Previous Solutions

We did use a different solution and we switched because Windward offered better maintenance and upgrade path.

Initial Setup

The workstation deployment and license allocation was a pain, but the server component was easy. A salesman told us we could have concurrent usage license, that is also how the protection seems to work. Then they decided we could only buy named user licenses. Most of our user community used the product quite infrequently so we were far from impressed.

Implementation Team

We implemented it in-house.


Not easy to calculate, it replaced something that was written in house and was proving to be a pain to keep current.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

40 licenses for Autotag, plus a server and annual maintenance.

Other Solutions Considered

No other options were evaluated.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
