Designer Only Editions

Designer only editions are suitable for individuals, small teams and situations where Wise Eyes is used for a particular feature, rather than a general purpose reporting tool for the organisation. The Designer is a desktop application with a licence required for every user.

Solo is a single user edition providing an economic solution to a single reporting issue and attractive to sole traders.

Team is the multi-user edition using shared storage (report definitions) with full login and permissions features. Any number of team licences may be purchased. For easy and economic distribution of designed reports see the Server/Viewer editions.

Drivers are necessary to connect Wise Eyes to data sources. Popular drivers are included. Extra drivers may be purchased. Solo edition is limited to three extra drivers.

THE LINGO

Data Source Access

Most data sources require users to obtain a licence or open an account. Wise Eyes drivers do not include rights to use the data source (with very few exceptions).

Driver restrictions

Most drivers are available for all the platforms that Wise Eyes supports, however there are exceptions. Some drivers, because of the nature of the data source, can only be used from the Designer.

Supporting files

Some drivers require supporting files or additional software. Wherever legally and technically possible necessary supporting files are automatically downloaded and installed with the Wise Eyes driver file, thus providing a seamless user experience. For some drivers it is possible to download alternative versions of supporting files from the data source vendor’s web site.

Platforms

Windows and macOS. Other platforms and configurations are available by special request, please inquire.

Storage (for report definitions)

Solo edition: Embedded Firebird database (file on disk).

Team edition: Can use most relational databases. A client-server database is recommended (customer to provide). The customer is responsible for backing up storage.
