We ended up going with Windward for the level of support we got from them during our proof of concept.
The engine being able to sit inside of our firewall is the most important feature.
The design tool, with all of its features and sample output fidelity tests, and being able to work with JSON data and output PDF and HTML, were also both crucial.
The ability for users to have design and layout control is also critically important. Without this ability, procuring report designs would represent a huge bottleneck. Report design tools also enable upsell opportunities for customized reports, with quick turnaround times.
AutoTag is valuable because it integrates with MS Word and makes it easy for our users to create template documents and reports. It allows our users to design the templates based on differing needs.
We can develop any report at least five times faster.​
The Windward solution was very fast to rollout, and it is proven.
