Excel4apps to Host Educational, Social Events at Collaborate 13 Oracle Applications User Forum In sessions and at Booth #1217, Excel4apps shows how GL Wand mitigates loss of Client ADI via live link to Oracle financial data, with easy drill down and reporting from an Excel-based interface COLLABORATE 13 Business Wire DENVER -- April 8, 2013 Oracle users will have several opportunities to learn about Excel4apps financial reporting solutions at the Oracle Applications Users Group (OAUG) Collaborate 13 forum, held April 7-11 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. A key focus will be on how organizations upgrading to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 or upgrading from MS Excel 2003 can use GL Wand from Excel4apps to solve the challenges in reporting from Oracle’s General Ledger (GL) because Oracle’s Client Application Desktop Integrator (ADI) is no longer available. Excel4apps will hold two education sessions during Collaborate, an annual event attended by 5,000 Oracle users: *“Deeper Dive into GL Wand 5: The Latest Excel-Based Reporting Solution for Oracle 11i/R12 from Excel4apps” is scheduled for 2:30-3:30 p.m. Monday, April 8. Alex Chard, product developer with Excel4apps, will demonstrate new features in GL Wand 5, the latest pre-release of the GL Wand financial reporting software. *“How Glatfelter Insurance Group Is Streamlining Oracle R12 Reporting Using Excel-Based Solutions” is scheduled for 1-2 p.m. Wednesday, April 10. Jennifer Raffensberger, Corporate Controller for Glatfelter, one of the largest privately owned insurance brokers in the U.S., will discuss how GL Wand is filling the gaps left with the loss of Client ADI in the R12 environment. “We look forward to sharing our experience with GL Wand during Collaborate,” said Raffensberger. “The product has saved us countless hours and freed us up to focus more on data analysis. The more we use GL Wand, the more applications we find for it.” Used for years to produce FSG (Financial Statement Generator) reports, Oracle’s Client ADI was replaced in R12 by browser-based applications that leave gaps with the familiar Client ADI functionality. Many organizations upgrading to R12 or upgrading to Excel 2007 or 2010 have turned to GL Wand from Excel4apps because it delivers real-time GL data via a direct link between Oracle and Excel, dramatically cutting steps from the report creation process – even beyond Client ADI. Prior to the official opening of Collaborate 13, Excel4apps will host its first user group workshop, an interactive session in which Oracle E-Business Suite 11i/R12 users will hear from experts on how to maximize GL Wand and Reports Wand from Excel4apps. The workshop is scheduled for 1-4:45 p.m. on Sunday, April 7. Other Excel4apps events at Collaborate 13 include: *RadiOAUG interview with Scott Engel of Enphase Energy, a current Excel4apps customer using GL Wand with R12 reporting, at 7:45 p.m., Monday, April 8. *“Grab and Go” event, Monday, April 8. Those entering the exhibit hall at its 6 p.m. opening receive an Excel4apps Collaborate T-shirt along with a key that might open the Excel4apps treasure chest at the company’s Booth #1217. *Cocktail reception from 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, April 9, for customer and prospects. Hosted by Excel4apps and two of its business partners, More4apps and Infosemantics, the reception will be held at Tag Restaurant near the Colorado Convention Center. “We are delighted to have such a high profile at Collaborate 13,” said Chris Meyer, President, Americas for Excel4apps. “And we look forward to sharing our expertise on how GL Wand helps Oracle users sidestep issues with the loss of Client ADI in the R12 environment. We also will be showcasing the exciting new features in GL Wand 5, which further empowers financial users with faster refreshes and drill downs to Oracle General Ledger data.” According to Meyer, GL Wand users have noted that submitting ad-hoc reports that once took 15 minutes with Client ADI and 45 minutes with R12 reporting tools take less than five minutes in GL Wand, leaving more time for valuable analysis and less time with frustrating, multi-step processes.
