Stonefield Query Eliminates Business Reporting Bottlenecks

New Stonefield Query Version 4.0 Version makes end user self-service Business Intelligence a reality

ORLANDO, Fla. & REGINA, Saskatchewan & VANCOUVER, British Columbia-- Stonefield Software Inc. announces the latest release of its award winning software, Stonefield Query Version 4.0. The new release of Stonefield Query helps to eliminate IT bottlenecks by creating a self-service business reporting solution for the casual-user.

Since 1991 Stonefield has strived to build an easy to use database reporting software tool. "There are typically two types of users within organizations," said Mickey Kupchyk, CEO, "Power users and casual users. Power users, typically make up less than 20% of the people in an organization, these include IT developers, super users, and analytical modelers. Casual users, make up 80% or more of the people in an organization, include executives, managers, staff, and business analysts."

Power users have little problem working with most reporting software tools like Crystal Reports or Cognos because they understand database design, structures, relationships, joins, and SQL commands. To the casual user, on the other hand, this is beyond their technical ability. This is where the first point of frustration comes in: casual users don't have the time to learn complex reporting software nor do they want to become programmers.

Casual users have no alternative but to go to their IT department or software vendor to get the reports they want. This creates a second point of frustration: the "IT Bottleneck." The casual user can't get what they want when they need it.

Stonefield Query eliminates the IT bottleneck putting business reporting in the hands of the casual user where it belongs.

The latest version of Stonefield Query has seen over 70 enhancements. The addition of the new "application view", has made ad hoc queries and reports that much simpler. Stonefield Query now lets you see the data the same as it is presented in the application. No more searching through confusing tables and fields at the database level. Stonefield Query has done all the hard programming. All the casual user needs to do is select what fields they want and let Stonefield Query do the rest. All filtering, ordering, and sorting of records is done with a few clicks using the built in wizard.

"We believe that Stonefield Query is the first software reporting tool that provides this application view for virtually any database application. This is a great leap forward for Stonefield Query and business reporting," said Kupchyk. "Now, not only can the casual user produce custom reports themselves, but they can also report across multiple databases at the same time."
