Excel4apps Highlights How GL Wand Rescues Oracle Financial Users from Month-End Reporting Frustrations

Creating month-end financial reports from the Oracle E-Business Suite can be a challenge. To rescue users from frustration at month- or year-end closings, the GL Wand financial reporting tool employs a direct link to live Oracle data via a friendly Excel-based interface. Attendees of the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) Collaborate 14 conference, held April 7-11 in Las Vegas, will have the opportunity to hear how organizations capitalize on this powerful, yet simple, solution from Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with ERP systems.

Excel4apps will showcase its flagship GL Wand financial reporting tool in Booth 1233 at The Venetian and Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Collaborate 14’s venue. Requiring no data warehouse and minimal IT support, GL Wand empowers users to create their own reports, which feature robust drill-down capabilities and on-demand refreshes with live data while preserving Excel formatting and formulas. The tool also leverages existing Oracle security settings.

In addition, Excel4apps will hold three education sessions at Collaborate 14:
