What does the typical Windward customer look like?
A peek at some new customers and recently formed partnerships shows there’s no such thing. For example, we could say:
The typical Windward customer is based in the United States. Like NovaTorque, a manufacturer and developer of innovative, cost-effective, energy-efficient electric motors.
Or we could say:
The typical Windward customer is based in Europe (or Asia or Australia for that matter). Like Coface Servicos Portugal, a business that collects, treats and provides business and financial information about the business world and relies on Windward to generate credit reports for companies.
Let’s try again.
The typical Windward customer is a Java developer. Consider HCRI of Switzerland, which collects medical data online and provides hospitals with reports. HCRI uses the Windward Java Engine and the AutoTag design tool.
Oops, we meant:
The typical Windward customer is a .NET developer. Take RBB Innovations, a Canadian provider of integrated human service software company solutions. RBB Innovations relies on the Windward .NET Engine for template and report creation and generation.
The typical Windward customer likes the freedom to program in any language. Javelin, the platform-agnostic tool that gives you the ability to generate reports in any programming language, even Ruby or Python, is in use by GlassBiller LLC, the auto glass software giant with the only web-based product like it on the market.
No good. Instead let’s look at the use and integration of Windward.
The typical Windward customer incorporates Windward software as a component of its own offering. That’s the case with servicePath LLC, an ASP/OEM from the United Arab Emirates that supports service providers in designing, building, selling and managing the solution life-cycle.
The typical Windward customer uses Windward software as a standalone tool. Career Avenues of Australia is a small consulting group of career & organizational psychologists and other career specialists that writes thousands of reports each year for roughly three dozen different clients.
Well, at least they’re all doing reporting, right?
The typical Windward customer uses Windward software for reporting on data. eCraft, a Finnish OEM that specializes in making ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems usable, uses AutoTag for creating reports.
So far so good.
The typical Windward customer uses Windward software for document generation. Climate Corporation of the U.S., which aims to protect the $3 trillion global agriculture industry from the financial impact of adverse weather with automated, full-season weather insurance, invested in Windward because they needed a new tool for document generation.
Clearly there’s no typical Windward customer, but they all have one thing in common: the need for empowerment through highly customized reports and documents.
