You'd have to talk to the vendor about that. Given that they don't
seem very responsive to other issues (leaking memory like a sieve),
they will probably tell you that their reporting solution is
first-rate and there's no reason to take it out-of-band.

Depending on the types of reports, you could look into using
JasperReports (no-cost, OSS... we use it). You *do* have to write your
own reports, but the framework is there and no webapp is required
unless you want one.
