We are using Puppet Open Source but we would like start using a Reporting Tool but after I read!msg/puppet-announce/j44EbTJY7HI/dw1NI9OjWwQJ then i was wondering if there is another tool that allows to process the puppet generated reports.

Foreman seems like a good one but i would like to know if there is something else out there.

Yeah, looks as if i missed the "Foreman seems like a good one..." part. Not a reason to down-vote. Foreman might not be that easy to setup, but it is fine IMO.
