With Windward Designer, customers use Windward Tags as placeholders for their data instead of having to copy and paste new data into existing documentation.
The speed of technological change can be hard to keep up with today. From year to year, technologies grow obsolete as companies continues to strive for efficiencies. On the flip side, some antiquated practices continue to thrive, even though better tools exist that could completely change the way certain tasks are handled.
One example? Tediously copying and pasting new data into an existing document. Unfortunately, companies have established copy/paste as manual workflow to populate documents with data. The process is extremely time consuming, requiring either a master template to be manually filled with data, or replacing data from an older document with data intended for the new one. Manual tasks like these not only cost time, but ensure that mistakes are made easily and are difficult to catch. Forgetting to copy data into the template can mean data loss, or even worse, users could receive a document with a mix of data intended for another individual. Some organizations might still make the decision to designate an individual to do this work, knowing that they will sacrifice time and quality, but the effort to do this manual document generation is not scalable, and as the organization grows, a new solution becomes necessary.
And we have a solution for these companies: Windward. In its most basic form, document generation is the automation of the process of copy/pasting new data into a pre-existing document. In Windward Designer, users design a template for their output document. The template document has static formatting and logic that create consistent output results across many different records of data. Everything that previously needed data copy/pasted is automated by Windward Tags. Once you’re done designing your template, output the template with the Windward Engine to generate a pixel-perfect output document with all of your data already populated.
For those who are ready to ditch the copy/paste era and join the document automation revolution, our product comes in three styles all compatible with almost every coding language. For users who are looking to implement document automation without an application to embed into, Windward Solo is a standalone solution that gives users the power of document automation without writing a single line of code.
