m-Power Generates Consistent Reports Across the Board
December 11, 2007 Alex Woodie
Companies that use mrc‘s m-Power development tool to create reports can be assured that all reports generated by their m-Power applications, whether they’re in PDF, Excel, or HTML format, will have the same look and feel, mrc announced last week.
One of the key components of m-Power is m-Painter, a WYSIWYG editor for creating HTML interfaces. By using m-Painter to create screens at the HTML level, it enables users to apply the look and feel of that document across all documents, including PDFs, Excel files, and HTML-based reports, mrc says.
This approach gives users the advantage of maintaining a consistent corporate look across all their communications, and saving them a ton of time doing it, mrc says.
Chicago-based mrc announced the update to m-Power about two weeks ago. The company has adopted a software update approach modeled on IBM‘s program temporary fix (PTF) delivery model, where it delivers many, mostly minor updates, instead of bigger, but less-frequent releases.
