Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Windward is very expensive when the volume of documents being generated is low and it is cheap when the volume is high.We negotiated our prices many years ago, and while they go up a little bit here and there, they've been pretty steady.The cost is reasonable.The pricing is fair. The way that they have it priced is the Windward Designer has a price that's associated with it. Then, depending on the number of cores that you're looking for, that is the price that you pay. The more cores that you want, the more expensive it is.I'm starting to hear clients squeal about the price of their software. The cost of the software has gone up.The pricing is very reasonable for what it provides. The report builder is about one grand per user... We are paying for a support contract, which is 20 percent of the price, but because the licenses are perpetual, I think the pricing is very reasonable.Pricing is something I complain about. Production pricing is okay, but for a testing environment the pricing looks a bit high to me.From my experience in this field, the product is reasonably priced, at least with the RESTful engine implementation. It's definitely not a cheap option. People say, "That's a fair amount of money to pay for a document generation tool." At the same time, you do get good functionality and the support is good.
