What do you like best?

I like that jet can pull information from our Nav program. It allows us to create charts, and gather information. That information automatically gets transferred into Excel, so we can utilize it accordingly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The table builder feature is REALLY touchy. There are so many layers to the synchronization that it can be difficult to find exactly what you're looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be patient, sniff some lavender... drink some calming tea... in some cases: you might be here a while. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The largest benefit is the ability to access information from a different platform, and to bring it all into one space. Unfortunately, it comes with a large amount of trail and error to get the outcome you're looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It was difficult for us to find reporting software that smoothly integrated with the ERP system (Dynamics GP) of an acquired subsidiary. There was a big void in the reporting requirements we have and Jet was the unique solution for Dynamics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

End-users need to be very Excel proficient. Training was extensive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Limited reporting solutions exist for Dynamics which was not meeting our reporting needs as is. We reduced reporting costs and room for error. Customized reports and flexibility to company standards. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The better you know your data source, the more useful Jet will be. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

With D365 Microsoft has made it much more difficult to extract data from The databases, which impacts Jet's ability to execute. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

sometimes difficult to debug a report and sometimes the jet add-in disconnects so you have to restart your computer Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

If you have someone on staff that is familiar with database programming (SQL, etc) then JetReports is probably going to underwhelm Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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.

Response from Colin Greig of Jet Reports

Ann, thank you for sharing your feedback and concerns with the G2 community. We’re disappointed to hear that Jet Reports has been so challenging, but hope we can improve your experience with us and our products. We would love an opportunity to ensure you have the proper set up, and determine if anything was misconfigured. We also want to address all your concerns about logging in, and how you can manage report customizations without an outside consultant. Please reach out directly to our support team (support@jetreports.com) so we can get started and so we can share your valuable feedback with our product teams.

Additionally, we are happy to hear that you’ve found success with Pivotier – one of our first products! However, since we no longer support this product with development or upgrades, we encourage you to move all your users to the same current and consistently available Jet Reports product (https://www.jetreports.com/solutions/microsoft-dynamics-nav/) so that you can avoid any future disruptions in service. We’d be happy to discuss all your options so that you can build the best reporting environment for your users.

Please reach out with any additional concerns – we really want the opportunity to help you succeed with your reporting needs.

Sincerely,

The team at Jet
