Budget Wand for Oracle

Faster budgeting and forecasting cycles for your organization.

Budget Wand allows Excel to be used as the front end to the Oracle General Ledger Budgeting functionality. With Budget Wand, Oracle Financial users can meet their important financial budgeting and forecasting requirements, all from within Excel and with minimal effort and setup.

Budget Wand together with Excel enables flexible user defined layouts containing any combination of Actuals, Budgets, Periods and Books as required.
