Having created TricTrac, a survey data collection tool, we were well aware that the vast majority of all surveys are reported in PowerPoint and Excel. The problem is often that a lot of preparatory work needs to be done in different tools to create the figures and statistics that need to be reported. This can lead to constant switching between cross-tab tools to Microsoft Office, which can make reporting a very time consuming and error-prone task.
We realized the ideal solution would be to enhance Microsoft Office® with a plug-in so that PowerPoint and Excel could read the data, crunch the numbers and present it well. And from that idea OfficeReports was born!
