developing pricing strategies.”
