“Windward is the best solution available for Presentation and On-Demand Reporting because of its small footprint. Other solutions have too large of a footprint to generate the speed of reporting that Windward is able to do.”

– Ethan Kayes, Aon Hewitt

“Windward is the core piece that makes this happen. I’m a non-programmer, and I was able to write this application. Windward is the solution that allowed me to come in and hit our budget right on the money.”

– Arland Head, Director of IT, LeBlanc’s Food Stores

“We bought White Clarke’s CALMS as our Loan Origination System, and it uses Windward to produce legal documents. With our previous system, we could not add or change documents, and so had to live with whatever we had, or devise a Word template. Windward is an enabler for us.”

Wayne Cook, Community Savings Bank

“Unlike Crystal Reports, with Windward we can create some really sexy reports that are visually pleasing for the viewer.”

Steve Zacharidis, InfoComp

“Before using Windward, I spent half my time designing and scripting reports to meet the bank’s requirements. With Windward, we can lay out a report in Word and get immediate approval from the client.”

-S.S. Mohanty, Nucleus Software

“Windward allows us to better serve our customers by providing them with the precise reports they need to manage their business.”
-Aaron Hutchinson, President, iCrop Trak

“Overall [Windward] provided a great advantage to us in this competitive landscape.”

“Clients tell us changes they can now do in 10 minutes would have cost $50,000 or more with their previous solution.”

Martin Stewart, Director of Strategy, Axe Group Pty Ltd.

“The speed of design is definitely saving us time compared to JasperReports.”
-Arshan Dabirsiaghi, Application Security Engineer, Aspect Security

“I recommend this product. AutoTag is a flexible and user-friendly system.”

“There was tremendous time savings in being able to take the layouts of the old templates and just have to make minor hooks into Windward data sources and just replace the Word Form fields we were using with Windward tags. The time savings garnered by not having to have someone redo the more complicated table layouts was huge.”

– David Boodey, RepLink

– Kevin McCormack, Technology Solutions Manager, Conexus Credit Union

“The key for us is allowing our non-developers – those who understand and know the content – to create reports. It makes the process of report building much simpler.”

– John Humphrey, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, July Business Services

“If you need to generate multi-page PDF documents in fractions of a second based on simply tagged word documents and some data to fill in the blanks then these are the people to talk to. Windward Reports does much more – but even for this it is worth the cost.”

– Jason G , CTO, White Clarke Group

“Thank goodness for Windward. We had been wasting hundreds of hours hand coding report templates because of stringent layout requirements. Windward automates the process and helps us get our customers the data they need.”

“Plus, integrating the .NET Engine was a no-brainer. We just dropped the ASP code example that Windward provided into our app, tweaked the code in four places, and the software was up and running.”

– Tom Nazelli, president and CEO of ArtsVision

“Customer service is outstanding. Windward Reports does just what we need it to do.”

– Evelyn Gray, RepLink
