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.

JReport

JReport is well suited for non-technical users (typical users in LifeSciences) who need to develop and run their own ad-hoc reports. The web GUI is modern, intuitive and the wizard make it very easy to create reports.

JReport

  • I was looking for an embeddable BI solution and JReport is the best of the breed in this area. Head and shoulders over the competition! Their intuitive drag and drop interface allows us to create great looking reports in minutes. JReport architecture is scalable and allows us to serve thousands of users worldwide.
  • Equally impressive was their responsiveness in implementing features required in the life sciences industry.

Cons

9 Spokes

  • 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.

  • Too many choices for reports

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.

JReport

We chose JReport several years ago. The main differentiators for us were price/cost, Vendor relationship, Support, and flexibility of reporting options. We also needed integrated security that would match that of our proprietary app and data warehouse solution.
