Excel4apps Automates Execution and Delivery of SAP Financial Reports with New Distribution Manager

16 May 2012
SAP financial users are invited to experience firsthand the benefits of report automation with Excel-based tools and speak with Excel4apps customer Upsher-Smith Laboratories at SAPPHIRE NOW in Orlando.

Raleigh, NC – May 11, 2012 – For users of SAP Financials, reporting processes with less steps and more automation translate to extra time for business analysis and faster responses to internal requests. With no programming support, financial users can avoid dealing with a data warehouse and other interim steps using GL Wand, an SAP Certified Integration application from Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software.

Assisted by its customer Uspher-Smith Laboratories, an integrated pharmaceuticals company, Excel4apps will demonstrate the direct link between SAP and GL Wand during the SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG 2012 events, held May 14-16 in Orlando. The demonstration includes information on the new Reports Distribution Manager add on for GL Wand Version 3.45. This feature lets users define reports and their parameters for execution, and then automatically emails them to specified end users or saves them to designated locations.

"In addition to showcasing the new Distribution Manager, we are excited to demonstrate enhancements in the latest version of GL Wand, Version 3.45, which includes easier access to statistical values, improved hierarchy reporting, and an option to display cleared line items in general ledger drill downs," said Chris Meyer, Director Americas, Excel4apps. "We are also excited to share a real-life GL Wand user perspective with attendees from Dale Kukielka, senior business analyst with Upsher-Smith."

Attendees at SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG 2012 can view live demonstrations and receive free, 30-day trials of GL Wand and Sales Wand, a reporting solution for SAP "order to cash" data, at Booth 3022, Orange County Convention Center, May 14-16. For those not attending the events, a free trial of Excel4apps products for SAP are available online.
