Overall Satisfaction with Jet Reports

We used Jet Reports as an add on reporting package to accompany mid market ERP solutions. It allowed customers to quickly and easily use a tool they were used to, Excel to query a database and report on a scheduled and ad-hoc basis. The solutions we created for companies did expand multiple departments from Accounting, Finance, Inventory Management, Operations and Strategy.


  • It uses a familiar language that most accounting professionals are comfortable with due to the nature of their work, Excel based formulas. The proprietary aspects the tool uses to query a data set are really easy to learn.
  • The scheduling tools to run large reports a over night or when there is low volume of users is a great way to limit the number of active licenses needed for ERP applications.
  • Connection via the ODBC standard allows easy access to a wide verity of databases with ease. This helps configuration and implementation time dramatically.


  • Licensing is at times a challenge if you are using a Citrix remote desktop or remoting into a server.
  • For complex formulas the wizard could provide more contextual help.
  • More online documentation would be a big help for new users.
Jet Reports is light weight and has a minimal barrier to entry for new users. Tableau has a higher learning curve and is more cost prohibitive.
Jet Reports is well suited for small to mid-sized databases. If you are working with hundreds of gigs of data or terabytes, I would consider a more robust reporting platform. For implementation where you may have dashboards or lots of static reports, I might consider other options. If you do foresee customizing report layout often and need the ability to tweak reports constantly, I would consider Jet Reports.
