  • Handles multiple data formats natively.

  • Stores data from multiple sources, including CAD packages, simulation software, and postprocessors.

  • Provides tools for aggregating, filtering, and processing the data in the database.

  • Supplies a web-based interface for quickly and intuitively interacting with database items.

  • Includes a template editor for generating report templates.

  • Displays live reports that automatically update when new data is available.

  • Generates reports with a high degree of interactivity.
