Superior Alternative for SSRS

Bold Reports outperforms SSRS with its modern, intuitive, and flexible reporting capabilities.

Why choose Bold Reports over SSRS?

Bold Reports is a great SSRS alternative. It is easy to use, highly customizable, and affordable.

Modern interface

Bold Reports is distinct from SSRS due to its modern interface. It offers a user-friendly and intuitive design that simplifies report creation, and customization. This streamlined process enhances the reporting experience, making it more enjoyable than SSRS’s more complex interface.

Deploy Everywhere

Bold Reports supports diverse platform deployments, including for Docker, Kubernetes, and Linux. In contrast, SSRS faces deployment challenges on non-Windows platforms like Linux, needing complex customizations to work. For multiplatform report deployment, Bold Reports is the superior choice.

.NET Cross Platform App

Bold Reports offers cross-platform compatibility for .NET apps, unlike SSRS which is limited to Microsoft technology. Bold Reports supports Blazor and various environments, giving developers flexibility in report deployment.

Report Server: Versatile Database Support for Seamless Setup

Bold Reports provides compatibility with popular databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL, offering flexibility in database options for easier setup. In contrast, SSRS requires a dedicated SQL Server database for setup and configuration, limiting the database choices available.

Web-Based Designer

Bold Reports offers a web-based report designer accessible from any modern web browser, eliminating the need for additional software or tools. In contrast, SSRS requires developers to install Visual Studio or SQL Server Data Tools.

Empowering Modern Web Development

Bold Reports offers a modern web app with advanced reporting and data visualization capabilities. SSRS provides a robust reporting platform for Microsoft SQL Server. However, Bold Reports stands out with its contemporary features and web development-friendly usability.

RDL Reports from the Application or Database

In SSRS, RDL reports require deployment to a report server and constant redeployment for updates. Bold Reports allows direct usage of RDL reports from the application or database, eliminating dependencies like a report server. This flexibility simplifies reporting and suits those seeking to minimize dependencies.

Customizable Reporting Tools

Bold Reports stands out with its extensive customization options, seamlessly blending reports into existing apps. It provides flexible features like API support, localization, export options, and data control, ensuring a smooth user experience. In contrast, SSRS offers limited design options, which can delay integration with your application's look.

Multitenant Application

Bold Reports streamlines report management for multiple clients with support for multiple tenants in a single server, while SSRS lacks this feature, leading to complex environments with separate servers. Bold Reports provides a unified reporting environment for efficient management of reports across multiple clients.
