Windward Maestro for Jira

Jira is renowned for being one of the most powerful project management tools in the world. Now, Windward Studios is pairing with Jira to bring our document automation solutions to your project management process—offering you the best of both capabilities, with Windward Maestro for Jira!

Automate Customized Documents with Windward Maestro for Jira

Jira is an excellent tool for prioritization, collaboration, project management, and providing basic data reports to boost team performance. Although Jira supports many reports and graphs in its portal, customers have very little if any support for creating custom reports specific to their needs, and it can be difficult to export data. Luckily, Windward has a solution that will dramatically change the way Jira users automate.

Windward Maestro for Jira helps customize your data in a professional format by streamlining your data exporting process and providing stunning design capabilities. Instead of limiting your workflow to Jira’s premade reports, you can customize the look of your reports with Windward Maestro.You can also easily connect an Excel sheet to your Jira data and create the exact output report you desire. You no longer have to manually export all of the data to Excel and re-organize it by hand.

For example, agile development teams have retrospectives and other agile ceremonies that require up-to-date statuses on Jira tickets. In Windward Maestro for Jira, you can custom populate templates every two weeks and even schedule output for a later date. Composing data in Word and Excel for Jira is a breeze with Windward’s document automation software.

How to Use Windward Maestro for Jira

With Windward Maestro for Jira, you can create the Jira report you want in Word or Excel, and schedule it to output on your agile schedule. Simply install Windward as an add-on to MS Office, and from there you can design to your heart’s desire. When you export your data from Jira, Windward merges it with your templates, automating your output process.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Before using Windward, we were using another document creation tool and this old tool required some very specific, technical, XSLT knowledge, which was scarce. We didn't have a lot of people with this knowledge and it's also scarce in the market. By changing to Windward, the whole technical challenge of creating a document has been eliminated. Read more...

I don't have metrics, but I can say that some of our largest clients have on the order of 1,000,000 accounts and they are generating hundreds and hundreds of letters every day using Windward. I have never seen any problems on the performance side. It's not crashing or not performing on high volume. I can't recall any scenario where a client complained that Windward was crashing.

They've been very good. They're very prompt and fast. We've been using it for quite a while now, so at times, I've even talked to the president or the CEO, whenever we've needed to get an extra boost, because we've needed something a little more quickly. But their support has been awesome. Read more...

On a scale on one to ten, one being the worst and ten being the best, Windward is a 12. They're off the scale. I come from the software industry. I've worked for three software companies in my life, so I'm not a fan-girl of software. I'm more critical of software than the average person. When I tell you this is a good software application, take it to the bank. This is a great software application. Read more...

We decided to integrate Windward so closely with our next-gen product, in part, because we've had years of success with it in the field. It's been proven to deliver exactly what we want and exactly what we'd expect out of a solution. That was the biggest driver for us. It just flat out delivers.

We've been able to save our clients between 20 and 40 percent of their time in developing these documents. They're able to build them once, make the modifications they need to, if they have to, and they're consistent. It's been a really positive experience for them. I had one client who said they're seeing upwards of 60 percent improvement in terms of the time and effort needed to generate the documents that they need to for their clients. Read more...

Reporting 시스템을 처음 사용하는 입장입니다. 일단 첫 번째로, 익숙해 지는 데까지 걸리는 시간이 짧다는 점이 가장 마음에 듭니다. 다음으로 간단한 인터페이스에 비해 생각하는 거의 대부분의 템플릿을 구현가능 하다는 점 입니다. 마지막으로 태깅 (tagging)이라고 하는 작업의 특징 상 그리 복잡도가 높지 않은 로직 코딩과도 비슷한 과정을 거치는데 조건문, 순환문, query 등 기본 지원 기능이 매우 강력한 점이 인상적 입니다. 소프트웨어 개발자 입장에서는 Windward 사용이 머리를 식힐 수 있는 일종의 exercise 로도 꽤 유용했네요.

It has helped to reduce costs. One of the departments that we are working with came back, and said, "They saw an increase of 70 percent efficiency as a result of using or leveraging Windward reports versus the old platform."

IT can now focus on strictly IT initiatives. They are not bogged down by business personnel asking them to change minor things and reports. We can now leverage the business to make changes on their own. This frees up IT resources for some more important things. Read more...
