What is the Zoho Reports Advanced Reporting add-on for Google AdWords and how does it work?
The Advanced Reporting add-on is a complete business intelligence (BI) and reporting tool that allows you to dissect and analyze your Google AdWords data and present it in a variety of reports and dashboards. The add-on comes preloaded with more than 50 report options and dashboards, which means that you will be able to run your data and get the insights that you need in no time. However, should you require a custom built solution; you can always create your own reports and dashboards using data from Google AdWords AND any other sources and business applications; which really makes this add-on very versatile.
Decision making is improved thanks to built-in sharing, collaboration as well as publishing features that allow for better data interpretation within and across departments. Users can easily access reports online and permission based access ensures complete control over the audience. Alternatively, you can also schedule emails containing the reports to your users; thus providing them with the most up to date view of the data.
When it comes to the file format that you want your data exported to, there are wide ranging options which will further facilitate coloration, even when offline. You can export and email reports and dashboards in various file formats such as CSV, Excel, PDF, HTML and image. What’s more, you can embed your reports, tables and dashboards into your website, web application, blog or intranet page and control who can access them.
