Designing and automating reports with Windward makes the whole process shorter saving a lot of man-hours.,10Windward's template engine is second to none.We use Windward Studios to format critical text reports that are delivered to airplane cockpits.,The ease of using Microsoft Word to create templates is second to none. Most other template engines require a good degree of technical knowledge. The feature where you can generate code previews through Microsoft Word is very convenient. Windward support is very quick and helpful Windward's PODs (partial templates) are very useful for multiple reports that contain common sections.,Maybe could improve the documentation, although Windward Studios support is always there. A lot of the links on Google to the documentation are obsolete.,10,Having non-technical people creating templates is a very positive impact.,10,We use a lot of conditional statements in our templates to filter our XML data. Windward makes this very easy and non-technical people have been able to do it.,Our organization benefited from using Microsoft Word's report preview to check the syntax of the template. Sometime we would be missing an end-if statement and the report preview told us exactly where our error was located.,Happy with Windward StudiosWindward helps us to design templates for outgoing communication of our government clients. Designing templates requires zero technical knowledge and has been made very easy. By using Windward, we have saved a lot of development time for creating templates, by being able to directly get feedback from subject matter experts.,Design templates. If/else logic, placeholders, repeating attributes, etc. Microsoft Word integration.,Licensing is not always clear.,9,Developers focus on more important things. Subject matter experts more directly involved in the template design.,10,We are able to efficiently create templates that are personalized for all the end-users of the end-products we deliver.,It's a great benefit to us, as in our organization as well as at our customers there is extensive knowledge of MS Office.,The transition was pretty easy, and the technical support of Windward was outstanding.,Windward Studios meets all of our needsWe are an insurance and finance company, and we use Windward to generate documents like insurance declarations, certificates, etc.. Our business analysts use Windwards report design with Microsoft Office products to create templates for our source systems. We also purchased their RESTful API to integrate with multiple source systems and third-party software.,Windward report designer makes it very easy for our business analyst to create the report and/or document template needed for our business needs. Windward RESTful report engine makes it easy for us to integrate with other systems. Windward has excellent support, either with their wiki site or their support technicians.,When we first purchased Windward, their support for JSON data sources seemed to be lacking.,10,Saved us time in creating and maintaining our templates, compared to our previous vendors' complicated software.,8,Our previous document generation software was very complex to use, even for our more technical employees. With the Windward report designer, it has greatly reduced the amount of time our business analyst spend on creating and maintaining our report/document templates. Also, the Windward report designer has multiple features to allow our business analysts to create the reports/documents needed by our business.,The integration with Microsoft Office products has been a huge benefit. We create all of our reports, applications, insurance declarations, certificates with the Windward report designer.,It was very easy to replace, with Windward's RESTful engine.,Simple, flexible, and easy to use, even for non-tech people.It is being used by the Software Development team and it allows us to download data from tables with different formatting.,Looping logic. Drag and drop coding. Easy integration with Office.,Could do with more documentation. More training videos. More intermediate to advanced videos to understand the full capability of Windward.,10,Allowed us to use a table we couldn't download information from. Allows us to streamline the process with templates. Easy to learn to use.,9,We are often given different tasks and problems to solve, our financial company has many different departments with very different needs, for this reason, we need a software like Windward that is flexible. Before Windward, there were some tables we simply couldn't display in a nice way in datatables if we wanted to download them.,Yes, we use Windward with Excel to download data and Windward with Word to send data to clients.,I wasn't in the company when they weren't using WIndward.,Powerful and flexible document generation capability + responsive support = winning solutionsMy company partners with Windward to deliver document generation solutions to numerous client organizations. I have recently worked on solutions that include loan documents for a lender, insurance letters for a medical auditor, and proposal generation for an insurer. The solutions range from generating one document at a time to using a web front end to build a custom selection of documents to combine into a single proposal.,It is very easy to get up and running to see it work. There are numerous options for data sources. Technical support is very responsive and helpful.,It would be very helpful if it was possible for tag logic to handle an array of data. Without it, the syntax can become very verbose when there are multiple logical conditions to check. Most tags are only built to handle a single piece of data so it can be a little confusing when a query only appears to return 1 record.,10,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.,10,This ability is critical. I don't think we'd use it without the ability to logically modify documents based on IF or SELECT CASE statements. With this logic, a single template can handle numerous variations of output, which lowers both implementation and maintenance cost and effort.,Almost every organization uses Word and Excel documents. The ability to mix in live data has long been a goal with mail merge, but Windward makes it much easier and provides many more data source options.,Nintex PlatformWindward Studios - A Great Value PropositionIn our cloud-based software solutions for financial institutions, Baker Hill NextGen® and the Baker Hill Legacy solutions, we have integrated with the Windward Engine. Our clients use the Windward Designer to create their documents and upload them to our solution. Then we use the Windward Engine to produce those documents on demand. Our clients are very happy with their custom documents.,A document can be created in many different formats, like Word or Excel, and be output into many different formats, like PDF, Word, Excel. The document is generated based on the data and the document template you provide. The template can have conditions to format what is shown based on the data, and still retain the powerful formatting of the platform like Microsoft Word. Windward Support is very responsive when we reach out with questions or problems.,The documentation for the Wiki could use more examples of how to use the functions. We tend not to upgrade very often. When we do upgrade there can be significant feature changes that necessitate template rework.,9,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.,8,Prior to Windward, we had a tool that allowed us to merge data into our documents, but the documents did not have conditional formatting or the ability to hide or include data based on other data points. Clients could not easily create or modify their own documents. We had to do it for them at a cost and, usually, it was not in a time frame that they wanted. In addition, for us, it was clunky and hard to use. A far cry from Windward. This is really a big step forward.,Yes, our organization and more importantly, our clients, have benefited from Windward. They are in control and can edit their templates as needed with minimal involvement from us.,The integration to the Windward Engine involved very few lines of code. This has been made easier since Windward is on nuget.org. Upgrades are easy to do.,Windward Studios -- A Great Reporting SolutionWe use Windward Reporting solutions to help with reporting needs. We wanted the ability to create dynamically generated content, but also allow non-technical individuals to be able to edit and maintain the static content within the report. Windward allows us the ability to provide data friendly reports to our client's and design them with our own branding and style to make them easy to read and review. We use Windward's solution for our whole organization.,Allow business users to modify and update report content without the need for engaging a software developer. Create user-friendly, content-rich reports that help to support the dynamic data we wanted to present to the client. We initially purchased Windward to help build reports related to disclosures to our clients. Windward was the perfect solution for solving this issue.,Some functions in Word related to graphics do not always translate when producing the Windward report. We have overcome these by tweaking the design of the report at times. This issue is more common on reports that have many graphics and complex layouts. Some reports rendering to PDF to not render like the original report. We have found it is important to stay current with upgrades. Sometimes a report would have to be reworked when moving up 3 o 4 version of the software.,10,Allow cost savings to allow business users to update reports without involving a developer. Ease of maintenance for developers to help minimize their time writing reports. Cost effective solution for our organization on a reporting engine.,8,Windward provides the ability to personalize our reports, which is very important to our company. We need the ability to create static content and integrate this easily with dynamic content. This has increased the professionalism of our reports and the end result is an easier to understand document for our clients. We use the Windward reporting tool in many aspects from proposals to disclosures and the quality of our reports is very high using this tool.,Windward allows us to use familiar design tools for developing reports. This is very helpful for our business users who can use Word or Excel to create the report. They do not have to learn another design tool, they can use tools they are already familiar with. Once they develop the report it is easy to involve a developer to help add the dynamic content where they designated it on the report.,We did not replace another reporting solution with Windward when we originally purchased it. Our initial setup was easy and we were able to start using the solution within days of purchasing.,Windward Studios RocksWe have selected Windward Studios as our replacement for Oracle Reports. Finding a product that allowed users to easily change their own text and graphics content on correspondence was the main focus. With Windward Studios, users can use Microsoft Word to integrate their report templates with our database application to generate high-quality documents. With very high volume printing requirements, speed was also a critical factor. Windward Studios easily met our expectations. We are very pleased with this product.,Easily integrates MS Word templates with database tables or views. Generates high-quality output at great speeds. Produces output in several formats for a variety of uses.,We had difficulty loading the jar file for the Java engine in our Oracle database. Calling reports using the command line worked fine.,9,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.,9,Changing report content and layout with Oracle Reports was difficult and had to be done by developers. Now users can change text, graphics, or database values on their own. Clients don't like to have to pay for minor changes. Now they don't.,We weren't able to use any of the templates so far. However, generating new reports is so easy it didn't really matter to us.,We replaced Oracle Reports with Windward Studios because creating and maintaining reports was very time-consuming. Users could not maintain report formats and managing report content was difficult to support.,Document Generation made easy!We have embedded Windward Studios in our Loan Automation Solution and provided a document and report generation module with ease. Given that the design is totally done in MS Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint), we prepared the templates for 40+ legal agreements and 20+ reports within weeks with minimal coding.,Design documents and reports with MS Office (WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT). This can be done by the business and not only be the IT. Template maintenance, which is usually mostly on content, can be done solely by business users. Insert tags and business logic within documents to show/hide paragraphs depending on data or user input. Integrates easily with 3rd party applications and it can also be used as the document and report generation engine of your software solution. It can pull data from multiple sources (SQL, XML, OData, etc).,Better and more updated documentation. There is a wealth of functionality and the knowledge base does not reveal this much. You must be very specific in what you are looking for. Web service consumption besides OData to pull data from other systems directly into the template would have taken Windward to another level. User support in European timezones. :-),10,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.,10,Building intelligence with documents is a must in that it helps avoid developing multiple templates with minor differentiation. A super template can be developed and with the use of conditional logic, you can have it presented on a case by case basis.,This is the biggest advantage of Windward Studios: the learning curve is almost non-existence. The time it takes to describe Word to a user, is the same time it takes to explain Windward to an advanced key user and IT personnel.,Windward Reports - The Best Solution for our BusinessWe use the .NET Windward Reporting engine across several of our applications. It is our primary tool for generating sales proposals, automated presentations, orders, industry specification documents, and reports. The main reason we use Windward is the ability to not only design our reports right within MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, but also the reliable recreation of these same documents at runtime. We receive very detailed forms from our customers who want their data merged into an exact representation of that document, and Windward has reliably provided us with this functionality.,If you have an existing Word or Excel document that you need to populate with data, then Windward is the right product for this functionality. It will reliably recreate this document in the same format (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) or in PDF (there are other formats as well but this is what we use primarily). The use of office documents as report templates allow us to have non-technical people submit reports to us and then we have a report writer who can tag the document for use in Windward. All of this is done without any specific programming knowledge other than AutoTag which is pretty easy to use. This allows us to free up valuable programming resources for other tasks. The flexibility of Windward Reports allows us to generate data sources that are formatted around our business logic knowing that we don't have to worry about some rigid data specifications or requirements from our reporting tool. However, our data is structured so we're able to pull it into AutoTag and get exactly what we need for our reporting requirements.,I know we have wanted some more robust features in the powerpoint presentations, but to be honest we haven't looked at the update in the last two versions. So, a criticism of this wouldn't be fair because I'm not up to date on their more current PPT offerings. One of the issues we've had in the past is getting the licensing correct. The licensing structure is a bit strict and can be a little unwieldy at times. Once it's set up we don't ever have issues, but when upgrading or migrating servers we've had issues in the past, and if you have licensing issue it can shut down reporting on your server until it is resolved. I will say that their support team is responsive and has always helped us to work through our issues. If I were recommending Windward to someone I would mention our problems with licensing so they would pay specific when setting up their configuration, but it wouldn't keep me from recommending their services.,10,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.,10,This is the main benefit that sold us on Windward. Our business is all about customizing data output specifically to customer needs. Whether it's technical specification documents, sales proposals, or excel data feeds, we're able to quickly generate exactly what our clients want. We want to give them their data in the exact format they want, and Windward allows us to do that. The challenge we faced before that was converting business documents (Word, Excel, RTF) into reports in more standard programming reporting interfaces. This never produced output that was reliable enough to meet our customer's needs. The other route would be office automation, and Windward has done all of that plumbing for us to free us up to work on other higher priorities in our development cycle.,This is the main benefit it has provided for us. I believe I've covered this pretty extensively in this review.,Honestly, it's been a very long time since we moved over to Windward, and I don't even remember the name of the reporting component we were using. We went through a couple of them (including Crystal Reports way back when). I just don't remember the process it was so long ago.,Great Solution for Word and Excel UsersWindward Studios was being used to create custom reporting for SaaS administrators clients. Both our administrators and our clients have different reporting needs and Windward allows each user to create and modify their own report templates based on their specific requirements. Windward reduces the time required for custom report creation and modification.,Windward handles multiple reporting template formats using tools people are already familiar with. Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel are particularly useful for us. Windward has great technical support. Questions and issues are always answered in a timely manner. Windward has multiple pricing options which were helpful for us in getting started.,I would like to see more organized and up to date documentation and videos for setup and training. It depends on your particular setup and requirements, but our particular setup required a separate Windows server to run the Restful Engine. A cloud-based web-service that Windward maintains would be preferred. While Windward's Microsoft based tools are great, they can be a bit intimidating to non-programmers at first glance.,9,I believe developers are still helpful for modifying and creating Windward documents, but Windward helps tremendously in reducing the time required for such changes.,9,Conditionally adding content has been very important to our organization. Prior to Windward, any conditional logic had to be maintained by developers and checked-in to our source control. These steps unnecessarily increased the time it took us to make small changes to reports and would often lead to delays in our reporting.,Designing templates in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel has been extremely beneficial to our organization. It allows us to make quick and easy changes to our reports, but it also helps create reports that are styled much better than our previous HTML to PDF reports. Using Microsoft tools is one of the primary reasons for Windward.,Replacing our previous HTML to PDF conversion with Windward was a bit more difficult than we had anticipated. We had to create a separate server for Windward's Restful Engine and we encountered some bugs integrating Windward with our Ruby-based application. Windward was very helpful with these bugs, but it did delay our implementation.,Windward Studios Report Designer ReviewWindward Studios is a vital component of our organization's flight planning service and gives us the capability to generate customized flight plans to pilots around the world.,Windward's Report Designer provides instant ease-of-use and a sense of familiarity by being integrated into Microsoft Word. The overall application is fairly user-friendly and intuitive by itself, but Windward Studios also offers a full array of user guides, training sessions, videos, step-by-step tutorials, and other resources that allow users to truly learn and understand the program in order to utilize its full capabilities. Windward Studios has truly unparalleled support. Every question or support request I've had has been responded to in a timely manner, and immediately addressed. Regardless of the complexity of the problem, they've been able to find a solution to generate the document output that I needed.,It would be greatly helpful if I were able to run two (or more) ForEach tags simultaneously. The POD feature is great for applying identical template sections across multiple documents, but there should be a simpler/easier way to update it globally across every template. The error messages could be more descriptive -- I sometimes get an error when generating the output and don't know exactly what's causing the problem.,10,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.,8,Customization is very important to my organization since our customers often have very specific preferences and/or regulatory requirements for how their data output is displayed. Aviation is rarely a one-size-fits-all industry, and having the capability to display the right information in the right way is vital to safe flight operations.,The main benefit thus far has been from the familiarity of using Word, Excel, and Powerpoint on a regular basis already. The Microsoft Office design and format capabilities far exceed the previous software application that we used to generate templates. With further integration in our system, we look forward to being able to offer our customers the benefits of creating templates within Word.,EcrionWindward OpinionIt's used across several departments. It allows us to design reports, including a big variety of data: Text, tables, images. It has a flexibility for design and helps people to export reports to Word and PDF.,Managing well the tinyMce fields content user friendly in the design allow the export to word and PDF and is plugged to word,Supporting HTML 5 format.,9,Provides more user satisfaction. Cost saving for our customers. Time saving and flexibility.,9,This is critical for our business and the most important is to generate automatic reports, and at the same time give the possibility to users to export to Word to add or customize without any loss of format.,This is the major benefit to us, exporting to Word and others.,There is no migration for replacement, we created all our reports from scratch.,Easy template building through WindwardWindward helps us to generate letters during the origination and servicing phase of a loan.,Easy integration: there is no steep learning curve to get started with WindWard. Template buiding is easy because of the Word integration.,More detailed documentation that addresses some very specific problems.,8,Reduced time-to-market for template changes because of the ease of use. No need for deep technical knowledge to perform the template changes,9,This feature is of no critical importance to us.,See usiblity rating.,In the total effort of replacing the existing "document generation" systems the actual replacement represents only a small portion of the problem. WindWard only helped wrt the easy (re)building of the different templates.,Get the same as the traditional, but much better!Windward Java Reporting Engine is a wonderful tool for reporting for Java applications. Currently I use it for the rapid elaboration of reports with special requirements, which allows to have a formidably fast engine to elaborate all type of reports without the wastage of time that involves the elaboration of reports in other engines more generalized in Java.,Fast and direct report engine, using friendly templates through an add-in for Microsoft Word. Adequate support and documentation to ensure a quick integration Your template designers dont need to learn Java at all. They can work through Microsoft Office,The learning curve can be a nuisance, considering that currently Jaspers is the antonomic engine for Java There is a price (not so expensive) so yeah thats always a cons. Many customers currently use Jaspers, so migration can become a point to consider,8,TIBCO Jaspersoft and SAP Crystal Reports,TIBCO Jaspersoft, Pentaho, RESTful Reporting Engine,8,8For native Office output, AutoTag really deliversWe use AutoTag designer to build reports for our customers to use internally and with their own customers. It is one of several report design tools currently in use, and we selected AutoTag specifically for its native Microsoft Office output for which there simply is no comparison against our other tools, which technically create Office-type output (RTF, DOCX, etc.) but not in formats that are easy for our customers to adapt and modify after the reports are generated. AutoTag output behaves exactly like Office documents because they are Office documents. Certainly this isn't the answer for every reporting scenario, but when native Office output is required, AutoTag delivers exactly that.,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.,Limited in terms of customizability -- this is a double-edged sword. Other report tools we use support anything from limited to incredibly complex JavaScript, for example, and we often use a combination of JavaScript and complex queries to pass and manipulate data. AutoTag can do some of this, but it wouldn't be our go-to solution for complex reporting. Limited drag and drop -- while you can easily create tables with drag and drop, you can't drag and drop individual fields, which really isn't intuitive,8,Jaspersoft,10,2,JaspersoftWindWard in my sailsOne of the most important parts of our printing deliverables are audit reports. These reports go to both internal and external clients and are used in everything from order verification to marketing materials. Before AutoTag creating the reports involved a lot of manual data collection and editing. This was a time intensive, error prone, and frustrating process. WindWard's AutoTag report creation made it easy to recreate the reports into templates. Whenever we got stuck there was a Wiki based user guide and top notch tech support. The reports now take a fraction of the time to create and are finally consistent in layout and content. With the success of the report generation in our department we have been tasked to review and identify more reports that could benefit. THANK YOU WINDWARD.,AutoTag can easily be connected to virtually any data source. The wizard walks you through all the needed steps. This is very helpful in getting reports from multiple sources or departments. WindWard has put together a Wiki based user guide and has the best tech support I have ever worked with. For the rare occasions that we get stuck trying to convert a report the help is plentiful. AutoTag is built within the Office suite and is therefore able to leverage all the familiar features. This is very useful when you need to make reports useful and appealing.,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.,9,10,9AutoTag Template Designer ReviewAutoTag Template Designer is used across multiple departments in my organization. Our development team uses it to build and fix templates, and our product support team uses it for basic troubleshooting when clients are experiencing issues, or are looking for basic enhancements.,Using Microsoft Office capabilities to format templates. Integrating SQL queries into a template. Tagging specific datapoints to display from a SQL query. Conditional formatting.,Sometimes using foreach tags can be confusing.,5,This is the one!The AutoTag Template Designer is used between multiple departments, including the development, quality assurance, and support team. This allows anyone involved in the template process to be able to see exactly what is being added into any report at any time, without having to consult with another department and take away from their work.,Lets you easily pull in data points Allows you to validate a query before saving it to make sure that it works correctly Easy export to most common formats so you can test out your template with real-world data,When dealing with large queries, the system tends to slow down. Nested for each queries have issues validating,9,None,9,8New to AutoTag - it helps to have a strong Excel and SQL backgroundAutoTag Template Designer is currently being used within a couple different departments. It is designed in Dev Ops and used by people in accounting and also in the field by our brokers.,Allows for customization of existing templates Connections to several types of data sources Very intuitive in conjunction with the tutorials,Allow users to modify the Excel file while in the AutoTag editor. I find myself taking screen shots and referring to them.,9,,7,7User of Autotag Template DesignerAutotag Template Designer is being used across the entire company and by several departments that specialize in reporting. It's being used as a tool to create templates that run in conjunction with the software out company has created. It allows our company to [access] extra data being stored in our software and generate it into specific documents that our clients need.,The set up of the product is fairly easy as long as you have the right version and license key. It's also fairly easy to transfer licenses between users. Once you have the main queries down, the tagging of the template is fairly easy and you can reuse templates instead of starting from scratch each time. If you are having issues with a template or a tag type- the help documentation provided is helpful to provide examples. The webinars are also a good stepping stone to get knowledge quickly.,Sometimes the formatting within the Microsoft Word documents can be tricky. That's where most of the time comes from is making sure the tags don't mess up the formatting of the actual template itself. Error messages can be vague. For example if something is wrong with the query or a tag, it can be difficult to find the issue within the query or identify the offending tag easily. This means the whole template won't work because of one minor issue.,6,none,7,6Java Reporting Engine Review from Java DeveloperWe use Java Reporting Engine to capture and process data we receive from USD. The we return the data using a HTML format which is easy to view for analyst to judge the input data. This data is then integrated into our process to create our final product.,Flexibility. The ability to modify the reporting engine to what you are exactly looking for and what you expect back. Speed. Extremely quick page generation. Overall it leave a very small footprint and does not burden too much on our system.,I found the API documentation to be rather lacking and descriptive. Initial setup can be a little more complication due to the above confusing documentation.,8,,TIBCO Jaspersoft,9,7Windows, Linux, Mac, Anything that has Java

We use Windward Studios to automate a certain amount of mandatory/regulatory reports that need to be delivered and approved on tight deadlines.
Windward enables us to quickly provide robust and detailed data reports for our clients and regulators. Given that templates can be designed directly in Microsoft products, preparing templates becomes very easy with minimal coding. We are very happy with this product and use it company-wide.
  • User-friendly, amazing UI integrated into Microsoft products, no steep learning curve.
  • Generates large and complex reports at great speeds.
  • Windward has a great and very responsive support team. Every request or question will be answered in a timely manner.
  • Support for multiple data sources.
  • Lack of documentation regarding the Windward Java Reporting Engine (Linux implementation).
  • Error messages could be more elaborate/precise.
Our company produces lots of mandatory and regulatory reports which are large and complex. Our reports contain a lot of data which is stored in an Oracle Database. Windward allows us to easily use the data in the Oracle DB and produce those reports directly from MS Word. The data-source connector also supports Views and Oracle functions which makes the process even simpler/lighter.

We use Windward Studios to format critical text reports that are delivered to airplane cockpits.
  • The ease of using Microsoft Word to create templates is second to none. Most other template engines require a good degree of technical knowledge.
  • The feature where you can generate code previews through Microsoft Word is very convenient.
  • Windward support is very quick and helpful
  • Windward's PODs (partial templates) are very useful for multiple reports that contain common sections.
  • Maybe could improve the documentation, although Windward Studios support is always there. A lot of the links on Google to the documentation are obsolete.
Windward Studios is well suited for non-technical people to create templates.

Windward helps us to design templates for outgoing communication of our government clients. Designing templates requires zero technical knowledge and has been made very easy. By using Windward, we have saved a lot of development time for creating templates, by being able to directly get feedback from subject matter experts.
  • Design templates.
  • If/else logic, placeholders, repeating attributes, etc.
  • Microsoft Word integration.
  • Licensing is not always clear.
I would always recommend Windward unless cost is a major problem for the project.

We are an insurance and finance company, and we use Windward to generate documents like insurance declarations, certificates, etc.. Our business analysts use Windwards report design with Microsoft Office products to create templates for our source systems. We also purchased their RESTful API to integrate with multiple source systems and third-party software.
  • Windward report designer makes it very easy for our business analyst to create the report and/or document template needed for our business needs.
  • Windward RESTful report engine makes it easy for us to integrate with other systems.
  • Windward has excellent support, either with their wiki site or their support technicians.
  • When we first purchased Windward, their support for JSON data sources seemed to be lacking.
Windward has been great in creating templates for all areas of our company. In our Insurance department, we use it to create insurance declaration packets, certificates, etc. In our Claims department, we use it to create all kinds of reports and data extracts. We also use it to create all of our form applications as well.

It is being used by the Software Development team and it allows us to download data from tables with different formatting.
  • Looping logic.
  • Drag and drop coding.
  • Easy integration with Office.
  • Could do with more documentation.
  • More training videos.
  • More intermediate to advanced videos to understand the full capability of Windward.
It is suited for non-tech people who want to create templates that can be reused. It is less appropriate where a template isn't possible or if the user doesn't want to integrate with a third-party application and wants to code all the logic themselves to have more control and flexibility.

My company partners with Windward to deliver document generation solutions to numerous client organizations. I have recently worked on solutions that include loan documents for a lender, insurance letters for a medical auditor, and proposal generation for an insurer. The solutions range from generating one document at a time to using a web front end to build a custom selection of documents to combine into a single proposal.
  • It is very easy to get up and running to see it work.
  • There are numerous options for data sources.
  • Technical support is very responsive and helpful.
  • It would be very helpful if it was possible for tag logic to handle an array of data. Without it, the syntax can become very verbose when there are multiple logical conditions to check.
  • Most tags are only built to handle a single piece of data so it can be a little confusing when a query only appears to return 1 record.
Windward makes it very easy to pull data out of a wide variety of data sources in order to dynamically generate documents (forms, letters, etc) in any type of industry.

In our cloud-based software solutions for financial institutions, Baker Hill NextGen® and the Baker Hill Legacy solutions, we have integrated with the Windward Engine. Our clients use the Windward Designer to create their documents and upload them to our solution. Then we use the Windward Engine to produce those documents on demand. Our clients are very happy with their custom documents.
  • A document can be created in many different formats, like Word or Excel, and be output into many different formats, like PDF, Word, Excel.
  • The document is generated based on the data and the document template you provide. The template can have conditions to format what is shown based on the data, and still retain the powerful formatting of the platform like Microsoft Word.
  • Windward Support is very responsive when we reach out with questions or problems.
  • The documentation for the Wiki could use more examples of how to use the functions.
  • We tend not to upgrade very often. When we do upgrade there can be significant feature changes that necessitate template rework.
Windward Studios is well suited for documents into which you want to merge data.

We use Windward Reporting solutions to help with reporting needs. We wanted the ability to create dynamically generated content, but also allow non-technical individuals to be able to edit and maintain the static content within the report. Windward allows us the ability to provide data friendly reports to our client's and design them with our own branding and style to make them easy to read and review. We use Windward's solution for our whole organization.
  • Allow business users to modify and update report content without the need for engaging a software developer.
  • Create user-friendly, content-rich reports that help to support the dynamic data we wanted to present to the client.
  • We initially purchased Windward to help build reports related to disclosures to our clients. Windward was the perfect solution for solving this issue.
  • Some functions in Word related to graphics do not always translate when producing the Windward report. We have overcome these by tweaking the design of the report at times. This issue is more common on reports that have many graphics and complex layouts.
  • Some reports rendering to PDF to not render like the original report.
  • We have found it is important to stay current with upgrades. Sometimes a report would have to be reworked when moving up 3 o 4 version of the software.
Windward is a great reporting tool that provides a lot of flexibility. It is very helpful in production reports that have other static content mixed with dynamic content and are client facing. We may or may not use Windward on reports that are strictly data centered, as other tools are available for this use.

We have selected Windward Studios as our replacement for Oracle Reports. Finding a product that allowed users to easily change their own text and graphics content on correspondence was the main focus. With Windward Studios, users can use Microsoft Word to integrate their report templates with our database application to generate high-quality documents. With very high volume printing requirements, speed was also a critical factor. Windward Studios easily met our expectations. We are very pleased with this product.
  • Easily integrates MS Word templates with database tables or views.
  • Generates high-quality output at great speeds.
  • Produces output in several formats for a variety of uses.
  • We had difficulty loading the jar file for the Java engine in our Oracle database. Calling reports using the command line worked fine.
Windward Studios is perfect for maintaining letter or statement templates. It's easy for users to do this themselves, saving development time and costs. Generating tabular reports is probably better using other tools. We use Oracle Application Express as our development tool, and it does a better job for that.

We have embedded Windward Studios in our Loan Automation Solution and provided a document and report generation module with ease. Given that the design is totally done in MS Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint), we prepared the templates for 40+ legal agreements and 20+ reports within weeks with minimal coding.
  • Design documents and reports with MS Office (WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT). This can be done by the business and not only be the IT. Template maintenance, which is usually mostly on content, can be done solely by business users.
  • Insert tags and business logic within documents to show/hide paragraphs depending on data or user input.
  • Integrates easily with 3rd party applications and it can also be used as the document and report generation engine of your software solution.
  • It can pull data from multiple sources (SQL, XML, OData, etc).
  • Better and more updated documentation. There is a wealth of functionality and the knowledge base does not reveal this much. You must be very specific in what you are looking for.
  • Web service consumption besides OData to pull data from other systems directly into the template would have taken Windward to another level.
  • User support in European timezones. :-)
Windward Studios is best suited for document and report generation. Where the design of output is required, Windward Studios is a must.

Windward Studios is less suited where lots of input fields are required, such as for electronic forms. Windward is not a UI platform for data capturing. It is for presenting data.

We use the .NET Windward Reporting engine across several of our applications. It is our primary tool for generating sales proposals, automated presentations, orders, industry specification documents, and reports. The main reason we use Windward is the ability to not only design our reports right within MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, but also the reliable recreation of these same documents at runtime. We receive very detailed forms from our customers who want their data merged into an exact representation of that document, and Windward has reliably provided us with this functionality.
  • If you have an existing Word or Excel document that you need to populate with data, then Windward is the right product for this functionality. It will reliably recreate this document in the same format (.docx, .xlsx, .pptx) or in PDF (there are other formats as well but this is what we use primarily).
  • The use of office documents as report templates allow us to have non-technical people submit reports to us and then we have a report writer who can tag the document for use in Windward. All of this is done without any specific programming knowledge other than AutoTag which is pretty easy to use. This allows us to free up valuable programming resources for other tasks.
  • The flexibility of Windward Reports allows us to generate data sources that are formatted around our business logic knowing that we don't have to worry about some rigid data specifications or requirements from our reporting tool. However, our data is structured so we're able to pull it into AutoTag and get exactly what we need for our reporting requirements.
  • I know we have wanted some more robust features in the powerpoint presentations, but to be honest we haven't looked at the update in the last two versions. So, a criticism of this wouldn't be fair because I'm not up to date on their more current PPT offerings.
  • One of the issues we've had in the past is getting the licensing correct. The licensing structure is a bit strict and can be a little unwieldy at times. Once it's set up we don't ever have issues, but when upgrading or migrating servers we've had issues in the past, and if you have licensing issue it can shut down reporting on your server until it is resolved. I will say that their support team is responsive and has always helped us to work through our issues. If I were recommending Windward to someone I would mention our problems with licensing so they would pay specific when setting up their configuration, but it wouldn't keep me from recommending their services.
I don't know where it wouldn't be appropriate, I just know it works well for us. We've looked for other products that provide the same features that Windward does and I just don't think one exists.

Windward Studios was being used to create custom reporting for SaaS administrators clients. Both our administrators and our clients have different reporting needs and Windward allows each user to create and modify their own report templates based on their specific requirements. Windward reduces the time required for custom report creation and modification.
  • Windward handles multiple reporting template formats using tools people are already familiar with. Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel are particularly useful for us.
  • Windward has great technical support. Questions and issues are always answered in a timely manner.
  • Windward has multiple pricing options which were helpful for us in getting started.
  • I would like to see more organized and up to date documentation and videos for setup and training.
  • It depends on your particular setup and requirements, but our particular setup required a separate Windows server to run the Restful Engine. A cloud-based web-service that Windward maintains would be preferred.
  • While Windward's Microsoft based tools are great, they can be a bit intimidating to non-programmers at first glance.
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.

Windward Studios is a vital component of our organization's flight planning service and gives us the capability to generate customized flight plans to pilots around the world.
  • Windward's Report Designer provides instant ease-of-use and a sense of familiarity by being integrated into Microsoft Word.
  • The overall application is fairly user-friendly and intuitive by itself, but Windward Studios also offers a full array of user guides, training sessions, videos, step-by-step tutorials, and other resources that allow users to truly learn and understand the program in order to utilize its full capabilities.
  • Windward Studios has truly unparalleled support. Every question or support request I've had has been responded to in a timely manner, and immediately addressed. Regardless of the complexity of the problem, they've been able to find a solution to generate the document output that I needed.
  • It would be greatly helpful if I were able to run two (or more) ForEach tags simultaneously.
  • The POD feature is great for applying identical template sections across multiple documents, but there should be a simpler/easier way to update it globally across every template.
  • The error messages could be more descriptive -- I sometimes get an error when generating the output and don't know exactly what's causing the problem.
Windward Studios would be well-suited for creating any kind of dynamic documents, letters, or forms that can utilize the design layouts and capabilities of the Microsoft Office applications.

Windward Java Reporting Engine is a wonderful tool for reporting for Java applications. Currently I use it for the rapid elaboration of reports with special requirements, which allows to have a formidably fast engine to elaborate all type of reports without the wastage of time that involves the elaboration of reports in other engines more generalized in Java.
  • Fast and direct report engine, using friendly templates through an add-in for Microsoft Word.
  • Adequate support and documentation to ensure a quick integration
  • Your template designers dont need to learn Java at all. They can work through Microsoft Office
  • The learning curve can be a nuisance, considering that currently Jaspers is the antonomic engine for Java
  • There is a price (not so expensive) so yeah thats always a cons.
  • Many customers currently use Jaspers, so migration can become a point to consider
If the project is currently new and has no business interfaces to deal with other systems areas, developing at WindWard can greatly ease development costs. On the other hand, where a culture of using other reporting tools already exists, change would probably not be the viable option for me and my people.

We use AutoTag designer to build reports for our customers to use internally and with their own customers. It is one of several report design tools currently in use, and we selected AutoTag specifically for its native Microsoft Office output for which there simply is no comparison against our other tools, which technically create Office-type output (RTF, DOCX, etc.) but not in formats that are easy for our customers to adapt and modify after the reports are generated. AutoTag output behaves exactly like Office documents because they are Office documents. Certainly this isn't the answer for every reporting scenario, but when native Office output is required, AutoTag delivers exactly that.
  • 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.
  • Limited in terms of customizability -- this is a double-edged sword. Other report tools we use support anything from limited to incredibly complex JavaScript, for example, and we often use a combination of JavaScript and complex queries to pass and manipulate data. AutoTag can do some of this, but it wouldn't be our go-to solution for complex reporting.
  • Limited drag and drop -- while you can easily create tables with drag and drop, you can't drag and drop individual fields, which really isn't intuitive
AutoTag is a brilliant solution for less complex reports where native Microsoft Office output is required. This is where AutoTag really shines. It's also appropriate in situations where our customers want to develop and maintain their own reports but don't necessarily want to commit an experienced data person or report developer to do the work. For complex report requirements that need JavaScript or considerable data manipulation inside the report templates, we will continue to look at other tools in our kit.

One of the most important parts of our printing deliverables are audit reports. These reports go to both internal and external clients and are used in everything from order verification to marketing materials. Before AutoTag creating the reports involved a lot of manual data collection and editing. This was a time intensive, error prone, and frustrating process. WindWard's AutoTag report creation made it easy to recreate the reports into templates. Whenever we got stuck there was a Wiki based user guide and top notch tech support. The reports now take a fraction of the time to create and are finally consistent in layout and content. With the success of the report generation in our department we have been tasked to review and identify more reports that could benefit. THANK YOU WINDWARD.
  • AutoTag can easily be connected to virtually any data source. The wizard walks you through all the needed steps. This is very helpful in getting reports from multiple sources or departments.
  • WindWard has put together a Wiki based user guide and has the best tech support I have ever worked with. For the rare occasions that we get stuck trying to convert a report the help is plentiful.
  • AutoTag is built within the Office suite and is therefore able to leverage all the familiar features. This is very useful when you need to make reports useful and appealing.
  • 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.
AutoTag has a feature called POD. With PODs you are able to save sections of reports to reuse elsewhere. If your reports have several pieces that are common between several reports, or reused many times in the same report, making a POD is perfect. Once made the POD can be dragged and dropped into any report for instant use. PODs are not limited to just tags, we have several just for document styles and database connections. This makes adding a new datasource very simple.

AutoTag Template Designer is used across multiple departments in my organization. Our development team uses it to build and fix templates, and our product support team uses it for basic troubleshooting when clients are experiencing issues, or are looking for basic enhancements.
  • Using Microsoft Office capabilities to format templates.
  • Integrating SQL queries into a template.
  • Tagging specific datapoints to display from a SQL query.
  • Conditional formatting.
  • Sometimes using foreach tags can be confusing.
AutoTag Template Designer is well suited to create a template that uses basic concepts (clear locations to insert tags). It is a little more complicated to use if needed for more complex situations that include more logic than just inserting x data point to this tag.

The AutoTag Template Designer is used between multiple departments, including the development, quality assurance, and support team. This allows anyone involved in the template process to be able to see exactly what is being added into any report at any time, without having to consult with another department and take away from their work.
  • Lets you easily pull in data points
  • Allows you to validate a query before saving it to make sure that it works correctly
  • Easy export to most common formats so you can test out your template with real-world data
  • When dealing with large queries, the system tends to slow down.
  • Nested for each queries have issues validating
As long as the user has at least a small background in using any kind of SQL commands, this should be near effortless for them. Windward's support page on their website has an immense amount of knowledge available for free, and has saved me from pulling my hair out several times.

Autotag Template Designer is being used across the entire company and by several departments that specialize in reporting. It's being used as a tool to create templates that run in conjunction with the software out company has created. It allows our company to [access] extra data being stored in our software and generate it into specific documents that our clients need.
  • The set up of the product is fairly easy as long as you have the right version and license key. It's also fairly easy to transfer licenses between users.
  • Once you have the main queries down, the tagging of the template is fairly easy and you can reuse templates instead of starting from scratch each time.
  • If you are having issues with a template or a tag type- the help documentation provided is helpful to provide examples. The webinars are also a good stepping stone to get knowledge quickly.
  • Sometimes the formatting within the Microsoft Word documents can be tricky. That's where most of the time comes from is making sure the tags don't mess up the formatting of the actual template itself.
  • Error messages can be vague. For example if something is wrong with the query or a tag, it can be difficult to find the issue within the query or identify the offending tag easily. This means the whole template won't work because of one minor issue.
If the end users are going to be proficient in SQL, then they are already light years ahead. Most of the time learning the product comes from figuring out the queries. After that, tags are fairly easy! It's great for clients that don't know SQL too that will just need the initial template built and will update the wording or static text.

We use Java Reporting Engine to capture and process data we receive from USD. The we return the data using a HTML format which is easy to view for analyst to judge the input data. This data is then integrated into our process to create our final product.
  • Flexibility. The ability to modify the reporting engine to what you are exactly looking for and what you expect back.
  • Speed. Extremely quick page generation.
  • Overall it leave a very small footprint and does not burden too much on our system.
  • I found the API documentation to be rather lacking and descriptive.
  • Initial setup can be a little more complication due to the above confusing documentation.
For us it is well suited to retrieve data from our sql database [to] create a report of the data type, information, and attributes, format this report and then send it over to an Analyst who can go over the exact change that has taken place when a new batch of USD has come in.
