Surpass Central library automation software publishes reports and notices to the worldwide web Users of the Surpass library automation suite of applications can now publish reports to the web or save reports in other standard formats. With the release of Surpass Central version 1.07, the core component of Surpass, users will find that all report screens now have an "export" button to choose to save the report in HTML for publishing to the web. To make long reports more manageable, Surpass Central will even create a series of web pages with automatic links for navigation between pages. This also makes pages load more quickly.
Surpass Central has always given its users the ability to design their own reports with its easy-to-use, yet powerful custom reporting features. When combined with the new Web Publishing feature, the possibilities are boundless. Librarians will use Surpass Central Web Publishing to publish reports of new arrivals, seasonal selections, course study materials and other information they would like to post for the public.
Statistical and administrative reports can be posted publicly or on a private intranet for collaboration with peer libraries and administrators.
The new export feature also supports saving to PDF (Portable Document Format), viewable with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, RTF (Rich Text Format) which can be opened by almost any word processing program; and XLS, Excel spreadsheet files. These options open up many opportunities for Surpass customers.
