Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Windward, the expert in business reporting, document generation and business intelligence solutions, has released a special Halloween reporting software package. The AutoTag Halloween edition contains numerous treats, from pumpkin skins to wizards to goodie bags of tools, designed to help companies of all sizes and industries make sense out of their data.
"Our customers can scare off the end-of-year report monsters, document generation demons, and other reporting ghouls with our template design tool, AutoTag," said Annette Grotz, marketing manager at Windward. "We love providing tricks and treats to those creating reports."
Windward clients can spice things up with the pumpkin skin, a customized look and feel for designing templates. Users can choose this skin specifically or by selecting the default style and skin, which matches the Microsoft Office theme. The selection doesn't affect the report output, but it adds a little fun to the design process.
In addition, Windward's wizards guide users through key processes in extracting and displaying their data. Instead of traipsing from door to door (as their real-life counterparts will this Oct. 31), the wizards walk users through connecting to data sources, creating and editing variables, and working with stored procedures.
Plus, the AutoTag bag of treats is packed with tools that help save time. Clean Template scrubs a file; Colorize enables easier views of tags throughout a template; Convert Tags converts between field and text styles; Find and Replace operates on attributes in tags; Hyphenate Text allows for cleaner and more organized text layout; and List Imports lists all files placed in a final report via the import process.

Windward offers business intelligence, enterprise reporting, document generation and Web-based business intelligence solutions. Launched in 2002, Windward is the only full-featured, robust Java and .NET engine to use Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint as a layout tool, putting template design and report and document generation power in the hands of the end user. Any Office user can easily and securely create reports and documents with almost no learning curve. Additionally, OEMs and VARs use and embed Windward’s reporting component.
Windward works by merging any XML, SQL or custom data source—or any combination thereof—with a Microsoft Office report template. It feeds data into the template to create a what-you-see-is-what-you-get report or document that can be generated in DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, PDF, HTML, direct to printer, RTF, XLS, WordML, TXT, and CSV. Windward runs as a standalone application or in an enterprise computing environment. Also unique, Windward implements in hours, offers affordable server-based pricing, and offers “prompt, fantastic” technical support via a 24/7 support forum and support contracts.
