Windward, the reporting, document generation and business intelligence expert, has released a new ebook. "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Reporting (But Were Afraid To Ask) – A Business Professional's Guide to Choosing a Reporting Solution" addresses key evaluation criteria to help guide companies in selecting the best reporting tools for their unique situation.
The free ebook covers a myriad of topics including what reporting is, what reporting software does, which vital questions to ask when choosing an enterprise reporting system, and why reporting matters to businesses and organizations of all industries and all sizes.
"Businesses waste millions of dollars every year on enterprise software that is the wrong fit for their company," said Annette Grotz, marketing manager at Windward. "This book is designed to help them make the best application investment decision before it's too late."
The body of the book presents the most important questions to ask when evaluating reporting software. For example, it notes that one of the biggest expenses in the report creation process directly correlates to the design component's ease of use and therefore evaluators should consider the ramp-up time for the template design tool.
