Today, software tool developer mrc announces the release of improved graphing and charting capabilities within m-Power. m-Power is software that rapidly creates web applications such as report-writing, Business Intelligence, executive dashboards, e-commerce, customer portals, and mobile applications to name a few.

While already offering advanced charting features (like chart drill-downs, tooltips, chart exporting/printing, mobile charting capabilities, etc…), this latest enhancement gives m-Power’s reporting and Business Intelligence (BI) capabilities a major boost. For example, with this update, m-Power users can now:

  1. Create better looking reports and dashboards

    The new, animated charts and graphs give m-Power applications a smoother, more attractive look and feel. Combined with m-Power’s point-and-click graphing interface, users can easily create attractive reports and dashboards in minutes.

  2. Create additional application types

    m-Power now comes with a comprehensive collection of charts and graphs--offering over 90 options. This opens the door to a far wider array of future m-Power templates, and lets m-Power users create additional application types, such as:

    • Multi-Line and Bar Combo Graph

      As illustrated in Figure 1, this graph combines two or more chart types into a single chart. It helps users compare different sets of data from within the same chart.

    • Interactive funnel chart applications

      As illustrated in Figure 2, these charts help companies track areas like website conversion rates, sales cycles, and more.

    • Cylinder charts

      As illustrated in Figure 3, these charts are useful for tracking Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), as well as progress towards a specific business goal.

    • Zoom line chart applications

      As illustrated in Figure 4, this line chart starts with a high-level view of data, and lets users zoom into select areas on the chart to view detailed data.

    • and much more
  3. Easily customize their charts and graphs

    m-Power’s new graphing features come with a wider array of customization options. This gives users more control over the look and feel, as well as the information displayed on each chart. Combined with m-Power’s point-and-click graphing interface, m-Power users can develop and customize their charts more easily than ever.

  4. "These new charts and graphs really improve m-Power’s reporting power," says Tyler Wassell, mrc's Manager of Software Development. "Not only can users create a wider array of beautiful charts and graphs, they also have even more customization options than ever before!”
