At Mitacs, we used Sharepoint, and an “sp.” site as a simple location for employees to find reporting data. For the Step Registration System a scheduled report (a Crystal Report script), running from the back end database overwrites and publishes to this location twice daily. 

The data is used for management reporting, and not daily management of system registrations. A hyperlink was created to all staff to make the link to this site easy to access, and to reduce the hesitation to log in to what might be perceived as a different system.
