Report automation made easy

Windward's Designer (AutoTag) is directly integrated into Microsoft product making the creation of templates very user-friendly. Once parameters and data-sources are defined, AutoTag can easily be used by non-programmers for designing large or complex reports. They also have a range of detailed documentation available and a help menu integrated into the tool, making it even easier.

The initial code to call the report engine is pretty standard. Windward is very black box. Once you set up a simple code library for passing in datasources, templates, and parameters, you can call it throughout your application very easily. And AutoTag can be used by non-programmers for designing reports as long as the user is provided with a reliable copy of the expected data source.

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.

Windward's usability is very good for technical users. The buttons and controls are well placed within Microsoft Office and once you understand the basics, you can quickly make powerful reports. However, understanding the database schema is required and this can limit the average user's ability to make substantial edits to reports or the data that gets populated into them.

The Windward Studios Report Designer's basic features and ease of use allow anyone to create basic templates within no time. Learning the more complex features and capabilities does take additional effort with reading through the training materials, and also having a good understanding of the Microsoft Office functions.
