This is a bit of a loaded question, since most of the search engines do not want to see automated queries from ranking programs. Google in particular mentions Web Position Gold as something they do not want used.
You can use free Google API programs such as Gapis to run your searches (you will have to register with Google to get your own authorization code) and then transfer the results to a spreadsheet or other program to make the reports.
Not as convienent or powerful as WPG but safer.

That said, if you must check rankings, WPG is very good. But unless you use a program with a Google API key, you are going against their terms of service. If you don't mind doing that, then go for it and use WPG! I do use WPG at the other major engines, but I'm using it less and less, as it's really not necessary.

However, clients tend to want to see these reports, which can turn into a real hassle, so having a copy of WPG around is always good I have been testing out "Ranking Manager" and for just checking rankings, its good, fast, and has lots of cool reporting options.

I've been hearing a lot of SEO companies have been setting up accounts for their clients... gives them nice little charts and stuff to see how they are moving...
