Report Writer Reports

Any reports not covered in this manual can be created with our COGZ Preventive Maintenance Optional Report Writer Module. This feature allows you to write your own custom reports and fully integrate them with your COGZ system. Reports that you create will be saved and can be accessed from the Report Writer List.
