One key weakness of SugarCRM is the pretty poor PDF printing. We use JasperReports and the pixel-perfect iReports designer to produce stunning output. For example, SugarCRM's Quotes module has a "Print PDF" feature which is a fixed layout affair enabling you, the company, to change only the logo. Yikes!
So, we built a stylish quotation PDF report using iReport designer and changed the "print PDF" button on the SugarCRM quote screen so that our layout is used and not the default layout.
Here's an example....
We have used Jasper to great effect and have gone as far as replicating the HMRC's standard Gift Aid forms.
If you fancy DIY, the software is entirely free of charge but you will need to install iReports designer on your PC, JasperReports Server on a server in the cloud and you'll need to know how to create a few lines of custom code in SugarCRM. Alternatively, call us and we'll be delighted to do it all for you :)
