Actually, printing your own checks is not as difficult as you may think. The check form is a Crystal report form that can be modified to print the routing and account number using MICR font. This font is that specialized character set that is at the bottom of your check. Note for a bank to be able to read it, you will need to invest in a magnetic toner cartridge for your laser jet printer.
Your system is collecting a lot of data. The problem is that you can loose the information in all of the details. That’s where executive dashboards can help you.
The executive dashboard can take a set of data and summarized it several ways to make the results tell a story. The data can be hours, dollars, or various units of measure from Jobs, Sales orders, or Purchase orders. They can be summed by dates, employees, resources, customers, etc. The choices are endless.
