Promodag Reports is a reporting tool that enables Exchange Server administrators and IT managers to obtain information about all aspects of their email system. With its features Promodag Reports produces reports that you can rely on to ensure better security, business continuity, and to improve Exchange organization performance.
Reports are based on data sources natively generated by the Exchange server; as a consequence there is no need to install anything on the server. The product collects and stores the necessary data into an Access or SQL Server database. You can choose from over 80 canned reports and publish them to various destinations under different formats. All operations can be automated and scheduled so you can set up the product and forget about it.
I trialled this software and saw some benefits in its use and but not enough to justify the $8500 price tag that came with it.
Decent functionality and reasonable price
I've been using Promodag for 8 months now, and have become increasingly familiar with it. The interface doesn't seem nearly as intuitive as I would like, but that is the only limit I have found.
The canned reports seem only marginally useful, and I have created fresh reports based off the information I actually want to see, as opposed to what may be deemed by the developers as useful.
The product does lose its connection to the designated mailbox on occasion, but this issue could probably be resolved with a call in to support. It is an easy correction and hasn't been a showstopper.
Once everything is setup and the information is being imported properly, and the reports are as you like it, the application runs itself, and like the above description says, you can forget about it.
