Windward Studios Review
We can develop any report at least five times faster

Primary Use Case

Our primary use case is for reporting.

MySQL is our source on the cloud.

Improvements to My Organization

We can develop any report at least five times faster.

We only have four templates right now. We are planning to create 40 more. Most of our reports are operational reports. 

Output performance is very important. We output PDF and Word formats. We will be using Excel format soon.

Valuable Features

PDF and Word reports are so easy to create.

It is very important for users to have design and layout control. We create a lot of custom reports for our customers, so flexible and ease of use are critical.

Room for Improvement

AutoTag needs to be web-based, so our customers can create reports from our web.

Use of Solution

Less than one year.

Stability Issues

Most of the issues are our fault because we did not understand the products.

Scalability Issues

Not yet.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The usually the response is within one hour. The technical support will WebEx with you. I rate them as a 10 out of 10.

Previous Solutions

We used a custom solution. A custom solution needs a lot of work.

Initial Setup

It took us a week to get everything set up. It was because we were busy and could not focus on it. 

Implementation Team

Windward technical support was helpful.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

They are fair and flexible. They are willing to work with your current architecture to make sure you have the best deal.

Other Solutions Considered

We evaluated a lot of other options, but this is the best for our architecture and the easiest to integrate with our app.

The Windward solution was very fast to rollout, and it is proven. A custom solution costs a lot of money to build.

Other Advice

You will need a Windows machine to install AutoTag. AutoTag is the key. Once it is setup, your reports will be running without any issues.
