Here are some nice alternatives to the built-in QuickBooks reporting:
http://www.bqe.com/ProductPages/autoreporter.htm – $95.00. Nice program. I’ve used this and it works very well.
http://qreportbuilder.com/index.html – $299.00. We own the "big-brother" QODBC. This is the little brother and is less-technical and faster to get the reports you want.
http://www.pashllc.com/index.html – $99.00. Looks just like QB so this should be easy to use.
http://www.gausssoft.com/prod_radialviewer_se.html – ~$200.00 WOW! Check out the video presentation at http://www.gausssoft.com/swf/RV%20quickBooks%20-%20presentation.html. Looks like a great way to pull business intelligence from your accounting system.
