For the fourth straight year, Oracle users recognise innovation and benefits of Excel-based reporting tools from Excel4apps, with specific honours for Financial Services and Public Sector implementations

Staffordshire, UK – 25 October 2012 - Excel4apps, an Oracle Gold Partner and provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with Oracle and other applications, won four 2012 Partner of the Year Awards from the UK Oracle User Group (UKOUG). Chosen by Oracle end users for outstanding solutions and support over the past 12 months, Excel4apps was honoured during a black-tie Awards Banquet at London’s Roof Gardens on Oct. 18, where 19 award categories were recognised.

A Silver Award in the Independent Software Vendor category marks the third consecutive year Excel4apps has won in that category, while the Silver Award for Innovative Product/Service marks a second consecutive showing. Excel4apps also took home a Silver Partner of the Year Award in the Public Sector category and a Bronze in the Financial Services category.

“It’s a tremendous feeling to earn four awards this year and to know our customers appreciate us for the work we do,” said Dean Jones, Managing Director UK & Europe, Excel4apps. “There are not many awards that are voted solely by customers and this is what makes the UKOUG PYA very special.  They are an incredible validation that Excel4apps sets the standard in the industry with the unique capabilities of GL Wand, our flagship Excel-based reporting tool, and our other Oracle products, as well as our dedicated development and service teams. We put an enormous amount of effort into our solutions and our customer support. These awards tell us we are doing it right.”

In addition to voting on product quality, customers were asked to assess the value of services delivered and the vendor’s relationship/client management skills, as well as how well the vendor contributed to their success over the last 12 months. “During the awards evening, a number of Oracle partners mentioned they often hear about Excel4apps and our great products, and we align very well with them due to our passion, integrity and wanting to offer the customer the best solution,” said Jones. “I want to thank all our customers for saying such great things about us and for putting their trust in us.”
