Excel4apps Announces New Cloud-Enabled Offering for Excel-based Reporting and Budgeting from FinancialForce
Wands for FinancialForce transforms financial processes with direct links to ERP system data via Excel using the GL Wand and Budget Wand products
Pittsburgh, Pa. (July 10, 2018) – Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based reporting and data-loading software for use with Oracle, PeopleSoft and SAP, has announced Wands for FinancialForce. Comprised of GL Wand for reporting of live FinancialForce Accounting data via Excel and Budget Wand for direct uploads of budget data to FinancialForce from Excel, this cloud-enabled offering provides a 360-degree view of financial processes for fast, accurate period-end closes and budgeting cycles.
“We’re excited to extend our products, which have been implemented by 1,100 organizations representing 40,000 users around the world, to FinancialForce customers who want to improve their access to accurate data that drives the best possible business decisions,” said Michele Buson, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of Excel4apps. “As users of FinancialForce and the new GL Wand and Budget Wand software ourselves, we also anticipate the unique opportunity to experience our software as customers do, which should guide future development in all our product lines.”
Like its predecessors for the Oracle, SAP and PeopleSoft platforms, GL Wand for FinancialForce streamlines General Ledger reporting by linking directly to ERP system data from an Excel interface. This allows easy creation of accurate financial reports with Excel skills alone, as well as immediate drill down to balance or transaction lines for faster analysis. Likewise, Budget Wand expedites budget compilation with comprehensive Excel-based models that directly upload to FinancialForce and can be annually reused.
“Used together, these products let you upload data with Budget Wand and then immediately see its impact with a refreshable Excel report using GL Wand, sidestepping many of the manual steps finance professionals usually take to work within Excel with FinancialForce data,” said Buson. “In addition, a FinancialForce-compatible Reports Distribution Manager supports mass dissemination of reports in a variety of formats to further accelerate financial processes, particularly during month end.
