How Taconic, Royal College Use Excel to Streamline EBS Reporting presented at Collaborate15

20 April 2015
Excel4apps customers participated in interactive panel discussions and educational sessions during the Collaborate15 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 12-16, 2015. Sonya Nooyen of the Royal College and Rodney Tillinghast of Taconic shared their prior reporting challenges and how they solved them by connecting Excel to real-time E-Business Suite data via GL Wand by Excel4apps.  They focused on discussing (1) benefits of leveraging Excel and Oracle including live data refreshes and drilldown to sub ledger and (2) how they are more independent, rely less on IT and are saving each user 5 days per month. The session was an opportunity for attendees to see first-hand how Excel-based reporting works in a live environment.
