Windward Studios Pricing, License Cost and Setup

Jim Aiken
SVP, Product Development and Quality Assurance at a tech vendor with 11-50 employees
This is tough to say, because we have a contract with them, where we we sell it for use with our application only, in a package bundle. We're reselling it to our clients, so I can't really comment on what they might sell to somebody that was going to use it in-house. We negotiated our prices many years ago, and while they go up a little bit here and there, they've been pretty steady. View full review »

For what you're getting, it's an extremely good value. I implemented, I believe they call it a single-core license. It's working just fine for me. I can see where, at some point, I'm going to want to upgrade and invest in a multi-core license, because I want to expand this into other product offerings, because it does such a good job.

I can't advise anybody about pricing and licensing, but it was competitive. We went and looked at the market and, for us, it met our requirements. A lot of things we did look at were all volume-based, so it was a case of you buy a license to generate this many reports a year, and that's not something that I'm particularly interested in because it doesn't give you any idea - if we have future growth, or if we have a lean year - for budgeting reasons it's more difficult. With Windward it's a straight out license fee, whether we generate one page or we generate a million, it makes no difference. View full review »

The ability for Windward to be licensed as a black-box and to be retained in our servers behind our firewall was an absolute must in our business model. Without this, licensing would not be possible. View full review »

It is absolutely worth the value. They have flexibility, depending on what you're looking for from a buying standpoint. The current pricing models are quite flexible, with the ability to use it on an as-needed basis, or to get a perpetual license that covers a customer that might have extensive needs. I think it's pretty good. View full review »

IT implementation consultant at a consultancy with 51-200 employees
We only started really thinking about the licensing and pricing well after the proof of concept was successful. If we had started to take this into consideration earlier, we might have made different decisions, including technically. View full review »

CapEx fits our requirements, OpEx is higher due to the 20% service and maintenance cost, where we normally pay 15%. View full review »
They are fair and flexible. They are willing to work with your current architecture to make sure you have the best deal. View full review »
