90 Degree Software Unveils Radius90 1.5, a Microsoft Office-Based Reporting Tool for Microsoft Dynamics and Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services Customers

Latest reporting solution from 90 Degree Software addresses reporting needs of business and IT users

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 12, 2007) - 90 Degree Software today announced the launch of Radius90 1.5, the new reporting solution to help Microsoft Dynamics and Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services customers solve their reporting challenges. Radius90 1.5 is a Microsoft Office-based reporting tool that provides users with the ability to more easily and cost-effectively create, modify and customize new and existing reports.

Highlights of the new version include:

- Increased flexibility for both IT and business users: 90 Degree Software has introduced two editions in version 1.5, including Radius90 Analyzer and Radius90 Producer. Radius90 Analyzer empowers business end-users to independently customize and personalize reports to meet their individual reporting requirements, without having to go through IT or accessing the underlying data within the report. Radius90 Producer provides IT users with full access to data with no restrictions, allowing them to manage the data, while providing the time saving benefits of no longer having to manage report maintenance.

- Superior report development ease-of-use: Previously, SQL Server Reporting Services users were required to employ a costly Visual Studio developer to create and modify their RDL reports. Radius90 1.5 includes even more features, such as the ability to create and reuse existing parts of reports, which allow SQL Server Reporting Services users to quickly and cost-effectively create their own reports, without needing a Visual Studio developer.

- Enhanced report editing for business users: The goal of Radius90 has always been to empower end-users to perform their own reporting tasks, independently of IT. New features in Radius90 1.5, such as advanced formatting and sorting, continue to address business end-user report independence.

Radius90 1.5 is built on the Windows Vista platform. This means that Radius90 1.5 looks and feels like existing Microsoft Office applications and can be operated on any recent Windows platform, providing ease of use and adaptability to Microsoft-based businesses.

"As a Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft Dynamics NAV user, we expect to gain significant value with 90 Degree Software's Radius90 1.5 reporting solution," said John Rose, President, Nuheat Industries Limited and 90 Degree Software customer. "This new version further addresses specific reporting challenges that both our IT and business users were experiencing. With Radius90 1.5 our business users can customize and personalize their reports, without involving IT and at the same time, our IT team can still have control over the underlying data."

"Microsoft is excited to collaborate with 90 Degree Software to develop new solutions that address the reporting needs of Microsoft Dynamics and SQL Server Reporting Services users," said James Utzschneider, general manager of Dynamics Marketing at Microsoft Corp. "90 Degree Software's new reporting product, Radius90 1.5, is an ideal example of how our industry partners can take full advantage of Microsoft's industry-leading business intelligence platform to meet the growing needs of our mutual customers."

"As a Microsoft industry partner, we are pleased to deliver one of the first Microsoft Office-based reporting tools," said Michael Matrick, President, 90 Degree Software. "Radius90 1.5 increases bottom-line value for Microsoft business intelligence platform and Microsoft Dynamics users - regardless of whether they are a business or IT based user - by helping them solve the challenges they face with their Microsoft-based reporting tasks. Radius90 1.5 is one of the best reporting solutions on the market today for Microsoft customers."
