MasterControl Analytics™ is an easy-to-use software application that enables non-technical users to develop sophisticated, customized reports.
MasterControl Analytics provides a practical alternative to creating reports manually (for example, using spread sheets), or investing in costly third-party reporting software that requires specialized training or a programming background.
How can MasterControl help you?
MasterControl Analytics enables users to retrieve and analyze data within MasterControl. With MasterControl Analytics, any user can easily create a new report and customize it to meet their needs. Additionally, any report can be scheduled to execute on a regular basis. MasterControl automatically retrieves the appropriate data in real time, generates the report, and e-mails it as a PDF or Excel attachment to each designated user. With MasterControl Analytics, there is virtually no limit to the number of reports and report variations users can create.
Features and Benefits
The MasterControl Analytics module includes 45 standardized reports. These standard, preconfigured reports can be easily customized by non-technical users—or new reports can be created from scratch.
The powerful, yet easy to use, MasterControl Analytics application provides the following important functions:
MasterControl Analytics provides over 150 real-time standardized reports across all modules, including training, document control, document management, project , portal, business process library, supplier management, and bill of materials (BOM). Listed below are a few examples of these standard reports:
A user can optionally create a chart based on a customized hierarchical report. The user may also display the chart as a trend. An example of a trend chart is the number of sales created each month over the entire year.Drill-down Reports
When a chart is created for reports that have multiple levels of aggregation, the user has the ability to click on a data element in the chart to “drill-down.” This will display the previous level of aggregation, with the results filtered by the data element selected by the user. For example, a user can create a trended line chart displaying the number of nonconformances per month over the last year. If the user clicks a specific month, the system can be configured to display a pie chart of all the nonconformances that occurred in that month grouped by product.
Drill-down levels are not limited to specific number. A user can navigate back through the levels or jump to a specific level by clicking on the displayed “bread crumb.” (The “bread crumb” lists the various levels the user has clicked as hyperlinks, and enables the user to jump backward to any desired point.)Real-time Dashboards
Dashboards help management view relationships between multiple trends by consolidating trend charts onto a single page. For example, a dashboard can be created to show the number of sales each month over the past five years, as well as the average amount of time it takes to process a purchase order, and the number of sales broken out by geographic region.
Another example is a quality trends dashboard that displays the number of nonconformances over the past year, the number of CAPAs grouped by department, the number of CAPAs grouped by root cause, and the number of customer complaints by product trended over the past year.
With MasterControl Analytics, there is no limit on the number of reports and report variations users can create. Users simply tell the analytics tool which data they want to report on (e.g., documents, CAPAs, completed training records, pending training records, etc.), what users want the report to show, and the format desired. Alternatively, users can copy and modify standard reports to create new reports. The application’s charting, filtering and drill-down capabilities, in addition to trending, dashboard, and scheduling features, provide non-technical users with the ability to generate the reports needed by management to make well-informed business decisions.
