  • As a fully integrated solution, the ROI is impacted when a client gets stickier with our solution because they see the benefit of Windward.
  • Support has been fantastic for our development team so that as we integrate the solutions we have a clear and clean design.

  • The ability to include logic in the design has helped our clients dramatically decrease the number of documents they need to maintain through consolidation.
  • Ease of maintenance allows our clients to make changes and updates to design, even though they often have little to no technology background.

  • We have a feature in our solutions where we can provide multiple data points and generate mass correspondence with a single click.
  • We provide best practice templates for our clients, and then they can use those as a basis for their own financial institution's documents. They are able to customize the documents as needed. For instance, they can add their logos, change the color or font, or modify the document to conform to their corporate standards.
  • Most of our templates are created using Microsoft Word. The Windward Designer is an add-on to Microsoft Word. This allows a template to be easily updated in Microsoft Word without development involvement. Baker Hill has a feature where these templates can be uploaded and tested prior to deployment to the user base. This allows a level of comfort for our financial institutions.

  • Windward Studios will allow us to duplicate templates from our current system into our newly built nextgen software application. This continuity of service is crucial to our customers.
  • Having a user-friendly application allows us to train non-technical employees on how to create and revise templates without the need to utilize our developers or engineering resources.

  • With Windward Studios we can expose the data needed for the report (i.e. build a view), and perhaps build the initial template. After that users can manage the document themselves, saving money on maintenance and implement changes more quickly.
  • Changes to reports are so easy, users expect the same capabilities of our application. I only wish it was that easy.

  • Windward Studios is value for money. It is packed with features at a fraction of the cost compared to other tools.
  • Windward Studios is business friendly. The designer is Office applications (WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT). This limits the function of IT in the preparation of data sources. If the data architecture is done correctly, then you can have business users changing data tags as well.
  • Embedding Windward into existing applications provides a DocGen and report module and gives a new life to even legacy applications. Sometimes the drive to modify/change an application is the lack of reporting/visibility in the operations. With Windward, you can have a query and analysis module developed with ease and even act as a BI tool.

  • The main positive impacts are providing quick turnaround on customized customer documents, and the ability to have non-programmers design our reports. We also enjoy the flexibility in data source and output that Windward provides.
  • Also, once we wrote our initial reporting library, most of our work now is just report designing and passing in different variables for different report types. Outside of regular version updating there really isn't much maintenance other than constant report design.
  • The only negative impact is the yearly subscription/support contract and cost increases that have to be weighed against ROI with any software subscription service.
