SSRS vs. Lasernet: a direct comparison

Watch documents be created in Lasernet vs. SSRS (Reporting Services) and see how document creation is 50% quicker in Lasernet.

Do you use SSRS? Here is why you should move to Lasernet...


Design Design

Is document design in SSRS limiting your output? Using SSRS has limitations on pagination, orphan data (single line on an extra page), printing duplex and driving printers - Lasernet solves all these problems.

If you struggle with design requirements from your business, Lasernet is the solution to your problem. SSRS has many design limitations and is a complex product. Using Lasernet with its drag and drop and simple interface, it speeds up the generation and modification of output.

Reports Reports

If you don't want to use SSRS for report generation, the Lasernet connector allows you to build queries in Dynamics AX and use these in the Lasernet connector for AX. Even complex queries have a One2One relationship of data to document design simplifying even complex documents.

If you have a simple requirement for a report out of AX, you can pull together AX data and generate simple reports by using Lasernet to select data and fields from AX - Rather than using SSRS to code the entire report.


With Lasernet, it's possible to integrate the output into Azure to pull and post messages and documents - a service that SSRS doesn't deliver.

Lasernet also integrates seamlessly into other third-party applications using simple properties dialog boxes rather than code. Lasernet can integrate to SharePoint, Azure or webservices allows extra information, pictures and documents to be pulled together in order to generate the final output for the client.


Printer management can be complex and often printers cannot be driven from the cloud solutions. Lasernet covers all these and can drive any printer, even if the printer is not directly accessible from a cloud environment.

Generating barcodes and images along with some complex design requirements in SSRS often results in the printer not being able to interpret it. Lasernet uses the drivers of the printer to ensure all requirements can be covered from driving simple Laser to complex barcode and thermal printers.


Does complex or even simple distribution requirements causing you problems in SSRS? Distribution options are very flexible with no coding using the Lasernet for AX connector. Logic and default destinations can be set using data from AX or standards.

Lasernet also gives you complete flexibility on deployment whether your AX solution is Cloud, Hybrid or Onpremise - Lasernet covers all these and can be delivered for any requirement.

Load ManagementLoad management

SSRS is not able to failover or load balance jobs coming through in the cloud. The Lasernet connector for AX allows for complete load balancing based on the clients requirements including failover and load management.
