The Embedded Solution consists of two separate products: (1) the Engine code libraries, and (2) the AutoTag report builder.
The Windward Engine is a set of code libraries for integrating reporting and document generation into both internal and commercial software applications. To get started, all your development team has to do is incorporate one of our three Report Engines (Java, .NET, or RESTful) into your company system or product. You can:
- Generate pages per second, not seconds per page
- Use any and all of your data sources, even simultaneously on the same template
- Work with an extremely small footprint
- Output to a wide range of formats including DOCX, RTF, PDF, HTML, XLSX, or even directly to your printer
Note: the Engines do not require Microsoft Office to be installed on your server.
AutoTag, Windward’s report builder and template design tool, lets you create your report and document templates in Microsoft Office. Design professional business reports and documents that look exactly the way you want them to. You can:
- Create templates in Word, Excel or PowerPoint – business applications you already know how to use
- Design and format report templates without relying on your IT staff
- Customize the reports and documents your end users want – AutoTag offers unmatched flexibility
- Easily integrate your international operations with support for multiple languages
