Planning Wand for SAP

Planning Wand is an add-on to GL Wand that allows Excel to be used as the front end to the SAP cost planning functionality.

Planning Wand is a GL Wand add-on module for validation and upload of Budget Planning data from Excel into SAP. A simple Excel add-in, Planning Wand offers new pre-integrated Functions for direct uploads of Cost Planning, New GL Planning, Activity Planning, PCA Planning and SKF Planning. In combination with GL Wand to retrieve historical Actual and Plan data, you can convert your existing Excel Planning models to become real-time and fully integrated with SAP, then use Planning Wand Functions for validation and direct uploads of new Plan values to SAP.

Create, modify and upload new plans, faster and more frequently with only Excel and SAP. Rather than investing in expensive, complex dedicated Planning solutions, extend the life of your Excel models to easily achieve monthly forecasting instead of yearly planning only. Rolling forecasts; driver based plans; bottom-up/top-down planning; zero based; trending/incremental planning ― even revenue Planning ― are possible.
