What problem are you trying to solve?  How to write a report with
Class::DBI?  Ideally, don't use Class::DBI for it -- just write the SQL.
If you really want to use Class::DBI, and the end result can be a list
of objects of one type, add a custom query using set_sql to the class of
the object you want to get back.  For example, add a search_by_system()
query to your User class.  It should do the joins across the tables in
