"Fast report and dashboard creation and embedding"

What do you like best?

Speed of report development is amazing. Once we learned all the tricks, we were rolling out production reports in a day. Embedding them into our web apps is easy using either the API or URL's.

Graphing options are extensive and visually engaging. Once configured, ease of use and administration is excellent.

What do you dislike?

Some things are better done in the web based "Web Report Studio" and others are better done in the "JReport Designer" application. My personal preference is the web based interface, and I wish all functionality from the application were available in both places. A few inconsistencies in how you do things between tools makes it a bit confusing to switch between them. It appears that the web interface is improving with each release, and soon there will be very little need for me to use the application for developing reports at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate the competition, and discover the value of JReports. We found it a very complete and cost effective solution.

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

We have implemented extensive executive level reporting using JReports, giving our executive team a detail level view of the health of the company. It has helped us track key performance metrics and implement business processes to address the issues previously undiscovered.

"Strong Embedded Reporting and a good team to work with"

What do you like best?

The team at Jinfonet has been very good to work with throughout the project. Leveraging JReport for a complex multi-tenat embedded reporting project was never going to be easy, however the final result was a fully embedded solution adopting the look and feel of the host Web Application, seamless single sign-on and performant reports even for very large data sets.

What do you dislike?

Although there are always issues when developing a complex solution, the teams worked well together and the outcome was a successful project. The learning curve can be steep at times and the Java development tools have some room for improvement in the areas of bulk maintenance for internationalisation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ensure you have a clear set of objectives and a strong project plan before you embark on an embedded reporting / analytics program.

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

JReport is the core of the reporting platform for the organisations SaaS products. JReport is leveraged for all customer facing reporting needs.

"Great on-boarding experience and very knowledgeable team"

What do you like best?

Throughout the time during our trial run of the product, our liaisons were extremely helpful and prompt in their responses to our questions. We are using JReport in a way that is not the norm, yet their team assisted us every time we got stuck. I would like to specifically acknowledge the help that Leo provided our team during the testing phase. He was able to provide a solution to every obstacle we came across even though, as stated above, our integration was not a typical one.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike. We are happy customers in the implementation phase at the moment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend anyone looking for a BI solution to take a serious look at JReport. Do a trial run and you will be impressed by the flexibility of the system.

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

We were looking to provide a solution for ad-hoc and packaged reports. We were most interested in giving our clients the ability to modify packaged reports and create new ones on their own. JReport provides that functionality and a lot more.

"JReport Review"

What do you like best?

I was looking for an embeddable BI solution and JReport is the best of 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.

What do you dislike?

Initially the product lacked some features but their support team reacted quickly to our meet our needs. The JReport desktop designer looks a bit dated, however the Web GUI looks very modern.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it!

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

Our platform was lacking customizable dashboards and analytics. It would have taken man-years to develop a similar solution, then consumed a sizable portion of my R&D budget maintaining it. JReport provides a rich feature set at the right price.

"Great Software! Great Support!"

What do you like best?

Throughout our entire proof of concept, the group at JInfonet were with us the entire way. When we have a problem, all i need to do is call my Account Manager and I get the support and help to resolve it.

What do you dislike?

There was nothing that was a dislike. The software is taking our business to the next level.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't second guess this software. If you want a package for any reporting or business intelligence. JReport is the one.

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

We were creating and running all of our reports with excel and merges. With the growth of employees we were not able to handle the manual work. In order for our organization to go to the next level we had to invest in a reporting software.

"Easiest to use reporting tool"

What do you like best?

It is very intuitive and easy to connect to your various data sources and create production and ad hoc reports using mashups of data from many sources. Using simple links it is easy to embed in any application, not just Java applications.

What do you dislike?

Having too many choices for report types is sometimes confusing but having the flexibility I suppose is worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

JReport is the quickest tool to get up and running in production quickly. I tried other products but had a very hard time building the report we needed while JReport has the features needed to build our reports quickly.

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

Providing reports for event registration plus many types of reports for invoices and getting data for quickbooks.

"Amazing embedded analytics platform "

What do you like best?

JReport has seamless integration with the web applications. Also, we liked the Interactive data visualization, customizable ad hoc reporting & advanced dashboards. With their proactive support, it is suitable for the needs of small & large enterprises.

What do you dislike?

There aren't any quotable issues that we have faced with the tool so far.

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

We have embedded JReports to provide our customers, detailed analytics of the dynamic data being generated from our e-commerce platform. The tool was easily integrated & properly supported.

"Outstanding embedded BI reporting solution"

What do you like best?

It definitely elevates our brand by seamlessly integrating with our solution. We are able to offer our customers and prospects a much wider array of output and display features and functions. It has reduced the extra coding effort required by our original implementation when different visualizations were required. By seamlessly embedding JReport front end reporting we have really stepped up our game with a world class solution that enhances our value to prospects and customers..

What do you dislike?

No functionality drawbacks. With the extensive functionality that JReport brings to the table, it was more than a casual implementation to insure that we had everything configured properly to insure maximum effectiveness in our information delivery..

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are a very responsive partner. Excellent training and demo resources

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

"Great Embedded Reporting Product"

What do you like best?

The product can easily embed in our software so our customers have no idea that the reporting is separate from our main application. Our customers demand that we can create complex reports to meet their needs, and also require the ability to create their own reports when they are answering questions related to how their business is running. By using Jreport we can consult with them and quickly build reports for them but at the same time can train on the basics in short time to build their own reports.

What do you dislike?

We have not experience any real issues with the application at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend reviewing this product when making a decision on the selection of a BI product. I have worked with several competing products and I find Jreports to be easier to use, and easier to maintain.

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

Our company supplies a data intensive software application for the Extended Warranty business. Our customers demand a solution where they can produce their own reports that answer key questions about how their business is performing and where their largest expenditures are occurring. Jreports has been the only application that I have found the works seamlessly in our software offering and gives us an affordable option to bring to market.

"Powerful Reporting Tool"

What do you like best?

JReports offers many functions that have been able to satisfy the needs of our clients and we have been able to create reports to the exact specifics per their request. Creating sub reports has also been a huge feature for us and our clients. We also like the ability for Jreports to cache data, flexibility of scheduling reports, and exporting in different file formats without the need for other tools.

What do you dislike?

There is quite a learning curve with building reports using the designer and it can be tedious. Some updates feel like they are still in beta due to bugs not caught during the QA process. Searching through the documentation can be a task when trying to find specific information. Updating to new build needs to be reconfigured due to the "Update" process not completely streamlined.

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

Ability to create large, detailed reports for clients to search and retrieve specific data.

"Flexible Solution"

What do you like best?

JReport is a powerful solution with great flexibility when integrating into an existing software platform. Multiple approaches are offered for defining data sources, such as JDBC or XML. And, it fits naturally within an service oriented architecture. Our team experienced a short learning curve and quickly began producing value for our customers.

Our team appreciates the ease of tracing data on the report back through our platform to the underlying datasource. JReport Designer is precise and very clear on the source and filtering of data for each field or visualization on the report. This greatly decreased our maintenance and support costs compared to other reporting technologies.

What do you dislike?

JReport Designer provides everything you need to produce a high quality report. However, the user interface, specifically the visual designer, can be tedious, depending on the complexity of the report. Our team spends the significant time, relative to other activities, on the layout and visual aspects of the report.

While the notion of versions doese exist on the JReport Enterprise Server, there is limited support for a revision control system, such as Git. A growing organization with an ever increasing number of reports will face a few challenges to coordinate rapid development across multiple teams and projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate if JReport will easily fit within your SDLC and integrate with your current technologies.

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

Our platform provides standardized as well as custom reports for all of our customers and their clients. JReport allowed us to eliminate other tools suffering from complex integration points with our core technology.

"Versatile Reporting Platform"

What do you like best?

The platform is built on distributed architecture. There is no single point of contact in a cluster of machines. Each machine is capable of functioning in isolation. Load sharing and Load balancing options available OOTB are diverse for various types of business needs. The best feature is its ability to detect a schedule did not complete due to a crash or any other reason and ensure completion.

What do you dislike?

Designing UI for a new report can be time consuming. Also, building an entirely new report requires a fully trained resource.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is highly customizable and can fit multiple needs

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

JReport is embedded in our platform and solves the need for business reporting through our software. It is easy to customize and allows for seamless integration. We have been using it to offer OOTB reports and build custom reports. We also use clustering of JReport servers for providing a high availability solution to our customers.

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

We wanted to empower users with an intuitive self-service reporting tool with the flexibility to enable any business user or employee to run the reports they needed on demand. Jreports was easy to embed in our product and customer were able to get the goal of creating the reports very easily.

"Powerful, fast, reports and dashboard"

What do you like best?

JReport makes it super easy to embed reports into our various internal applications. This allows us to get the benefits of data visualizations within our existing workflow, which makes it easy for our internal users to adopt.

Also, the quick start ad-hoc reporting was really helpful to quickly create reports and dashboards that were needed to help solve specific problems.

What do you dislike?

I don't think it supports SugarCRM, though it's not a big requirement for our deployment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

JReport fulfilled our companies needs. It was easy to use, easy to configure and provided just the right amount of detail and control that we were looking for.

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

JReport helped us visualize our customer service requests influx and completion time on a per product line basis. The dynamic charts helped more quickly visualize areas that needed more attention, much faster than with our previous static reports.

"Powerful Embedded Reporting"

What do you like best?

As a consultant I have been supporting customers over 15 years in evaluating and integrating reporting solutions. JReport is a powerful embedded reporting solution, especially for customers using the Java stack. JReport is extremly feature-rich and my customers were able to create impressing solutions using JReport.

What do you dislike?

I would prefer to divide embedded reporting and BI into two individual products.

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

My customers come from different branches: financial, industry, public services and of all sizes (small to enterprise). Quick setup and installation is a major benefit.

"Versatile Reporting Platform"

What do you like best?

The ability to interact with Java allowed us to embed reports in our application, and create a report center.

The overall ease of use.

The scheduling in JReport is vastly superior to Crystal Reports. We have about 250 scheduled reports that run regularly. It’s very simple to set the schedules up, and add and remove users.

Customization capabilities - we can make a report look exactly the way the business wants it, from the color background to the fonts and highlight colors. The end reports are very professional.

The fact that you can have so many detail sections, you can add as many of the banded sections as you need. The cross tab feature is very nice for certain reporting, you can do sub-reports and call different reports inside of one.

The server is solid.

What do you dislike?

The bursting reports could be a little more intuitive. Because we don’t do many, so every time we do it, there’s a bit of a learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When we set it up, I don’t think they quite understood how to do the catalogs and keep the data separate. We have some issues with locking up catalogs if there’s a lot of development. We’re trying to split out reports into more individual.

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

We were using Crystal Reports and had a lot of localized reporting and people doing their own spreadsheets. We needed to get all the data and reporting into one location that could be used and shared throughout the company.

Considering our multiple divisions, we’ve saved a lot of time. We’ve saved about the time of one employee per week from running and distributing reports.
