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:
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.
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.
