OEMs, ISVs, ASPs and Windward

Interested in embedding Windward into your own software application? Let’s talk.

Your Customers Deserve the Best

While reporting and document generation may be one of the last steps your customers take when using your software, it’s also (1) the most tangible representation of your product, and (2) the last and strongest impression they’ll have of your product. Even the best user interface can’t salvage the poor impression left by rigid, complicated, and unreadable documents.

Whether you consider yourself an OEM, ISV, ASP or just “packaged software,” your users and customers demand the best possible reporting and document generation functionality, and Windward can help deliver exactly that.

That’s why you’re here, right?

How Windward Works

It’s as easy as embed, design, and deliver. The Windward Embedded Solution helps you add advanced reporting and document generation functionality into your new or existing software application. You can think of it as a simple series of complementary, inter-connected tools:

EMBED
It all starts when you integrate the Windward Java, .NET, and RESTful engines into your product codebase, in as few as 14 lines of code. That means more time for testing, lower development costs and faster time to market for your product.

DESIGN
Non-developers and business analysts then apply the AutoTag design tool to create beautiful report templates in Microsoft® Office®, a tool they already know, and to link those templates to one or more data sources. Template design is moved to the end business user and no longer interrupts or delays the time developers need to work on actual code.

DELIVER
Finally, your end users can run and distribute those reports when and where they want, in widely used and widely accepted formats. Revisions in Office are simple and quick.

What makes Windward a standout solution? You get:

  1. Template design without formatting restrictions
  2. Template creation by the end user, not the developer
  3. Rapid revision time when documents and reports need updating
  4. Faster time to market due to simplified coding and testing
  5. Lowered development costs through customized licensing and A+ support
