Volusion V5 Feature of the Day: Full Featured Reporting

With Volusion V5 (how’s that for a redundant name for a release?), merchants will have full control over their store’s reporting tools. Gone are the days of being stuck with “one-size fits all” canned reports. If you don’t the what’s offered out of the box, just create your own. How’s that for functionality? Robust indeed.

This feature is a ground breaker. To my knowledge, no other hosted cart offers fully customizable reporting tools from within the admin panel. I tip my hat to Volusion for continuing to define the phrase “robust shopping cart solution.” With every new feature released, Volusion adds more and distance between themselves and their closest rival. Hey MonsterCommerce. See that cloud of dust in front of you? That’s Volusion.

Here’s the info released by Volusion relating to this new feature:

In v5, the Financials section has been replaced with a much more full featured "Reporting" section.

You will now have the ability to build your own custom reports with automatic, customizable graphs. You can also bookmark and save reports, as well as export any report to excel.

Because the report section also contains a built in SQL editor, it will no longer be necessary to export your data to excel or another application in order to generate a custom report.
