Make Your Reports Even Better with Windward and PowerPoint
In most business organizations,reporting is often overlooked but it is an essential aspect to keep the whole business afloat. This is why many businesses try to maintain a steady, easy, and fast process when it comes to reports and document generation and with the help of Windward you can create reports in MS PowerPoint format.
We all know PowerPoint is one of the best platforms to use when you are presenting a business concept or a monthly report for a large audience. However, there are times when its features are quite limited. Also, there are instances when the data that we need is from multiple sources that is not supported by your native applications.
Is this the end?
Windward to the Rescue
The good news is that there is a simple but powerful tool that can provide you with amazing reports —introducing Windward, the best solution for all your document and reporting generation needs.
The best part — Windward does not act as an individual or alien platform.It is more like a plugin that can be integrated into any application. When it is connected with MS Office Suite which includes PowerPoint, it gets its own ribbon in PowerPoint’s platform and environment with additional features to create better PPTX reports.
How It Works?
It is really simple. If you have data that is housed in databases like XML, JSON,SQL, and other common databases, Windward can pull that up and display it in MS PowerPoint format. You can then work in PowerPoint to add visual elements and edit the data to make it more presentable.
One of the most obvious benefits of this process is that many of us are already familiar with PowerPoint. We use it almost every day and Windward has just made it easier. This means that we do not need to worry about the complexities of databases like SQL and XML but concentrate on providing a better and more comprehensive look to the report that anyone in the organization can understand.
This can also be beneficial for developers. Since databases are mainly part of their jurisdiction, they are sometimes expected to deal with the reporting. With Windward’s solution, they can pass the task along to literally anyone in the organization who knows how to run MS Office Because of this, they can concentrate more on improving the codes of the business systems.
Finally,one of the most amazing things that Windward can do is by enabling users to pull up data from different sources and combine them in a single file! This means that you can save time from creating multiple reports and you can just easily export the necessary data from multiple sources and design as if you are just doing a single report.
Many businesses prefer their reports to be in the PPTX format, which is the output of PowerPoint. Here are several reasons why you might want to consider creating your reports in PowerPoint too.
- Visual Appeal: PowerPoint enables you to include multiple media in the form of images and charts so thereport is easier to digest.
- Collaboration: Like any application in MS Office, PowerPoint allows you and your team to collaborate and add, edit, or change details in the report.
- EasySharing: If your company is implementing a cloud server, making your PPTX presentation available online is easy!
