Likelihood to Recommend

9 Spokes

Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Jet Reports

Jet Reports is better suited if you have a specific population set you are looking at and less suited when querying or summing large pools or data, records, etc. I use a combination of Jet & SQL syntax when performing the latter because it allows me to harness the speed of our SQL server. Jet allows more for more customization when bodes better for users.

Cons

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • The number of "licenses" you are using can quickly and inadvertently explode causing your system to slow down.
  • Jet Reports could better help users by giving them tips and guidance for simplifying their queries so they run faster.
  • Jet Reports could explain user errors and post videos as to how they can be trouble shooted.

Support

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

Besides SQL, I have used no other similar reports

Collaboration and Sharing

9 Spokes7.0
Based on 1 answer
Access control capabilities are OK. Ease of sharing is great because the app design is made special for that purpose. I haven't dove that far into the app enough to generate reports. Formatting is very flexible because 9 Spokes allows the user to customize how the info is displayed. Security or lack thereof is not a factor for me so I am unable to give feedback on security.

Jet Reports allows users to send reports either in design mode or in Report mode which allows non Jet Report users to just read and view information. Reports can be easily disseminated and sent out to numerous parties by utilizing the Jet Scheduler function. This function is tremendously useful and instantly scales your reporting capabilities either as an analyst, manager, or new employee.

Data Integration

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
I gave 9 Spokes a five because the range of data sources is minimal. Ease of merging data from disparate sources is pretty good for the ones they do support. I just want to have more apps available for arranging on their nice looking interface. Perhaps next year my review for 9 Spokes will be better than 5

Jet Reports is currently configured for more than (5) data sources for our Company. This is excellent for us because we have numerous system interfacing scenarios every day. Jet Reports allows users to pick the data source thereby allowing numerous system's information to be brought to life.
