Microsoft FRx – Financial Report Extender

Microsoft FRx (Financial Report Extender) financial software is a full-featured, graphical financial reporting tool. FRx Desktop is recognized as a “best-of-breed” financial report writer, and is a market leader with more than 75,000 installations worldwide, 8,000 of which use Sage MAS 90, Sage MAS 200 ERP systems.

With FRx Desktop, the ability to specify row and column formats independently maximizes the flexibility of report formats. Combine formats with custom reporting trees that match your company’s chart of accounts structure to report on specific cost centers. Using a special tool known as the “Cleaver,” you can restructure your cost centers, or carve out new account segments not possible in your standard general ledger. After creating a report, you can print it, export it to an Excel worksheet, drill down to examine the transaction details, or distribute it by e-mail. Plus, FRx Desktop includes links that allow you to include external spreadsheet data in reports. You can also generate multi-company consolidation reports.
