Which reporting tool to use and how to connect to it?

We want to provide users with a daily summary report that is accessible on-demand and also emailed automatically. The data that would be in the report would come from PI and a separate SQL database, so I suggested using SSRS and PI OLEDB Enterprise. However, our client already has Crystal Reports, Tableau, Jasper, and BIRT, so they would prefer to use one of the existing reporting services versus implementing a new one (SSRS). I've never used (and currently don't have access to) any of the four tools the client has, so can anyone provide recommendations on which would be the best for our purposes and how the PI System would connect to the reporting tool?

 

Thanks in advance!
