Developement Timeline

Why did i-net software start developing a reporting solution?

In 1999 the product i-net Helpdesk needed a reporting solution. Back at that time there was a product called Crystal Reports 6.5 - but it proved to be unqualified. And that is why the company decided to produce a Java based Report-Renderer on their own.
