Exploring Reporting Options in Sage HRMS (Abra)
You probably already know that Sage HRMS comes with loads of standard and custom reports. Whether it’s for government compliance, payroll analysis, or strategic evaluation of your workforce, here’s a look at some of the reporting and analytics options you should know about.
Starting with the Basics
With over 100 pre-configured reports on Employees, Time Off, Payroll, and Training, Sage HRMS likely has a pre-formatted report to meet the basic needs of most organizations. Simply navigate to the reports section, scroll through the list of available reports, define the report criteria (by date, employee, etc.), and then print, preview on-screen, or export the data.
Customization That’s Crystal Clear
When you need a custom report that isn’t available “out of the box,” then it’s time to look to the SAP Crystal Report™ writer that’s included with your Sage HRMS system. With the right skill set your options are limitless. Using this powerful tool allows you to create presentation-quality reports on just about anything in the Sage HRMS database – and in any format you want.

Running a Quick and Custom Query
Another reporting option is the Wizard-driven Sage HRMS Secure Query – a desktop query and reporting tool that allows you to easily generate ad-hoc and custom reports. You can select which fields to output, sort results, build record filters, and group or summarize data. You can then output your query as a report, spreadsheet, or database table. It’s a simple, yet powerful tool for those that aren’t comfortable with the Crystal Report writer.
Getting Visual with Analytics
If you’re someone that’s visual – or you just want to take your reporting to the next level – then it’s time to look at SAP Crystal Dashboard Design®. This optional add-on/extension for your Sage HRMS system transforms spreadsheet data into charts, graphs, dashboards, and visual what-if scenarios that allow you to dive deep and analyze important workforce performance metrics. The stunning visual displays are easy to create using a point-and-click interface.
