We're launching a 2-member startup as a brokerage in the financial sector and see the tremendous benefit of building interactive reports to help our customers choose the right product. I've become very familiar with PBI Desktop but am realizing that it's of no value to our business if we can't share the reports with our customers.
PBI Embedded seems to offer what we need, but a minimum of $750 a month is very cost prohibitive at this point. It's also impractical to manually start and pause the service as our customers could access at any time. I'm not a developer yet, but I'm willing to invest my time and resources if this is a viable solution.
Is there a workaround to automatically start and stop the service only when our customers login to our website? Are there other PBI options that I'm overlooking?
