    Excel4apps and Incisive Software Form Alliance to Enhance Confidence in Excel-based Financial Management and Reporting from SAP and Oracle

    12 days ago

    Combined Solution Helps Enterprises Leverage the Power of Excel with Higher Accuracy and Efficiency

    SAN JOSE, CA – December 9, 2014 – Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based financial inquiry and reporting software for users of SAP and Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Financial software, has announced a collaborative alliance with Incisive Software, a leading provider of spreadsheet management solutions. The companies’ complementary products help businesses get more value from their existing ERP investment and reduce costs, while letting employees continue using their preferred reporting tool, Microsoft Excel, in a way that meets regulatory requirements and manages risk.

    “As with our own users, Incisive Software’s customers clearly appreciate the visibility and ease-of-access that ERP data in Excel provides,” said Melissa Neal, manager, Business Development, Excel4apps. “Collaborating with Incisive provides Excel4apps users with an extra dimension of control and confidence when working with real-time ERP data accessed via our Excel-based products."

    Excel4apps is dedicated to accelerating the financial reporting and analysis process for finance and accounting staff. Through an Excel interface, the company’s flagship reporting tool, GL Wand, taps into live ERP financial data, while the Reports Wand product accesses live data from a variety of ERP modules.

    Like GL Wand and Reports Wand, Incisive’s suite of spreadsheet risk and analysis management solutions focus on enhancing efficiency. Incisive’s solutions include:

     - Concourse provides automated insight into risk from the tens of thousands of spreadsheets in an organization. It offers a team-based approach to spreadsheet collaboration, management and control.

     - Locator enables spreadsheet discovery and risk assessment. It helps enterprises find spreadsheets on a company’s network, generate a spreadsheet inventory, and identify and rank risk.

     - Xcellerator helps spreadsheet users resolve errors and risks. It combines powerful error detection with investigative capabilities allowing users to comprehensively analyze spreadsheets.

    New Auto Setup Feature for Excel4apps Wands Suite of Reporting and Budget Loading Tools Puts ERP Data in User Hands within Minutes

    21 August 2014

    Auto server initial install and setup, coupled with existing zero client install, means Oracle users tap into live ERP system data with even less IT effort

    Raleigh, N.C. (August 21, 2014) – When it comes to trying new tools for accessing and reporting ERP system data, users and IT departments may hesitate due to perceived complexity and time constraints for starting such projects. Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with Oracle E-Business Suite, alleviates that concern with a new Auto Server Installation and Setup feature for its Wands 5 Suite of products – GL Wand and Reports Wand for reporting processes and Budget Wand for budget loading tasks.

    "While speed and reduced complexity are advantages of the Auto Install feature, our main motivation was preventing installation errors by reducing steps," said Michele Buson, CEO and Co-founder for Excel4apps. "Finance departments have loved our software for years, and with this new Java-based zero client-install architecture and easier installation and setup, even more CIOs, database administrators (DBAs) and applications managers will favor our products. This new process reduces the learning curve for IT personnel."

    With the initial Auto Install process, DBAs launch an integrated task that eliminates the need for copying files to servers, making configuration changes, and entering setup information. Once the server component is completed, the desired Wands 5 product(s) are available to authorized users via an Oracle Responsibility, eliminating the need to install software on user desktops. With a simple click, this zero client install makes GL Wand, Reports Wand or Budget Wand toolbars available through Excel in minutes.

    The Wands 5 architecture also means that all users are running the same version and there is no need for each user to download software during an upgrade, removing another IT task. Auto Install is not only used for new installations, but also by existing customers applying upgrades with the same quick process.

    Oracle users who are interested in Excel-based GL Wand, Reports Wand or Budget Wand for real-time budget loading and reporting from Financials and other modules are invited to experience a free 30-day trial for unlimited users.

    Looking to Leverage Subledger Accounting for More Flexible Financial Reporting in Oracle E-Business Suite?

    29 July 2014

    Excel4apps shares practical tips; offers webinar on leveraging the rich data provided by subledger accounting with Excel-based GL Wand

    Raleigh, NC (July 29, 2014) - Excel4apps, a provider of Excel-based financial inquiry and reporting software, consistently offers practical tips to help finance teams perform more accurately and efficiently as Oracle E-Business Suite users. Recently, finance teams using Oracle E-Business Suite have searched for ways to capitalize on the detailed accounting data generated by Oracle E-Business Suite’s powerful subledger accounting architecture, and Excel4apps is helping provide answers.

    "The rich accounting data generated with informed use of subledger accounting is very useful for financial reporting and reconciliations," said Gregg van der Westhuizen, Solutions Specialist, Excel4apps. "Our goal is to help finance teams identify reporting challenges with subledger accounting and address them through our straightforward and effective Excel-based GL Wand solution."

    To highlight how to leverage subledger accounting’s power, van der Westhuizen will lead a free webinar from Excel4apps, "Unleash Seamless GL Reporting with Oracle Subledger Accounting," from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. EDT on July 30, 2014.  He will review accounting changes from Oracle E-Business Suite 11i to Oracle E- Business Suite 12, as well as expand on answers to these and related questions:

    What are the limitations of standard Oracle reports with subledger accounting?
    Subledger accounting architecture removes limitations on the information that users can transfer to the subledger accounting repository. This means that a powerful, but flexible, reporting tool is needed to capitalize on the detailed accounting repository. Also, these reports output a static text format so users cannot drill back to the transaction source.

    How do users benefit from using an Excel-based reporting tool with subledger accounting?
    Finance users can gain easy access to the incredibly rich detail provided by subledger accounting without the help of IT using GL Wand. Its Excel-based interface delivers flexibility for end users to create sophisticated reports with the exact information needed from subledger accounting or general ledger data and the ability to refresh these reports in real time. Users can also drill from the balance in a report down to the detailed balances, journals and subledgers.

    In addition, webinar participants will learn how to use GL Wand to get key transactional information to the general ledger using the standard, Oracle-supported Subledger Accounting Methods Builder for further expediting reporting processes. Find out more webinar details and reserve your space here.

    Excel4apps’ GL Wand has achieved Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle E-Business Suite, and Excel4apps is a Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN).

The new hires are another indication of Excel4apps’ impressive recent growth in MEA, the company’s fastest growing region in terms of revenue for 2012 and 2013.

"Last year, MEA’s success played an important role in our 74% global staff growth. We are thrilled to continue this impressive trajectory with the addition of these two dynamic individuals to our team."

    De Richelieu will be responsible for sales of Excel4apps solutions throughout the Middle East.

"Anthony brings a wealth of sales experience and a huge amount of energy to our MEA region," Savill said.

    Excel4apps and IQX Business Solutions introduces Reports Wand to Suite of Fast and Flexible Excel-Based Reporting Tools for SAP®

    3 July 2014

    Reports Wand eliminates the need to continuously re-export data by offering live, direct Excel-based access to all SAP modules. IQX Business Solutions, exclusive distributor for Excel4apps SAP Products in Australia, launched Reports Wand in Sydney last week.

    Excel4apps and IQX Business Solutions are pleased to announce the release of Reports Wand, a solution for creating Excel-based reports from a range of functional areas, or modules, in SAP. Reports Wand for SAP is used on its own or as a complement to Excel4apps’ flagship GL Wand solution, which produces financial reports via an Excel-based interface to live data from SAP Financials. The products are built on the Excel4apps philosophy of easy, accurate access to ERP system data.

    “Our customers love the simplicity and self-sufficiency offered by GL Wand and the introduction of Reports Wand extends these benefits to all ERP users.” Dave Cole, Sales and Marketing Director, IQX Business Solutions. “With its ability to drill down into SAP data sources outside SAP Financials, Reports Wand opens a universe of new possibilities for developing highly customized reports, while better leveraging an SAP investment,” said Grant Peterson, Excel4apps’ SAP product manager. “It’s a powerful combination—to use SAP query ability for accessing data anywhere in the ERP system and to capitalize on Excel’s strength as an interface and report creation tool. Because data is refreshable in existing reports, there is no need to reformat a report each time new data is added.”

    The solution for SAP is similar to Reports Wand for the Oracle E-Business Suite released several years ago. The new Reports Wand accesses key SAP modules, including:
    - Controlling (CO) - Sales & Distribution (SD) - Human Capital Management (HCM) - Materials Management (MM) - Plant Maintenance (PM) - Production Planning (PP) - Finance (FI)

    In addition, users can produce highly detailed and formatted reports without IT involvement using pre-existing SAP queries and SAP reports. If the SAP query does not exist, an organization’s IT support staff simply defines the SAP query and turns it over to users for additional customization in Reports Wand, without the need for ongoing IT support. Integration with existing SAP reports is planned for a future release.

    Users can exploit Excel formatting, pivot tables, charts and user-defined functions to create variants of reports that are multi-tiered and drillable to data levels set by IT, while leveraging the existing SAP value sets and security. To do so, users simply modify parameters, filters or options on a Reports Wand task pane and re-execute the sheet or double click to drill into details.

    Reports Wand offers increased flexibility and speed in terms of filtering, sorting and formatting real-time SAP data in Excel. Because users work in a familiar Excel environment with Reports Wand, as with GL Wand, the software requires minimal training.

    Excel4apps is a member of the SAP PartnerEdge™ Program.

    Excel4apps Introduces Reports Wand to Suite of Fast and Flexible Excel-Based Reporting Tools for SAP®

    9 May 2014

    Reports Wand eliminates the need to continuously re-export data by offering live, direct Excel-based access to all SAP modules

    RALEIGH, NC  (May 6, 2014) –  Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with SAP, has announced release of its Reports Wand solution for creating Excel-based reports from a range of functional areas, or modules, in SAP.  Reports Wand for SAP is used on its own or as a complement to Excel4apps’ flagship GL Wand solution, which produces financial reports via an Excel-based interface to live data from SAP Financials. The products are built on the Excel4apps philosophy of easy, accurate access to ERP system data.

    “With its ability to drill down into SAP data sources outside SAP Financials, Reports Wand opens a universe of new possibilities for developing highly customized reports, while better leveraging an SAP investment,” said Grant Peterson, Excel4apps’ SAP product manager. “It’s a powerful combination—to use SAP query ability for accessing data anywhere in the ERP system and to capitalize on Excel’s strength as an interface and report creation tool. Because data is refreshable in existing reports, there is no need to reformat a report each time new data is added.”

    The solution for SAP is similar to Reports Wand for the Oracle E-Business Suite released several years ago. The new Reports Wand accesses key SAP modules, including:

    - Controlling (CO)
    - Sales & Distribution (SD)
    - Human Capital Management (HCM)
    - Materials Management (MM)
    - Plant Maintenance (PM)
    - Production Planning (PP)
    - Finance (FI)

    In addition, users can produce highly detailed and formatted reports without IT involvement using pre-existing SAP queries and SAP reports. If the SAP query does not exist, an organization’s IT support staff simply defines the SAP query and turns it over to users for additional customization in Reports Wand, without the need for ongoing IT support. Integration with existing SAP reports is planned for a future release.

    Users can exploit Excel formatting, pivot tables, charts and user-defined functions to create variants of reports that are multi-tiered and drillable to data levels set by IT, while leveraging the existing SAP value sets and security.  To do so, users simply modify parameters, filters or options on a Reports Wand task pane and re-execute the sheet or double click to drill into details.

    Reports Wand offers increased flexibility and speed in terms of filtering, sorting and formatting real-time SAP data in Excel. Because users work in a familiar Excel environment with Reports Wand, as with GL Wand, the software requires minimal training.

    Excel4apps is a member of the SAP PartnerEdge™ Program. For more information on Reports Wand for SAP, visit here.

    Looking for New Ways to Avoid the Time Crunch When Creating Month-End and Ad-Hoc Financial Reports?

    22 November 2013

    Excel4apps shares practical tips on making reporting faster and easier for Oracle and SAP users  

    Pittsburgh, PA  (November 21, 2013) – Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based financial inquiry and reporting software, consistently provides practical tips to finance teams to help them perform more accurately and efficiently as Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) and SAP users. From finance teams around the world, the latest ideas—on how to accelerate month-end and ad-hoc financial processes with real-time Excel-based reporting—are drawing positive responses.

    “Teams are pressed for time when creating month-end and ad-hoc financial reports using standard Oracle and SAP tools,” said Tiffany Newkirk, Solutions Specialist for Excel4apps. “By providing solid answers, along with solutions like our flagship GL Wand reporting tool, to common financial reporting questions, we are helping teams accelerate financial processes. At Excel4apps, we are committed to making financial reporting easier.”

    Excel4apps offers these tips for frequent questions about accelerating month-end and ad-hoc reporting and how Excel4apps solutions can help:

    How does real-time data at month’s end speed the reporting process?
    Using GL Wand’s Excel-based interface to live Oracle or SAP data, analysts simply click to refresh reports with the latest general ledger (GL) data, trial balances and journal entries. They don’t have to re-create reports or wait for updates from tools that can’t access real-time data.

    How can ad-hoc reporting become faster and easier?
    Financial analysts—who regularly work in Excel—can rapidly build specialized reports with GL Wand. Wizards and step-by-step instructions expedite the process. Real-time report data is reliable and drillable for locating transactional specifics.

    How can users reconcile Accounts Payable/Accounts Receivable faster and more accurately?
    AP and AR reconciliations are efficiently executed using GL Wand’s drill down capability, which supports a deeper look into accounts than even Oracle or SAP reports provide.  Users can pull one or more accounts, as well as account listings, so that AP and AR information is available in one drill down.

    How are reports distributed with an Excel-based system?
    GL Wand’s Report Distribution Manager lets Oracle and SAP financial users create templates that execute and output financial reports to a shared directory or via an email list. With a mouse click, monthly departmental reports are refreshed and emailed in an Excel, HTML or PDF format.

    Why would Oracle users want GL Wand instead of Client ADI?
    Replacement of the Client Application Desktop Integrator (ADI) in Oracle EBS Release 12 with browser-based applications has led many organizations to implement GL Wand because it can deliver real-time GL report data.

    GL Wand dramatically cuts steps from the report creation process, even beyond Client ADI.  It consolidates the monthly financial package into one Excel workbook with multiple tabs for a completely drillable package. With Client ADI, users must individually open each static report in the package, then refresh and execute it.

    22 May 2013

    In interactive panel discussions, customers of Excel4apps highlighted how GL Wand enables real-time SAP financial reporting with easy drill down and reporting from an Excel-based interface

    Raleigh,  NC – May 22, 2013 – SAP users learned how Excel4apps  expedites financial reporting from SAP with its flagship GL Wand solution at SAPPHIRE NOW, Americas’ SAP Users’ Group (ASUG) Annual Conference, held May 14-16 in Orlando. In an interactive customer panel, Kevin Lybbert, senior cost/SAP analyst for Purcell Systems, and Anton Farenyk, SAP FI analyst for EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc., shared perspectives on how their companies are improving and streamlining SAP financial reporting with GL Wand.

    Specifically, Lybbert and Farenyk discussed the challenges Purcell and EXFO were experiencing prior to implementing GL Wand. Panel attendees learned how the companies now extract live data from their SAP systems using GL Wand’s Microsoft Excel interface for fast, flexible ad-hoc reporting and analysis. They also heard how to report balances from the new SAP general ledger (GL) and the classic GL, as well as how to execute cost center accounting, profit center accounting, orders, activity types, and statistical key figures (SKF), all within the ease of Excel.

    According to Lybbert, Purcell Systems has significantly expedited monthly closes by creating financial reports in GL Wand. “We’ve reduced our month end from four days to one with GL Wand and we can now trust the data,” he said, referring to GL Wand’s access to real-time SAP information.

    Farenyk of EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering reflected on GL Wand’s ease of use during the panel discussion. “GL Wand is such an incredibly intuitive tool.  We’ve barely needed any training from Excel4apps,” he noted.

  • Integrate Microsoft Excel Within Your SAP Environment for Seamless, Real-Time Reporting & Analysis

    Featured in SAPinsider - Apr 2013 - Integrate Microsoft Excel Within Your SAP Environment for Seamless, Real-Time Reporting & Analysis

    11 April 2013

    To make it easier to format and slice and dice data, many financial users manually cut and paste information from a data warehouse into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Excel is often more intuitive for them than other reporting tools, and its familiar formatting capabilities and robust functionality support effective communication and easy calculations and modeling of financial data. 

    Even after an ERP implementation and the introduction of new reporting tools and capabilities, many financial users still prefer to use Excel as a front-end interface for structuring reports and manipulating data into a useful format. However, getting the necessary data from SAP systems into Excel can be a timeconsuming, multi-step process that requires help from the IT department, which must program queries for extracting the data and putting it in a data warehouse. Afterward, users must push the data a step further from the warehouse into Excel. Ad hoc report requests like these can become particularly demanding and time consuming for both the finance users and IT, and the more IT falls behind, the longer it takes for the finance department to receive the reports they need.

  • Excel4apps at Collaborate 13

    Excel4apps to Host Educational, Social Events at Collaborate 13 Oracle Applications User Forum

    8 April 2013

    In sessions and at Booth #1217, Excel4apps shows how GL Wand mitigates loss of Client ADI via live link to Oracle financial data, with easy drill down and reporting from an Excel-based interface

    COLLABORATE 13, Denver – April 8, 2013 – Oracle users will have several opportunities to learn about Excel4apps financial reporting solutions at the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) Collaborate 13 forum, held April 7-11 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. A key focus will be on how organizations upgrading to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 or upgrading from MS Excel 2003 can use GL Wand from Excel4apps to solve the challenges in reporting from Oracle’s General Ledger (GL) because Oracle’s Client Application Desktop Integrator (ADI) is no longer available.

    Excel4apps will hold two education sessions during Collaborate, an annual event attended by 5,000 Oracle users:

    - “Deeper Dive into GL Wand 5: The Latest Excel-Based Reporting Solution for Oracle 11i/R12 from Excel4apps” is scheduled for 2:30-3:30 p.m. Monday, April 8. Alex Chard, product developer with Excel4apps, will demonstrate new features in GL Wand 5, the latest pre-release of the GL Wand financial reporting software.
    - “How Glatfelter Insurance Group Is Streamlining Oracle R12 Reporting Using Excel-Based Solutions” is scheduled for 1-2 p.m. Wednesday, April 10. Jennifer Raffensberger, Corporate Controller for Glatfelter, one of the largest privately owned insurance brokers in the U.S., will discuss how GL Wand is filling the gaps left with the loss of Client ADI in the R12 environment.

    “We look forward to sharing our experience with GL Wand during Collaborate,” said Raffensberger. “The product has saved us countless hours and freed us up to focus more on data analysis. The more we use GL Wand, the more applications we find for it.”

    Used for years to produce FSG (Financial Statement Generator) reports, Oracle’s Client ADI was replaced in R12 by browser-based applications that leave gaps with the familiar Client ADI functionality. Many organizations upgrading to R12 or upgrading to Excel 2007 or 2010 have turned to GL Wand from Excel4apps because it delivers real-time GL data via a direct link between Oracle and Excel, dramatically cutting steps from the report creation process – even beyond Client ADI.

    Prior to the official opening of Collaborate 13, Excel4apps will host its first user group workshop, an interactive session in which Oracle E-Business Suite 11i/R12 users will hear from experts on how to maximize GL Wand and Reports Wand from Excel4apps. The workshop is scheduled for 1-4:45 p.m. on Sunday, April 7. Other Excel4apps events at Collaborate 13 include:

    - RadiOAUG interview with Scott Engel of Enphase Energy
    , a current Excel4apps customer using GL Wand with R12 reporting, at 7:45 p.m., Monday, April 8.
    - “Grab and Go” event, Monday, April 8. Those entering the exhibit hall at its 6 p.m. opening receive an Excel4apps Collaborate T-shirt along with a key that might open the Excel4apps treasure chest at the company’s Booth #1217.
    - Cocktail reception from 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, April 9, for customer and prospects. Hosted by Excel4apps and two of its business partners, More4apps and Infosemantics, the reception will be held at Tag Restaurant near the Colorado Convention Center.

    “We are delighted to have such a high profile at Collaborate 13,” said Chris Meyer, President, Americas for Excel4apps. “And we look forward to sharing our expertise on how GL Wand helps Oracle users sidestep issues with the loss of Client ADI in the R12 environment. We also will be showcasing the exciting new features in GL Wand 5, which further empowers financial users with faster refreshes and drill downs to Oracle General Ledger data.”

    According to Meyer, GL Wand users have noted that submitting ad-hoc reports that once took 15 minutes with Client ADI and 45 minutes with R12 reporting tools take less than five minutes in GL Wand, leaving more time for valuable analysis and less time with frustrating, multi-step processes.

    GL Wand is an Oracle Validated Integration solution, and Excel4apps is a Gold-level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork and a 5-Star OAUG partner. For more information on GL Wand Pre-Release 5 and to access a free trial, visit www.excel4apps.com/glwand5.

  • Loss of Client ADI - Oracle R12

    Frustrated by Reporting after Oracle R12 or Excel 2007 Migration? GL Wand Sidesteps Struggles from Loss of Client ADI

    19 July 2012

    GL Wand mitigates the loss of Client ADI with R12 or Excel 2007 migrations via direct link to Oracle financial data, with easy drill down and intuitive report creation from an Excel-based interface

    Raleigh, NC – July 19, 2012
    – As organizations upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) Release 12 or MS Excel 2007, they encounter challenges in reporting from the General Ledger (GL) because Oracle’s Client Application Desktop Integrator (ADI) is no longer available. Used for years to produce FSG (Financial Statement Generator) reports, Client ADI was replaced in R12 by browser-based applications that leave gaps with the familiar Client ADI functionality. Many organizations upgrading to R12 or Excel 2007 have turned to GL Wand from Excel4apps because it delivers real-time GL data via a direct link between Oracle and Excel, dramatically cutting steps from the report creation process – even beyond Client ADI.

    “Using their Excel skills, financial users easily create and modify standard and ad-hoc reports with GL Wand’s friendly Excel interface and drill down to sub-ledger details with a simple mouse click – all without requiring IT support,” said Chris Meyer, Managing Director Americas for Excel4apps. “GL Wand reports are similar to those from Oracle methods, yet the process is faster and more intuitive. GL Wand users have noted that submitting ad-hoc reports that once took 15 minutes with Client ADI and 45 minutes with R12 reporting tools take less than five minutes in GL Wand, leaving more time for valuable analysis and less time with frustrating, multi-step processes.”

    Now available, the latest version of GL Wand – GL Wand Pre-Release 5 – further empowers financial users with faster refreshes and drill downs to Oracle GL data. The Java-based software installs easily for IT departments and launches directly from Oracle, creating even less steps in the reporting process for users. Intuitive toolbars and enhanced functionality help financial users build richer reports in less time.

    GL Wand is an Oracle Validated Integration solution, and Excel4apps is a Gold-level member in Oracle PartnerNetwork. For more information on GL Wand Pre-Release 5 and to access a free trial, visit www.excel4apps.com/glwand5.

  • Nucleus Research Finds GL Wand Fills Reporting Gaps Left by Enterprise Systems and Traditional BI Software

    22 July 2011

    RALEIGH, NC (July 21, 2011) – In order to provide value, financial data from enterprise systems like SAP and Oracle must be in the right hands at the right time, yet reporting information from these applications remains a challenge for many organizations in terms of time and resources.

    In a recently published, independent research note, Nucleus Research found that gaps in reporting left by enterprise and BI systems can be filled by non-traditional BI tools like GL Wand from Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based financial reporting software for use with SAP and Oracle. GL Wand pulls general ledger data directly into an easy-to-manipulate Excel ® spreadsheet, without the need for a data warehouse or information technology (IT) programming support.

  • Excel4apps and Z Option Announce Partnership to Offer Business Users Full Circle Access to SAP Financials

    23 March 2011

    Business users gain direct links to SAP through familiar Excel interfaces for uploading and downloading data without programming help

    RALEIGH, NC (March 23, 2011) – Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel based reporting software for use with SAP and Oracle, has today announced its partnership with Z Option, a leading developer of complementary software solutions for SAP. With easy spreadsheet uploads from Z Option’s GLSU product and direct downloads of live SAP data for financial reports using GL Wand from Excel4apps, business users never leave the comfort of Excel to complete critical tasks.

    “We are pleased to join forces with Z Option to provide business users real-time, full circle access to SAP, without lengthy waits for programming support that cut into valuable time needed for financial analysis,” said Chris Meyer, Director Americas for Excel4apps. “GLSU’s ability to quickly upload general ledger entries is a natural complement to GL Wand’s fast downloads of SAP data for ad hoc and standard reports. Because users directly interface with SAP via Excel, productivity, as well as accuracy, is maximized with these products.”

    Both GL Wand and GLSU are easy to install and require no additional hardware. Likewise, the two products require little training, as most financial users and accountants have already mastered Excel. In addition to holding SAP Partner status, Excel4apps and Z Option share a similar corporate background, as well as a culture grounded in customer support.

    “Excel4apps holds our own philosophy for establishing long-term relationships with customers, as well as our core belief in developing real solutions for real-world business challenges,” said Jim Halepaska, Co-Founder of Z Option. “Like us, Excel4apps was founded by accounting and finance experts, so our common mission is to support these types of users by sharing our skills and providing flexible software that improves productivity in working with SAP.”

    For customers like iNova Pharmaceuticals, a provider of over-the-counter and prescription medicines to international markets, the combined power of GL Wand and GLSU results in an automated monthly accounting cycle. The company’s finance group easily capitalizes on the familiar Excel access each tool provides to SAP.

    “As an accountant, I simply calculate an adjusting journal based on actual values with GL Wand, then upload the adjustment amounts as journals using GLSU – without rekeying values or performing other error-prone and inefficient activities,” said Peter Tysoe, Group Finance Manager for iNova Pharmaceuticals. “To complete the process, I simply click the refresh button to see the latest updated actuals. Any templates I may create can easily be used next month, or adapted for other areas to further speed up month-end cycles.”

GL Wand augments SAP by helping users access and analyze live financial information more productively through a familiar Excel front end.

  • Excel4apps Accelerates FSG Report Conversion for Oracle Users with Latest GL Wand Release

    7 October 2009

    GL Wand’s new FSG Converter helps organizations quickly transform Oracle reports into an easy-to-use Excel format

    ORACLE OpenWorld, San Francisco, CA, October 12, 2009 – Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel based reporting and budgeting software for Oracle users, today announced the release of GL Wand 3.90. The upgrade includes a feature for fast conversion of reports from Oracle’s Financial Statement Generator (FSG) into a familiar Excel format. Within minutes, GL Wand’s FSG Converter transforms Oracle FSG reports into a formatted, refreshable and drillable Excel based report that accesses live financial data through GL Wand’s tight integration with Oracle.

    “The FSG Converter allows companies that have invested in customized FSG reports to convert them to Excel with minimal effort for future manipulation in GL Wand,” said Chris Meyer, Director Americas for Excel4apps. “Because accountants and financial analysts are working with GL Wand’s Excel front end, they can then easily refresh and edit the former FSG reports without the need for SQL coding and other information technology (IT) support, enabling a more productive organization.”

    The FSG Converter feature quickly extracts and transfers Oracle FSG row and column set definitions into an Excel spreadsheet. Sophisticated drill-down capabilities within GL Wand allow users to view live Oracle data at the journal and sub-ledger levels, as well as see multiple transactions at once. This flexibility has improved productivity for GL Wand users, such as Alliance Coal.

    “GL Wand’s FSG layout of the Excel file is easy to work with and provides a great guideline for converting FSG reports, which now takes us hours instead of days,” said Steve Coop, Corporate Finance and Planning Manager for Alliance Coal. “For reporting and account reconciliations, GL Wand is a must have tool.”

    Coop also commented on GL Wand’s ability to convert the most complex of reports, such as Alliance Coals’ cash flow statement, which includes multiple budget-to actual comparisons.

    “With the FSG Converter, we quickly converted the cash flow statement and released the report in just over one day,” described Steve Coop. “Previously, we had to create complex SQL code to download the row and column set information and merge multiple cells using complex Excel formulas --- a very time consuming process. We appreciate how Excel4apps is continually adding new functionality like the FSG Converter to GL Wand so we spend time analyzing data rather than formatting it.”

  • Excel4apps Teams with Mexico City’s Quadrantix to Serve Spanish Speaking Markets

    4 August 2009

    Raleigh, NC -- Fast growing software developer Excel4apps, which creates time-saving software that allows Oracle users to interface seamlessly with Excel for report generation and distribution, has entered into a reseller agreement with Mexico City-based Quadrantix for GL Wand in Mexico, South America and other Spanish-speaking markets. According to Chris Meyer, Managing Director for the Americas, Excel4apps continues to grow rapidly and finding a partner to help respond to inquiries from Spanish speaking customers has proven important as Oracle users in Mexico and South America find Excel4apps’ software both well priced and appropriate to their needs.

    “Quadrantix has an established track record working with companies that use Oracle Financials, and we have been mutually on each other’s radar for a while. Quadrantix has existing customers who want the reporting capabilities of GL Wand and we have prospects that Quandrantix can serve because of their Spanish language expertise,” Meyer says. Jose Flores, lead partner for Quadrantix, says his firm sees GL Wand as a great product for their current customer base, and they are excited to respond to the inquiries and leads that Excel4apps provides from Spanish-speaking entities.

    “We see a very large market for GL Wand, both within our key Mexico City area, as well as in industrialized parts of Mexico, such as Monterrey, where most businesses rely on Oracle. Businesses in Brazil, Peru and South American markets are also emerging as strongly loyal Oracle users who want to reduce costs and improve efficiencies in reporting,” Flores says.

    The price point for GL Wand is one of its strongest sales points. Not only is it inexpensive to license and easy to install, but training takes as little as two hours. Quadrantix has already created Spanish language webinar materials and will manage customer demos and product evaluations with Spanish speaking customers. Quadrantix has always focused on serving a customer base of Oracle users. Starting with database module support, the company moved in to both development and more broad-based support for end users. The company’s main office is in Mexico City. They also have an office in Monterrey, Mexico, as well as in San Jose, California.

    “We understand the challenges our customers are facing, and we also understand the value GL Wand brings to their processes,” Flores says.

    17 February 2009

    Excel4apps has introduced a new tool called Budget Wand to help customers improve their ability to manage the ever-changing budget and forecasting needs of business.

    “Tough economic times put added pressure on financial professionals who are being asked to find additional efficiencies and provide customized reports to senior executives. Our GL Wand users already know they improve their GL reporting and save time with GL Wand. Now Budget Wand allows users to meet their important financial budgeting and forecasting requirements all from within Excel,” says Shaun Pendrigh, co-founder of Excel4apps. “We are very pleased with the reception we’ve received from customers who have used Budget Wand,” Pendrigh says.

    Budget Wand is a GL Wand add-on that provides the ability to use Excel as the front end of the Oracle General Ledger Budgeting process. Budget Wand makes it easy to create layouts that contain any combination of Actuals, Budgets, Periods and Books to simplify budgeting and forecasting and to update budgets with real time data. Best of all, because Budget Wand is easy to use, deployment is rapid, with minimal IT involvement needed and virtually no training required for users.

    “Accounting professionals know and use Excel daily and most use it for their budgeting needs. Pulling Oracle data into Excel is easy with GL Wand. Budget Wand makes it easy to upload new budgets or forecasts into Oracle. There is virtually no impact on the IT staff, and the add-on takes just minutes,” Pendrigh says. A fully functional trial version of Budget Wand is available by visiting www.excel4apps.com.

    Financial professionals are under intense pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiencies, and the Excel4apps products allow them to generate reports faster and spend more time analyzing financial data to develop strategically smart business solutions. The “try before you buy” offer we make to customers who want to try GL Wand results in an impressive 75% sales rate.

Now with more than 3,500 licensed users for GL Wand worldwide, and sales offices in Raleigh NC, London, South Africa, Sydney, Dubai, , Excel4apps continues to expand its Customer Support Team. The new U.S. Customer Support Center is now open for business in the company’s Raleigh offices.

    “Customers tell us that GL Wand speaks to the issue of improving productivity, and we know it does it at a price point that yields an incredibly fast ROI,” Meyer says. “Since we deal with customers who come from both the financial and Information Technology sides of business, and we deal with businesses both large and small, we hear a lot about the ease of implementation, minimal user startup time, and reliability. Of course being able to leverage Excel as the reporting front end makes the tool amenable to any financial analyst,” Meyer says.

  • Excel4apps Inks Deal with HBO®

    28 September 2008

    Cable Programming Giant Becomes 100th GL Wand Customer

    Raleigh, NC – September 21, 2008 -- Excel4apps, an independent software developer focused on creating applications that work with Oracle® financial reporting systems, has reached an important milestone in the adoption of its GL Wand product with Home Box Office, Inc. (HBO) as its 100th customer. This brings the number of licensed users of the product to more than 2000 worldwide. HBO, America’s most popular pay television service, adopted the GL Wand package to allow their Finance department to run their Oracle reports directly in Microsoft Excel. They began working with Oracle and their E-Business Suite in 2007 to support their financial reporting needs for their growing business in the evolving media and entertainment industry.

    “GL Wand lets us access our Oracle data with Excel in an easy and proficient manner. The way it is linked to the system makes reporting, pulling balances, and accessing detail much easier,” said Michael Hinck, project manager, Finance Systems at HBO. ”Just as importantly, the security remains intact, yet employees at all levels have the ability to do a lot more with the data they have.”

    Customer surveys by Excel4apps have indicated that GL Wand saves customers an average of two-to-four days per person per month on financial reporting, while enabling them to capitalize on their familiarity with Excel. Oracle PartnerNetwork, which works with more than 20,000 companies that create innovative software solutions based on the Oracle software, has recognized the value of the GL Wand system and has listed Excel4apps on the Oracle ISV solution maps for Financial Reporting Analysis.

    “Our customers are excited about the GL Wand offering. They already use Excel and when they see the ease of access to their information during the free trial stage it’s not uncommon to hear excited exclamations during a demo. Our tool allows them to perform their jobs better by offering the best of the Microsoft Excel interface plus the security and performances inherent to Oracle offerings. GL Wand is simple to install, and employees have no problem learning to use it. They very quickly realize that they can save hours on routine and special tasks. They also have the ability to slice and dice their Oracle data in real time and drill down to ledger detail with a few clicks of the mouse,” says Michele Buson, Global Sales and Marketing Director for Excel4apps.

    GL Wand can be downloaded from the Excel4apps website and tested with a simple pass key from the online demo system. A 30 day free trial is available. Technical support is available to users worldwide. For more information on GL Wand, visit the company’s website at www.excel4apps.com, or call 919 882 2114.

  • Excel4apps: Taking the World by the Wand

    19 September 2008

    The growth of Excel4apps in its three short years is a testament to the company’s ability to identify market needs and execute viable solutions that are literally thrilling both IT experts and financial professionals worldwide. With a young and vibrant leadership team and an enviable knowledge of how businesses really work, Excel4apps is poised to continue to make life easier for finance departments in businesses both large and small. As a company borne in the internet age, Excel4apps was created to sell and support its products globally and harness the knowledge and skills of a globally dispersed workforce all joined by the internet.

    Originally launched in South Africa and with its first GL Wand customer being a UK listed bank, the path to globalization was set in motion. After opening offices in Johannesburg, Sydney, and the heart of England, and with a new presence in Dubai and the United States, Excel4apps is servicing the world. The company’s original founders Michele Buson and Shaun Pendrigh, and key executives like Warren Brugger, all have extensive experience working with Oracle in dozens of different business situations. A recurring theme they’d always seen was the desire by financial professionals to use Excel.

    “We saw early on that accountants do not want to move away from Excel, yet so many companies were trying to create business intelligence tools that were Excel-like. We thought, ‘Why not just create the interface so they can use Excel?’ and that is exactly what we did,” says Buson.

    Oracle’s open framework architecture welcomes independent software companies to design applications for their users, and Microsoft Excel is also extendable, so the Excel4apps team set their sights on building the seamless integration that was so desperately needed. The result: one of the fastest growing software tools available: GL Wand. Acceptance of GL Wand has been fueled not only by need and its ability to perform, but by its ease of installation, ease of use, and unbeatable customer service. The company has built a worldwide presence quickly by developing a tool that offers an inexpensive option that allows users to work with tools they are intimately familiar with.

    “Our success continues to be based on our understanding of what business users need. The flexibility of GL Wand means that ad hoc reports can be created in minutes from data in Oracle financials. IT professionals appreciate the ease of installation and deployment, which can take less than an hour,” Buson says.

    As the history of this company continues to evolve and awareness spreads through the global business network, one thing is certain: though the past is relatively short, the future is going to be long and exciting.

In October 1998, Flight Options was formally launched at the 51st Annual NBAA Convention in Las Vegas, NV. While fractional ownership of aircraft was a proven concept with new aircraft, primarily supported by the aircraft manufacturers, Flight Options became the first company to offer a complete line of jets at a 35% savings over comparable aircraft offered new by other programs.

    Flight Options quickly became the fastest growing fractional program in June 1999 by adding 100 customers in just nine months. In December 2001, Flight Options combined operations with Raytheon Travel Air, effectively doubling the size of the company and moving the company into the sale of both new and pre-owned aircraft.

    19 March 2012

    Excel4apps announced that Chicken of the Sea, a organization based in CA, USA, have selected GL Wand to complement their Oracle Financial reporting toolset.

    Chicken of the Sea’s history dates back nearly a century, when fishermen referred to the white albacore tuna as “Chicken of the Sea” because the white color and very mild flavor reminded them of chicken. Since 1952, the Chicken of the Sea brand and iconic Mermaid logo have been known worldwide.

    Consumers have come to know Chicken of the Sea as synonymous with health, nutrition and convenience through the variety of seafood products (tuna, salmon, and specialty seafood) the company provides. Providing consumers these three values — health, nutrition and convenience — are the company’s hallmarks and standards by which Chicken of the Sea ensures confidence among consumers.

    Ensuring a healthy supply of seafood for future generations and the protection of dolphin are imperative to both Chicken of the Sea and its consumers. To ensure the preservation of the environment, Chicken of the Sea vigorously supports high standards of stewardship and management.

  • City of Detroit Reaches Financial Reporting Milestone with Excel-based Tool for Oracle Business Users

    8 March 2011

    Easy access to complex Oracle financial data via Excel expedites annual report

    RALEIGH, NC (March 8, 2011) – For the first time in more than a decade, the City of Detroit in 2010 submitted its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) ahead of schedule, assisted by GL Wand, an Excel-based reporting tool from Excel4apps. Installed in 2009, GL Wand provides finance users a direct link via Excel to financial data in the City’s complex Oracle ERP system, a capability that has quickly decreased the time needed to prepare the CAFR.

    “When I arrived at the City’s Finance Department in 2008, it seemed that we were two centuries behind in the technology needed to produce the City’s CAFR,” said Norman L. White, Chief Financial Officer, City of Detroit. “We would manually run the Oracle reports and then transfer the data to Excel spreadsheets to compile the CAFR -- a long and arduous process.”

    With GL Wand, Finance can quickly produce financial statements from Oracle data. Users pull the data and transmit it directly to the City’s CAFR template. In addition to completing the 2008 and 2009 CAFRs within one fiscal year, the City submitted the fiscal year 2009-2010 CAFR two weeks ahead of deadline. According to White, GL Wand also increased the integrity of the City’s CAFR and enabled users to easily document source data.

    “The ability to drill down directly from the CAFR to the supporting transaction detail has been a great analytical tool,” White described. “Thanks to GL Wand, it now seems like our technology for producing the CAFR and other financial reports is ahead of our peers.”

    RALEIGH, NC (September 14, 2010) – Financial reporting after a merger, acquisition, or new company formation is often challenging, as companies struggle to standardize information technology (IT) systems and consolidate data.

  • GL Wand Simplifies Project Accounting at HBO

    6 August 2009

    With just a year of experience since their implementation of Oracle R12 in August 2008 and the purchase of GL Wand, HBO accounting professionals are singing the praises of using GL Wand for their project accounting. More than 50 members of the Pittsburgh OAUG were treated to a presentation by Michael Hinck from HBO’s New York headquarters during the group’s quarterly meeting in June.

    Although initially brought in for GL reporting, the ease of using GL Wand quickly had ideas flying at HBO about using the tool in the Project Accounting area. Projects at a company like HBO are of gargantuan size. They include all of their original programming, such as wildly successful series like Sex in the City, the Sopranos, and Entourage, as well as dozens of projects that are in development every season. Projects are tracked from inception through production, and once produced and airing, the projects success may mean many are destined for syndication to other networks, both domestic and overseas. Projects also have video components and merchandise, and tracking revenue per project, on a show that lasts many seasons, can be a complex and difficult thing. Or at least it was before GL Wand. Since each show includes its own independent expenses, executives require P&L statements for each program. On traditional networks, revenues come from advertising, but on a network like HBO, it comes from distribution, flowing through a variety of revenue streams.

    “We had purchased GL wand for our GL reporting. We loved the tool, but our GL reporting was really simple, so we decided to try to use it with our Project Accounting. By using SLA in R12, we were able to change our core data and point it in different directions, so we send it to GL Wand. Now we can track our revenue not only within each project, but across category lines. Our executives often want to know how a certain genre is performing, such as all one hour dramas or all half hour comedies,” Hinck says.

    To assist in adapting GL Wand for Project Accounting, the team at Excel4apps created a way for users to query DFF attributes. This allowed for reports to be created that compared various projects to each other and combined revenues and other information. “The fact that the team at Excel4apps would work with us to customize the product really blew us away,” Hinck says. “It’s customer service that is out of this world.”

    Today if an executive at HBO asks for how much sales and marketing expenses have occurred with one hour dramas that are in development, the number can be found with a few simple clicks. Users at HBO particularly appreciate the product’s reporting tools that allow you to drill down or expand upon information and send reports that correspond to user’s security clearances. This allows them to slice and dice data within programs, genre, or function.

    “With GL Wand, it’s simple to create different reports for non-finance users and end-users who need the detail. You create your queries and get information, and then you can drill down to the vendor detail, but users will only see what they have the security clearance to see,” says Hinck. “The best thing is you build your reports in Excel using GL Wand and you save them. Then every month you just have to change the date field and use the Get Balance formula to update the report. You refresh the screen, and you have an updated report. The report manager creates the emails that send the customized reports to all your users. It couldn’t be easier,” Hinck says.

Because all our users are intimately familiar with Excel, the training was minimal. It took less than two hours to train report users and no more than six hours for report developers to be off and running. The time savings for everyone is incredible..."

  • Financial Power “Even Executives Can Use”

    18 September 2008

    In this age of technology, it’s not uncommon for senior executives to do things for themselves. When your organization is running lean and mean and striving for productivity to help capitalize on exciting opportunities, the tools you use make a difference. For Integro Insurance Brokers, their acquisition of technology is always based on an analysis of functions, ease of use, and wherever possible, self-sufficiency. Scott Ashen, who is responsible for Integro’s Oracle and HRIS systems spends half his day in IT and the other half in accounting. With resources spread thin, he knew his users needed simple solutions that would allow them to create ad hoc reports and complex reconciliations without involving IT. With GL Wand, he got exactly what he needed.

    “Our consulting partner was helping us evaluate reporting options. We evaluated GL Wand and another product, and GL Wand was a slam dunk. Our people think in Excel. It’s like their right arm, so they are working in a media they are extremely comfortable with,” Ashen says.

    Today Integro uses GL Wand not only for dozens of reconciliations and ad hoc reports, but also for most of their month end reporting. The presentation quality reports appeal to Integro professionals, and according to Ashen, the flexibility and power of the tool is literally cutting the time it takes to do complex reconciliations in half.

    “We are saving so much time organization-wide while giving people the ability to be self sufficient. Our executives can do reports themselves, and they like that a lot,” Ashen says. For more about Integro, read our press release and case study coming soon.

  • Change in the Get Balance “all values” parameter (Release 3.85.0)

    2 December 2008

    Feature Description: Previously when leaving a particular Get Balance segment parameter empty, GL Wand would assume that you want all values for that segment. You had the option to either specify a “%” to denote all values or simply leave the segment parameter blank. This functionality has however caused problems in certain situations. For example a user copies and pastes a Get Balance formula onto a new row. The Get Balance formula is linked in the segment 3 parameter to column A, however on this new row the value in column A is blank. If your GL Wand calculation is it set to “On” this calculation will start and may take a long time to complete as GL Wand is assuming you want all values for segment 3. Feature Benefit: You must now specifically enter a “%”to denote all values. This gives GL Wand the ability to know whether you are specifically requesting all values or that you have simply not completed entering the formula yet. This change also prevents GL Wand from duplicating the calculations which can result in certain cases when Excel does not initially get the calculation dependencies correct. This can happen when you derive the segment values using an Excel formula like Mid or the GL Wand Split_Text.

  • Get Balance now supports converted amount (Release 3.85.0)

    2 December 2008

    Feature Description: The Get Balance formula now contains a new option for the translated flag, namely “C” for converted. When using this option GL Wand will return the converted amount in functional currency for a particular entered currency. Feature Benefit: This amount type was previously not available in GL Wand.

  • New calculation option for Get Balance in Release 3.85.0

    Feature Description: The GL Wand logon screen now has a new check box which allows you to select an alternative method for processing Get Balance formulas. You can select this option at each logon and vary it to suit which ever method provides you with the best performance for particular GL Wand reports. Feature Benefit: In certain situations this alternate Get Balance processing method can result in a significant performance improvement. When selecting this option, the initial GL Wand logon may be slower. We recommend testing your slower GL Wand reports using the old and the new method to determine which method is better for your environment.

  • Discover parent hierarchy (Release 3.85.0)

  • Explode using the parent hierarchy (Release 3.85.0)

    1 December 2008

    Feature Description: You can now perform an explode using the Oracle defined parent hierarchy.

  • Support for specifying segment criteria spanning account combinations in Release 3.80.0

    12 October 2008

    Feature Description: In the past the Get Balance function only supported criteria independent to each segment e.g. seg 2 = 100 or 200 and seg 3 = 1000 or 2000. This would result in GL Wand returning all the possible combinations of those segment 2 and 3 criteria. It is now possible to specify criteria spanning the account combination using the new Get Balance syntax. This means that you can create new complex criteria for your Get Balance formula e.g. (seg 2 = 100 and seg 3 = 1000) or (seg 2 = 200 and seg 3 = 2000). With this criteria GL Wand will no longer return all the possible combinations but rather only the combinations you specify. Feature Benefit: Significantly enhanced reporting capability for customers requiring the ability to specify criteria for account combinations rather than individual segment values only. Previously this required using multiple Get Balance formulas to achieve the same result. Now you have the capability of specifying these complex criteria in a single Get Balance function.

  • After Upgrade to Oracle R12 Get Balance is incorrect

    5 June 2008

    After upgrading to Oracle release 12 your Get Balance formulas may start giving an incorrect balance. The reason is that there is a new balance option in release 12. In the past you could report on "Entered" or "Translated" balances. In R12 you can report on "Entered", "Translated" or "Total". GL Wand supports this new "Total" option. For all Get Balance calculations where you want to see the full balance on the account you should now use the "Total" option. You can do a find and replace on your reports to replace "E" with "Total" to fix the Get Balance formulas in existing reports.
