PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with SAP and Oracle, has introduced GL Wand for PeopleSoft. An add-in to Microsoft Excel, GL Wand supports flexible, real-time reporting of PeopleSoft General Ledger (GL) data. It offers an easier, more sophisticated alternative to PS/nVision with advanced, user-friendly features like customizable drill downs and simple-to-manage, Java-based architecture.
“GL Wand for PeopleSoft follows in the successful footsteps of our SAP and Oracle products, which are used by more than 1,000 organizations around the world to streamline the ERP reporting process,” said Chris Meyer, CEO, Excel4apps. “By letting finance teams build reports in an Excel interface that links to live PeopleSoft data with no coding required, less time is spent on report creation, leaving more time for valuable analysis of data and improved decision-making.”
Using sophisticated wizards and easily customized drill downs into GL data that are significantly more powerful than those of PS/nVision, GL Wand for PeopleSoft supports more efficient reporting and ad-hoc analysis. It runs directly on the application server, leveraging existing PeopleSoft security. Without middleware or data warehouse requirements, GL Wand installs in minutes and leverages a finance team’s Excel skills, so there is less reliance on IT support and greater power given to the team.
“While Oracle continues improving PeopleSoft Financials to keep users satisfied, improvements to PS/nVision unfortunately haven’t received similar attention, leaving room for better, faster and simpler reporting functionality like GL Wand provides,” said Gavin Whyte, Product Manager, PeopleSoft, for Excel4apps. “For example, in contrast with PS/nVision, GL Wand empowers finance users to edit report templates without IT help and drill down into data via Excel without having to revisit PeopleSoft, so efficiency is improved.”
GL Wand makes it easy to create, reconcile, analyze, share and present essential PeopleSoft reports, including ad-hoc, management, statutory and monthly operational reports. For more information on Excel-based reporting for PeopleSoft, visit here.
