Accounting Reports in Blue Link

Blue Link includes a customized Financial Dashboard as part of it’s robust accounting features. This dashboard displays a customized overview of your reports at a glance, but it also allows you to drill down into a long list of reports to give you the specific details you require. For example, Blue Link includes Customer or Vendor Aging Reports in summary or detail, current or retroactive, as well as more operational reports such as Vendor Payment Requirement Reports, and Deposit History Reports – a report used to review deposits processed during a specific time period. 

Blue Link’s Financial Report Writer – Excel Add-In

Blue Link’s Financial Report Writer is an Excel add-in that links general ledger data from one or more Blue Link databases to Excel and provides an easy method to create financial statements such as (but not limited to) Profit and Loss Statements and Balance Sheets.

Using the familiar interface of Excel, this add-in links to live Blue Link general ledger data and facilitates segmenting reports by up to 4 distinct segments (assuming they are being used in Blue Link):

  1. GL Account
  2. GL Department
  3. Job Code
  4. Cost Code

Blue Link’s Financial Report Writer is an easy-to-use reporting tool that transforms Excel into a tightly integrated analytical tool for your ERP data. This specific add-in links to Blue Link general ledger data, however, as an Excel tool, allows users to combine ODBC-linked data from other sources (such as Blue Link sales history, or other databases entirely) in the same workbook for easy access and distribution of important business data and reports.

With Blue Link’s Financial Report Writer…

  • Drill down into individual account balances and from there to actual transactions posted to the select account in the selected period
  • Easily update data based on specific periods and timeframes
  • Always report on up-to-the-minute data with a quick refresh of the company data from the actual database – this process loads the current general ledger data into the workbook
  • Create visually stunning graphs to represent data using standard Excel functionality
  • Eliminate the manual process of re-keying data or downloading information from various sources into Excel

“Liana and I are of course getting excited about retiring. Our last day will be September 26 so the finish line is within sight now. We would like to think we have left the company in good shape and in a large part that has been because of our decision to use Blue Link as our accounting package. We almost feel that we are part of the company because of the close working relationship we have. Thanks once again for marketing a great product and supporting it with a devoted staff.”

– Wayne Delroy, IT Dept, Monarch Siding
