Great dynamic pivot table reporting tool - currently using v2.6

We moved over to using Flexmonster as our previous solution (Contour Cubes) was no longer available, and this has proved to be a great investment. Our customers certainly love the way that they can easily analyse and extract their data

Pros

We use the pivot table module from Flexmonster as a great integrated reporting tool which allows us to easily generate dynamic pivot (cube) reports in our web based solution for our customers. This allows our customers to easily filter, slice and dice their Sales, Stock and Ticketing data to assist them with running and improving their business. The ability to convert grid data into charts, and export the data to various formats including Excel and CSV. Printing of flat reports are a thing of the past now.

Cons

We have found some issues with filters not reducing the contents of other filters, but we have been told that this request has been passed to Flexmonster development.

Best Pivot for the Web

Best product of this nature on the market...very good support, very good documentation...not much to improve, maybe a bit on the visualization side...

Pros

Makes Excel pivots obsolete; Good looks; awesome API; Works in all browsers; Sample projects for all frameworks; Easy to understand and implement;

Cons

JSON configuration is NOT normal json, which means that you cannot save in databases as native json, since any parser would break compatibility. JSON config for the reports must be saved as JSON string because of that limitation (JSON.parse and JSON.stringify of config should revert one another without breaking compatibility).
JSON data expects a flat, one tier json, instead of allowing a JSON path to point to a deeper node where the data is inside a tree-like JSON. That would allow existing web services to be used instead of designing/customizing for FlexMonster on purpose.
Also, hooks into the data retrieval method are not allowed, in the sense that a custom method should be allowed AFTER the data was retrieved in the browser, so that programmers can massage the data if needed before FlexMonster starts processing.
Also, design mode should have a setting for mixed mode (chart+grid) - had to add my own custom toolbar button for that. Same for Expand-Collapse.
Also, some data fields that looked like numbers are automatically formatted with decimals, thousand separators...do not do that by default, if anyone wants it, they are free to customize the formatting. Adding $ to the left of money fields has some confusing customization, as well.

Flexmonster is a great tool if you want an in-built browser-based pivot table.

Lets me offer sophisticated data manipulation and visualization features to my customers.

Pros

Flexmonster is fantastic at what it does. It allows us to offer sophisticated data manipulation to our clients. Also, their support is knowledgeable, efficient and very pleasant. I would recommend Flexmonster for anyone looking for a simple, efficient and powerful no-frills BI solution.

Cons

I would like to see more aggregation functions e.g. median, variance, skewness e.t.c. I would also like to see more options for charts integrated directly into Flexmonster such as area charts, frequency polygons e.t.c. The cost can be a bit of a challenge, especially for SaaS, but the product delivers quite well on value.

Powerful tool to enrich any web application requiring a high-level degree of report configuration

Pros

We use Flexmonster to give our end-users the possibility to analyze the operations with the Pivot Table feature, in a similar way to what they already use to do with Excel, and they highly appreciate this!

The reporting can be highly customized (filters, dimensions, calculated fields, sorting, conditional formatting, etc.).

The integration is very easy, and the system performance is excellent.
The customer support provides prompt answers.

Cons

I'd suggest Flexmonster to invest a bit more on the chart configuration in order to let it be more comparable to Excel (e.g. min-max axis), but I trust them and we see that they are working a lot on keep improving the tool :-)

Hoping for more users to make comments and give ideas about things they have discovered to do with it

Good experience

Everything works well so far.

Pros

Working smoothly with 50-100k rows on different devices (tablet, laptop).

Cons

Date sorting doesn't work well. When the data with date format was passed to the pivot table it is automatically separated in three items: on days, months and years, not as one value as it should be.
