Using the Crystal Xcelsius Web Service Connector is simplicity itself. You drag the “Web Service Connector” component found in the “Web Connectivity” category onto your canvas. Double-click on this newly created connector button to see its properties. Here you can enter the URL of your Web Service and see all the available data. You can then map the results of the web service call into your Excel data model.

Data residing in any data source, including Legacy applications, can now be integrated into Crystal Xcelsius to show key performance indicators in real time, enabling Managers to make fast informed decisions, increasing both business efficiency and profitability.
