Datalink viewer is a good report viewer.  I personally haven't used RePortal, so I can't comment on it.  It also sounds like you'd be a good client for Crystal Reports Server, which is a full-featured BI solution for small companies.  I believe it's more expensive than third-party tools like RePortal, but it also much more feature-rich and is scalable with other reporting tools as you grow.  I recently sold a bundle that included 5 named users, 5 concurrent users 1 copy of Crystal Reports and 1 copy of Xcelsius, which allows for some really beautiful, interactive charting and dashboards. Also, the users the ability to pull live data (entire reports, aggregate data and even report parts like charts) from existing report objects into MS Office Applications for really easy, quick integrated data access.

How do you want to distribute them?
Will the users log in or do you want to produce reports and send them to people?
