The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. For Views, Comparisons, Reviews, and Followers the score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score of 17.5 points. Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 17.5% (weighting factor) * 80% = 14. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 30 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is most valuable?

Without doubt, the most valuable feature is the ability to operate and work within Microsoft Word, our default word editing program. When the rest of the organization is dealing with templates and Word format, it's nice to be able to use that... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We're now live with one instance of generating documents, we're committed, and we've got the architecture and infrastructure to add more templates and migrate our old ones. We didn't realize it initially, but once we setup up our platform... more»

What needs improvement?

I've shared with Docmosis a list of improvements they could make, and they've been very customer-centric and responsive. They don't always deliver what we ask, but they're very conscientious about responding to us. We have some pretty onerous... more»

VP Engineering at LeaseAccelerator

What is most valuable?

Auditability is a huge part of what we do. Part of that is generating an auditable track record that documents any decisions made along the way. All of the audit documents, all of the competitive sourcing documents, such as RFP, lease versus buy, proposals, and in some cases contract documents are generated out of LeaseAccelerator using Docmosis. The number one... more»

What needs improvement?

We've already briefly spoken with Docmosis, and we'll be pursuing this more - we are looking to take our intra-application monitoring to the next level. Really, we've embraced the DevOps philosophy and are trying to improve the monitoring, so it's not just your traditional up/down type monitoring but it's a more holistic system load, degeneration – where it may... more»

How has it helped my organization?

From an organizational standpoint, it's reduced our need for a developer to be involved in delivering customer reports for customers, so we don't need our development team, engineers, and software developers to customize reports for customers. It lowers cost and allows us to deliver customized reports faster than we could before.

What needs improvement?

It's still a bit complex to develop reports and because of that complexity, there are often mistakes that get made. If we get better debugging tools and better diagnostic tools, developing reports would be faster. That process is a bit slow right now.

It does a beautiful job of taking Word docs and turning them into PDFs with merged fields. That's really what we use it for.

How has it helped my organization?

This is the cornerstone of our office's functionality, where people can create templates, create an offer template, and then a recruiter can just go into a couple of fields and they have a beautiful offer letter. It's really not just for our... more»

Right now, the product can be a little finicky with background images, sort of how the tabs work when you try to underline something. Sometimes that won't get reproduced, but those are pretty minuscule cases. I think the biggest thing that we... more»

What is most valuable?

The template designer is by far the best feature within Windward Autotag. You build the reports in the Microsoft Applications that you already know, and simply add tags which draw the data in where you need it. The learning curve is very low... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Previously we were running reports from SQL Queries and formatting the outputs in Powerpoint Presentations, Word Documents or Excel Spreadsheets. Due to large growth our reporting needs both externally and internally were taking too much time... more»

What needs improvement?

As Autotag constantly upgrades it does more post processing on the documents. It is still lightning fast for most reporting needs, however for some of the more complex reporting we have noticed a small slow down over previous versions.

Autotag can be a little confusing for new users, however doing the training webinars will get them on their feet in no time.

What do you think of Windward?

Valuable Features The ability for it to create static reports, which mostly replicate Word and Excel. • Improvements to My Organization A part of our business is to produce static report which we give to our clients. This product serves this purpose very well. • Room for Improvement The generation of PDF/Excel reports needs to replicate Word/Excel more closely with less required workarounds. • Use of Solution We have been using this product for 2 years. • Deployment Issues When we first started using it we did - however, that was partly due to issues at our end. • Stability Issues Sometimes automated reports don't generate - seems to be completely random. • Scalability Issues Yes, unfortunately as Word/Excel are used to generate the reports, it suffers...

What do you think of Windward?

Valuable Features: Ability to harness all the power of standard Office software (Word & Excel) to produce rich reports while at the same time easily connecting to my data sources. Very visual way of finding and linking data. Simple integration with .net & Java. • Improvements to My Organization: We are able to move report generation from the developer workload and give to less technical staff. • Room for Improvement: Initial learning curve seems steep as first - but it does 'click' into place after viewing a few of the free Webinars that Windward offer.
