Join Excel4apps at the SAP BI 2012 event to find out how GL Wand provides simple ways for managing complex business data in a friendly Microsoft Excel-based environment

SAP BI 2012 Conference — LAS VEGAS — February 27, 2012 –  For SAP financial users in need of fast access to accurate business data, a practical alternative to traditional business intelligence (BI) tools is available from Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software that is an SAP Certified Integration application. GL Wand for SAP allows finance departments to quickly build reports and detailed dashboards within Excel using a direct link to live SAP data. Excel4apps will demonstrate how GL Wand facilitates detailed analysis of business data at the SAP BI 2012 event in Las Vegas, February 28-March 2, at Booth No. 815.

“By linking directly with SAP, GL Wand ensures that users are viewing and analyzing real-time SAP data from Excel, where it can be easily manipulated and refreshed while populating user-defined dashboards,” said Chris Meyer, Director Americas, Excel4apps. “Also, because GL Wand bypasses the need for multiple data exports and use of a data warehouse, finance departments build reports and dashboards in just days rather than months, allowing them to accomplish many BI objectives without programming help.”

An article in the January - March 2012 issue of insiderPROFILES magazine outlines the benefits of GL Wand, including how end users of SAP ERP Financials can easily manage data in the friendly Excel-based environment. It also describes how GL Wand supports ad hoc and statutory reporting, slice-and-dice analysis, and monthly reconciliations. Additionally, the article provides information on GLSU, a tool from Z Option, an Excel4apps partner, for calculating and posting financial transactions from Excel to SAP just as GL Wand facilitates easy data downloads. This article is available at the SAP BI 2012 event, as well as online at www.excel4apps.com.

Attendees of SAP BI 2012 can view a live demonstration and receive a free, 30-day trial of GL Wand and Sales Wand, an Excel-based reporting solution for SAP “order to cash” data, at Booth No. 815, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV, February 28 - March 2, 2012.
