Features in the Jet Global 2019 Releases

As the foundation of what you rely on to make decisions every day, the Jet Global 2019 releases mark continued improvements to our existing products. If you are a current Jet Reports or Jet Analytics customer, you will notice a significant difference in performance and how quickly a report takes to run. Why? Because reports in the Jet Global 2019 releases will run up to 5x faster than any other version!

In addition to a huge increase in speed, several usability improvements to each solution have been added through navigation and notifications. We have also included Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central integration to Jet Reports and Jet Analytics, with a connector available in Microsoft’s AppSource.
