Great for Technical Users. It's great for people a bit more on the technical side. It allows developers to quickly create and modify reporting templates without having to modify source code or make updates to a repository. Potentially Difficult for Non-Technical Users. Making substantial changes to the data portions of reporting can be a bit difficult for non-technical users. While Windward's tools for this are great, it still requires an understanding of the database schema which not all users will have.

Pros
Docmosis
  • Docmosis is excellent at support and will work with you to find a solution for your particular use cases.
  • During our evaluation process, they were very helpful to get us up and running and we were one of the first docker based implementations so they worked quickly to get our infrastructure support setup.
  • Their solution is very flexible and allows several ways to allow support dynamic document generation at a very good value.

  • Native Office output -- not nested tables and/or horrible RTF like other tools generate.
  • Ease of use -- once the data sources are set up, creating tables is as simple as drag and drop (okay, maybe not exactly that simple, but you can certainly create a table of data using drag and drop, then format it and manipulate it as needed).
  • Responsive developers and support -- when I've had questions, they've been addressed VERY quickly and professionally.

Cons
Docmosis
  • There isn't much in terms of what could be improved, but the only challenge we have which is in terms of future scaling and isn't a limitation, but just something we're trying to be cognizant of as it might increase our infrastructure costs. Since we have large numbers of multi-nested document templates, and large documents. Although Docmosis did help us reduce the time to generate our largest documents by a large percentage. This is likely an area of improvement that all providers would need to address.

  • It is hard to pick out the tags if they are mixed in with a block of text.
  • Using report variables in select statements causes the selection list of available fields to not show anything.
  • The color themes do not match the office selection and it feels very disconnected.

For the most part, the Windward report designer is intuitive for our users; but there are a few areas where it is less intuitive. In these cases, our users need to search Windwards support wiki site, or even contact their support technicians. This can also be due to the short time we've had Windward and our lack of knowledge.

Alternatives Considered
Docmosis
We also evaluated Winward Studios solution along with HotDocs, we selected Docmosis for the following reasons:
1. We were using docker very early on, so they were very cooperative in helping us get our infrastructure working during the early evaluation phases, and went above and beyond to help with some of our template processing efforts.
2. When we were looking to improve the processing speed due to our complex large number of dynamically inserted templates, Docmosis was helpful with ideas. We were able to improve speed quite significantly with Docmosis' help by managing some dynamic aspects of our templates and including them inline vs. having them loaded dynamically.

We evaluated several other products to integrate with our new software, but Windward Studios was an obvious standout above the majority. Other applications required some level of software development knowledge and experience to create templates and a much steeper learning curve. After consideration of ease of use, as well as a cost-comparison between different products, Windward Studios was the most suitable product to meet our needs.
