"Storeroom Management Made Easier"

What do you like best?

The flexibility. The fact that I can pull virtually any data from my ERP system and transform it to any format I need makes it my go-to tool for extracting data.

What do you dislike?

I occasionally run into performance issues with large files, which can be difficult to see before running and can be tough to troubleshoot. Granted, it only happens when pulling huge amounts of data and making known bad moves such as nesting NL functions, but some reports I can't streamline any more and take upwards of 50 minutes to run.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The better you know your data source, the more useful Jet will be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for many problems, most recently I set up a report to pull all storeroom items that need to be put away and build a table of reclass journal entries that can be copied and pasted into our ERP to put items into their appropriate bins. I could do this with a directed putaway function, but the Jet solution is actually much faster. I also can provide historical analysis on parts checkout, inventory turnover, and relative cost by functional area, all by pulling from similar tables to gather data on inventory activity.

"I love Jet!"

What do you like best?

I love having the ability to pull information from multiple systems into a single report, writing reports the way I and my company want to see them, filtering data as necessary for the user, and the ability to schedule reports and have them automatically send out based on my parameters. I also like to have the ability to drill down and see the base data that drives the results in the report.

What do you dislike?

More of a wish...I wish that when a user went to run a report, if the option field is a date, that there was a little calendar "date-picker" that could show up. It would just be easier than having to look at a calendar to figure out what the date was 2 weeks ago.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Carefully review your needs and weigh the ability to design and produce your own customized reports to suit you and your company versus the canned reports that come with many software packages. I think you will find that Jet makes it easy to get the information you want, when you want it, and you can be confident in the results because YOU know where they came from.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to schedule reports for sick/vacation time available/used; capital project status; daily sales information and statistics; financial statements; inventory...we use Jet for nearly all of our financial reporting and rely heavily on it for reporting and analysis in all areas of the company.

"Jet Reports is a terrific product"

What do you like best?

I love being able to utilize all of the features of EXCEL while accessing my Accounting database to pull financial data. I love the GL function and it's ease in setting up reports. I enjoy it's interface tax in Excel.

What do you dislike?

I wish you could lock a spreadsheet to a specific company. I have 3 companies worth or reports and sometimes I forget to check which company I'm in when I open a report and it calculates incorrect data. I wish it were easier to code more complex reports. The jet feature seems to crash occasionally which is frustrating. I wish there was a feature to remove all Jet components of a sheet (just values)if I want to send it to a coworker without Jet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend JET Reports to anyone looking to do more than just using stock reports in your financial software. Because of it's integration in Excel it allows you to use all the power and formatting ability that would be more complicated in another package. It's versatility is what makes it shine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Jet Reports is AMAZING! I've created over 50 unique Jet reports that allow me to save hundreds of hours of data entry over the course of a year. This allow me to present information otherwise inaccessible to upper management in a timely manner. We use to use Crystal report (which was part of our old accounting system) to generate our financial statements. JET is much more flexible and user friendly. It allows me to create any report I can think of in short order.

"Reporting - Serveral Hours to a Few Seconds"

What do you like best?

Jet Global has provided us the tools required to take a reporting proces that used to be manual and take several hours and convert the process to opening Excel and simply clicking a refresh button.

What do you dislike?

Like any reporting tool, it can be difficult for non-technical users to learn, but we do have a few who have successfully taken on that challenge. Since reporting occurs in Excel it is a familiar environment for everyone. The web portal needs some work or at least better instructions for getting it installed properly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now have a library of standard reports that we run on a regular basis. Some used to take hours to develop each period. Some are delivered via e-mail automatically via the web portal. We have a Custoemr Service Level Report that used to take more than a day to put together. Now we just open and click refresh. A quarterly corporate spend report used to take 2-3 hours now is also just an open and refresh process that takes just a minute or two.

"Jet Reports Recommendation"

What do you like best?

MS NAV comes with a lot of canned reports; however, there is always somebody in management that wants to see a report in a different format or the report you want doesn't exist. Jet allows me to extract just about any data in whatever report format I want. It takes a bit of knowledge to get started and sometimes build reports. But once you have it, you're done and they can be updated with the click of the mouse.

What do you dislike?

sometimes difficult to debug a report and sometimes the jet add-in disconnects so you have to restart your computer

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Jet for all Financial Statement Presentations. Unlike using just excel, if you have an adjustment with Jet, all you do is "refresh" and all data is updated. With excel you would have to copy and paste. It's a real time saver.

Our Industry is the Manufacturing of Heat Exchangers.

"The Best Analytics for Dynamics"

What do you like best?

Jet provides a solution that means that you can bring world-class Microsoft Analytics to your company, with the basic data warehouse, reports and dashboards deployed in less than a day. Expanding and adding to your solution is going to be better and faster that with any other technology.

What do you dislike?

With D365 Microsoft has made it much more difficult to extract data from The databases, which impacts Jet's ability to execute.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are interested in Analytics or budgeting in the Dynamics space, evaluate Jet throroughly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Analytics on the Dynamics AX platform, dashboards and reporting.

"Knowledgeable and prompt support and product ease of use "

What do you like best?

Highly flexible product with great user documentation. Jet offers great customer support as well as user self guided tutorials and a vast knowledge base of topics.

What do you dislike?

As with most software packages the more flexible it is the more complicated it can be. This is not so much a con since they also offer multiple levers of user interface with built in automation but it does require a more than average knowledge of Excel to take full advantage of the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has allowed for more advanced reporting and data analysis.

"Very useful tool for making reports from complicated data sets"

What do you like best?

Our database has a TON of data. JetReports allows us to run reports on a daily basis that make sense to various departments in our organization.

What do you dislike?

I would agree with what others have said: there is definitely a learning curve. It's not for complete novices. There is some excel and database knowledge that you need...not matter what anyone tells you

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have someone on staff that is familiar with database programming (SQL, etc) then JetReports is probably going to underwhelm

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have daily and weekly production reports that we need to send our clients. Running these used to be cumbersome and time consuming. I can now run these reports on demand with up to the minute data. The benefit has been more timely answers for my customers

"Excellent customer service and training"

What do you like best?

I like the fast response from Sales, Trainers, Support, Customer Service. I am always amazed the the quick response to any contact I have with the Jet Team which is generally via email. I usually expect to hear back from an organization within 24 hours. With Jet the responses are typically with in a couple of hours.

What do you dislike?

So far nothing.. Learning curve is longer than anticipated but took on three new software packages at one time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is a learning curve as with any powerful software not to deter from purchasing, just to be aware of.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pulling data from distribution software that is timely.

"Jet Reports enables rich, detailed, easy to use reporting."

What do you like best?

I love the direct access to our ERP database to enable different types of reporting. For example - I can compare post-sale customer discounts against sales (pulling from the AR and AP sides of our ERP) for live tracking of discounts. Without Jet, this would be a high-effort monthly process. Now, it's a click of a button. Additionally, I can create custom reports to deliver exactly what end users need (and adjust them as processes change) without the risk that a user will accidentally change the wrong filters. Important filters can be hard coded! And more...data warehouses! Consolidating detailed data into flattened structures for easy reporting is fantastic, as is removing historical data from ERPs to keep performance high but still being able to report on historical data.

What do you dislike?

It is an Excel plugin and so it can crash when doing complex or large reports. It does seem to add a little bit of instability to Excel. This is more true of Office 365 when Office/Excel is being frequently updated.

It's certainly not a big issue but it can be annoying.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solve budgeting issues by having frequent, automated Jet Reports run in the background and push to synced Dropbox folders. Outsides sales has overnight updates on sales, discounting, promotions, etc. This allows for sales to be more focused on promotions that generate sales. Jet also allows for easy review and cleanup of ERP Master Records - vendors, customers, dimensions, etc. to keep our ERP clean and improve data integrity.

"Jet Reports Review"

What do you like best?

Jet Reports is pulls data from our Jet Cubes, Data Warehouse and Microsoft Dynamics Navision.

The cubes and Data warehouse update nightly for the larger reports so Jet it not constantly pulling from our Live Navision DB which is very large and would take a performance hit. Instead it pulls against the Jet Data Manager.

What do you dislike?

Users that are running reports that are already built run into issues when we get a few versions behind. The problem is I have to get the Jet Report Writer updated first and that user must verify our current Jet reports run on the newer version. Once that is done I have to uninstall Jet on each PC and reinstall the newer version. I know there is a newer Jet Reports Software that would help with this but we haven't upgraded at this time but plan to in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a wonderful company with great support. I have always gotten answers quickly with problems solved..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Crunching Data any way you want. Slicing and dicing based on which department needs what information.

"The Perfect Reporting Pairing for NAV!"

What do you like best?

Jet Professional speaks native NAV / Business Central, meaning that option strings and FlowFields are supported! It also has it's own built-in drill-down capabilities and scheduling/autopilot mode for advanced functionality and distribution!

What do you dislike?

I wish there was some Power Query-esque data-relating functionality in Jet Professional to allow for multiple data sources to be linked (i.e. NAV with non-NAV).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the leap! Great features and functionality!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ad-hoc reporting across all strata of organizations (mid-level to C-suite), with full detail and drill-down capabilities and permissions-inheritance.

"Jet Reports"

What do you like best?

I love the ability to quickly view live data in customized reports. Since these reports are based in Excel, they're easy to understand, use, and write.

What do you dislike?

As a designer I've learned that it's not Jet Reports that has limitations, it's the data itself. If I can't get a report to work, it is because that's not the way the data is set up in the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch tutorial videos to understand what Jet Reports has to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Jet Reports for everything. Everyone in our office uses them, from budgets, to tracking invoices, to federal reporting.

"Sales Summary from Navision 2009"

What do you like best?

Once you understand the correct punctuation requirements in the query formulas to your accounting system, it is a very powerful tool. The drill down capabilities are a very nice feature. It will allow you to see all the supporting and underlying transactions supporting reported numbers.

What do you dislike?

In my case, the sales jet report template takes almost 8 minutes to process. My query is date sensitive, and I have to stop the query's auto processing to change the dates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its a great Excel add-in, which allows one to do Excel functions on data pulled from the accounting database.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reporting revenues under various pricing levels and customer types. This helps us target the more profitable sales customers

"The Best tool "

What do you like best?

The best part about this tool is the ease of use for designing financial reports and statements and your imagination is the only limitation. The Excel Add-in tool works so good with other excel functions that it brings the best of both worlds together.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when you are running large reports in background mode you cant use windows basic functions such as copy and paste.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been using this to get our financial reports and Statement also we have designed several statements to be sent out to our customer. The benefits for us is that we can design the statements and reports exactly the way our customers need it to be.

I am sorry to say this, it is not user friendly or it is hard to set up the structure to be able to run the reports

What do you dislike?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Change with the recent technological inovations, make it simple, try to have a system which is easily understood by normal average users.

What do you like best?

Our auditors request every report in excel so using Jet is a no brainer. I have a folder with all the reports and all i have to do is update the date ranges each year.

I wish jet could run faster on complex reports. I also feel that nesting functions for complex reports is difficult to master.

"Open up your Reporting without hiring a programmer!"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Dynamics is notorious for a weak set of reporting tools. Most BI tools are complicated non-intuitive, and provide no human support options should you have problems.

Jet Global solves all of these problems. It connects directly to my Dynamics database, and in an easy to use interface allows access to all my tables and their fields. With three different wizards to choose from, report writing becomes transparent even for those who are not programmers. When we do get stuck Jet live-person support has been outstanding.

What do you dislike?

My only issues with the Jet Add-on are minor. I wish that copy/paste was easier, I wish that Ctrl-Z worked to undo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a unique sales structure so none of the canned NAV reports really filled our reporting needs. With Jet, reports are fully customizable.

"A great and easy to learn/use report tool that ingrates will with Dynamics NAV"

What do you like best?

What I like best is the ease of use of updating existing reports that use Jet Reports as long as you know the tables and fields of your database.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is that when I'm refreshing a Jet Report that it occupies that excel program and that I cannot use another Excel window.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend that you pay for training for your users that have a Jet Reports designer license. Having the training will provide a good foundation/habits for your users in creating reports. Also, the users with the designer license should have a good understanding of how your database is setup(ex. tables and fields).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that we are solving is that rather than relying on the default reports from our ERP system we have the ability to create customized reports tailored to the end user of the report.

"It's ok; No really t a fan"

What do you like best?

The formulas a pretty straight forward and if you know what you're doing, it nice to be able to customize reports.

What do you dislike?

Jet is always crashing on me... (OLE error).; Jet doesn't do well if you need to modify the numbers (adding a hard coded number into the result of a jet formula does NOT work well), so it's not that flexible.

When creating reports, jet overrides the data I have in tables within the same excel spreadsheet even though they do not contain jet formulas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have support and make sure your system is properly set up for Jet. (Ex. - if you want to report on a specific dimension, make sure it's a global dimension). I've heard of users loving this product, but I find it difficult to work with.

Once you understand Jet Reports and how to design and maintain your files, Jet Reports is can be easily customized to meet multiple department needs.

The learning curve for this product is high and finding help in building reports is difficult. Integrating Jet Reports into existing programs, like Access, is difficult.

"Robust Business Reporting for MS Dynamics"

What do you like best?

Jet Reports report writing capabilities are quite extensive; if you can conceive it, they can probably report it.

What do you dislike?

It took some time to learn the syntax, table properties, etc. But once that knowledge was developed, the potential was unlimited.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Jet for in-depth business reporting, far beyond the "canned" reports available in Dynamics NAV. It's saved countless hours for ad hoc reporting (e.g., government and industry surveys, Dept. of Commerce statistics, etc.), as well as regular month-end and year-end reporting, account recs, etc.
