New Auto Setup Feature for Excel4apps Wands Suite of Reporting and Budget Loading Tools Puts ERP Data in User Hands within Minutes
RALEIGH, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
When it comes to trying new tools for accessing and reporting ERP system
data, users and IT departments may hesitate due to perceived complexity
and time constraints for starting such projects. Excel4apps,
a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software
for use with Oracle (News - Alert) E-Business Suite, alleviates that concern with a new
Auto Server Installation and Setup feature for its Wands 5 Suite of
products - GL Wand and Reports Wand for reporting processes and Budget
Wand for budget loading tasks.
"While speed and reduced complexity are advantages of the Auto Install
feature, our main motivation was preventing installation errors by
reducing steps," said Michele Buson, CEO and Co-founder for Excel4apps.
"Finance departments have loved our software for years, and with this
new Java-based zero client-install architecture and easier installation
and setup, even more CIOs, database administrators (DBAs) and
applications managers will favor our products. This new process reduces
the learning crve for IT personnel."
With the initial Auto Install process, DBAs launch an integrated task
that eliminates the need for copying files to servers, making
configuration changes, and entering setup information. Once the server
component is completed, the desired Wands 5 product(s) are available to
authorized users via an Oracle Responsibility, eliminating the need to
install software on user desktops. With a simple click, this zero client
install makes GL Wand, Reports Wand or Budget Wand toolbars available
through Excel in minutes.
The Wands 5 architecture also means that all users are running the same
version and there is no need for each user to download software during
an upgrade, removing another IT task. Auto Install is not only used for
new installations, but also by existing customers applying upgrades with
the same quick process.
