A report is probably the most common way of displaying data within any substantial business environments. Unfortunately a lot of reports we come across are simply dull and visually unpleasant.
We cannot neglect the power of traditional plain PDF form, although we should not feel excused from being creative and resolute. There is no need to stay idle when technology allows us to experiment a little.
We asked ourselves the following questions:
- Shall we make the reader download a separate file?
- How many of them decide not to?
- Are there any solid reasons to bear with closed format limitations?
- And finally: can we create a new quality of report by designing it in a well-known form of a website?
