Telerik Reporting is a comprehensive and lightweight embedded reporting tool for .NET web and desktop applications.

Telerik Reporting R3 2023 SP1 introduces SkiaSharp-based rendering for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. SkiaSharp is a 2D graphics API for .NET, based on Google's Skia Graphics Library. This cross-platform API means your rendered documents will look the same on all platforms that support it, such as Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS/iOS, Android, and Linux. SkiaSharp can leverage the hardware acceleration capabilities of modern devices so your reports will be rendered faster and more smoothly.
