"Integrating the .NET Engine was a no-brainer. We just dropped the ASP code example that Windward provided into our app, tweaked the code in four places, and the software was up and running."
Tom Nazelli, president and CEO of ArtsVision
"We'd like to reiterate that Windward as an agency has been great to work with. They've been really responsive."
Mark Knutson, Law Enforcement Support Agency (LESA)

Martin Stewart, Director of Strategy, Axe Group Pty Ltd.
"Windward is the best solution available for Presentation and On-Demand Reporting because of its small footprint. Other solutions have too large of a footprint to generate the speed of reporting that Windward is able to do."
Ethan Kayes, Aon Hewitt
"We have hundreds of templates and generate thousands of documents. It is all automated. It works great when you need to do this as part of a greater business process. I would highly recommend this product."
Jim Schwan, CIO, Preferred Credit Incorporation
"We did with Windward in about 8 hours what it took us 3-4 weeks to do with JasperReports - that's downright impressive."
Jon Charnas, WitchLake
"Awesome product. Highly integrated XML-SAX-Parsed RTF mapping along with iText Sharp generated awesome output. It's a must-try for persons looking for a solution which can dynamically generate extremely complex PDFs as an output."
Amit Kumar Das, Systems Engineer, Tata Consultancy Services
"If you need to generate multi-page PDF documents in fractions of a second based on simply tagged word documents and some data to fill in the blanks then these are the people to talk to. Windward Reports does much more - but even for this it is worth the cost."
Jason G , CTO, White Clarke Group
"Thank goodness for Windward. We had been wasting hundreds of hours hand coding report templates because of stringent layout requirements. Windward automates the process and helps us get our customers the data they need."
Tom Nazelli, president and CEO of ArtsVision
"The speed of design is definitely saving us time compared to JasperReports."
Arshan Dabirsiaghi, Application Security Engineer, Aspect Security

"The key for us is allowing our non-developer, those who understand and know the content, to create reports. It makes the process of report building much simpler."
John Humphrey, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, July Business Services
"Overall, we've been able to streamline our reporting component, and those benefits in turn are passed along to our customers. Windward Reports has helped us strengthen our position as the top project logistics software developer in the world."
Chuck Hanebuth, HAL, Inc.
"Windward is the core piece that makes this happen. I'm a non-programmer, and I was able to write this application. Windward is the solution that allowed me to come in and hit our budget right on the money."
Arland Head, Director of IT, LeBlanc's Food Stores
"There was tremendous time savings in being able to take the layouts of the old templates and just have to make minor hooks into Windward data sources and just replace the Word Form fields we were using with Windward tags. The time savings garnered by not having to have someone redo the more complicated table layouts was huge."
David Boodey, RepLink
"Compared to systems where both layout and data must be coded, as we did before, the process of creating a report is at least 5 times faster."
Michael Bjerregaard Pedersen, Backbone Digital Systems
"Windward is by far the best tool we saw!"
Anders Brunland, Manager of Web & Integration, OBOS
"In the set up we had a few questions on some very detailed modifications and the customer service was amazing!!!! It was very easy and turn around time on customer request was the best we have experienced."
Ted Peters, COO, ButtonIntel
