A common problem for Windward customers is finding more advanced formatting support than is provided by most document automation solutions available today. Formatting support for document templating tools is so limited that some solutions even brag about their support for simple template formatting, like tables. We believe in advanced formatting support that extends well beyond simple tables. Here at Windward even very complex template formatting is a breeze with our software.
Windward Designer is the number one document automation tool for designing documents with complex formatting. Designer is an add-in to Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) that allows the user to leverage all of the document formatting tools provided its templates. This simple functionality is the key for our customers to resolve their formatting restrictions. Document formatting like tables, which can be challenging in alternative template design tools, are intuitive in the Microsoft Office environment. If you can do it in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, you can do it in your document automation templates with Windward.
Windward customers find that with Designer, they can create templates that exceed their wildest dreams. Not only is our template formatting best-in-class, but our customers get pixel-perfect output to DOCX, PDF, XLSX, PPTX, HTML, and more. Finally, this advanced template formatting does not come at the cost of a developer’s time. On the contrary, Designer is easy to use by virtue of being a Microsoft Office plugin. All of the complex formatting is handled in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint—tools already second nature to the majority of workers today. Windward helps template developers save valuable time while delivering templates significantly better than what other solutions offer.
