Windward Business gives business managers the information they need in order to appraise a critical business tool.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) February 22, 2010
Windward Reports formally announced today the Windward Business website, a reporting site designed with the business professional in mind. Windward Business contains a free reporting guide, samples, videos, software demos, case studies and detailed product information on Windward's suite of business reporting software all written in a language non-technical users can quickly grasp.
Business professionals know how valuable their data is, and solid reporting on that data is crucial to decision making and company success. But in many organizations the responsibility for reporting on company data is in the hands of the IT department, in part because reporting software companies often present highly technical material that ignores the needs of the business user.
"Business professionals evaluate software differently from IT, but until now these professionals haven't had a resource devoted solely to their interests," said Shirley Clawson, CEO of Windward Studios. "Too many reporting sites focus on the technical aspects of reporting and forget that the business group truly understands what makes an effective report. Windward Business gives business managers the information they need in order to appraise a critical business tool."
The Windward Business site's focus mirrors Windward's overall approach to reporting. Because reports are designed in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, there's little learning curve. Users design reports with the help of step-by-step wizards that make inserting data a snap. Windward Reports works with a wide range of data sources, including SQL databases, XML files, Excel spreadsheets and custom sources, to create complete and comprehensive reporting, document generation, mail merge, dashboard and BI systems.
Businesses save time and money while gaining increased understanding into company data. Organizations use Windward Reports for complete and comprehensive reporting, document generation, mail merge, dashboard and BI systems.

About Windward Reports
Launched in 2002, Windward Reports is the only full-featured, robust Java.NET reporting engine to use Microsoft Word (or other MS Office programs) as a layout tool, putting report-design and generation power in the hands of the end user, technical or non-technical. Any Word user can easily and securely create reports with almost no learning curve. Also unique, Windward Reports implements in hours, offers affordable server -based pricing, and offers "prompt, fantastic" technical support via a 24/7 support forum and support contracts. Windward Reports works by merging any XML, SQL or custom data source--or any combination thereof--with a Microsoft Word report template. It feeds data into the template to create a what-you-see-is-what-you-get report that can be generated in PDF, .RTF, HTML, WordML, .XLS, SpreadsheetML, .TXT, or multipart- MIME-email format. Windward Reports runs as a standalone application or in an enterprise computing environment.
