Introducing Skedler Reports via AWS S3 Buckets

Tailored for our enterprise clients, this feature empowers users to generate reports at predefined intervals and seamlessly transfer them to an AWS S3 bucket. The benefits are remarkable:

Say goodbye to manual report generation. With Skedler, reports can be automatically generated at specific intervals, ensuring your data is always up-to-date.
AWS S3 Integration
Harness the power of Amazon S3 for secure and scalable cloud storage. Your generated reports will be stored reliably, accessible whenever you need them.
Flexible Hosting Options
Easily integrate the reports stored in AWS S3 buckets into your enterprise portals, web applications, or platforms, giving you the flexibility to share insights with your audience.
Customization and Branding
Align your reports with your enterprise’s branding. Customize the reports’ appearance to maintain a consistent and professional visual identity.
Authorized users can access reports directly from the S3 bucket or through integrated portals and applications, ensuring easy accessibility.
