SAP Financials 2012 Conference — LAS VEGAS –  March 13, 2012 - Faster access to accurate data is a necessity for SAP users looking to accelerate creation of financial reports, monthly closes and other critical reporting processes. To expedite report development, many productivity-minded financial users have turned to GL Wand from Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software that is an SAP Certified Integration application. At the SAP Financials 2012 event in Las Vegas, March 13-16, attendees can visit Excel4apps at Booth 470 to explore how GL Wand fosters efficient reporting and better data visibility using a direct link between SAP Financials and an Excel-based interface, without the need for a data warehouse, additional hardware or programming support.

“With GL Wand, users of SAP Financials access a software shortcut to the data they need and eliminate time-consuming steps, including manual exports of data and waiting on IT for query development,” said Chris Meyer, Director Americas, Excel4apps. “Because GL Wand links directly with real-time SAP data, users have the latest, most accurate financial information at their fingertips in seconds, creating a tremendous time savings when reconciling a number of accounts. Also, the easy Excel-based interface allows users to quickly tailor report fields they need without multiple clicks.”

Alan Schapiro, Vice President of Information Technology for Odyssey Reinsurance Company, a leading worldwide underwriter of reinsurance and specialty insurance, will join Excel4apps and Z Option, an Excel4apps partner, in a presentation at SAP Financials. Scheduled for March 15 from 10:15 - 11:30 am in Room 110, MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, the session will describe how OdysseyRe chose tools for financial reporting and data uploads, walking through its selection process, installation and ongoing product satisfaction related to the company’s use of GL Wand from Excel4apps and GLSU from Z Option.
