The need for charting
"intelecrm is a CRM solution containing a reporting module called ireports. Incorporating charts in this module increases the value of the reporting module by representing data in a visually appealing way that is easy to use and understand by the end user," says Laura Engel, CFO of Intelestream.
"We looked on the web for a few months to find a charting component suited to our needs. Then we came across FusionCharts and tested its trial version. It had all the functionality we needed together with a nice look and feel."
The FusionCharts Experience
PRTG is a server application with its own web server and a webbased GUI too. The Paessler team was easily able to implement FusionCharts in their application, making ample use of the self-help options.
"FusionCharts helped us quickly create a shiny, all-new user interface for our monitoring software. We sell software using the try-before-you-buy approach. Therefore, creating a great first impression is very important to achieve good conversion rates."
The Paessler team was very satisfied with the end results that FusionCharts gave them, and the new web-based interface was highly accepted by the end users too. They have been successfully using FusionCharts for over 2 years now.
FusionCharts has allowed us to enhance intelecrm by providing a sophisticated and high quality reporting and charting engine that will ultimately increase the return on investment for our customers.
