Group Reporting – Reports Module
Many of our customers in county, state or federal environments need the ability to aggregate data from multiple ER accounts (child accounts) into a single (parent) account. That’s where group reports come in. Currently ER offers the following “group” reports for parent accounts (the highlighted reports below are the newest, non-wildland related reports):
Report #1778 – Incident Response Summary for Date Range
Group Reporting – BI Basic
Group reporting isn’t just limited to system reports (via the Reports Module). BI Basic also has dynamic group reporting in the Analytics Module. The first release for BI Basic group reporting included “Group Maintenance.”
Coming soon to BI Basic…Group Reporting for Incidents, Training, Occupancies and EMS!
These Group Reporting features in BI Basic and the Reports module are intended for unique situations that are usually applicable to our customers with DoD, state and county systems. To learn more about Group Reporting, please reach out to your regional representative.
Going the Distance…Details Matter
As we’ve continued to add customers around the world, our team has been updating the maintenance work orders to reflect both miles and kilometers. That field is now labeled “Odometer.”
Thank you for taking time to read this month’s UpdatER. Be sure to register today for ADAPT 2020 before the Early Bird Pricing ends on October 31. Until next month, keep safe and we’ll see you at the Summit.
