Introducing Windward Intelligence
Business owners and operators are aware that knowledge truly is power. They know that with the right information, they're equipped to make sound decision-making to effectively grow your business.
But how does one get this information?
Yes, you could collect data, work in Excel (what the heck is a 'pivot table', anyway?) and crunch numbers 'til the cows come home -- and still not be any further ahead.
There's a far superior solution.
Windward Software is excited to introduce Windward Intelligence, an easy-to-use, customizable reporting engine that provides business owners with the concise insight they need to make sound executive decisions.
Windward Intelligence combines Windward System Five with Microsoft Power BI to bring you business analytics.Microsoft Power BI is a business analytics service that provides interactive visualizations with self-service business intelligence capabilities. Users can create reports and dashboards by themselves, without having to depend on information technology staff or database administrators.
Windward Intelligence integrates Windward System Five data with Microsoft Power BI technology to provide owners with reports and dashboards for business owners to make sound decisions, as well as to effectively benchmark their business.
By using Windward Intelligence, users will gain valuable insight into both high performing aspects of their business, along with low performance areas that can be improved.
High volumes of data can be analyzed quickly (in seconds, instead of hour-long reports) to provide the information needed to make smart decisions.
Windward Intelligence dashboards can easily be viewed from a computer or from mobile devices using a downloadable app for Android or iOS.

Please note that Windward Intelligence is ONLY available in Windward System Five on Cloud installations (but it's included at no cost!). In addition, Windward Intelligence currently updates 8 times per day, so it's not "real time" yet (but will be in the future).
