Customisation someone better
"If you don t have someone around to help with jqgrid you are better off with datatables"

"It turns out jquery datatables is better suited for customisation and we have adopted this instead of using jqgrid"
from question "JqGrid reloadGrid and refresh new colModel and colNames"
